Does Poor Posture Cause Hair Loss?

Updated: Dec 11, 2020

Does treating hair loss really have to be all that complicated?

Prescription drugs, topical treatments galore, laser helmets, and pretty much anything else that you can think of has been used to try and remedy hair loss. While some of these treatments are effective to a degree, unfortunately more often than not, most do not yield the results that people expect. But what if you didn’t have to spend thousands of your hard-earned dollars and countless hours using treatments that aren’t guaranteed to work?

That may sound like a stretch, but it might be more realistic than you think.

Although the common belief is that hair loss is primarily caused by androgens (specifically dihydrotestosterone; DHT), recent developments suggest that the underlying cause may be completely different than we originally thought. It might be because of poor posture.

In this article, we are going to be breaking down the theory that poor posture, as opposed to DT, might be the underlying cause of hair loss. Taking a look at the research will help us determine how and why it may cause hair loss as well as what we can do to fix it.
