Depression and Hair Loss 

Serotonin does have an impact on hair loss. While studies are still being performed, there is growing evidence that the inhibition caused by serotonin can affect our energy metabolism which may have an adverse effect on the hair follicle. 

Like all tissues, the hair follicle is made of a collection of cells and depends on the flow of energy to function. Thyroid hormones regulate this process and control the hidden energy metabolism as well as the mitochondrial function factor. A factor in stress aging in hair loss can be serotonin. Considering at all the causes of hair loss is important, which is whyCellustrious® looks at the overall health of the individual.

Hair loss l Depression and Hair Loss 

Although we know from much research depression involves low levels of serotonin, it has not always been proven in human beings that a lack of serotonin or deficiency of serotonin causes depression. SSRI’s which prolong the effects of serotonin in the brain among other places are sometimes only as effective as a placebo. 

Depression is the result of energy problems and some fine great relief with antidepressants but it may have nothing to do with the serotonin, it may have more to do with cortisol as the serotonin increases the stress hormone cortisol, which can result in a sense of extraordinary well-being and buoyancy followed by mood swings. When it comes to looking at hair loss health is very important. With energy generation and too much excessive exposure to serotonin the thyroid can be impacted. So, when we look at the level of energy we need to make sure that we are giving the body as much as it needs in the right places. With hair loss it is important to have energy and ATP going into the direction that will increase the hair in a non-oxidative way.Cellustrious® was developed by Misti Barnes tricologist, author, trainer collagen restoration therapist, along with and a biochemist with a background and hair science (L’Oreal Aveda).
