Hair follicle weight is a good indicator of hair loss, and a study of men who lost hair found it was not correlated with their health, although the results could have been different for those with lighter hair.
The findings are published in the Journal of Applied Physiology, and the results were reported to be based on subjects with average hair loss and average hair growth at age 50.
One of the authors, Dr. William E. Shih, said the study is important because it indicates that loss of hair is associated with more significant health outcomes.
“The fact that it does not correlate with mortality, which is another good indication, also suggests that the underlying mechanisms for hair loss are less dramatic,” Dr. Shuh said.
“What this study suggests is that the process of hair follicles losing weight is reversible and that the body can actually recover the hair follicular volume that was lost.”
The study also found that loss rates are not significantly correlated with hair loss in the general population, which would suggest that it is not a common problem among men.
In addition, the researchers also found no significant difference in the weight of the scalp after the loss of a hair follisicle, suggesting that hair loss is not associated with any adverse health outcomes in the scalp.
This is in line with previous research, which has suggested that loss is associated in men with the risk of skin cancer and other diseases.
A study published in January 2018 in the British Journal of Dermatology showed that men with normal hair loss had the highest rates of cancer and skin cancer.
Dr. Shulman said there are a number of possible reasons why men lose hair, but one could be related to hormonal changes in the body, which could cause the hair to lose weight or even lose its structure, which he said is very common among people with hair.
Another possibility is that some of the weight loss may be due to an increase in body fat or a decrease in fat-soluble vitamins in the skin, which can also cause weight loss.
But one of the reasons why weight loss is related to hair loss could be the hormone melatonin, which plays a role in hair growth, Dr, Shuh added.
More research is needed to understand the underlying causes of hair growth loss, as well as the impact of different treatments on hair growth.
