Besides being the single most preventable cause of significant morbidity and an important cause of death in the gener
al population, tobacco smoking has been associated with adverse effects on the skin. Recently an observational study has indicated a significant relationship between smoking and baldness.

The mechanisms by which smoking causes hair loss are multifactorial and are mostly related to:

– When you smoke, your blood carries around poisonous carbon monoxide gas which hijacks the red blood cells. This prevents the cells from carrying the right amounts of oxygen around your body. Ultimately, this will affect things like your hair as it is not being supplied with enough nutrients or fresh oxygen from the blood stream.
– Effects of cigarette smoke on the microvasculature of the dermal hair papilla.

– Smoke genotoxicants causing damage to DNA of the hair follicle.

– Smoke-induced imbalance in the follicular controlling tissue remodeling during the hair growth cycle.
