The 5 Root Causes Of Hair Thinning: Symptoms, Causes & Treatments

AAccording to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), it’s common to shed between 50 to 100 hairs per day. Any more than this could mean you’re shedding more than you should, which could contribute to overall thinning hair. Hair thinning has multiple root causes including hormone imbalance, stress, nutrition deficiency, aging, and environmental effects. Laduora DUO improves hair growth with visible more thickness and strength by targeting all five root causes of thinning hair. Read on to find out which factors are affecting your hair health and learn how the Laduora DUO can achieve your hair goals!

Root Cause #1: Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones are the most common cause of hair loss for both women and men. In both sexes, the specific hormone responsible for hair loss is the same: dihydrotestosterone (known as “DHT”), a hormone that affects your hairline by miniaturizing hair follicles, causing the hairs to stop growing as they normally would and eventually fall out.


  • Irregular periods
  • Unwanted facial hair
  • Acne

How We Target It:

The DUO delivers therapeutic red light energy at 660nm to treat hormone imbalances and stimulate the release of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide increases local blood flow, reduces inflammation, and inhibits DHT production.

Root Cause #2: Stress

Hair loss caused by stress is called telogen effluvium. Unlike hormonal hair loss, it usually isn’t permanent. Telogen effluvium usually results in sudden thinning of your hair across your entire scalp, resulting in more hair on your pillow, in the drain catch or on your hairbrush.


  • Excessive shedding
  • Trouble sleeping or waking up
  • All-over hair thinning
  • Feeling tired or wired

Root Cause #3: Nutrition Deficiency

Nutritional deficiency may impact both hair structure and hair growth. Studies have reported potential associations between nutritional deficiency and chronic TE, androgenetic alopecia (AGA), female pattern hair loss (FPHL), and alopecia areata (AA).

Root Cause #4: Aging

As we age, our body experiences many changes, and our hair is no exception. Around our late 40s, the diameters of our hair follicles start to shrink and capability of hair follicles to grow hair is successively lost, leading to hair thinning and ultimately hair loss.

How We Target It:

Microcurrent is a non-invasive treatment that not only treats skin but also highly effective on our scalp! The DUO’s lead-in function of microcurrent stimulation helps safely and effectively induce hair growth by stimulating dormant hair follicles that are phasing out to become reinvigorated, through regulation of multiple hair growth factors in the scalp. 

Root Cause #5: Environmental Effects

Living in high pollution environments can lead to sensitive scalp syndrome. Symptoms include itching, dandruff, oily scalp, and even pain in the hair root, research shows. Air particles like dust and smoke can settle on the scalp and cause these symptoms. Over time, this can lead to hair damage and thinning.


  • Diffuse thinning (overall hair loss) across the scalp
  • Scalp dryness, itching, and irritation
  • Inflammation and redness at the root
  • Oil scalp
  • Dandruff
