    Both parents smoked growing up. It was quite a different world when I grew up. Men and women walked through supermarkets smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes while shopping. People smoked in restaurants and crushed their cigarettes out on their plates. I used to dread sitting next to a booth in a restaurant having to smell a smoldering cigarette left by someone. Years ago, George Harrison made the comment that cigarettes are more addicting than heroin.

    Hair restoration doctor, Sharon Keene wrote a series of hair growth articles in the hair transplant trade magazine called "Forum". She cited cigarette smoking as detrimental to healthy hair growth. Cigarettes raise testosterone levels and constricts blood vessels. These were epigenetic identical twin studies. On the other hand, there are a lot of men and women who have smoked for years who have great heads of hair. So cigarettes most likely only have a 3% to perhaps an 8% detrimental effect on hair. Just my guesstimate.
