What Are the Causes of Hair Loss?

These hair loss causes are the most common ones.

Does your hairbrush have more hair than you do? Is a receding hairline all you see when you look in the mirror? Losing sleep over why you’re losing your hair? Here are some of the most probable causes for your hair loss.

Stress: There are three types of hair loss that can be associated with high stress levels. One is condition is called telogen effluvium; another is trichotillomania, an irrepressible urge to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body; and alopecia areata, where the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles causing hair loss.

Family history: If baldness runs in your family, you should probably accept the inevitable. Of course a healthy lifestyle and diet are helpful and, hair restoration procedures are more highly advanced and acceptable now than ever before.

Hair styling tools: Blow dryers, styling treatments, straightening and curling mixtures are all detrimental to maintaining a full, healthy head of hair.

Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes and fluctuations, especially those during pregnancy and childbirth may also contribute to extensive hair loss. Thyroid imbalances, menopause and other hormone related conditions are also often hair loss culprits.

Frequent use of chemical products: Shampoos, conditioners and even hair oils are often chemical-laden and contribute to weakening of the hair shaft, making your hair more prone to split ends, hair loss and generally damaged hair.

Junk food: Living on junk food is unhealthy for many reasons and most certainly can lead to nutritional deficiencies, which, in turn, may contribute to hair loss. People with eating disorders are also more likely to suffer from extensive hair loss.

Harsh weather conditions: Your hair is fragile and susceptible to environmental changes. Both harsh cold and heat can be damaging. Conditioning your hair as often as possible will help.

Gender: Both men and women suffer hair loss, however, women tend to lose hair uniformly – all around the scalp, and men tend to lose hair in a distinctive pattern, i.e., the receding hairline. Auto-immune conditions, which most commonly occur in men, can contribute to baldness.

Sleep deprivation: When you don’t get enough sleep, the results show up under your eyes as well as on your head. Insomnia, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders can influence the health of your hair and over time, cause hair loss.

Medications and treatments: A severe life-changing incident like an accident builds up a lot of mental pain and trauma. To add to this, the treatments and medications that follow often worsen the health of your hair. Overuse of certain drugs and heavy dosages, such as chemotherapy, are linked to excessive hair loss and baldness.
