Reasons why your hair is falling out

Times may change and hair styles trends may come and go but it is undeniable that hair has been and will also be an indication of power and beauty, virility or status. Whatever your relationship to your hair, it is an indomitable force of self-consciousness and social distraction.

Both men and women suffer from hair loss for differing reasons, however, male pattern baldness is the most common hair loss condition. Thinning hair and hair loss are also common in women, and no less demoralizing.

But fret not, there are ways to treat both male and female hair loss. It all depends on the cause. Here are some reasons why you might be seeing less hair on your head.

1. Stress

Any kind of physical trauma such as surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu can cause temporary hair loss. When you have a really stressful event, it can shock the hair cycle, pushing more hair into the shedding phase. Hair loss often becomes noticeable three-to-six months after the trauma. Though emotional stress is less likely to cause hair loss than physical stress, but it can happen, for instance, in the case of divorce, after the death of a loved one, or while caring for an aging parent. More often, though, emotional stress won’t actually precipitate the hair loss. It will exacerbate a problem that is already there.

2. Hormones

About two out of three men experience hair loss by age 60, and most of the time it’s due to male pattern baldness. This type of hair loss, caused by a combo of genes and male sex hormones, usually follows a classic pattern in which the hair recedes at the temples, leaving an M-shaped hairline. Similarly for women, pregnancy hormone changes and switching or going off birth-control pills can cause hair loss. The change in the hormonal balance that occurs at menopause may also have the same result. This is due to the androgen (male hormone) receptors on the scalp becoming activated, causing the hair follicles to miniaturize and you start to lose more hair.

3. Poor diet

Our body requires various vitamins, minerals and proteins for maintaining a healthy hair. People who want to lose weight will have a lot of restrictions on their diet. In this process of dieting, the body will end up having insufficient amount of vitamins and minerals. As such, hair fall may occur. Our hair requires lot of vitamins and proteins, therefore, in order to have a healthy hair, we have to follow a balanced diet. So, even if we are on a diet, it is a must to include healthy and natural protein rich foods, as well as foods which are rich in vitamin E to keep our hair strong and healthy.

4. Over-styling

Most of us will try to experiment with our hair, such as trying out various hair styles, straightening our hair and use different hair colours. Vigorous styling and hair treatments over the years can cause your hair to fall out. Examples of extreme styling include tight braids, hair weaves or corn rows, as well as using chemical relaxers to straighten your hair, hot-oil treatments or any kind of harsh chemical or exposure to high heat. Excess brushing of the hair also makes it weak and brittle. Due to all these reasons, our hair becomes dull and dry, causing it to lose its shine and slowly leading to hair loss.

5. Genetics

Hair fall due to genetics is something which we cannot control. Baldness or severe hair fall can be inherited from our ancestors. Genetic hair loss is one of the most common problems in which our body will not be able to produce more hair. This type of hair loss can be seen in both men and women. If you come from a family where hair loss starts to happen at a certain age, then you might be more prone to it.
