It’s not a big deal to lose some hair each day. But if you start noticing it falling out in clumps or your scalp is a bit sparse in certain spots, you should be concerned. Men aren’t the only ones to lose hair. Women can have hair that thins and even encounter bald spots too.
Getting to the root of the problem, pardon the pun, can help you find a solution. Some things might be beyond your control as well since they are a natural part of life. They can be genetic or reactive, caused by some kind of trigger in your life. Perhaps one of these 5 reasons is why you’re losing your hair.
1. Hormonal issues
Hormones do all kind of crazy things to our bodies. They regulate your hair growth cycle too. If you have an excess of androgens, it will cause hair loss. This is usually stamped in your genes, but an endocrine disorder can also make for hormonal problems. A visit to your doctor can help you rule out anything serious, though as you age and your hormones fluctuate or you have babies, your hormones can be cruel to your hairline.
2. Too much stress
Stress will trigger your hormones and guess what? It will raise those androgen levels too. Scalp problems are quite common when you’re all stressed out so take a moment to try to tackle what’s stressing you out. By managing stress appropriately, you can head off hair loss.
3. Not enough iron
If you want beautiful skin and hair, you have to eat like you want it. Make sure you’re always getting enough of the right nutrients. In particular, many women don’t get enough iron. Your hair needs it to produce proteins that nourish it so eat more spinach and lean meats.
4. Thyroid problems
Your thyroid gland is what regulates the metabolism and controls protein production and oxygen in your tissues. Imbalances in the thyroid can cause problems for your hair follicles. This is why it’s important to go for regular checkups with your doctor so you can be sure that if you have an problems with your health that could cause hair loss, you nip them in the bud.
5. Major weight loss
If you lose a lot of weight fast, whether you planned on it or had the stomach flu for a week, you will likely experience hair fall. When you want to drop some weight, aim to do it in a steady and healthful way to avoid hair loss problems.
