Causes of Hair Loss

Women causes:

Everyone loses it. It’s a normal cycle. But what are the reasons for women losing it? These are some conditions to look out and treat medically.

1.       Hereditary - the gene can be inherited from your mother's or father's side. The symptoms: develop thinning at the hairline behind the bangs. It can start as the early 20s. You can slow down the process by applying minoxidil (Rogaine) to the scalp twice a day of a lower-strength formula and works on both women and men.

2.       Hypothyrodism -  a very common disease in women, slowing down your body’s metabolism and producing too little thyroid hormone can cause weight gain, fatigue, constipation, depression, and concentration problems. Hair, nails and skin may become fragile and more prone to breakages. It was often noticed in women over 50s but nowadays it may appear at a younger age.

3.       Iron Deficiency  - if you don’t eat enough iron-rich foods or you suffer from heavy periods. Iron gives enough red blood cells which are responsible for transporting oxygen and giving you energy. Iron deficiency causes a lot of distress like extreme fatigue, weakness, pale skin, headaches, difficulty concentrating, cold hands and feet.

4.       Auto-immune diseases - like psoriasis (you will see an excess of thick white scale on the scalp) and alopecia areata cause the body to attack hair follicles – a very common disorder in both men and women. One of the causes is stress or other illnesses. Inflammation makes growth difficult. Skin conditions that lead to loss include seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff – greasy yellow scales) and fungal infections such as ringworm recognizable by red patches on your scalp (a fungus you can get by touching an infected person or animal).


Other Causes of hair loss

Stress is a big offender, so don’t make it worse by stressing yourself over hair loss. Relax. Load up your vitamin and mineral levels. If you notice sudden hair loss, this can be a sign of other diseases.
