What Causes Hair Loss?
First things first; hair loss is a normal occurrence. On average we lose about 50-150 scalp hairs per day. However, if, you start noticing significantly large amounts of hair on your clothes, hairbrush, shower drain, or any place other than your head, you may wonder what might be the cause. As it turns out, the reason could be one of many which include (but is not limited to) genetic factors, age, stress, diabetes, hormonal changes (imbalances or deficiencies), anaemia or iron deficiencies, nutritional deficiencies (such as vitamin deficiencies like zinc, or B vitamins), post-surgical recovery and post-chronic diseases. Additionally, the reasons why can further be classified by gender which can also be a pivotal factor in determining the cause of your hair fall.
Understanding Women's Hair Loss. For women, hair loss can be a frustrating and challenging experience, since long hair has historically been promoted as a symbol of beauty and femininity. Some causes could include: Genetics: it is not uncommon for women to inherit genes that make them more susceptible to hair loss as they age. However, unlike male pattern baldness, female pattern hair loss is usually noticeable in the parting of your hair, gradually thinning all over. It is characterized by thinning hair on the top and crown of the scalp. Hormonal Changes: hormonal imbalances caused by lower estrogen namely during menopause, pregnancy (postpartum), or other hormonal imbalances such as thyroid dysfunction Medical conditions: certain medical conditions, such as scalp infections (caused by bacteria, yeast or fungi), or autoimmune disorders Medications: such as chemotherapy drugs, blood thinners, or antidepressants, can cause hair loss as a side effect Hairstyling practices: Overly tight hairstyles, frequent use of heat styling tools, or chemical treatments (like hair colouring) can result in more hair loss.
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
The Underlying Causes Of Men’s Hair Loss Hair loss in men is a common occurrence at all ages. Here are some factors which may increase the prevalence of hair loss in men: Genetics: androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness as it is widely known, is the most common cause of hair loss in men. It is a hereditary condition that causes hair to thin and fall out as early as the late 20s. Male pattern baldness is characterized by a receding hairline and thinning at the crown of the head Hormonal Changes: hormonal imbalances caused by ageing (lower testosterone) or medical conditions (anaemia, scalp eczema, excess hair dandruff) can also cause hair loss in men Medications: such as those used to treat high blood pressure, depression, or cancer
