Major Causes and Treatment of Hair Loss

Everybody dreams of having gorgeous and thick hair. However, when your hair starts falling out on your pillow, shower drain, sink or stuck in your hairbrush then it means that you are suffering from hair loss.

The early symptoms of your hair loss, especially for women are really humiliating and uncomfortable. As they thought that hair loss is caused due to ageing and only men are affected by it.

6 Major Causes of Hair Loss:

  1. Trauma, Stress, Anxiety, Depression
  2. Pattern baldness
  3. Excessive hairstyling
  4. Autoimmune disorder
  5. Changing seasons
  6. Iron Deficiency

Trauma, Stress, Anxiety, Depression:

Trauma could be emotional or physical. Emotional trauma includes; high fever, tension, depression and physical trauma includes; the death of any beloved one, got any wound, suffered from an accident, experienced surgery etc.

Pattern Baldness:

Pattern baldness is caused due to hair loss genes, which are inherited from your parents. It’s really difficult to treat pattern baldness.

Excessive Hairstyling:

Too much hairstyling may lead to damaged, weak, rough and hair thinning. Tight braids, blowouts, hair dyeing treatments, hair setting sprays, creams, gels and waxes are all the techniques to damage your hair. And ultimately, you have to suffer from hair loss.

Autoimmune Disorder:

Autoimmune disorder can also cause hair loss. Alopecia Totalis, Alopecia Areata and alopecia universalise are the different kinds of autoimmune problems.

Alopecia Areata leads to round bald patches, Alopecia Totalis causes hair loss and alopecia Universalise results in complete hair loss all over your body.

Changing Seasons:

You must have observed that you have to suffer from hair loss, especially in winters and autumn. But if your hair loss stopped in a couple of months then there is nothing to worry about because it’s seasonal hair loss.

Iron Deficiency:

Iron is very important for our body, as it creates haemoglobin and ferritin. Ferritin is the stored form of iron that is used only for our hair regrowth process.

If you don’t eat iron-enriched foods then there will be ferritin deficiency in your body, and eventually, you have to suffer from hair loss.
