8 common reasons for hair loss

This is why your losing your hair.

Here are 8 common reasons why your losing your hair.

1.Stress

Physical stress brought about by factors such as as poor diet or even lacking enough sleep can cause hair loss.

2.Damaged hair

Using the wrong relaxer for example can damage one’s hair which can in turn cause the hair to become weak and brittle. This can cause the hair to fall out if not treated properly after.

3.Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an example of physical stress that can cause hair loss. No need to worry however as the hair will grow back on its own.

4.Heredity

Hair loss can be hereditary. Just like there is the male pattern hair loss there is also the female pattern hair loss known as androgenic or androgenic alopecia.

Instead of having a receding hairline, women’s hair tends to thin.

5.Chemotherapy

Some drugs used in chemotherapy can lead to hair loss. The drugs not only kill the cancer cells but divide hair cells as well.

The hair is bound to grow up after chemotherapy though.

6.Over styling the hair

Too much heat, tight braids or even weaves can cause hair loss.

7.Age

It is not uncommon for hair loss to occur in people that are in their 50s or 60s or even older.

8.Scalp infection

A fungal infection such as a ringworm on the scalp can lead to either patching or hair loss.
