Hair Loss Causes
You may not be knowing that all men and women lose 20 and 100 hair each day without noticing it. The question is what cuases hair loss in women and men?
Our hormones govern the development of hair that appears after puberty. The male hormone, testosterone, governs beard, body hair and hair in the armpits. The female hormone, estrogen, generally prevents hair growth on the chin and encourages it to grow on the head.
Occasionally women develop signs of baldness when estrogen levels drop. Treatment with estrogen has been successful in restoring hair growth in women.
- Mothers of newborn babies are prone to temporary hair loss after the delivery. This is because, when they are pregnant, their oestrogen level goes up. This stops their natural hair growth cycle. After the birth, their oestrogen drops again, and the hair cycle resumes.
- You may be losing hair due to thyroid dysfunction.
- Deficient in folic acid and iron deficiencies may cause lose hair.
- Excessive intake of Vitamin A can be a reason for balding.
- Hereditary is the most common cause of hair loss. You are more likely to have it if either or both of your parents had this problem. The thinning may start as early as 20s.
- You may shed large amounts of hair every day due to what is known as telogen effluvium, a phenomenon that occurs after pregnancy, extreme stress, major surgery, drastic weight loss or a side effect of some medications, such as antidepressants, beta-blockers, etc. may result in losing hair.
- It can be caused due to dandruff, psoriasis, and fungal infections such as ringworm.
