5 Reasons That You May Be Experiencing Hair Loss

It’s time to get to the root of your hair loss!

People experience hair loss for many different reasons, and all depending on the unique circumstance of the individual. If you’re experiencing hair loss, the first thing you need to do is figure out why. Once you and a doctor have determined the cause, you can move on to dealing with your hair loss.

Excessive Styling

Some forms of hair loss is simply the result of excessive styling. Hairstyling tools such as straighteners and curling irons or products such as gels, mousse, or certain colors can damage the hair shaft, impeding growth. Tying your ponytail too tight, using inefficient styling tools are all habits that could potentially damage the growth cycle of your hair.


Anemia is the most common blood condition in the U.S. While it affects about 3.5 million Americans, women and young children are at an increased risk. It’s a result of low iron intake in one’s diet and many women may be anemic due to heavy menstruation or inadequate folic acid in the body. Less oxygen is able to reach your organs, and this can result in the loss of multiple hair follicles since they tend to be weak and break easily.


During menopause, estrogen levels are extremely low and this can make hair follicles dry and cause hair loss if left unnoticed. It’s important to use mild shampoos, condition regularly, and maintain a healthy diet while your body goes through this transitional period.

Protein Deficiency

Hair is made of proteins called keratin, and when our bodies do not receive enough protein, it gathers it from other protein heavy sources such as our hair. This causes our manes to become brittle, and can even lead to excessive shedding if the diet isn’t corrected.

Rapid Weight Loss

Crash dieting or losing a large sum of weight quickly can adversely affect the growth of your hair. This is because, usually these diets deprive your body of essential nutrients or put a ban on eating certain food groups which then impact your hair growth.
