3 Possible Reasons You're Losing Your Hair


Determine the cause of your hair loss and consult professional help.

Hair loss is natural, but when it occurs at an alarming rate there may be cause for concern. If you’ve been experiencing hair loss, it may be as a result of the following:

Your Genetic Line

Androgenetic alopecia, or genetic hair loss, is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. Contrary to myth, the gene can be inherited from either your mother’s or your father’s side of the family.

Women who experience genetic hair loss tend to develop thinning at the hairline behind the bangs. The condition develops slowly, starting as early as your 20s. If you’re experiencing hair loss, look to your family line for the answer.


Underactive thyroid disease, or hypothyroidism, occurs when your thyroid gland does not make enough hormones. Your thyroid controls your metabolism, which directly affects your body’s temperature, heartbeat, and the ability to burn calories. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include weight gain, fatigue, constipation, depression, and hair loss. If you believe hypothyroidism to be the cause of your hair loss, consult a doctor.

Iron Deficiency Anemia

Iron deficiency anemia occurs when the blood doesn’t have enough red blood cells to transport oxygen throughout the body. It’s caused by heavy periods or an insufficient diet. Symptoms include fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath, and hair loss. Once you’ve diagnosed your iron deficiency anemia, combat it by eating a diet rich in iron foods and taking necessary supplements.
