At Wigs and Hair Solutions, we help women find a solution to their hair loss with wigs, hair toppers, and more. Every woman, regardless of the severity of her hair loss, should feel confident and beautiful every day. Read on to discover a few common causes of female hair loss, and discover what you can do to combat this condition.

You’ve Started a New Birth Control

Over 25% of women who use birth control prefer pills as their method of choice. Just like any other medication, birth control pills can cause a variety of side effects, such as weight gain and nausea. Depending on the prescription and one’s family history, starting a new birth control pill could even lead to hair loss. Oftentimes, women experience hair loss as a result of their birth control pills when they are especially sensitive to the hormones in the prescription or they have a family history of hormone-related hair loss. For many women, the hair loss or thinning will end once they stop taking the birth control pill and find a new method of birth control.

You’re Wearing Your Hair Too Tight

Tight braids and ponytails might flatter your face, but they could be contributing to your recent hair loss. Hair loss as a result of over-styling is referred to as traction alopecia, and it’s primarily caused by applying a constant force to the roots of the hair. Excessively curling or straightening your hair can also cause a further fracture. In most cases, the hair will return to normal growth for women who stop over-styling their hair.

You’re Emotionally Stressed

Stress doesn’t just wreak havoc on our mental well-being, it can also take a physical toll. Perhaps you’ve experienced a traumatic event. Or maybe you’re dealing with an ongoing problem at your place of work. Deep, emotional stress can cause insomnia, rapid weight loss, constant aches, and even hair loss. Talk to your doctor about getting the help you need to return to an emotionally healthy place.
