Hair Loss- Why am I Suffering?

Causes for Hair LossHair loss can be a common problem for women, no matter their age or ethnicity. In fact, about 21 million women in the United States are currently suffering from hair loss according to a recent study conducted by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. There are a number of causes for hair loss that expand from minor causes to severe causes. According to a report by Fox News, some of the causes for hair loss in women include:


  • Lack of Protein- If a woman isn’t consuming enough protein through their diet, hair loss could become a problem.
  • Over-styling- Excessive heat, coloring, and processing of hair can cause hair follicles to break.
  • Pregnancy- The unbalanced level of hormones during pregnancy can cause hair loss.
  • Autoimmune Diseases- Diseases cause immune cells to attack the hair cells and follicles.
  • Heredity- Hair loss can be passed down through heredity.
  • Anemia- The lack of iron in the system can cause hair loss in women.
  • Physical Stress- Any trauma to your body physically can be considered physical stress and cause hair loss.
  • Excessive Vitamin A- Consuming too much vitamin A that your body fails to filter out can cause hair loss.
  • Hypothyroidism- An under active thyroid gland can cause hair loss as well.
  • Emotional Stress- This type of stress doesn’t typically cause hair loss, but speed up an already existing problem.
