Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss, in both men and women, can be a difficult matter to face. Most of the time, the individuals who are dealing with hair loss focus solely on the prevention/treatment of hair loss rather than the origin, which may aid in the prevention/treatment of hair loss. Although hair loss causes vary from person to person, there are a few main factors that cause hair loss, such as heredity and aging.

In men, the most common causes of hair loss are heredity, hormones and aging. These contribute to the potential for men to lose hair. In women, some common causes of hair loss include poor circulation, hormonal changes after menopause or having a baby, and poor diet. A few other causes of hair loss include high stress, diabetes, certain drugs, chemicals and hair dyes, vitamin deficiencies and poor nutrition, and so on.

In the case of losing hair based on genes, there may not be much that men or women can do in the way of prevention. Chances are that if a parent or close relative, or many close relatives, suffer from hair loss, these individuals with also have hair loss caused by heredity. In these instances, hair loss acts like a genetic based disease or trait that carries itself in DNA. However, not all hair loss is heredity based. In fact, some individuals may experience hair loss, while their parents and close relatives have not. Usually, this means that another factor is causing the hair loss, like high stress or poor nutrition.

When individuals experience hair loss at early ages or in drastic amounts, this generally indicates that these persons are sustaining an agent that is contributing to the hair loss. As aforementioned, along with others, causes of hair loss, especially in premature and/or drastic cases, are heredity, high stress and weakness from overworking, hair dyes and other chemicals, diseases, and so on.

Depending on the reasons for hair loss, there are different methods to attempt to treat this condition; however, it is important to first recognize the cause of hair loss in order to discern which type of treatment to use, if any. For example, if the cause of hair loss is a disease, or treatment for a disease, like in the case of using chemotherapy to treat cancer, then a treatment may not aid in the prevention of hair loss. Yet, if the cause of hair loss is from stress, then attempts may be made to prevent stress and treatment products may be used to repair already damaged hair.

Overall, hair loss, no matter what the cause, is a difficult matter to confront. Knowing the cause of hair loss, however, may contribute to the prevention/treatment of hair loss. Individuals may not have control over why they are losing hair – from heredity to aging – yet they may find the necessary means to attempt to treat the damaged hair. The multiple factors contributing to hair loss make the task of undertaking the treatment of hair loss difficult, but not impossible. Even in the most extreme cases, there is usually a solution for the cause.
