8 causes of hair loss
Everyone’s hair falls out, but some do not even notice it, because they have thick hair. However, others, who have rare and weak hair, can face a serious problem of baldness. So why do this happen? Scientists have identified eight main reasons for hair loss.
The first reason is shock and stress. Experiencing frequent stress, the human body produces a special substance (testosterone and norepinephrine), which contribute to the rapid hair loss. Even months later, shock and strong emotions may result in hair loss.
To avoid this, doctors advise to take the necessary vitamins and minerals. After investigation of your scalp, you can make an appointment with a therapist.
The second reason for hair loss is pregnancy. During pregnancy, the level of estrogens (female sex hormones) increases. For this reason, the hair becomes thick, smooth and silky, but after 3-4 months after childbirth, when hormone level is back to normal, the hair begins to fall heavily.
In this case, you should wait a bit. It is possible that over time the hair will go back to its former state. If it does not, it is recommended to take special preparations containing calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamin B.
A third reason for intense baldness is thyroid. Its hyperactivity or, conversely, lack of iodine can lead to hair loss, even if you are quite a healthy person. Typically, in this case hormone treatments are prescribed.
The fourth reason is autoaggression. It is this type of baldness, when hair falls unevenly on certain areas of the head. Here the matter is that sometimes the body for some reason perceives hair as a foreign body and tries to get rid of them. The treatment is steroids, and it lasts several months.
Fifth cause of hair loss for women may be an excess of testosterone DHT. This is a o-called male baldness pattern. Sometimes this happens to young girls. Of course, not all the hair falls out, but the parting and the crown become noticeable. In this case, treatment is identical to the treatment of male baldness.
The sixth reason may be menopause. The production of female hormones slows down and the male sex hormones begin to dominate in the body, which actively promotes hair loss. Hormonal therapy usually gives good results.
The seventh cause of hair loss is believed to be chemotherapy. After chemical exposure, not only hair grows slower, but also it begins to fall out. However, in general, over time, it all bounces back.
Finally, the eighth cause of hair loss is transferred severe infectious diseases. In this case, all the body resources accumulate to fight the disease and to get rid of the infection. It is very important to take a variety of vitamins to restore the deficiency in vitamins and mineral salts.
