The most common cause for hair fall is hereditary baldness. There are two types: male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness. This kind of hair fall occurs gradually and is easy to identify. Receding hairline is the most obvious sign of male pattern baldness whereas for women, hair thinning and heavy hair loss are the prominent signs.
Unfortunately, men are more affected with inherited baldness than women and about 80% men show signs of baldness by the time they reach 70.
(B) Physical Or Emotional Stress
Stress can cause the body and mind to break down. A major sign of severe stress is heavy hair fall. It can cause around 40-60% of your hair to fall out. This kind of hair fall is called Telogen Effluvium.
Telogen effluvium is a scalp disorder that affects the scalp and hair follicles. The characterization or symptoms are hair thinning and heavy hair shedding. Intense stress (emotional or physiological) can cause the normal hair cycle to imbalance. It can occur if there is an eating disorder, chronic illness, and hypothyroidism. Some other causes include anemia, major surgery, drugs, and severe emotional disorders.
Types Of Physical Stress –
- Physical abuse or trauma
- Sudden blood loss
- Crash diets
- Strong drugs or prolonged use of medication
Types Of Emotional Stress –
- Anxiety disorder
- Bi-polar/ frequent mood swings
- Anger issues
(C) Alopecia Areata
In simpler words, Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease that causes hair to fall out in clumps. It leaves small bald patches around your scalp. The cause of this condition is unknown.
(D) Traumatic Alopecia
This type of hair fall is caused by pulling and tying your hair. Many hairstylists use heat, chemicals (e.g. bleaching), and tight hairstyles which can cause the hair follicle to weaken and fall out.
Low hemoglobin levels can cause heavy hair loss. This causal factor is easy to identify and treat.
(F) Hormonal Changes
A sudden increase of androgen hormone can cause your hair to fall out. Hormonal imbalances can occur post puberty as well, and it is observed among men more than in women.
(G) Thyroid Diseases
Since thyroid plays such an important role of balancing your hormones, any infliction or disease affecting the thyroid can cause severe hair fall.
Factors Influencing Hair Fall
There are many factors that can trigger hair fall among men and women alike. Here are some of them –
- Age – Ageing can cause your hair to fall and become grey. The hair density reduces over the years as well.
- Stress – It can cause hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline to rise which can influence hair loss. Stress can also cause a mental disorder called trichotillomania, where a person subconsciously starts to pull out their hair.
- Smoking – Smoking can cause constriction of blood vessels, which reduces the supply of blood to the hair follicles. This will eventually lead to hair fall.
- Diet – What you eat and drink plays a major role in the health and appearance of hair. A diet low in protein, iron, folic acid, vitamin D, and vitamin B12 can cause your hair to shed in large quantity. Eating and maintaining a healthy diet will prevent hair fall and help in regaining what was lost.
- Environmental Pollution – Air pollution and water pollution can make your hair dry and brittle, which can cause hair breakage and hair fall.
