The 6 Causes Of Hair Loss

Updated on March 6, 2015

Hair Loss

Almost everyone experiences hair loss and it's not a surprise because it's common.

There are many things that can cause the hair to fall down, these include - not limited to:

- The natural hair loss

- Weak immune system

- Dandruff

- Malnutrition

- Lack of sleep

- Stress

Let's talk about each and every cause in details now.

1- Natural Fall Down

There might come some months where your hair would naturally fall down due to the sudden weather & climatic changes.

I think that the colder the weather, the more your hair would fall due to the dryness of your head’s scalp which might cause dandruff.

Dandruff is the major cause for hair loss! Read more about it in the paragraph below.

2- Dandruff

Dandruff Might be caused by many factors like the cold weather, hair products ( sprays , gels etc…) and scratching your head.

Tips To Avoid It:

- While showering, you can always avoid using your nails to clean your head.

- Avoid using too much products on your hair.

- Avoid scratching your head.

- Try to keep the scalp humid and prevent it from getting dry.

3- Weak Immunity System

Weak immunity system can affect our hair follicles and by that, the hair would easily slide to fall down. Always keep an eye on how strong your immune system is and help it get stronger by eating healthy foods and exercising.

4- Lack Of Appropriate Nutrition:

Make sure to include all the nutrients that your body needs in your lifestyle’s diet.

You can read this article below to get an idea about the foods that can be perfect for your body according to your blood's type.

5- Stress

Stress Can be a big major reason for a lot of diseases and illnesses, hair loss can be one of them.

Stress can even sometimes trigger your hereditary hair loss as well. If you're worried a lot, you can simply head to the nearest medical center to check and find out about the real causes.

6- Lack Of Sleep

Lack of sleep can cause many negative affects for your body and it’s a form of stress.

There are of course, many other reasons that can cause hair loss and the things mentioned above are the major ones.

Seek rapid medical assistance if you feel like you’re just losing lots of hair because there might be some hidden serious causes for that.

Do not over-react with this though as it might be caused by other natural things such as inheritance.
