The Causes of Female Hair Loss

The Causes of Female Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in female some of the common causes are:

1.)    Childbirth:

Many females start losing their hair after pregnancy. This occurs because during the pregnancy period estrogen levels and progesterone levels rise. This activity puts hair in resting phase. After childbirth, new strong hair begins to grow, causing those hairs that are in the resting phase to fall. Typically, this occurs three to six months post pregnancy, and hair will return to its normal growth. To avoid hair loss after the pregnancy, avoid pigtails, braids, and tight rollers, and increase you intake of fruits, vegetables, and supplements containing flavonoids, zinc, vitamin B complex, vitamin E, Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, and biotin supplements. Also a revolutionary laser comb for hair regrowth and stop further hair loss.

2.)    Stress:

A high cause of hair loss in women is stress. Stressful situations like physically ill, or emotionally disturbed, hair is unhealthy and scalps are dry this can lead to hair loss. Hair is one of the first parts of our body that demonstrate stress. In other words, it is delicate to stressful situations.  Once stress levels are under control, hair should return to its normal hair growth and hair loss cycle.

3.)    Illnesses:

There are numerous illnesses that can cause hair loss in women.  They include anorexia, bulimia, hypothyroidism, anemia, hepatic or renal failure, and viral, fungal, or protozoan infections.  Extremely high fevers can also cause hair loss.  Once these illnesses are under control, normal hair growth should return.

4.)    Diet:

What we eat and what we don’t eat also has bearing on how healthy or unhealthy our hair is.  Protein, essential fatty acids, and zinc are all integral elements in the promotion and maintenance of healthy hair.  Therefore a lack of these elements can cause hair loss in women.  Excess amounts of vitamin A, any amphetamines, antimitotics, anticholesterol medicine, and anesthesia can all cause hair loss on a temporary basis.

5.)    Hormonal Changes:

Discontinuing birth control pills, having an abortion or a miscarriage, and stopping or starting hormone replacement therapy can all cause hair loss in women.  Because all of these things cause changes in hormone levels, they can all be direct causes of hair loss.
