HAIR FALL CAUSES
Hair fall, also known as hair loss or alopecia, can be caused by various factors. It’s important to note that some amount of hair fall is normal, as hair goes through a natural growth cycle. However, if you’re experiencing excessive hair loss, the following factors could contribute to the problem:
• Hormonal changes
• Medical conditions
• Nutritional deficiencies
• Stress and emotional factors
• Medications and treatments
• Hairstyling and practices
HAIR FALL DUE TO GENETICS:- The most common cause of hair loss is hereditary. If you have a family history of baldness or thinning hair, you may be more likely to experience hair fall.
HAIR FALL DUE TO HORMONAL CHANGES:- Hormonal imbalances in females, such as those that occur during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid disorders, PCOS can lead to temporary hair loss.
In males, the level of DHT in the body is regulated by an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone to DHT. Hormonal changes, such as an increase in DHT production or sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT, can lead to hair loss.
HAIR FALL DUE TO MEDICAL CONDITIONS:- Certain medical conditions and diseases can cause hair loss. Examples include alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease), scalp infections (like ringworm), trichotillomania (hair-pulling disorder), and conditions that cause scarring of the scalp.
HAIR FALL DUE TO NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES:- Inadequate intake of essential nutrients, such as iron, zinc, vitamins (especially vitamin D and B-complex vitamins), and proteins, can contribute to hair loss.
HAIR FALL DUE TO STRESS AND EMOTIONAL FACTORS:- High levels of physical or emotional stress, trauma, or psychological disorders can disrupt the hair growth cycle, leading to temporary hair loss known as telogen effluvium.

HAIR FALL DUE TO MEDICATIONS AND TREATMENTS:- Some medications, such as those used for cancer, arthritis, depression, high blood pressure, and heart problems, may have hair loss as a side effect. Additionally, treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy can cause hair loss.
HAIR FALL DUE TO HAIRSTYLING AND PRACTICES:- Excessive use of hairstyling products, frequent use of heat styling tools (like straighteners and curling irons), tight hairstyles (ponytails, braids) that pull on the hair, and chemical treatments (perming, straightening, coloring) can damage the hair and contribute to hair fall.
HAIR FALL DUE TO AGING:- As you age, the rate of hair growth slows down, and hair follicles may become thinner and produce shorter, finer strands of hair. This can lead to overall hair thinning and increased hair fall.
It’s important to consult a healthcare professional or a dermatologist if you’re concerned about hair loss. They can help determine the underlying cause and recommend appropriate treatments or lifestyle changes to address the issue.
