The causes of hair loss - why does your hair fall out

Hair loss can indicate certain illnesses and conditions in a woman:

  • Pregnancy and postpartum period – hormonal restructuring of the body. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Many women actively begin to lose their hair 1-4 weeks after childbirth. This condition may persist for 5-12 months after delivery. After this period, the hair recovers.
  • Chronic diseases-it could be autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases that trigger hair loss, and other disorders.
  • A polycystic ovary is a set of symptoms that are characterized by a malfunction of the ovaries. It occurs as a result of a malfunction of the pancreas, adrenal glands, hypothalamus, and pituitary gland. Small cysts form in the ovaries. This causes the ovaries to increase in size. There is also an imbalance of hormones. Estrogen decreases and testosterone increases, resulting in focal alopecia.
  • Anemia – or as it is called anemia. It is a condition in which the number of red blood cells decreases and hemoglobin decreases. Iron deficiency anemia leads to hair loss, brittle nails, deterioration of the skin. The following tests should be taken to detect this condition. Ferritin. If it is deficient, consult a doctor to prescribe the correct dosage of iron preparations. General blood test. Anemia can be a consequence of other conditions. It can occur during menstruation, dramatic weight loss, vegetarianism, intense physical activity.
  • Hypothyroidism is an autoimmune disease characterized by a lack of thyroid hormones. If left untreated, it can lead to serious health problems. This condition causes the hair to lose an extensive amount of hair. Hyperthyroidism – excessive production of hormones, also reflects badly on the body of women. And there will also be an intense loss of hair. In order to rule out these pathologies, it is necessary to take blood tests for thyroid hormones. And if there are any abnormalities in the tests, it is necessary to consult an endocrinologist.
  • Fungal lesions of the scalp are conditions of the scalp, which appear when the immune system is reduced. Microorganisms appear on the scalp, which damages the hair follicles. And as a result, round bald spots form on the scalp.
  • Stress and emotional overstress – When we are stressed, the scalp muscles contract sharply, then contract just as sharply, causing squeezing of the hair sac. The root of the hair is severely damaged by this exposure. Consequently, hair loss occurs.
  • Medication – long courses of medications, or improperly chosen dosage of medications leads to hair loss, and other effects as well. These can be antibiotics, antidepressants, hormones, laxatives, diuretics, and many other drugs.
  • Traumatic and cosmetic factors – frequent use of styling products, tight hairstyles, coarse combing, harsh coloring, frequent use of hairdryers, curling irons. Ignoring headgear during the cold season. These are tight hairstyles, styling with nail polish, gel, and other chemicals, coarse combing, coloring or perming, drying with a hot hairdryer. Don’t get carried away with wigs and artificial strands.
  • Chemotherapy and radiation exposure – When undergoing chemotherapy, hair falls out. But this is temporary. After treatment ends, the hair grows back.
    If you lose weight medically, be careful, because such drugs contain diuretics and laxatives, which are detrimental to the hair.
  • Genetic predisposition, bad ecology, the insufficient blood supply to the hair follicles – also provoke intense hair loss.

All of the above-mentioned factors lead us to the conclusion that the hair loss problem must be treated as a complex issue, and health pathology, which influences hair loss, must be excluded.
