Do you feel like your hair is shedding everywhere? In your hair brush, in your shower drain, on your pillow and on all your clothes? This does not necessarily mean that you’re going bald since you are supposed to loose 100 strands of hair everyday no matter what you do. But if you notice a shift in your normal hair pattern, thinning in certain areas of the scalp and/or the appearance of bald patches, it is usually a sign of a hair loss condition.
Apart from genetics and common hair loss disorders, here are some the reasons which dermatologists find contribute to your hair loss >>
Keeping Your Hair Pulled Back
Any hairstyle that pulls your hair back and puts pressure on your root such a tight ponytails and braiding puts additional stress on your head and leads to what is known as traction alopecia. People who already have fine hair which isn’t as sturdy is more susceptible to this kind of hair loss.
Delivering A Baby
People who have just had a baby usually experience periods of “aggressive shedding” due to the drop in estrogen levels and the stress that your body goes through during child birth. The good news is that your hair will grow back into it’s normal fullness by the time your baby turns one.
Working out is great for your health but can also be very damaging if you are pushing your body beyond its limits and not getting enough rest. If you are constantly exhausted, your body goes into survival mode and takes energy from things like hair growth to keep functioning.
Sudden Weight Loss Or Diet Change
If you loose a lot of weight rapidly or are not getting enough nutrients as before, it can be very scary and stressful for your body and potentially lead to hair loss. On the other hand, if you lose weight in a healthy way, your body will find a new baseline and won’t experience any hair loss.
Day to day stress does not necessarily affect hair loss but when something notably stressful happens, it can alter your normal hair cycle and lead to hair loss.
