10 reasons for hair loss

 Hair loss can be due to various factors that must be known so that you will be able to take action if necessary.

Every time you take a shower, the hair loss is such that you feel like you're going to be bald ... And we do not even talk about the moments when you brush your hair.

Although it is normal for some strands to detach from the scalp. In this article, we will quote some of the reasons why hair falls.

is it normal for hair to fall?

It can be scary for 
some people to see hair fall. However, we must know that it is not always something "bad" that we need to worry about.

It is even normal that we lose between 50 and 100 strands of hair each day.

It is a physiological process, since the hair goes through different phases: growth, stabilization and fall. Therefore, when detached from the scalp , it can be considered that they "leave some space" for new and healthy hair.

This replacement is natural and, in most cases, lost hair is recovered or replaced.

We must also keep in mind that at a certain time of the year, the amount of hair that falls may be more or less important. The loss increases in the early fall, for example.

What should worry us and push us to take action is not the amount of hair on the brush, but what the scalp looks like.

For example, if there are "white spaces" where the hair does not grow, or if the density of the strands decreases.

Why do the hair fall? Other reasons:

Leaving aside normal or expected falls by time of year, there are some factors that increase hair loss:

1. An unhealthy diet:

Hair loss can be explained by a poor diet

Restrictive diets, skipping meals (especially breakfast ) and eating fast food products are some of the main reasons for hair loss, among other health consequences.

An unhealthy diet affects both our interior and our exterior and as a result, we can suffer from dull skin and brittle nails.

2. Anemia:

Iron deficiency in the blood can also lead to hair loss.

For example, during menstruation, the amount of iron in women decreases, which can cause detachment of fibers from the scalp. A similar phenomenon occurs in people who suffer from anemia .

3. The consumption of certain drugs:

Side effects of many drugs and pharmaceuticals cause hair loss. Pay particular attention to this, especially if the drugs you are taking contain beta-blockers, heparin, amphetamines or levodopa.

4. The use of chemicals:

Some products, such as dyes or smoothing products, contain ingredients that are harmful to health (including ammonia) that weaken the strands and cause hair fall.

If your hair falls a lot, you may need to stop dyeing or do it less regularly.

5. Hormonal changes:

In addition to the iron deficiency that can occur in women during time of periods, we must add the hormonal changes that occur at this time of the month.

The same can happen during pregnancy, after delivery, at the time of menopause, or even during a disease or treatment that changes hormone levels (a treatment for fertility by example).

6. Thyroid problems:

When the thyroid gland does not work properly and its function is slower than normal, it has many health consequences.

One of them is hair loss. However, in this case, it doesn't cause "white space" in certain areas of the hair, but a generalized loss .

We find a large amount of hair in the shower, on the brush or on the pillow.

7. The stress:

Daily problems, obligations, increased tasks, sudden changes in mood  ... All this can cause stress . And with that, consequences like, for example, hair loss.

This can even happen up to several months after a stressful period or situation. More strands are noticed when extra tasks are added daily (as at the end of the year) or for a major event (a move or a wedding).

8. Lack of care:

Hair needs care to keep itself healthy.

Hairstyles with curls and braids, if you dry them every day with a hair dryer, or sleep with your hair tied, they are more likely to be weakened and weakened.

Pay attention to the use of plastic brushes with very sharp teeth and close to each other, because they damage the hair strands and tear off several of them at each passage.

9. Depression:

Believe it or not, feelings of anxiety, depression or low self-esteem also have an impact on our physical and aesthetic health.

Many capillary problems are triggered by trauma or emotional pain that we have not been able to release.

10. The time of the year:

Although we have evolved enormously since the first humans, we still have things in common with them.

The phenomenon called "phytogenetic stigma" by dermatologists is a natural response of the body to adapt to climate change.

You can see that this happens, for example, with your pet: at certain times of the year, its hairs fall more than usual, and no treatment can prevent it.

In this way, our animals stay cool in summer and warm in winter. A very similar phenomenon occurs in humans.
