What Causes Female Hair Loss?
Hair loss can be very traumatic, and this is not just a problem for men. Women today are experiencing hair loss at particularly vulnerable times, such as after pregnancy or during menopause.
6 Culprits Of Female Hair Loss:
The leading cause of hair loss is a genetic predisposition of hormonal balances and imbalances. Despite previous myths, both your father and mother’s side can contribute to this genetic predisposition of hair loss.
We know that stress increases your levels of testosterone which can interrupt your hair growth. In addition, stress or trauma can constrict the blood supply to the capillaries and limit oxygen and nutrient nutrient absorption of the hair follicles.
Hair growth can be inhibited through rapid weight loss, poor nutrition/diet and a high consumption of animal fats.
#4. Health & Medication:
The most common health related cause of hair loss is thyroid diseases and the adverse side effects from its medication. You may also find that some medications for heart disease, diabetes, and blood pressure can contribute to your hair loss.
Pollutants in the water and air, along with ongoing exposure to metals, chlorine and minerals may lead to hormonal imbalances that can contribute to your hair loss.
#6. Life changes:
Temporary hair loss can occur from six months to up to a year after giving birth as your hormones are changing. Menopausal women may also experience hair loss as a result of hormonal shifts.
