- Poor nutrition. Having inadequate protein or iron
in your diet or poor nourishment in other ways can cause you to experience
hair loss. Fad diets, crash diets and certain illnesses, such as eating
disorders, can cause poor nutrition.
- Medications. Certain drugs used to treat gout,
arthritis, depression, heart problems and high blood pressure may cause
hair loss in some people. Taking birth control pills also may result in
hair loss for some women.
- Disease. Diabetes and lupus can cause hair
- Medical treatments. Undergoing chemotherapy or
radiation therapy may cause you to develop alopecia. Under these
conditions, healthy, growing (anagen) hairs can be affected. After your
treatment ends, your hair typically begins to regrow.
- Hormonal changes. Hormonal changes and imbalances
can cause temporary hair loss. This could be due to pregnancy, having a
baby, discontinuing birth control pills, beginning menopause, or an
overactive or under active thyroid gland. The hair loss may be delayed by
three months following a hormonal change, and it'll take another three
months for new hair to grow back. During pregnancy, it's normal to have
thicker, more luxuriant hair. It's also common to lose more hair than
normal about three months after delivery. If a hormonal imbalance is
associated with an overproduction of testosterone, there may be a thinning
of hair over the crown of the scalp. Correcting hormonal imbalances may
stop hair loss.
- Hair treatments. Chemicals used for dying,
tinting, bleaching, straightening or permanent waves can cause hair to
become damaged and break off if they are overused or used incorrectly. Over
styling and excessive brushing also can cause hair to fall out if the hair
shaft becomes damaged.

invade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to hair loss. Once
infections are treated, hair generally grows back. Ringworm, a fungal
infection, can usually be treated with a topical or oral antifungal
- Trichotillomania (hair-pulling
Trichotillomania is a type of mental illness in which people have an
irresistible urge to pull out their hair, whether it's from their scalp,
their eyebrows or other areas of their body. Hair pulling from the scalp
often leaves them with patchy bald spots on their head, which they may go
to great lengths to disguise. Causes of trichotillomania are still being
researched, and no specific cause has yet been found.
