Abnormal hair loss can occur due to any of the following–

Lack of rest
Hormonal imbalance
Vitamin deficiency
Styling the hair in high tension styles
Scalp infections (usually fungal)
Side effects of new medications
Use of too much direct heat
General anesthesia for surgery
Post childbirth
Poor/Imbalanced diet
Over manipulation of hair

If you notice a great deal of hair loss and this is abnormal for you, it is a good idea to go to your physician for a health evaluation. Hair loss can be a sign of an underlying health issue.  And often, hair ‘growth aids’ aren’t a solution.  So before you stop popping unnecessary (and potentially harmful) supplements, check out the list of solutions, below!
Read On!>>>

  • Stress: Mediation, exercise and talking to friends/family.
  • Lack of rest: Sleep longer and relax more often. If this is due to insomnia or sleep apnea see a doctor for referral to a sleep specialist.  
  • Illness: See doctor for a health examination.
  • Hormonal imbalance: see doctor and gynecologist can provide treatment as well.
  • Heredity: See a physician or trichologist about options for scalp stimulation treatment, implanting hair, etc…
  • Vitamin deficiency: Get blood work done and develop a plan with doctor and nutritionist.
  • Styling the hair in high tension styles: Do low manipulation styles with less/no tension.
  • Scalp infections (usually fungal): See dermatologist/ trichologist.
  • Side effects of new medications: Consult with doctor for other options.
  • Use of too much direct heat: Begin wearing styles that are heat-less more often such as roller sets, updos, buns, twist/braids, twist outs and braid outs.
  • General anesthesia for surgery: Consult a doctor.
  • Post childbirth: This is normal for many people but the amounts of hair loss varies greatly. If it is excessive or causing concern speak with your doctor.
  • Poor/Imbalanced diet: Using a food chart to better plan your meals and consult a nutritionist
  • Trichotillomania: Consult a trichologist.
  • Over manipulation of hair: Do low manipulation styles that will keep your hands out of your hair on a regular basis.
