Are you loosing hair more frequently than normal?! Does this affect your mood and self-confidence?

 

It could be more than just hair loss. Loosing hair more frequently could run in families (like baldness) or it can be a sign of an underlying hormonal disorder (may occur as early as puberty or during pregnancy) or another medical condition (as in thyroid disorders). It can also be the result of certain medications. Women normally experience hair more frequent hair loss at some point in their lives but, it's more common in men.1,2

Are you really loosing hair more frequent or is it just the normal hair repair cycle? All of us mostly naturally lose about 100 hairs per day, this normally passes without being noticed as it is continuously being replaced with new hair. When this hair repair cycle interrupted or when the root of the hair is destroyed, hair loss occurs.1

Clearly, certain types of hair loss could be prevented by avoiding tight hairstyles, hair twisting, and protecting your hair from sunlight. Following a healthy balanced diet with sufficient amounts of iron and protein might also help.1,2
