Reasons for Hair Loss
Thinning hair and hair shedding is also termed, alopecia.
The contributing factors for this condition are varied and not all are permanent. Androgenetic alopecia refers to the genetically related hair loss that 70% of men and up to 50% of women experience and unfortunately, that one is permanent.
Other, less-common reasons you may notice that your hair is thinning, or even see sudden loss of patches, are usually health related. Telogen effluvium is the medical term to describe a temporary change in the number of hair follicles actively growing hair, and consequent hair fall or thinning. Most often, sparsity of hairs is noticed more on the top of the head and at hair part, than at the temples, back or sides. Common triggers for a significant phase of hair loss can be either mental or physical stress such as emotional trauma or surgery. Certain vitamin deficiencies, thyroid dysfunction and anemia have also been linked to hair loss in women. Medications such as antidepressants may lead to temporary hair fall and hormonal shifts during pregnancy or menopause are often to blame. It is well worth discussing with your doctor any possible health-related causes for hair loss, especially if you notice a sudden change. When related to a temporary cause, hair growth can often be restored through nutrition, medications such as Minoxidil or Propecia, and medical grade shampoo.
