10 Reasons Your Hair Is Falling Out and What to Do About It, According to Doctors

In our bodies, everything is connected. And if you realize you've started losing your hair, it's a good idea to know why before taking any drastic measures.

Bidras found the most common causes of hair loss and would like to share them with you.

1. Change the temperature

why?

A sudden change in temperature can be the cause of hair loss. Cold temperatures in winter and UV rays in summer make hair thinner.


What should you do?

Wear a hat whatever the time of the year. If you are going to the sauna, cover your hair.


2. The medicine

why?

Some medicines for high blood pressure, antidepressants, etc. have side effects of hair loss. After stopping the medication, the hair should grow back, but this does not necessarily mean that it should be stopped.


What should you do?

Consult a doctor.


3. Genes

why?

The most common factor of hair loss is genetics. This gene can be inherited from both the mother and the father.

What should you do?

If your parents have a hair loss problem, it is very likely that you will also suffer. You can reduce risks by eating healthy foods and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


4. Thyroid problems

why?

A hormonal imbalance in the body can be caused by:

Age despair

Endocrine disorders

diabetic


What should you do?

See an endocrinologist who will perform all necessary tests and prescribe the treatment you need.


5. Very strict diet

why?

Losing too much weight in a short period of time puts a lot of strain on the body resulting in a decrease in the immune system. This can cause hair loss. If you also have an infection, the body has more work to do.


What should you do?

Instead of a strict diet, you should do some physical activity regularly which will have a positive effect on your overall health.




6. Chronic stress

why?

Chronic stress can cause hair loss because it affects the blood circulation of the scalp. But usually, the hair is quickly restored if its loss is due to stress.


What should you do?

Don't ignore good rest and find your own ways to relax. And if you can't handle your emotional problems on your own, see a specialist who can help you.


7. Anemia

why?

Anemia can cause hair loss due to low blood circulation in the scalp. If you notice symptoms such as drowsiness, constant fatigue, or indifference, you should undergo a blood test.


What should you do?

For starters, eat more iron-rich foods (like pomegranate, beef, apples, etc.). If your condition does not improve, get a blood test and ask your doctor to prescribe some treatment.


8. Vitamin deficiency

why?

Lack of vitamins and microelements can cause hair loss. It is especially important that you have enough vitamin C to digest iron and stimulate collagen production (it makes capillaries stronger). Also, if you have a vitamin B deficiency, your hair may become brittle. Eat liver, eggs and yeast to get more vitamin B.


What should you do?

Eat different foods, especially those rich in vitamins C and B and other healthy microelements. Also consult your general practitioner and get some vitamin supplements.


9. Scalp diseases

why?

Psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis and a fungal infection (skin mycosis) are the most common diseases that cause hair loss.


What should you do?

If you have symptoms such as itching and redness of the skin, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.


10. Bad care

why?

You can damage your hair physically with low-quality hair products, use a hair dryer, and other devices.


What should you do?

Try to reduce the use of hair dryers, irons and various chemicals. In addition, consult a specialist about the type of hair care you need. There have also been many articles on SLS damage but there is no direct connection between them and hair loss.

A simple way to stop hair loss has helped a lot of people. All you need is a shampoo that has a neutral pH, rosemary essential oil, lemon essential oil and vitamin E that you can buy from any pharmacy.

Add 10 drops of rosemary and 10 drops of lemon to the shampoo. Add 2 capsules of Vitamin E and shake the mixture before using it. You should use this shampoo every two days. In a few weeks, you'll likely notice significant changes in the amount of hair you lose. But again, this method does not work for everyone, so you should consult a specialist if you have problems with hair loss.
