I hate to admit it, but at some point in many nat­u­rals’ life, hair loss becomes an issue. The truth is no mat­ter how far from super­fi­cial we are, los­ing our hair nev­er feels okay. Below, find three com­mon rea­sons why you may­be expe­ri­enc­ing hair loss and what you can do about it.

Your birth con­trol is pro­mot­ing your hair loss.

Accord­ing to the Amer­i­can Hair Loss Asso­ci­a­tion there are four major hor­mon­al caus­es of hair loss one of which is due to imbal­anced andro­genic hor­mones which is behind Andro­genic Alope­cia. When the andro­gen hor­mone is not bal­anced by the oth­ers and becomes more promi­nent, hair loss occurs. Caus­es are relat­ed to tak­ing high andro­gen for­mu­lat­ed birth con­trol, oth­er pre­scribed drugs and changes due to preg­nan­cy and menopause.

FIX: Talk to your doc­tor about chang­ing your birth con­trol or employ­ing the help of anti-andro­gen drugs.

If your pre­scrip­tion drugs are effect­ing your hor­mones talk to your doc­tor about oth­er drug options that may inter­fere less with your hor­mones.

You’re crash diet­ing.

Tel­o­gen Efflu­vi­um is hair loss that can be traced to an event that has caused a strain on your body from an incom­plete diet, trau­mat­ic life events such as mourn­ing a death or child birth.

FIX: The doc­tors over at Medicinenet.com sug­gest tak­ing a mul­ti vit­a­m­in with vit­a­mins and min­er­als like B12, zinc and vit­a­m­in D may help sig­nif­i­cant­ly with this kind of hair loss. Always con­sult a health­care pro­fes­sion­al before you start an extreme diet.

Your doc­tor can best deter­mine your cause of hair loss and provide even a bet­ter, more speci­fic vit­a­m­in reg­i­men tai­lored to your own needs.

You have a scalp dis­or­der.

Some of us wait years before we treat an over­ly sen­si­tive scalp that is also prone to mas­sive scal­ing.  Some­times a wors­en­ing scalp con­di­tion trig­gers an onset of hair loss.

FIX: Vis­it your der­ma­tol­o­gist to learn what could be trig­ger­ing your scalp issues and sub­se­quent­ly your hair loss. They may­be able to provide pre­scrip­tion med­ica­tions or sug­ges­tions that can ease the prob­lem. A healthy scalp will provide room for nor­mal and expect­ed hair growth.
