Causes Of Hair Loss

You may lose hair due to various reasons. The hair loss may be temporary or permanent.

  • The first reason is scalp damage by chemical treatment of hair in salons and mishandling of hair.
  • Some other reasons relate to deficiency in diet. That is reversible.
  • Some medications and diseases can cause temporary hair loss. Most of these reasons relate to a condition or a disease or a drug. As soon as that situation changes, the hair grows back. Hair loss after pregnancy or a severe disease comes under this category.
  • Permanent hair loss is caused by conditions such as Androgenetic Alopecia.

You need not lose hope about your hair. Today medications are available that can help you correct hereditary hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) also. If nothing works, hair transplant is always an option. The main factor is to contact the doctor as soon as you observe the beginning of any hair loss.
