Reasons For Hair Loss

It is not uncommon to lose hair, people actually experience this every day. Whether you are brushing it, washing it, styling it, or doing absolutely nothing with it, it is not uncommon to lose a little bit of it through natural shedding. However, if this natural loss progresses and becomes actual baldness, you may begin to get worried.


Baldness can be caused by a plethora of reasons. Some are much more manageable than others. However, in order to treat your unique situation, it is important to try to understand what is causing it.



This is the most common reason for balding. In these cases the condition is named male (or female) pattern-baldness. This is pretty predictable in most cases, and you should keep watch for any receding hairlines or bald spots. This process tends to occur with age, and is rarely sudden. Instead, you will likely see it occur gradually over the years.



Many don’t really understand all of the negative effects that stress can have on the body. Baldness is one of these affects. If you noticed thinning or balding after a particularly stressful event, it was likely tied hand in hand with the event itself.


Medical Condition

At times, baldness can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. This is typically seen in medical conditions that cause hormonal changes in the body such as pregnancy or thyroid issues. At times, bald spots may indicate a scalp condition, or a form of infection. If you are experience baldness, and you are unsure of what it causing it, it might be worth mentioning to your doctor as it may be pointing to a further health condition that you need to have addressed.


While at times, it is an actual medical condition that causes the baldness, in other cases it could be the medication or treatments that have this effect. Before you become too concerned. Be sure to read the side effects of any medications that you take regularly in order to determine if this might be what is causing the thinning or loss. 


Hair Treatment

Ironically enough, these issues may actually be linked to a treatment or style. Some products can have negative effects like this on particular types of people. In addition, some styles such as a tight bun or ponytail can cause a receding hairline.


No matter the reason for your balding, this is not something you should have to deal with for the rest of your life. Palo Alto residents who are experiencing hair loss should be sure to speak with their doctors or other specialists to understand the cause and possible treatment options.
