Causes of hair loss

Hair shedding and hair growth usually happens at the same time as a cycle. But if this cycle is dis rupted or the hair follicle is destroyed, hair loss occurs.

Some possible triggers of hair loss include:

  • Family history (heredity).
  • Hormonal changes and medical conditions.
  • Medications and supplements.
  • Radiation therapy to the head.
  • A very stressful event.
  • Certain hairstyles and treatments.
