The Main Causes Of Hair Loss In Men & Women

Telogen Effluvium hair loss can occur as a result of high levels of stress.  This is usually a temporary condition but we are unaware of any specific medical treatment to avoid this occurring. 

Alopecia Areata hair loss appears as bald patches when the body's immune system attacks the hair follicles.  It can be caused by numerous factors, including high levels of stress.  In many cases the hair eventually grows back. 

Trichotillomania hair loss is the urge to pull your hair out.  It can be a way of dealing with negative or difficult feelings including stress, frustration, loneliness and boredom.   

Hair loss during chemotherapy is a common side effect of some chemotherapy treatments.  There are options that your doctor will discuss with you to try and avoid hair loss but none has been 100% effective.  

Hair loss in pregnancy can be experienced by surging oestrogen and progesterone levels in the body which trigger a response in the hair follicles, causing hair to become brittle. It can also be a side effect of iron deficiency, severe morning sickness, gestational diabetes and thyroid problems. 

Male pattern baldness / female pattern baldness.  Male pattern baldness typically starts with a thinning hairline. Female pattern baldness usually starts with your parting looking wider.  In some cases, women also see thinning around the temples. Women rarely lose all their hair. 

Hair loss due to medicines - There are side effects to some medicines which can cause hair loss.  If you start to see your hair falling out, contact your GP to see what he or she advises. They may be able to prescribe an alternative medicine without the nasty side effects.
