what causes hair loss

Our Blog

Genetic factors are the most common reason for hair loss in men but there are other things that can either cause, or speed up hair loss. Below are 10 of these things.

1. Medication

There are a surprising number of common medications on the market that list hair loss as one of the potential side effects. This includes medication such as aspirin, vitamin supplements, blood-thinning drugs and blood pressure medication. If you suspect that a medication that you’re taking is causing your hair to fall out, then you should consult your GP and they’ll be able to recommend an alternative.

2. Surgery

Believe it or not, surgery can actually result in hair loss too. When combined with anaesthesia, surgery can have a very stressful impact on your body and can affect the life cycle of your hair. This is why hair loss as a result of surgery often occurs a few months later.

 3. Crash Dieting

Your diet impacts your health in every way, and this includes the health of your hair. When you crash diet, you’re depriving your body of the vital nutrients it needs to keep your hair healthy. Therefore it’s never recommended that you put your body through extreme diets if your hair is important to you.

 4. Tight Hairstyles

Tight hair styles such as ponytails, braids and cornrows can certainly cause hair loss. By pulling your hair so tight, you can permanently weaken the hair follicles and cause your hair to become thinner.

 5. Scratching Your Head

Excessively scratching your head can also cause hair loss. If you find that your scalp is itchy and irritable then there are many excellent shampoos and conditioners on the market to help with this.

 6. Not Washing Your Hair

Not washing your hair often enough causes it to become greasy and unhealthy. Going back to the point above, it will also make your scalp susceptible to spots and other blemishes that can cause excessive scratching.

 7. Hair Appliances

Not all hair loss is caused by the hair coming out at the root. Often hair loss is caused by damage and breakage, usually due to the hair being too dry or too hot. Appliance such as hairdryers, curling irons and straightening irons can all cause your hair to become damaged and break.

 8. Stress

It’s often believed that hair loss caused by stress is a myth but it’s actually the case that extremely stressful and traumatic events can results in hair loss. However, hair loss caused by stress is nearly always temporary and any shedding will usually cease within a couple of months.

9. Dying Your Hair

Excessively dying your hair is another thing that can cause hair loss. Most hair dyes contain harsh chemicals that cause your hair to become dry and this can often result in breakage and thinning of the hair.

10. Anemia

Anemia, or more specifically iron-deficiency anemia has hair loss as one its symptoms. People suffer from this condition due to iron levels in the body being too low, usually as a result of poor diet or problems with iron absorption.
