Men are more likely to lose their hair than women, mostly due to male baldness. Despite this, hair loss and thinning hair are also very common in women. You may be losing your hair and you probably don’t know the reasons for this. Not to worry, here are reasons you may be experiencing hair loss. Obviously, nobody wants to lose their hair because it is what projects our beauty. This is much more important for women:
You are likely to lose your hair after delivering your baby. This is because of the stress involved in pregnancy.
Illness, flu and stress can result in short-term hair loss. You do not need to worry too much because immediately you recover, your hair will stop thinning or receding. However, ensure you recover fully before bouncing back. Also, give you hair time to grow.
Lack of protein
Protein is essential for hair growth. If your body lacks protein, the available ones will be redistributed to other parts of the body by halting hair growth. Take more protein to reverse hair loss.
Your hair loss, whether you are male or female, may be hereditary. If your mum or dad have lost their hair, it is highly likely that you will.
Sudden weight loss
Normal weight loss may not result in hair loss. However, an unusual weight loss can lead to your hair falling off. This is peculiar with those who have anorexia. Eat a balanced diet to enhance hair growth.
This is for women who vigorously and tightly weave or style their hair. Oftentimes, there is no space for the hair to breathe. In reaction to this over styling and the use of harsh chemicals and shampoos, your hair will begin thinning.
This is normal for men and women who are in their 50’s and 60’s.
