Do you suffer from hair loss or thinning hair?
It’s normal to lose about 50 to 100 hairs a day. This may seem like a lot, but it’s part of the natural hair growth cycle. Each hair follicle goes through a growth stage and a rest stage. On average, it takes about three to five years for hair to complete this renewal cycle and fall out. This explains why we aren’t all bald – especially considering the average scalp has more than a hundred thousand hair follicles.
If you lose significantly more than 100 hairs a day, you may suffer from excessive hair loss and thinning hair. Over time, you’ll be able to feel and see this. Excessive hair loss and thinning hair can have several causes. There may be a disruption in the hair growth cycle or new hair may grow back weaker. Whatever the cause, the results can be stressful for both men and women.
Causes of excessive hair loss and thinning hair
Excessive hair loss and thinning hair can have several causes. We’ve outlined the eight most common causes below.
If one of your parents or a close relative suffers from thinning hair or excessive hair loss, you may have a condition known as androgenic alopecia or pattern hair loss. This is a form of hereditary hair loss and baldness that mainly occurs in men. It is estimated that about 70% of men will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. Most men are then over 50, but there are also men who already suffer from it when they are only in their 20s. Androgenetic alopecia is much less common in women, but the estimates are still around 40%. Hair loss in women usually starts around the menopause, but it can also be earlier.
- Hormonal changes
For women, hormonal changes are often the underlying cause of hair loss. Women are more likely to experience hair loss during the menopause, after childbirth, and after starting or stopping hormonal birth control.
Have you been feeling particularly stressed lately? Your body may be producing the stress hormone cortisol, which can cause a hormonal imbalance resulting in excessive hair loss and thinning hair.
- Unhealthy lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle is an important prerequisite for beautiful, healthy hair. Living an unhealthy lifestyle increases your risk of a vitamin and mineral deficiency. Being deficient in zinc, iron, and vitamin B in particular can have a negative impact on the quality of your hair.
- Hair care and hair styling
Using a blow-dryer, flat iron, or curling iron and frequently wearing your hair in a high ponytail or top knot can be extremely damaging to your hair. In fact, this is the most common cause of hair loss in women. Men should be mindful about wearing tight-fitting hats.
- Illnesses, infections, and conditions
Hair loss and thinning hair could also be a side effect of certain medications or could be triggered by an illness, a fungal infection, or a thyroid condition. The latter is more common in women.
What to do against excessive hair loss
Excessive hair loss and thinning hair affects both men and women, although the underlying causes may differ. That’s why there are several ways to address the problem. To improve the condition of your hair, it’s important to eat a healthy and balanced diet and to drink enough water. Managing stress and exercising regularly are also important.
A healthy lifestyle alone is usually not enough, which is where haircare products that reduce hair loss and stimulate hair growth come in.
