What Causes Hair Loss?

Posted on

When your hair begins falling out, it could be a sign of a temporary condition or permanent change. You may be suffering from a lifelong condition that will alter the way your face and head look and the way people perceive you. Of course, hair loss can affect how you see yourself and the kind of self-confidence that you have.

What could be causing this change? Let’s take a look at some of the more common factors, and maybe that will help you understand and perhaps make some changes to stop hair loss in its tracks.


Sometimes, hair loss is all in the family, and there may not be a whole lot you can do about it. It’s coming for you and its inevitable, and while you can stem the tide of losing those hairs, it’s part of your genetic makeup. It always will be, and that’s not something you can change, no matter how much hair loss treatment you try.

If your father started losing his hair at a young age, and your grandfather on your mother’s side started to lose his hair at a young age, then you may be in for some early hair loss yourself. Alopecia, which is the medical name for hair loss, is largely genetic. This is the most common reason why it happens at a young age, with some people starting to lose their hair in their 30s or even their 20s.

Even so, hair growth treatment with Artisan or another established clinic can make a difference. You may be able to get some or even all of your hair back if you begin treatment.

Radiation Therapy

This cause of hair loss is more common than ever, thanks to the prevalence of radiation therapy. Since cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world, more and more people are undergoing radiation treatment, or chemotherapy, and this can make their hair fall out.

Radiation is tough on the skin cells, killing them prematurely, and the skin cells on the surface are likely to be affected the most. People who are undergoing radiation treatment will be gaunt, have unhealthy looking skin, and may be missing patches of hair.


Even worry and fear can make your hair start to vacate your head. If you want to protect your lovely airline and keep your hair healthy and vital, then you should be careful about worrying and stressing. This could be stress over time or a particularly stressful event. A tragedy, death of a loved one, traumatic experience or something similar can cause hair to slowly fall out and thin.

Poor Hairstyling

If you want to protect your hair, you have to do more than just watch how much worrying you are doing. You also have to be careful about the hair styling products you use and how your treat your hair. Poor quality shampoos and conditioners, toxic treatments and questionable coloring products can all take their toll on your hair health.

You should look at warning labels and read reviews before you use any hair products. Do your research to ensure that you are using hair products that are right for your hair and that are safe for you. That may seem like a lot of trouble to go through, but you’ll be glad you took the extra precautions when you have a full head of hair at a ripe old age.
