6 Common Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss can be devastating for any woman.

A loss of hair can be caused by various factors, and the most difficult part is usually figuring out what the exact cause is. Here are 6 of the most common reasons for hair loss in women…

  1. Heredity

The most common reason for hair loss is in your genes. If one or both of your parents had issues with hair loss, this is more than likely the cause of your hair loss.

  1. Telogen Effluvium

Telogen effluvium, or excessive shedding, is another common reason for hair loss. This usually happens due to constant high levels of stress, or a big high-stress event that has taken place in your life. Women who go through this might notice hair loss about 6 weeks – 3 months after undergoing excessive stress.

Another reason for telogen effluvium in women is an unbalanced diet. To be more specific; a diet which lacks protein and iron.

Look out for club-shaped bulbs in your hair as these are often a sign of telogen effluvium.

  1. Thyroid Problems

Issues with the thyroid gland can lead to various health problems, including hair loss.

  • When the thyroid gland produces too little of the thyroid hormone (Hypothyroidism) it can cause the hair to become brittle and break off easily.
  • When the thyroid gland produces too much of the thyroid hormone (Hyperthyroidism) it can cause the hair to fall out due to an overactive metabolism.
  1. Underlying Scalp Conditions

Health issues that affect the scalp can also cause your hair to fall out.

Some of the most common scalp conditions to cause hair loss include:

  • Fungus
  • Psoriasis
  • Dandruff
  1. Skin Disease

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune skin disease that causes hair loss on the scalp and body. It usually starts with one or more small, smooth circular patches on the scalp. But it can later progress to total hair loss.

  1. Menopausal Hair loss

As with most problems during menopause, hair loss can be traced back to fluctuating hormone levels. The two main hormones concerned here are estrogen (female hormone) and testosterone (male hormone). Hair loss occurs when estrogen levels decrease, and testosterone levels increase.

What can you do about hair loss?

  • In cases related to stress, try managing this stress with relaxation techniques, exercise, and making time to relax by enjoying your hobby or spending time with family and friends.
  • If medication is the culprit, consult your doctor about lowering your dosage or switching medication.
  • And if your diet isn’t great, take steps to improve it. Follow the Manna Diet as depicted in the free e-book.
  • If you are in menopause, take the all-natural Manna Menopause Support supplement to increase estrogen levels without any side effects.
  • If you have a skin condition, take the Manna GUT Support to reinstate healthy gut bacteria and digestive enzymes, because most skin problems can be related to poor gut health.

Hair can start to regrow in about 6 months, if the cause of the problem is resolved.
