What Causes Hair Thinning or Hair Loss?
Hair loss has a number of possible causes. Medical conditions, medications, scalp infections and disorders, hormonal imbalances, stress and nutritional deficiencies can all cause hair thinning and loss. That's why it's important to see your doctor to be sure there's not a treatable cause for your hair loss. In addition, some people are genetically predisposed to hair loss. If you have thinning hair, treat it kindly. Avoid pulling your hair back into a tight ponytail or bun. This puts added traction on your hair and can lead to further hair thinning and loss.
