What Is Causing My Hair Loss?

For many of us who suffer from hair loss, whether you are a male or female, it is usually caused by genetics. However, for some of us, it is not caused by genetics; in fact, it is caused by a number of other factors in your life. We have made a list of factors that could potentially cause hair loss.


  • Loss of hair due to stress is usually a temporary thing, and your hair will eventually start growing back. Stress is often a cause of sudden hair loss if you or a loved one have suffered through a major traumatic experience in your life.


  • Your hair needs the proper amount of vitamins, minerals, and protein to grow properly. So, if you choose an unhealthy diet such as fast food, greasy food, etc, this can result in hair loss. On the contrary, if you decide to do a crash diet that lacks the number of vitamins and protein that you need, then this also can result in hair loss.

Hair Tools

  • Certain use of hair tools that use excessive heat can often leave your hair damaged and even brittle resembling hair loss. So, use caution when using a hairdryer, flat iron or curling iron as you can damage your hair rather easily.

Prescription Medication

  • When your doctor subscribes you a prescription medication that you need to take for any period of time, make sure to ask if hair loss is one of the side effects. Certain medications such as antidepressants are known to have hair loss as a side effect.
