Reasons You Are Losing Your Hair

Hair loss (alopecia) is a fairly common occurrence. While it's more prevalent in older adults, anyone can experience it, including children. It's typical to lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day. The main symptom of alopecia is losing more hair than usual, but this can be harder to identify than you might think. There are several types of hair loss, some are common and some are rarer, and each with different underlying causes. Depending on the type of hair loss, it can be the result of genetics, internal causes, or external causes. 

According to Healthline, the following are the causes of hair loss:

1. Direct exposure of hair to sunlight

2. Hair styles that pull the hair

3. Hair creams containing methanol

4. Hormonal imbalance

5. Nutritional defficiencies

6. Stress

When To See a Doctor

Talk to your doctor if you notice sudden or patchy hair loss or more than usual hair loss when combing or washing your or your child's hair. Sudden hair loss can signal an underlying medical condition that requires treatment.
