Hair loss is a common problem seen in all age groups. Hair loss can be the result of heredity and hormonal changes in your body. Baldness generally refers to the excessive hair loss from your scalp and it increases with age. Hereditary hair loss with age is the common cause of baldness.

Hair Loss Causes

Most of the people normally shed 50-100 hairs each day. This condition does not lead to noticeable thinning of the scalp hair because the new hairs will be growing at the same time. Hair loss mainly occurs when the hair growth cycle is disrupted and hair follicles are completely destroyed and replaced with scar tissues.

The common factors that can lead to hair loss include:

  1. Family History (Heredity)

When you experience hair loss due to hereditary condition, it is referred as male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness.  This kind of hair loss occurs in a predictable pattern. The rate of hair loss and extent of baldness is generally due to family history and the genes you have inherited from your parents.

Pattern baldness is common in men when compared to women. Pattern baldness starts at an early age before puberty and can cause thinning of your hair and miniaturization.

  1. Hormonal Changes

Hormonal imbalance mainly affects women and can lead to temporary hair loss. Hormonal imbalance is mostly seen during pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Thyroid problems can also disturb hormonal levels in your body resulting in hair loss.

  1. Disease conditions

There are different diseases conditions that can lead to hair loss. The most common conditions include:

  • Patchy Hair Loss

Non-scarring patchy hair loss is generally called as alopecia areata. Alopecia areata occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your hair follicles leading to sudden hair loss leaving smooth, round bald patches on your scalp.

  • Scalp Infection

Ringworm infections can invade the hair and skin of your scalp leading to scaly patches and hair loss. Once the infection is treated hair generally grows back.
