Some hair loss are not permanent while some are. Hair loss can sometimes happen when a person is ill and trying to recover. Let us consider some conditions which sometimes, can lead to hair loss.

Scalp Infections

Scalp Infections can cause hair loss. Take ring work for example. A fungal infection, which is itchy, has ring-like patches and blisters. You can solve this infection by consulting your doctor.

Unstable Hormonal System

If your hormones have changed, it will radiate through your whole body including your hair. The excess production androgen (male hormone) in the body, caused by disorders such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, can tamper with hair growth cycle, which can cause hair loss.

Thyroid

Thyroid regulates the metabolism of the body and controls the production of proteins and tissues. So, if you suffer from hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, it could be the cause of massive hair fall. In most cases, the hair grows back once the thyroid disorder is treated.

Medications

Some medications including the ones taken for blood thinners, treating acne, antidepressants, and cholesterol-lowering drugs. If you think this could be the reason, consult medical help.

Natural Deficiencies

One of the most common causes of hair fall is natural deficiencies. Diets low in protein, vitamins D and B12, iron can cause excessive hair shedding. A person should consult a doctor and get blood tests done to know if they are suffering from a deficiency.

Stress
