People lose between 50 to 100 hairs each day, this is a normal case scenario and something which is not considered alarming. In case, the hair loss is more, then it is an alarming sign. Hair is made up of a protein and it consists of a hair shaft, which is underneath the scalp and root that is responsible for the growth of hair. Hair loss is not only seen in adults but in some cases, teenagers also face hair loss problems. Deficiency of essential nutrients and proteins in the diet in adolescence leads to hair loss. Some medication and treatments like chemotherapy are also responsible for hair loss. Hair loss is also caused by some chemicals that people use to look good like hair gels and hair colours.

The most common cause of hair loss is a medical condition called hereditary hair loss(androgenetic alopecia) When men have hereditary hair loss, they often get a receding hairline. Many men see bald patches, especially on the top of the head. Women, on the other hand, tend to keep their hairline. They see noticeably thinning hair. The first sign of hair loss for many women is a widening part. In rare cases, men see noticeably thinning hair. And in rare cases, women can see a receding hairline or bald patches.Physical stress
Any kind of physical trauma—surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu—can cause temporary hair loss. This can trigger a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium. Hair has a programmed life cycle: a growth phase, rest phase and shedding phase. “When you have a really stressful event, it can shock the hair cycle, (pushing) more hair into the shedding phase,”Pregnancy
Pregnancy is one example of the type of physical stress that can cause hair loss (that and hormones). Pregnancy-related hair loss is seen more commonly after your baby has been delivered rather than actually during pregnancyLack of protein
If you don't get enough protein in your diet, your body may ration protein by shutting down hair growth, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. This can happen about two to three months after a drop in protein intake, they say.Male pattern baldness
About two out of three men experience hair loss by age 60, and most of the time it's due to male pattern baldness. This type of hair loss, caused by a combo of genes and male sex hormones, usually follows a classic pattern in which the hair recedes at the temples, leaving an M-shaped hairline.Heredity
Female-pattern hair loss, called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia, is basically the female version of male pattern baldness. “If you come from a family where women started to have hair loss at a certain age, then you might be more prone to it,”Unlike men, women don't tend to have a receding hairline, instead their part may widen and they may have noticeable thinning of hairFemale hormones
Just as pregnancy hormone changes can cause hair loss, so can switching or going off birth-control pills. This can also cause telogen effluvium, and it may be more likely if you have a family history of hair loss. The change in the hormonal balance that occurs at menopause may also have the same result.Emotional stress
Emotional stress is less likely to cause hair loss than physical stress, but it can happen, for instance, in the case of divorce, after the death of a loved one, or while caring for an aging parent. More often, though, emotional stress won't actually precipitate the hair loss. It will exacerbate a problem that's already thereAnemia
Almost one in 10 women aged 20 through 49 suffers from anemia due to an iron deficiency (the most common type of anemia), which is an easily fixable cause of hair loss. You doctor will have to do a blood test to determine for sure if you have this type of anemia.Autoimmune-related hair loss
This is also called alopecia areata and basically is a result of an overactive immune system. The body gets confused, the immune system sees the hair as foreign and targets it by mistake.Dramatic weight loss
Sudden weight loss is a form of physical trauma that can result in thinning hair. This could happen even if the weight loss is ultimately good for you. It’s possible that the weight loss itself is stressing your body or that not eating right can result in vitamin or mineral deficiencies.Overstyling
Vigorous styling and hair treatments over the years can cause your hair to fall out. Examples of extreme styling include tight braids, hair weaves or corn rows as well as chemical relaxers to straighten your hair, hot-oil treatments or any kind of harsh chemical or high heat. Because these practices can actually affect the hair root, your hair might not grow back.Trichotillomania
Trichotillomania, classified as an “impulse control disorder,” causes people to compulsively pull their hair out. “It’s sort of like a tic, the person is constantly playing and pulling their hair. Unfortunately, this constant playing and pulling can actually strip your head of its natural protection: hair. Trichotillomania often begins before the age of 17 and is four times as common in women as in men.Aging
It’s not uncommon to see hair loss or thinning of the hair in women as they enter their 50s and 60s,.Experts aren’t sure why this happens.
Hair Loss is also known as alopecia. The word alopecia alludes to male pattern baldness, diminishing hair or sparseness in any furry area of the body. Alopecia areata signifies “balding in regions”. In most cases, balding is a normal sign of aging and not a disease. Since it is not seen as life-debilitating to specialists it is regularly slighted. This is lamentable in light of the fact that balding can bring about genuine misery in an individuals’ life, with some extensive mental anxiety.
Symptoms of balding include male pattern baldness in patches for the most part in circular patterns, dandruff, skin injuries, and scarring. Alopecia areata (gentle – medium level) as a rule appears in uncommon balding areas e.g. eyebrows, posterior of the head or over the ears where generally the male pattern hairlessness does not influence. In males, loss and thinning of hair start at the temple and the crown and falls out. Female hair loss happens at the frontal and parietal.
A lot of people routinely lose somewhere around 70 and 100 hairs from their scalp every day, for the most part through washing, combing, and brushing. Scalp hair begins to thin when a greater number of hairs are lost through typical shedding than the scalp has the capacity to reestablish. Around 40% of the thickness of scalp hair must be lost before diminishing of the hair gets to be perceptible.
