Have you been noticing your hair thinning or receding in areas of your head? If so, it’s not uncommon if you’re a woman and this is happening to you. If you’re a woman who is experiencing hair loss we know this can be very devastating for you. You may begin asking yourself, “Why is this happening to me?”
It is important to pursue a correct diagnosis as to why it is coming out. After you get a correct diagnosis you can address the exact issue, saving you time and money. There are several reasons why you may be losing your hair:
- Genetics and hormonal factors play a large role in why you may be losing your hair.
- Hairstyle habits may accelerate your hair loss. If you wear your hair in tight ponytails it can lead to traction alopecia due to the disproportionate amount of tension your are putting on your hair at the outer edge. This hair loss can be temporary or permanent.
- Stress can cause hair loss in large clumps or it may cause you to pull your hair out without realizing it.
