Having a greater volume of hair, it is evident that the fall is more frequent in women and in most cases it intensifies when the cold seasons of autumn-winter arrive.

Normally we lose all our hair throughout the day, although it is something that happens more frequently in women: between 50 and 80 hairs are lost daily, which are replaced by new ones, with a duration of average life between 2 and 7 years. But when this situation becomes extreme, it is time to be careful. These are some of the causes that can affect you.

certain causes

Stress: Anxiety and tension affect the body more than you think and can cause up to three quarters of your hair to fall out. This type of hair loss is easy to identify: whole strands tend to fall out while you comb or apply shampoo.

Hormonal problems: Changes in the hormonal balance can mean that, from one moment to the next, the hair no longer looks as healthy and strong as before. Conditions such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and even the use of medications such as birth control pills are linked to hair loss.

Thyroid: They stimulate hair follicles and regulate hair cycles. This is why it is not uncommon for women with conditions such as untreated hyperthyroidism to lose hair more frequently than usual. But this must be confirmed by a specialist.

Subsistence allowance: An unbalanced or very aggressive diet can prevent the body from getting enough nutrients, which directly affects hair loss. That is why it is very necessary to incorporate the right amount of vitamin A, iron and protein in the diet.

Anemia: This disease can lead to hair loss due to a decrease in hemoglobin levels. In this way, the hair follicles stop receiving the necessary nutrients and, as a result, the hair falls out.
