Hair loss is a new issue that today’s generation faces but it has become more prevalent today. The problem is mostly affecting the women who remain doubtful about the exact cause behind hair loss. Hair thinning and hair fall are two big concerns affecting the women at large.

On average we lose around 80 strands
aday, if you start shedding significantly more than that or you notice they aren't growing back, well, that's when things start to get a bit hairy. According to the latest research, at least 1 in 3 women will suffer from hair loss or reduced hair volume.

Let’s take a look at possible reasons why your hairs are falling rapidly.

Hormonal Imbalance: - A hormonal imbalance can lead to multitude of annoying health and beauty issues, from adult acne to weight gain. If your hormones are out of wallop the effects will exude throughout the whole body (and of course, that includes your hair).

It has been found that hormones play an immense role in controlling the hair growth cycle. Oestrogens (female hormones) are found to be 'hair friendly' and keep hairs in their growth phase for the optimum length of time. On the other hand, Androgens (male hormones) are not very hair friendly and can shorten the growth cycle.

An excess of androgens (which could be caused by an endocrine disorder, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) can lead to hair loss.

Stress: - This is quite obvious and a great population in this world are stress-loaded.
On medical terms, increased stress means increased androgen levels that eventually result into hair loss. Stress may also trigger scalp issues, such as dandruff, upset eating habits and muddle with the digestive system – all of which can have an adverse impact on hair.

Hypothyroidism: - The thyroid gland helps to control the body's metabolism by controlling the production of proteins and tissue use of oxygen. Any thyroid imbalance
 can therefore affect hair follicles.

Anemia: - One of the most common causes of hair loss in women is an iron deficiency. Iron is necessary for the production of hair cell protein.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency: - A deficiency of vitamin B12 can make the person feel tired and low on energy. It is also found to
taketoll on your hair.

Ageing: - If you're going through or about to enter the menopause, changes in your body may also have an effect on your hair. Hair loss becomes more prevalent leading up to and after the menopause.
