Why you might be losing your locks
You finish your morning blowout and, as you twirl your tresses into place, you can’t help but do a double take in the mirror. Is the part in your hair getting wider?
Female hair loss is a daunting experience for many women. Factors like stress or pregnancy can be one of the many reasons why why you’re seeing more hair in your brush than usual, but if you’re noticing any hair loss you should make an appointment with your healthcare provider right away.
Also known as female-pattern baldness, this is rooted in genetics, with hormones potentially playing a role.
A sudden drop in calorie intake can trigger clump-like hair loss.
Also known as traction-based loss, this is commonly caused by wearing tight braids or ponytails daily.
An overactive or underactive thyroid gland can cause hair loss all over the head due to hormonal imbalances. Once the hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism is treated, though, the hair tends to grow back.
Hair loss can happen during and after pregnancy due to hormonal fluctuations and can cause clump-like hair loss rather than bald patches or widening parts.
