While this is the case, let us first look at the different types of hair loss including:

  • Genetic

Hereditary is the most common cause of hair loss. This occurs progressively with predictable patterns, such as receding hairline in men and hair thinning at the top of the scalp in women.

  • Alopecia

Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss which can affect just your scalp or your entire body. One type of this is alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that results in small, patchy bald spots. There’s no cure for this but natural products as DIY home remedies for hair growth and other treatments can help the hair grow back.

  • Male Pattern Baldness

This is the most common type of hair loss in men, associated with genes and sex hormones. It usually starts with a receding hairline or hair thinning on the crown.

  • Reactive

This type of hair loss is triggered by some type of change. Factors such as stress, nutritional deficiency, certain medications, or rapid weight change can interrupt your hair regrowth or cause the hair to fall out.

Reasons Why Your Hair Might Be Falling Out

Reason 1: Hormonal imbalance

Hormonal imbalance can be a host of many health issues including those that manifest in physical appearances, like acne and hair loss. A byproduct of testosterone known as DHT or dihydrotestosterone, is the hormone responsible for hair loss, disrupting the hair growth cycle. It can either reduce the growing phase or increase the resting phase. Supplying your hair with a topical preparation of natural herbal extracts and essential oils may help address this.

Reason 2: Sudden Weight loss

Some degree of hair loss can happen upon rapid weight loss. Excessive hair shedding is one of the signs of nutrient deficiency. When calories and micronutrients are significantly reduced during your diet, these may trigger hair loss.

Reason 3: Pregnancy (Postpartum hair loss)

During pregnancy, your hair may look thick and healthy because of high levels of hormones. Once your baby comes out, your hair can immediately fall out all at once. That’s because your hormones are getting back to normal. This condition is called postpartum hair loss. Certain natural hair fall remedies for hair regrowth with herbal extracts and essential oils can help solve this.

Reason 4: Pills

Taking contraceptive pills can influence your hormones. Women who are predisposed to hormonal-related hair loss or especially sensitive to the hormonal changes, can experience hair loss while using the pills or after they stop taking them. Hair shedding caused by pills are usually temporary and can be treated by a natural topical scalp lotion rather than some home remedies for hair growth.

Reason 5: Age

As we age, hair health begins to change. Age can influence the life cycle of hair follicles, slowing the rate of hair growth. However, it is important to know that hair loss is a normal part of aging. But natural products with ingredients that help promote hair growth may be used to delay hair loss or better yet, address graying hair.
