Hair Falling Out? This Might Be Why

by Anjelina Tongco

Your confidence can take a hit when you’re dealing with falling hair. It can be embarrassing to leave a trail of hair behind wherever you go. Luckily, that doesn’t have to be your fate forever.

Falling hair is curable. There are tons of things that you can do, products that you can switch to, that will help with hair fall treatment. If you really want to solve your hair fall problem once and for all, though, your best bet is to find out what’s causing it first and then find the appropriate solution for it. 

So, what causes hair fall, you ask? Well, there are many factors for that. Let’s take a look at some of them. 

  1. Genetics - does your family have a history of going bald? If so, this might be why you’re losing your hair slowly but significantly. Unfortunately, if this is the cause of your hair fall, treatment and options to regrow hair back to normal can be pricey. 
  2. Pregnancy/breastfeeding - women who are pregnant or are breastfeeding often complain about seeing clumps of hair left on their brushes. The good news here is that this is totally normal and temporary as your hormones are adjusting and trying to get back to normal levels. More than using hair fall control products, you should focus on ensuring that you’re getting enough hours of sleep and eating a healthy, well-balanced diet. 
  3. Unhealthy scalp - scalp hair products are so underrated. People often focus on finding the perfect hair care products but fail to pair it with scalp care products, then complain that nothing is working for them. If you’re suffering from hair fall or thinning hair, it might be time to add a few scalp scare products to your hair routine. 
  4. Hair treatment gone wrong - DIY hair treatments are great if you’re on a tight budget, but they can lead to severe hair problems which include hair loss. Hair treatments like rebonding should always be done at the salon unless you have prior experience or training in it. 
  5. Lack of protein - your hair needs nutrients as much as any other part of your body. If you’ve switched to a diet that includes less protein (and calcium, and zinc), you may notice some hair fall here and there. Thankfully, you don’t have to give up your diet to get your hair back to its thick, luscious glory. Try a protein treatment or use medicated hair products to help regrow hair
