What is Hair Loss
Hair loss is a condition that can affect everyone (men and women) at any stage of life. It is important that you know the the most common causes for hair loss early to help prevent any major loss. Below are the most common causes for hair loss.
Causes of Excessive Hair Loss
Improper Hair Cosmetic Use/Improper Hair Care – Many men and women use chemical treatments on their hair, including dyes, tints, bleaches, straighteners, and permanent waves. These treatments rarely damage hair if they are done correctly. However, the hair can become weak and break if any of these chemicals are used too often. Hair can also break if the solution is left on too long, if two procedures are done on the same day, or if bleach is applied to previously bleached hair. If hair becomes brittle from chemical treatments, it is best to stop until the hair has grown out.
Hairstyles that pull on the hair, like ponytails and braids, should not be pulled tightly and should be alternated with looser hairstyles. The constant pull causes some hair loss, especially along the sides of the scalp.
