Why you are losing hair? Stop hair loss with acupuncture.



Hair loss is a common concern for many people, affecting both men and women at different stages of life. While hair loss can be a source of frustration and anxiety, understanding the possible reasons for it can help you take appropriate measures to address the issue. Here are some of the most common reasons why you might be experiencing hair loss:

Genetics: One of the most common causes of hair loss is hereditary hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia. This condition can affect both men and women and is often characterized by a gradual thinning of hair or receding hairline in men, and thinning hair around the crown in women.

Hormonal Changes: Hormonal imbalances can lead to hair loss, especially in women. This can be due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, or thyroid problems. In men, high levels of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) can cause hair loss.

Medical Conditions: Certain medical conditions such as alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder), thyroid disorders, and scalp infections can lead to hair loss. Hair loss can also be a side effect of certain medications, such as those used to treat cancer, arthritis, and depression.

Nutritional Deficiencies: A lack of essential nutrients such as iron, zinc, and protein can contribute to hair loss. Additionally, deficiencies in vitamins such as vitamin D and biotin can impact hair health.

Stress: High levels of stress can cause a condition known as telogen effluvium, where hair enters a resting phase and falls out in larger quantities than usual. This type of hair loss is typically temporary.

Hairstyling and Treatments: Overstyling, tight hairstyles, and chemical treatments (such as coloring, perming, and straightening) can damage hair and lead to breakage and hair loss.

Age: As you age, hair naturally begins to thin, and the growth rate slows down. This can result in noticeable hair loss over time.

Environmental Factors: Exposure to harsh environmental conditions such as sun, wind, and pollution can damage hair and lead to breakage and loss.
