Why Am I Losing My Hair?

It can be very stressful when you notice your hair on the floor more often, or when you start to see your scalp in your natural part more and more. Most people’s first question is “Why is this happening?” (Likely followed by “What can I do about it?”)

There are many reasons someone experiences hair loss. Both men and women can start seeing their hair thin out at times in their lives, with varying causes.

Life Changes

Sometimes your hair loss can be caused by things that are happening in your life. If you’re changing jobs or moving, that stress can have an effect on your hair. And of course, for women, the hormone changes associated with pregnancy can cause changes in your hair.

These are things which can generally work itself out as the life stage passes. Your hormones will eventually return to normal after the baby arrives. And the stress will recede over time in most cases.


Your hair loss or thinning hair could be a matter of needing more, or less, of something in your diet. Maybe you need to increase protein, or reduce certain vitamins. A good nutritionist can help you balance your diet and find ways to on track for healthy hair.

Health Challenges

Often hair loss is caused by health issues such as male pattern baldness or other hereditary or medical issues. Many chronic health challenges have hair loss or thinning as a symptom or side effect of traditional treatment.
