What is the main causes of Hair Loss?

What is the main causes of Hair Loss?
HairStyles And HairCut

A normal person will lose between 80 to 140 hairs per day, because 70% of hair is in growth phase and 10% is in shedding phase at any given time. However, any significant change that alters the normal growth cycle of hair, or permanently damages the roots of the hair (the follicles), can result in excessive hair loss of over 100 hairs a day, which may be temporary or permanent.

This are the main cause of Hair Loss such as genetics, stress, age,trauma to the hair,certain drugs or diseases,skin conditions & other some cause.


  About 95% of hair loss from the scalp comes from heredity. If your grandma, grandpa, mom, or dad has lost their hair, you may inherit the genetic tendency to lose yours as well. Balding can skip generations, and its incidence is random in terms of siblings. For instance, one brother could go bald in his 30s and another may keep a full head of hair his entire life.

Surgery, illness and a variety of mental stressors can cause excessive hair loss. Those with the rare anxiety disorder trichotillomania, often pull their hair out in clumps to the point of baldness.

 The aging process causes the breakdown in many of the skin's functions, including hair follicles. Many people over 50 have thinning hair because their hair follicles are less effective and therefore hair grows more slowly. Also, mature hair changes in texture and tends to break more easily.

Excessive daily hair loss

It is generally accepted that each person has between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on their head (blonds have the most, followed by brunettes and redheads). Advice about how many strands it is normal to lose per day varies, but recent studies suggest an average of 100. In order to maintain a normal volume it must be replaced at the same rate. The first signs of hair thinning that people will often notice are more hairs than usual left in their hairbrush after brushing, or in the basin after shampooing. Styling can also reveal areas of thinning, such as a wider parting or thinning crown.

Skin conditions

A substantially blemished face, back and limbs could point to cystic acne. The most severe form of the condition,  arises from the same hormonal imbalances that cause hair loss, and is associated with DHOTI production., a condition in which an excessive amount of sebum is produced and builds up on the scalp (looking like an adult  is also a symptom of hormonal imbalances, as is an excessively oily or dry scalp. Both can cause hair thinning.
