Why You Might Need Hair Pieces
Common Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning
Hair loss and hair thinning is not exclusive to men. In fact, women make up 40% of hair loss cases. There are a number of factors that can induce hair loss and thinning, some genetic and some can be managed with lifestyle changes. A few are:
- Autoimmune Disease
- Cosmetic Procedures
- Medical Conditions
4 Common Hair Loss Conditions
The aforementioned factors can all increase your chances of thinning hair and hair loss, but could also contribute to the following four hair loss conditions.
Both men and women can be affected by androgenetic alopecia. In men, it usually presents as baldness. However, women with androgenetic alopecia experience diffuse thinning across the head.
Women who are pregnant, have ovarian cysts, or take high androgen index birth control are at a higher risk of contracting this hair loss condition. However, it is thought to be mostly caused by genetics.
Androgenetic alopecia caused by androgens, a male hormone that is typically only present in small amounts. Increased levels of androgens and DHT miniturize hair follicles and create thinner hairs.
Telogen effluvium is predominantly caused by traumatic events, like childbirth, malnutrition, severe infection, and extreme stress. However, it can persist for years without a triggering factor or stress.
This hair loss diseases causes the hair in the growing or anagen phase to shift to the shedding or telogen phase. It takes about 6 weeks to 3 months for telogen effluvium to be in effect after a traumatic event. It’s possible to lose handfuls of hair at a time. You can also see complete remission if detected early enough.
This hair loss condition is typically associated with chemotherapy, although it occurs after anything that impairs the hair follicle’s ability to do mitotic or metabolic activity.
Chemotherapy targets cancer’s rapidly dividing cells. Unfortunately, your hair also has rapidly dividing cells while it is growing so it is damaged in the crossfire.
Anagen effluvium is typically characterized by the tapered fracture of hair shafts. As a result of damage, the hair shaft narrows and fractures at the site of narrowing. This causes hair loss.
Traction alopecia is caused by localized trauma, often from tight hair styles. Braiding, cornrows, tight ponytails, and extensions are all common causes. Over time, these tight hairdos pull the hair and cause damage to the follicle. If detected early, the hair can regrow.

Hair thinning and hair loss are not specific to men only. In fact, 25% women have hereditary hair loss. For women, the psychological effects run deeper. Of these women, 79% said hair loss affects their happiness and gives them low self esteem. Hair loss can make women feel unempowered and give them distorted perceptions of themselves.
