Posted By:

Are you petrified of brushing your tresses because of all the hair that falls out in clumps with each stroke?

Do you fear that, soon enough, you may be losing all your hair and does that thought induce a lot of anxiety in you?

Well, it is quite understandable to feel that way about hair loss, as having a healthy, radiant mane can truly boost a person's appearance instantly, regardless of the gender!

Having limp, thinning hair can make you look much older than you actually are and also give you a rather unhealthy look!

When you are experiencing constant hair fall, it may be very difficult for you to even consider getting a new hairdo or a stylish hair makeover!

Now, we already know that hair fall may be caused by poor diet, negative effects of pollution, lack of a proper hair care regimen, illness, etc.

However, there are a few surprising reasons that may lead to extreme hair loss, which many of us may not be aware of.

Have a look at those reasons, here!


1. Traumatic Events

If a person has experienced a traumatic event like an accident, death of a loved one, etc, in the recent past, it may result in depression, causing hair fall.


2. Vitamin A Supplement

Regular use of vitamin A supplements are known to weaken the hair roots, causing hair fall, is what a research opines.


3. Lack Of Protein

Although all the essential nutrients are required for healthy hair, protein is the most important one and lack of proteins in your diet can lead to further hair loss.


4. Heredity

Sometimes, hair loss can be purely due to your genetics; if your parents or grandparents suffer from male/female pattern baldness, chances are you can experience it too!


5. Sudden Weight Loss

Extreme dieting and sudden loss of a high amount of weight, in just a few days, can also weaken the hair follicles, leading to hair loss.


6. Prolonged Fever

If you have suffered from a bout of viral flu or fever, which has prolonged for more than 15 days, it can also be one of the causes for hair fall.


7. Birth Control Pills

Many a times, women who are on birth control pills tend to experience a lot of hair fall due to the hormonal imbalance created in their body from the effects of the pills.
