Causes of Hair Loss in Teens and Adults

Read below our sponsored ads for more information on growing your hair fast.

There are a number of causes of hair loss, both in men and women. It could be down to nutritional deficiency, hormone imbalance, stress, and diseases. However, generally, it is caused by adrogenetic alopecia – this is simply the medical term for hair loss/ baldness.Adrogenetic refers to the influence of androgens (male hormones), and genetic predisposition to balding can be the reason of such a hair loss. Genetics are not simple, and there is no way of predicting hair loss even if someone else in your family suffers with it. This is why planning in advance is very important.

Understanding Hair Loss

Every man and woman will produce androgenic hormones. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the most common produced either in male testicals or women’s ovaries. Exposure of hair follicles to DHT, in a susceptible person, in a period of time leads to male and female pattern to baldness or the so-called adrogenetic alopecia.

There is no exact age that this kind of hair loss may occur. The process may be slow, it may be fast, and it will usually start in late teens.

Other Causes of Hair Loss

Illness is also one of the most common causes of hair loss. This can include diabetes and thyroid disease, as well as those with liver or kidney problems. Medication will often cause hair loss, as will polycystic ovary syndrome in women.

Alopecia areata is a skin condition that can cause hair loss in various areas of the body. This is when the immune system attacks its own hair follices, and starts by showing small bald patches – eventually leading to complete baldness.

Trichotillomania is a disorder which can cause people to compulsively pull out their own hair, leading to hair loss.  Hair styling can also lead to hair loss, as can poor nutrition and a lack of protein in the diet.
