Hair loss can be caused by many different things ranging from serious illnesses and diseases to stress, lack of sleep and hormonal imbalances. Most people generally think the worst when first noticing a loss of hair, forgetting that there are a myriad of reasons that could be the culprit.
Today we’re looking at three lesser talked about causes of hair loss that is temporary and can usually be corrected with lifestyle or diet changes.
1. Too Much Estrogen – An abundance of estrogen in your body can cause all sorts of issues ranging from weight gain to depression, fatigue and even hair loss. This generally happens during perimenopause and can also be brought on by excessive weight gain.
2. High Testosterone – High testosterone can also be a surprising cause of hair loss in women. Hormonal imbalances can wreak havoc on the body, and hair loss, along with accelerated hair growth on the face, can be a symptom of a testosterone imbalance.
3. A Low Thyroid (or Hypothyroidism) – The thyroid is a gland that creates the thyroid hormone, which control the body’s energy usage. This can cause of hair loss for women in some cases, along with depression, brittle nails, dry skin, and a general feeling of tiredness.
