6 Reasons for
Hair Loss

When the stress-regulating hormone—cortisol—is excessive in the body, it will mostly likely trigger a change in the 4 stages of the hair cycle. This, in turn, results in premature hair fall and thinning.


Hereditary-pattern baldness is another common cause of major hair loss. It is a natural condition caused by a specific combination of genetics, hormone levels, and the ageing process.


An imbalance in the level of DHT or dihydrotestosterone—a hormone derived from testosterone that shrinks your hair follicles and can interrupt hair growth cycles—can lead to early hair fall.

Hormonal Imbalances

A deficiency in Vitamin D, iron, zinc, or protein, can trigger hair loss in millennials. Those men and women who experience sudden weight loss, consume an unhealthy diet, have a low protein intake or niacin deficiency, may be susceptible to this condition.

Nutritional Deficiencies

'Alopecia areata' is an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks its own hair follicles. Other autoimmune disorders linked to alopecia include 'lupus'—a disease where the body’s immune system attacks itself—and dermatomyositis, a skin inflammation condition.

Autoimmune Disorders

A few months after giving birth, recovering from an illness, or having undergone an operation, you may notice increased hair fall. Trauma-triggered hair fall can take place during or after a stressful event in your life, such as the death of a loved one.
