There are many types of hair loss with many different causes. So before you resort to radical and expensive treatments, it’s important to know whether your hair loss could have a simpler solution. There are three common causes for hair loss
– Genetic Causes
– Lifestyle Causes
– Skin Conditions
Today, in this post we will be look at lifestyle causes of hair loss and how to fix them :
- You’re not Eating Right – Like anything else, your hair needs nutrients to grow and stay healthy, Sudden weight loss, low iron levels, or a poor diet can all lead to hair shedding, albeit on a temporary basis.
How to Fix it – Eat a healthy, well balanced diet with plenty of protein, iron, zinc and biotin. Legumes like kidney beans and lentils are a great place to start.
2. You’re too Stressed – Despite what most people think, stress is a very rare cause of hair loss. Only one type of hair loss (telogen effluvium) is caused by intense physical or emotional stress. This type of car loss causes a sudden widespread thinning, rather than a receding hairline.

How to Fix it – Removing the cause of your stress is best, but when this isn’t possible (i.e. from a job you can’t quit) then consider trying Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and taking regular exercise to manage the stress. Hair growth should return to normal within 6 months.
3. Your Hair is too Tight – Fashion and healthy hair often sit together about as well as oil and water, tight braids, man buns, cornrows and harsh treatments can all damage your scalp significantly. And if the roots are damaged, that means hair loss.
How to Fix it – Be sensible, and don’t follow hair damaging trends that pull your hair too tight. Take care of your scalp by using moisturising shampoos and conditioners, and avoid dying your hair too often without a break.
