Nutritional deficiency may impact both hair structure and hair growth, if you’re noticing hair thinning it could be possible that essential nutrients such as proteins, iron, copper or think may be missing from your diet.
Experiencing lots of stress can lead to hair loss. A lot of people experience hair thinning after a physical or emotional shock that could last for several months, although is usually temporary.
Medical conditions and hormonal changes
A variety of conditions can cause permanent or temporary hair loss, including alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder that causes patchy hair loss), and scalp infections. Also, hormonal changes due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and thyroid problems could also lead to hair loss.
