Physical & Emotional Stress
There are two different types of stress that cause temporary hair loss, physical and emotional stress. Physical stress include traumas such has car accidents, surgery or even rough colds. Emotional stress includes events such as experiencing the death of a loved one, having a high anxiety job or even raising children. Everyday events can be causing you to lose your hair. Hair loss becomes noticeable 3 to 6 months after the stressful event.
Hormonal Changes and Medical Conditions
Hormonal changes such as post pregrancy and menopause can cause temporary hair loss as well. Medical conditions such as scalp infections, alopecia, and certain skin disorders can also cause temporary to permanent loss of hair as well.
Certain medications can cause hair loss as a side effect of using the drug. Drugs used for heart problems, cancer, and birth control have a high likelihood of causing hair loss. We recommend you speak to your doctor to see if the medication you are taking can cause hair loss.
