What are the most common causes of hair loss in men and women?

In order to get started, you must first familiarise yourself with the most common hair loss causes for people all around the world. Generally, a blading, thinning, or receding head of hair can stem from styling products, hormone imbalance, stressful situations, or heredity and genetics.[1]

  • Styling products. Perhaps you’ve been applying styling products to spruce up your overall appearance. These may provide your hair with a voluminous look, but repeated use can pull out hair follicles over time. 
  • Hormone imbalance. If you have an underlying health condition or illnesses that cause hair loss, your body could be experiencing a hormone imbalance that slows down or stops cell growth. It’s important to note that medication could also cause similar side effects. 
  • Stressful events. It’s not uncommon for people to experience hair loss after going through stressful situations. Your body reacts by sending signals to your hair follicles, causing them to close and enter into a resting phase. 
  • Heredity and genetics. Seen as the most common reason for major hair loss, male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) from heredity and genetics makes your hair follicles shrink at a fast rate. 

With this information, you can now narrow down the reasons for hair loss, potentially pinpoint data applicable to your particular case, and then work on maintenance or prevention. 

We all want a simpler and more reliable process when getting answers. Don’t fret; we at Mosh will give you the support you need through our AHPRA-registered doctors. With our hands-on service, you don’t have to study hair loss causes on your own or self-diagnose. Just answer the short virtual questionnaire on our telehealth platform and have us provide you with the next steps based on your unique medical history. 

Reach out to us today and have peace of mind knowing that Australian doctors will be looking into your situation. 

Can vitamin deficiency be a cause of hair loss?

Having a well-balanced diet brings about a number of benefits, one of which is the healthy production of cells around the body. With this, among the numerous of hair loss causes is vitamin deficiency or a lack of essential nutrients.[2]

If your current diet doesn’t provide you with the necessary nutrients and minerals, then you should consider making a lifestyle change by rounding out your meals. However, if your busy lifestyle prevents you from making such changes, you can also look into supplements you can take throughout the day or right after meal time.

At Mosh, you can try out our one-time-purchase Hair Starter Kit if you suspect that you have any deficiencies.
