Causes of Hair Fall

1. A number of things can cause excessive hair loss. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery eg. A major surgery can also temporarily shut down the growth of hair and you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary. Pulling hair too hard can also cause hair loss.

2. Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment of the thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.

3. Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again. 

4. Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), blood-pressure lowering, oral-pills , medicines used for gout, medicines used in chemotherapy to treat cancer, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.

5. Certain infections can cause hair loss.  Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.

6. Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.
