Why is My Hair Falling Out? Potential Causes of Hair Shedding, and What to Do About It

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If you’re seeing clumps of hair in your comb or finding strands, well, everywhere, you're not alone. While  , with about half of all women experiencing it in their lifetime, it does not make looking at a drain full of hair any easier. Men also deal with hair loss, with 80% of them experiencing it. However, some degree of hair shedding is perfectly normal. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most people lose 50 to 100 strands of hair daily. When the number of strands lost starts climbing into the 300 range, it's considered excessive hair shedding. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to reverse hair loss and strengthen your strands.

Hair Falling OutWhy is my hair falling out?

Hair loss can be distressing and also a sign of distress. The first step in addressing the issue is determining why you're losing more hair than usual. Here are some of the most common reasons for hair shedding:

Hormonal changes

When hormones fluctuate during certain periods of your life, your hair loss may accelerate. These hormonal roller coasters occur during pregnancy, childbirth, menopause or thyroid problems. Going on and off birth control pills can also trigger changes in your hormones and hair.


If you notice hair clumps and shedding a month or two after a stressful event, that event is most likely the reason for the change in your hair. Stressful events such as divorce, losing a job or having surgery can do the trick. Losing a significant amount of weight can also contribute to stress-related hair loss.


A healthy diet is good for all body parts, including your hair. Foods that contribute to healthy hair include those high in protein, iron and Omega-3 fatty acids. Conversely, not having enough of these foods and nutrients can have the opposite effect on a healthy head of hair.

Hair care issues

Heat, styling tools and hairstyles such as tight ponytails or braids can make your hair more prone to breakage. The rougher you are on your hair, the rougher it will be for you.


You probably won't be surprised to learn that your hair changes as you age. Not only does it change color, for most, to gray, but the texture also changes. It gets thinner, grows more slowly and falls out more quickly.

How to stop hair shedding

Fortunately, there are many things you can do to reverse or slow down hair loss. Most people can regain their previous thick mains with the following lifestyle tips and treatment recommendations.

Reduce stress

Stress can wreak havoc on your health in a variety of ways, including your scalp. Fortunately, hair loss caused by stress grows back easily – when you reduce stress. Mediation, yoga, deep breathing, exercise and getting enough sleep are all ways to combat stress.

Eat a healthy diet

Your hair needs adequate nutrients to grow, like any other body part. Getting sufficient protein is especially important for hair since hair follicles are made mostly of protein. Healthy fats like olive oil and avocado are also beneficial for hair growth and strength, as are Vitamin C-packed fruits and vegetables like oranges, peppers and tomatoes.

Vitamins, minerals and supplements

Vitamin deficiency is associated with hair loss, so taking a multivitamin is a good start to preventing it. Even better, take a multivitamin specifically designed to combat hair thinning. Other vitamins that may improve hair growth include biotin, zinc, vitamin A and vitamin B12. However, you should always consult a medical professional before adding vitamins and supplements to your wellness routine.

Be gentle and go natural

Letting your hair be as natural as possible is the healthiest way to encourage growth and stop hair loss. But not everyone is happy with the results of free-flowing air-dried hair. So, if you can't go au natural, at least take a break from hair dryers, styling tools, perms and bleaching for a little while. When you do use heat styling tools, switch to the lowest setting. And after coloring your hair, be sure to use a moisturizing conditioning treatment.

Change up your style

Tight hairstyles like ponytails and buns that pull on your scalp can lead to hair breakage, shedding and even permanent hair loss, especially when you wear them frequently. Changing your hairstyle can reduce the damage and give your scalp a chance to recover. Loose braids or a low loose ponytail or bun is better for your hair than tight styles that tug at your scalp.

Hair and scalp treatments

Treat yourself to a hair mask or deep moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair is healthy and less prone to split ends and breakage. Similarly, a scalp treatment can energize your follicles and promote hair growth. Apply these treatments regularly for optimal results. Follow these easy steps to mitigate hair loss and promote healthy, strong hair.     [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title="Featured Products" border_width="2"][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" gap="35"][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="171100" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1702047564672{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="171099" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1702047589224{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="171098" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" css=".vc_custom_1702047613610{padding-right: 7% !important;padding-left: 7% !important;}" link=""][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
