Losing your hair can be a surprise, expected, or occur early, but it’s rarely desired and can be a blow to your self-image, especially for women. People normally lose 50 to 100 hairs a day without causing noticeably thinning hair, but causes of excessive hair loss can be genetics, medications, stress, aging, or medical conditions such as scalp infections or thyroid issues, the latter of which are common origins of hair loss in women.
Depending on the cause, hair loss can be sudden or gradual, effecting either just the scalp or the entire body; fortunately, sometimes the effects can be temporary rather than a pattern of permanent hair loss. Emotional shock and stress can actually cause hair to loosen and get tugged out through combing.
