Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the statement you gave on the above section, I completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information there are a few factors that could cause hair loss such as:

  • abnormal level of androgen hormones
  • injury to the scalp
  • infection of the scalp
  • medical condition called alopecia
  • genetics.
  • stress can cause hair loss
  • chemotherapy
  • autoimmune disease
  • shampooing too often, bleaching and dying your hair makes your hair thinner and weaker
  • illness such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, iron deficiency anemia
  • low protein diet can lead temporary hair loss

Therefore, you will need to see a doctor so that you can get assessed properly and proper treatment can be given to you.

The list of conditions we mentioned above is just our general impression why an individual might experience hair loss.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us at ( DoctorOnCall ) for an online private consultation with our doctors. We value your privacy. Thank you.

Get that perfect skin with the right skin care.
