Whether you are a man or a woman, transient shredding of hair always end up distressing you. You don’t look your age. Even if you are in your mid thirties, you are not supposed to lose a lot of hair.

Hair thinning

The usual reason for hair thinning in women is that the growth phase of the hair is extended. This means that the rate of losing hair increases as compared to growth of new hair. This means that your scalp is growing fewer hairs as compared to losing them. This particular problem is known as Telogen Effluvium.

Other reasons which exist in women include pregnancy. During the time you are pregnant, there is another life that is consuming certain nutrients which your body needs as well.

Stopping on hormonal pills will lead to hair fall as well. Moreover, crash dieting, trauma, surgery, anaemia or even a thyroid disease; all these lead to drastic hair fall.

Once you start losing your hair due to any of these reasons, it means that your body has lost a lot of important nutrients, including the likes of zinc, copper and B16 vitamins.
