Why is My Hair Falling Out?

Reasons for Hair Loss and How To Stop It

Losing strands of your hair is a part of every day life.  We often see hairs clogging up the bath plughole, scattered on our pillow in the mornings, and stuffed in our hoover.  Yes, hair loss is frequent, and yes, it is perfectly normal.

It is normal to lose around 100 strands a day, but if you are losing significantly more than that, or you notice they aren't growing back, that's when you are likely to be suffering from a more serious form of hair loss.

Research shows that at around 6 in 10 men, and 4 in 10 women will suffer from hair loss or reduced hair volume at some point in their lifetime, usually by the age of 40. But there are a number of different causes of baldness, so before trying to treat the problem, first you should know what type of hair loss you are suffering from.

Here, we go through some of the most common causes of baldness in men and women, and what potential solutions there are for each hair loss type...


The most common reason most people lose their hair is down to genetics.  It's not ideal, because there is no cure for androgenetic alopecia, but that's how cruel life can be. If you are suffering from male or female pattern baldness then it would be wise to act as early as possible, to give you the best chance of minimising the effects.

Possible solutions: There are prescription drugs that can help with baldness, but to avoid the nasty side-effects you can get from these, we'd recommend trying natural multi-vitamin supplements like Viviscal or HR23+.  These are proven to be very effective and safe to use.


Yes, that's right, stress can play a massive role in shedding. Stress can increase androgen levels, which in turn can causes severe shedding and patchy areas on the scalp. Stress may also trigger scalp problems, such as dandruff, disrupt eating habits and mess with the digestive system – all of which can have a negative impact on hair.

Possible solutions: Well, the obvious solution would be to try and stress less, but we all know that's easier said than done. You could try meditating - it is proven to help calm the mind and help you de-stress. A good diet and exercise will always help you stress less, which will result in healthier hair.

Vitamin deficiency

Many of us actually lack the vital vitamins and minerals that are needed for the healthy generation of hair cells. Lacking key vitamins and minerals such as B7, B12, Zinc, Iron, and Choline, can play a significant factor in the shedding of strands.

Possible solutions: Pack your diet with key vitamins and minerals - high protein foods and lots of water. Most of us can't get all these vitamins in our diet through food alone, so be sure to stock up on some multi-0vtaimin hair supplements - they're give you body all the right minerals that will benefit your hair.


Almost every one suffers from some form of hair loss as they age - it's just a natural process of life, and one that you should embrace, rather than fear. It is important to realise that our hair ages, and as we get older, hair naturally gets finer.

Possible solutions: Again, like with most solutions for hair loss, be sensible and logical in your approach to treating shedding caused by ageing.  Be sure to get lots of protein in your diet, be healthy, and avoid using chemically based products on your hair.   Also, consider taking hair supplements that will give you hair the vial vitamins it needs.

A lot of women suffer from thinning hair straight after giving birth.  Postpartum hair loss is a normal
change that is unrelated to breastfeeding. Most women will return to their usual hair growth cycle between 6 and 12 months after birth. Many new mothers notice hair loss – sometimes quite dramatic – around three months post-partum, or sometimes straight after pregnancy, or sometimes as late as after the breastfeeding stage.
