6 Reasons of Sudden Hair Loss: How to Treat It?

Hair loss is a normal phenomenon for every individual. But if you’re facing it all of a sudden, there must be several triggers causing the problem. Such factors can be either stress, incomplete diet, or undiagnosed medical conditions. The article will discuss 5 possible reasons for sudden hair loss.

Hair loss happens to everyone. Sometimes, it’s noticeable, the other times it’s not. But if you’re experiencing sudden hair loss, then the matter needs due attention.

Most people lose 50 to 100 hairs per day owing to the natural cycle. It’s not abnormal. However, the number can increase at the time of hair wash. But if you find excessive hair in the bathroom drain, pillow cover, or comb nails, don’t ignore it on face. Consult your doctor or a dermatologist about the problem. They will treat the issue with due care, diagnosing hidden medical conditions if any. Here go a couple of reasons for your hair loss:

1. Telogen effluvium: if you have been through stressful conditions, this type of hair loss can happen for 3 to 6 months at a stretch. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the stressing elements can be surgery, pregnancy, divorce, job loss, high fever, or recovery from illness over the period.
2. Alopecia areata: It comes up as round bald patches all of a sudden. That said, the condition can occur when the immunity system of the body invades hair follicles by mistake(without any definite reason). The hair might grow back naturally or after proper treatment.
3. Thyroid
4. Unclear bowel
5. Intake of blood thinners or chemotherapy
6. Nutritional disbalance: Iron deficiency or vitamin A overdose
