The causes of hair loss may be related to heredity, aging, and hormonal imbalance. If heredity is a reason for the baldness, it can be from the motherís side or the fatherís side. There is a wrong notion that baldness is due to heredity from the motherís side. This is not true. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is one of the major cause of hair loss, hair thinning, and baldness. DHT is a byproduct of testosterone, which is responsible for secondary sexual characteristics in human being. DHT is found in larger levels during puberty.

Even after puberty if this hormone is present in excess levels then it will cause hair loss and baldness. Hence most of the medicines that are available for treating hair loss are focusing on neutralizing this DHT present in the scalp. DHT blocks the essential nutrients from reaching the hair follicles and starving them of these nurtients which may result in hair thinning and subsequent hair loss.Oral drugs such as Propecia and Rogaine are available for treating hair loss. Propecia has some harmful side effects like defective birth and hence it is not recommended for women. At present this medication is recommended for men only.

The common problem is chemical breakage causing hair loss in cosmetics,Women are the most vulnerable when it comes to hair loss through cosmetics. Hair loss through cosmetics is usually the result of improper use of treatment chemicals,Hair is delicate and needs good care, consistent and natural hair damage comes the way we use our hair,after hair bath try not to use comb directly, even if you use conditioning and anti tangle potions, you should firstly run your fingers through your hair to ensure that your hair is not subjected to jerks and pulls that may result if you directly use the comb,Using hot hair clamps will damage your hair, your hair will end up with split ends and a dull look, try to maintain hair style, that will require least of products that are most likely to damage hair.

Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, high blood pressure or heart problems, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.

The primary reason (not specific cause) for hair loss is definitely heredity. Sure, hair loss can result from a variety of issues related to your health and environment as well, but those issues only account for a very small percentage of cases. Using chemical based products can and often does damage hair, but it in no way causes hair loss.

Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or deficient, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, called androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.

Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss.

Many women notice hair loss about 3 months after they've had a baby. This loss is also related to hormones. During pregnancy, high levels of certain hormones cause the body to keep hair that would normally fall out. When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again.

Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, high blood pressure or heart problems, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.

Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines.

Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.

The helmet will only make your hair fall out, if it is so strong that cuts off circulation to the scalp. Not sure if it could cause pain in the neck, but, perhaps, if it is heavy and is carried by a prolonged period.

There are products on the market that promise to magically improve hair in an instant, but actually contain dangerous chemicals that damage hair. Not only are significantly useless and dangerous

There are many artificial treatments that can be undertaken but they are not fool proof and cannot be banked upon. Therefore, other options like drugs medications can be taken such as propecia. You can avail propecia online at suitable prices.
