It is likely due to a combination of factors, such as genetics, diet, stress levels and hair care habits. Consulting a doctor or trichologist may help you identify the exact cause and determine how to best promote healthy hair growth.
Genetics is a major factor in hair growth and loss. Genetically determined hormones, such as testosterone, can lead to hair thinning or baldness. Additionally, genetic predispositions to certain diseases, such as thyroid conditions or autoimmune disorders like alopecia areata can cause thinning and shedding of the scalps hairs. If you have a family history of these types of conditions it may be worth consulting your doctor for further advice on how to best take care of yourself and your hair health.
Diet plays an important role in healthy hair growth too; if we do not provide our bodies with enough vitamins and minerals from our diet then this could impact the health of our tresses. Eating plenty of lean proteins (such as fish & poultry), fresh fruits & vegetables and complex carbohydrates (like whole grains) will help ensure that your body has access to all the essential nutrients needed for strong, healthy locks. Additionally, making sure you stay hydrated by drinking water throughout each day is also beneficial for both skin & scalp health – helping keep them free from irritation which could potentially impede the normal process of growing new strands!
Lastly but most certainly not least: stress levels can wreak havoc with our follicles too! When we experience high amounts of stress over extended periods this causes hormone imbalances within the body which impacts its ability to grow new strands effectively leading either incomplete development or even complete cessation depending upon individual circumstances. To combat this problem it helps greatly if we strive towards finding balance in life: taking time out for ourselves every now-and-then through regular relaxation techniques like yoga/meditation or other forms that feel comfortable/enjoyable; exercising regularly; getting adequate sleep etc., all these things contribute positively towards managing stress levels so try incorporate them into daily routines when possible!
