Hair loss in women can have many causes. Hair transplants aren’t always the answer. Once the cause of hair loss can be determined, the solution may be an easy fix.

Many women often wonder why their hair is falling out. They see hair in the sink, the shower, or in their hairbrush. It can be troubling, but if you are aware of 6 of the main causes that lead to hair loss in women, you can seek the proper treatment.

Vitamin B12 Deficiency

A lack of vitamin B12 will leave you feeling tired and run down. It also affects the health of our red blood cells, which impact your hair.

Dramatic weight loss

Shedding unwanted weight is a great achievement – but done drastically and quickly, it can cause an excess amount of temporary hair loss.

Hormonal imbalance

A hormonal imbalance can cause acne, weight gain and a number of other health and beauty issues including hair loss. Your doctor can order blood work to check your hormone levels and possibly pinpoint the cause of your hair loss.


Stress can be the cause of many bad things going on within our bodies, including hair loss. It can also trigger dandruff, which correlates with hair loss.


Having an iron deficiency is a condition know as anemia. Since iron is essential for producing hair cell protein, having a lack of can lead to hair loss.

Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism
