Just like all the other living things, hair requires proper attention for their growth, else they die. With this I mean the individual loss hair gradually and eventually baldness can attack. This is indeed pathetic. Many of us are not aware of the fact that we lose around 600 to 900 hair strands on a daily basis, and this is pretty normal. The reason behind this hair loss is the growth of newer strands while replacing the old ones. However, if you notice that you are losing hair abnormally or more than usual, then you must be considering it. At such a critical point, you must see a doctor and inquire about the cause of the hair loss.

Hormones are the growth triggering factor in the human body, if they stop performing their function properly, you can suffer greatly. Similarly, if the hair growth hormone is improperly working then that is the real culprit. This problem is something that cannot be known until and unless you visit the doctor or go for a medical test. Many times the issue of the hormonal disorder is hereditary as well. If it is in your genes, then there is a very little chance that you can overcome the effects. However, baldness is very uncommon in women, but men seem to be the victim mostly.
If we particularly talk about women, after the pregnancy the complaint about the hair loss is not very unusual. This is because of the medications which disturb the hormone functions, but it gets fixed over the time.
