What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss, medically known as alopecia, can be attributed to various internal and external factors. Understanding the root cause of your hair loss is crucial in determining the most effective treatment plan.

Here are some common causes:

Reason #1


Having a family history of baldness or thinning hair can significantly influence your own risk of experiencing similar hair loss patterns. Known as androgenetic alopecia, this genetic predisposition can play a significant role in determining the health and density of your hair over time. Understanding your family's hair loss history can help you anticipate and take proactive steps to address any potential concerns, whether through lifestyle adjustments or seeking professional advice for preventive measures or treatments.

Reason #2

Hormonal Changes

Pregnancy, menopause, and thyroid disorders are among the various factors that can contribute to hair loss. During pregnancy, hormonal changes can cause temporary hair shedding, while menopause often leads to a decrease in estrogen levels, which may trigger hair thinning or loss. Thyroid disorders, such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, can disrupt the balance of hormones essential for hair growth, resulting in noticeable changes in hair density and texture.

Reason #3

Medical Conditions

Alopecia areata, scalp infections, and autoimmune diseases are common causes of hair loss that can significantly impact individuals' hair health. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition characterized by the immune system mistakenly attacking hair follicles, leading to sudden hair loss in small, round patches. Scalp infections, such as fungal infections or bacterial folliculitis, can also contribute to hair loss by damaging hair follicles or disrupting the normal hair growth cycle. Autoimmune diseases, including lupus or psoriasis, can trigger inflammation that affects the scalp and hair follicles, resulting in hair thinning or loss.

Reason #4


Emotional or physical stress can trigger a condition known as telogen effluvium, leading to significant hair shedding and thinning. Telogen effluvium occurs when a stressful event, such as a major life event, illness, surgery, or significant emotional distress, disrupts the normal hair growth cycle. This disruption causes a large number of hair follicles to enter the telogen (resting) phase prematurely, resulting in excessive shedding several months later.

Reason #5

Nutritional Deficiencies

Overuse of heat styling tools, tight hairstyles, and chemical treatments can all contribute to hair damage and loss. Heat styling tools such as flat irons, curling wands, and blow dryers can cause excessive drying and weakening of the hair shaft, leading to breakage and eventual thinning. Tight hairstyles like ponytails, braids, or buns can exert tension on the hair follicles, causing traction alopecia, a form of hair loss resulting from constant pulling. Additionally, chemical treatments like hair dyeing, bleaching, and perming can weaken the hair structure, making it more prone to breakage and loss.

Reason #6


Age-related thinning and shedding are natural occurrences as we get older. As we age, various factors such as hormonal changes, reduced hair follicle activity, and decreased blood circulation to the scalp can contribute to hair thinning and loss. Additionally, the hair growth cycle may slow down, resulting in shorter hair growth phases and longer resting phases. This can lead to fewer hairs growing and more hairs shedding at any given time.

Hi - I want to leave this review because this facility has one of the most informative, intelligent, kind, and helpful staff by name of Amanda. Amanda is a gem. She spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of the treatments that I was seeking, but also was so HONEST and CONSIDERATE that stated that due to my medical condition, I should not yet seek the desired treatment they office at their facility. Amanda was not only kind, concern, and honest and spoke with much integrity about how I am vulnerable to receive the treatment, but also she offered many many other alternatives that are available and could be helpful. She honestly took such a long time to explain several options, which some did not even was something they offered, but due to my medical condition could be simple and very useful. I may not be able to use their services now and hopefully later, but I am sure going to refer this facility to anyone who is looking to get stem cell treatment.

My mother got a stem cell injection in her hip a few months before her 76th birthday instead of getting another hip replacement. She is so happy with the results and has been living pain free for the past 6+ months. She keeps telling everyone she knows about Dr. Fishman and Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles and thinks the drive from Riverside County to Encino is worth every penny!
