Hair loss occurs when new hair doesn't replace the hair that has fallen out. Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss.
Alopecia Areata. Alopecia areata is a disease that happens when the immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair loss. Hair follicles are the structures in skin that form hair. While hair can be lost from any part of the body, alopecia areata usually affects the head and face.
Hormonal Imbalances. Androgens play a role in female and male pattern baldness. Excess androgens, or male sex hormones, and hormonal imbalances are the most common cause of hair loss in men. In female-pattern baldness, androgens can cause weak hair follicles, also leading to excess shedding. An underactive or overactive thyroid gland may cause hair loss also as each condition causes a hormonal imbalance.
Prescription Medications. Blood-thinning medications, oral contraceptives, drugs for depression, anti-inflammatories, and beta and calcium channel blockers can all lead to thinning hair or baldness. Too much vitamin A and vitamin A–based drugs called retinoids can cause hair loss as well.
Extreme Stress. Stress is linked to a type of hair loss called Telogen Effluvium, which can interrupt your hair's natural growth cycle.
