If you have ever noticed extra hair in the sink when you comb it or hair on the pillow, you have experienced shedding. But what happens when it is in large clumps? Hair loss is common and can happen to anyone. From babies to teenagers, the hair changes a few times also, and there could be shedding away of hair during those years. But when you are an adult and you notice hair loss, you should act right away.

There could be many reasons why your hair is falling out and they include:

 

  • using old products that have expired
  • allergic reaction to chemicals like lye or formaldehyde
  • lupus
  • chemo therapy
  • blood pressure medication
  • child birth
  • stress/anxiety
  • anorexia or bulimia
  • trichotillomania
