1 Deficient Diet
Some people who go on low protein diets, or have severely abnormal eating habits, may develop protein malnutrition. To help save protein the body shifts growing hair into the resting phase.

This condition can be reversed and prevented by eating the proper amount of protein. Its very important when dieting to maintain an adequate protein intake.
Human aging is the biological process that is unavoidable but controllable with healthy diet with complex carbohydrates, green foods, garlic, onion, water and juices that will help to decrease the aging process in some degree. It also helps to reduce the amount of DHT produced in our body, result in postponing hair loss to our scalp.
Some prescription drugs may cause temporary hair shedding in a small percentage of people. Examples of such drugs include some of the medicines used for the following: gout, arthritis, depression, heart problems, high blood pressure, or blood thinner. High doses of vitamin A may also cause hair shedding.
4 Genetic Hair Loss
Hair loss sometimes is due to heredity. It is passed down from generation to generation. Genetic hair loss appears predominately in men, but may also appear in a few select women. When it comes to genetic cause, hair loss is impossible to avoid and seems too difficult to cure.
Stress is one of major reasons for hair loss. If a person fails to deal with his/her stress, the pressure then would result in some disease, hair loss included. The loss of hair would be much easier to cure if it was just resulted from great stress. Because one can control it with his/her mind.
