Hair loss possible causes

I know stress can cause hair loss but in the last 6 months that I have been dieting I have lost a lot of hair. It's not noticable to look at me but my brush is full of it. I think lack of protien can contribute to it but what are other factors. And by the way I typically eat around 5oz of protien daily.

It can be because you are not eating enough (happens to anorexics). It can also happen if you are drinking too much diet soda - happened to a sorority sister of mine in college. She was living off of diet soda b/c it had no calories, and started losing her hair!

Also, if your hair is longer than it used to be, you may just be noticing more hair, b/c each strand is longer. When you get your hair cut, particularly if you go to one person all the time and they are a professional, you can ask if your rate of hair loss is something to be concerned about. I lose a lot of hair, but always have, and my hairdresser says it's normal.

Low iron and a shift in hormones can also cause hair loss. If your main source of iron was red meat, you may need a supplement.

OP here
Thanks for the comments. I am a hair dresser but haven't had my hair cut in over a year. I had forgotten that it would appear to be more because of the length. It is about an inch from my waist. I'm trying to grow it until I reach my goal. It will take another couple of years but then I want to have it cut for locks of love.
I have not been noticing more on my clothing or falling into food or anything like the last time I was losing it. But just in my brush. So I think it must be due to the length.
Thanks guys.

it also could be due to bladder/kidney issues. My hubbie has some hair loss problems & while doing research for him I stumbled onto this information. You might take a notice at what color your urine is: bright yellow is a good indication of being dehydrated.....clear is a good sign.
you might try a kidney/bladder cleanse. there are many kinds out there. or just adding lemon wedges to your water.

if you would like to try a natural hair regrowth recipie:
tea tree oil -2 droppers full
jojoba oil- 2 droppers full
eucalyptus essential oil- 5 drops
cayenne pepper- open 2 capsules
mix & apply to hair like once a day.
if reddness or irritation starts then cut back to every other day or every 2-3 days.
whatever feels right to your body.
I hope this helps!

I'd not seen that recipe before. However it makes a certain amount of sense.

Tea tree oil and jojoba oil are both great natural dandruff remedies and the cayenne pepper will irritate the skin slightly and increase blood flow to the scalp. It may not help, but I bet it couldn't hurt much either. What really struck me about this was I bet it might help with poor circulation in hands and feet during the winter. The jojoba and tea tree oil would help moisturize and the cayenne would draw (warming) blood to the surface. I think I may just have to try this! I may post again and let any interested parties know how it works (my hands and feet are total ice all winter long). Thanks for posting that!

5g of protein a day? are you kidding me? is all you are eating all day a slice of bread? That is really not enough food or protein to support your amount of hair. Hair is made of protein and amino acids. You have to consume more fish oils, proteins, and fats. You can have a diet full of healthy fats and still eat well and diet. Take a supplment of fish oils or some flaz seed oil if you really dont want to eat it. Drink a protein shake every day or every couple of days. Should get better.

Thanks everyone for the comments. I appreciate it. And yes it is usually 5 0z of protien. Sometimes more. Calorie wise it has been really low though. I wonder if that has something to do with it. I am not sure it is as bad as it was. Since I don't find it on my clothes.

4:02 mentioned bladder/kidney issues. I have a lot of trouble with water retention and drink a lot of lemon water besides 200 mg of diuretics a day. My body is not in the best shape after all these years of being over weight.
Again thanks for the help everyone.

Hair loss treatments

I tried Avodart before and it works fine. Just after 2 months I already saw some good results. A good alternate for those expensive treatments out there...
