Hair loss, what are the causes?
Hair says a lot about your health, and excessive hair loss can indicate a disease. Approximately 80 to 140 hairs are lost every day and it is quite normal. When one hair falls, another grows back, because the hair follicle is alive. However, if the loss is greater, you have to know that it is causing hair loss.
Excessive hair loss is usually caused by hormonal disorders. The loss of hormones affects men between 30 and 50 years of age, postmenopausal women, the birth of a child or interruption of contraceptive drugs. The equation of hormonal hair loss is the rapid reduction in the hair follicle, in combination with the shortening of the hair growth phase. The influence of androgens and hormones that include testosterone, is when the balance and the production of testosterone is altered and transformed into the active molecule (DHT) and relentlessly in the destruction of the hair follicles. In women the overproduction of androgens is due to menstruation, adrenal glands or the termination of their activity during menopause
Thyroid diseases that affect the loss of our hair
Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism affect the appearance of hair. With hypothyroidism, the hair is very thin, dry and stiff, something that can make hair fall very quickly. When hyperthyroidism appears, alopecia can be areata or generalized. When it is developed, the thyroid is stimulated for the preparation of specific immunoglobulins, which significantly accelerates the metabolic functions, and therefore the aging of the hair. During treatment, do not use furs or crochet on hair. You can comb it using a bristle brush, because it is softer than plastic or metal.
Vitamin deficiency causes hair loss
Malnutrition, particularly the lack of protein, amino acids, iron and zinc intake can cause hair loss throughout the head. This is called, diffuse alopecia. Usually a person who makes a diet of weight loss, is limited to the daily intake of calories with their corresponding nutrient values. It is advisable to talk with your dietitian or endocrinologist and refer him, to avoid the intake of these nutrients. It is very dangerous for the hair, low protein diets that come from chicken and veal.
Do not do, without consulting your doctor, any miraculous diet of weight loss. If you want to lose some weight without endangering the health of your hair, reduce the consumption of sweets, eat a lot of vegetables, fruits and vegetables, do aerobic gymnastics, walk, etc. In early spring you can go with a multivitamin to increase the missing vitamins and minerals, and of course drink lots of water.

Talio, arsénico, mercurio, bismuto, ácido bórico (según Wikipedia: El ácido bórico o ácido trioxobórico (III) es un compuesto químico, ligeramente ácido. Es usado como antiséptico, insecticida, retardante de la llama y precursor de otros compuestos químicos. Es usado también como agente tampón para regulación del pH). Los síntomas no pasan de momento, aunque normalmente se manifiesta con malestar general.

Some of these chemicals or active ingredients are at home and are often used in the garden or for DIY, so keep them indoors and inaccessible to children. If you suspect poisoning, you should go to the hospital immediately.
Stress contributes to hair loss
Stress situations intensify the secretion of prolactin, which causes excessive hair loss.
Learning to relax, walk, do aerobic gymnastics or sign up for Yoga, Taichi or Pilates classes will help avoid stress situations. If stress situations continue daily, seek professional help.
