Why is My Hair Falling Out?

Are you baffled by the question, why is my hair falling out? Have you tried all the quick fixes, shampoo’s conditioner’s, vitamins, and nothing seems to help stop the hair loss? The key to stop your hair from falling out for good is to figure out why this is happening in the first place and fix it. Keep reading and I will show you how this can help you.

Hello, my name is Alane. I am a holistic nutritionist with over 30 years of experience. I dedicate myself to helping people improve their health, wellness, hormones, and hair so they can feel and look more confident.

6 reasons for hair loss include:

  1.  Slow thyroid. Yes, you may be saying that you have had your thyroid checked multiple times and I hear that daily. However, did you know that “functional” levels of thyroid hormone are different from “medical” levels? Plus most providers only test TSH. Free T3, Free T4, and thyroid antibodies are also important for healthy hair.
  2. Hormone  Imbalance: You can accurately test hormone levels in saliva, to determine the levels in your tissues.  Often with female pattern hair loss, I see high androgens in the saliva.
  3. Cortisol overload: Life happens and stress levels go up and up. When this happens your stress hormone, called cortisol can go up and cause stress in your body, including your hair. Hair loss can occur as a side effect of high levels of cortisol.
  4. Vitamin Deficiency – Even the best diets can still have vitamin deficiency. The food we eat does not have the same vitamins and mineral levels as it did many years ago. Life is busy, so many people struggle to eat healthy. This can result in not getting all the necessary nutrients.
  5. Bloodwork is too Basic. In functional nutrition, it’s important to do more than just a basic CBC and Comprehensive Metabolic bloodwork. Comprehensive bloodwork is essential for a thorough understanding of a patient’s health. This ensures that your bloodwork does not miss anything related to your overall health and your hair.
  6. Gluten Intolerance – You may not have Celiac, but there are many people walking around with non-celiac gluten intolerance. This will affect nutrient absorption, autoimmunity (immune system attacks against your hair), and more.

Why Does My Hair Fall Out in the Shower?

Hair loss in the shower can occur due to various factors. These factors include genetics, using harsh shampoo, washing hair excessively, using heat styling tools, or making certain lifestyle choices. One common cause is the natural hair growth cycle, includes a shedding of the telogen effluvium phase.

During this telogen phase, hair follicles enter a resting state and eventually shed, leading to temporary hair loss. This is okay as long as your hair grows back right away. When is does not, that is a problem.

Excessive tension or pulling on the hair during shampooing or combing can contribute to hair breakage and fall out. This is particularly common cause of hair loss in women with long or fragile hair.

Losing hair in the shower can be frightening and upsetting. This is especially true for women who view their hair as a significant aspect of their beauty and femininity. The sight of clumps of hair gathering in the drain can evoke feelings of worry, frustration, and even anxiety. Getting to the root cause of the hair loss can put your mind and fears to ease that you are on the right path to healthy hair growth.

How to Stop Hair From Falling Out?

Addressing hair loss and stopping hair from falling out requires a multifaceted approach that goes beyond surface-level treatments. To effectively address hair loss, it is important to understand the root causes.

Relying solely on products and remedies marketed as solutions is not enough. Understanding the underlying reasons for hair loss is crucial. This will help in finding the most effective treatment.

Testing for metabolism, hormones, and vitamins is important for finding out why hair loss is happening. This helps to create personalized treatments for the best results. To stop hair loss, you need to fix the root causes. Just taking pills, using special shampoos, or changing your diet won’t solve the problem for good.

I understand that your hair loss is bothering you badly. It effects you emotionally and physically. To stop hair loss and regain confidence, focus on thorough testing and specific personalized protocols.

It’s important to remember that asking for help and support is not a sign of weakness. Instead, it’s a proactive step towards taking control of your health and achieving long-lasting results.

Here are the tests I suggest when there is hair falling out.
