What are the reasons for hair loss?

Losing your hair can be devastating for both men and women. It can also be a condition that not only affects your scalp but your entire body. Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp. This is hereditary and comes with age. Hair loss can also come on suddenly or gradually.


There are several reasons why a person may experience hair loss, including:

  1. Genetics (Androgenetic Alopecia)

  2. Hormonal changes (such as pregnancy, menopause, and thyroid issues)

  3. Medical conditions (such as autoimmune diseases, iron deficiency anemia, and fungal infections)

  4. Medications (such as chemotherapy, blood thinners, and antidepressants)

  5. Stress and physical trauma (such as surgery or severe illness)

  6. Poor nutrition and unhealthy lifestyle habits

  7. Age and hormonal changes related to aging

  8. Certain hairstyles that can cause traction alopecia

  9. Alopecia areata (an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss in patches)

  10. Scarring alopecia (caused by skin damage that leads to permanent hair loss).

At Meira we have a number of treatments that are highly effective in helping your body actually produce new hair growth.


Here are some options to treat hair loss:

  1. Medications (such as Minoxidil and Finasteride)

  2. Hormonal therapy (for hormonal imbalances causing hair loss)

  3. Scalp microneedling or PRP therapy

  4. Hair transplant surgery

  5. Wigs and hairpieces

  6. Scalp camouflage (such as hair fibers and makeup)

  7. Lifestyle changes (such as reducing stress and improving diet)
