What Are Some of The Most Common Reasons for Hair Loss? – Dr. Resul Yaman

Hair loss is not a new phenomenon. However, it has become more common in the last few decades. While there are many causes for hair loss, most are temporary conditions that can be treated with medications or surgical procedures.

However, some hair loss problems may require more permanent solutions such as medication or surgery to restore your scalp back to its original appearance. Hair transplantation is not a cosmetic procedure. It is a medical treatment that restores the natural appearance and thickness of the scalp. 

This Hair Transplant Turkey  can help men and women who are suffering from hair loss, alopecia, or other causes. Hair transplants are performed by surgeons who specialize in this field. These specialists have received extensive training in the technical aspects of hair transplantation, as well as in the psychological aspects of patient care. 

Hair loss can occur due to various reasons such as genetics, stress, hormonal imbalance, poor diet, poor hair care, and even infections. Here are some of these common reasons: 


Hair loss is usually hereditary but it doesn’t mean that you can’t control it or prevent it. There are certain genes that cause baldness in men and women alike. The good news is that these genes don’t have any impact on your life if you have them and nobody can tell from looking at your face.


Stress affects the health of your entire body including your hair, skin, and nails. Stress causes an increase in cortisol which leads to increased production of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) which is found in male pattern baldness. 

Cortisol also increases inflammation which reduces collagen formation and leads to weakening of the follicles resulting in further thinning of hair strands which may eventually lead to complete baldness. You need to address stress issues by getting rid of the root cause of stress through relaxation techniques like meditation or yoga etc.

Hormonal imbalance

Hormonal imbalances can cause male pattern baldness, but they also affect women who are going through menopause. Women with a history of pregnancy and childbirth should be especially careful about maintaining their hormone levels.

Alopecia areata (AA)

The autoimmune disorder AA causes patchy hair loss on the scalp, which often leads to bald patches on the crown of the head.

Parasites and infections

Parasitic infection is another possible cause of alopecia areata, as well as some forms of lupus vulgaris (a form of lupus that affects many parts of the body). In rare cases, parasites may also cause iron-deficiency anaemia that leads to iron-deficiency alopecia (commonly known as “pork pie” or “bald head”).

Tumors and other medical conditions

Tumors in the scalp can lead to alopecia areata if they’re not removed surgically.


Hair loss is a common problem. Men and women alike are affected by hair loss. Hair transplantation is an option for those who are suffering from male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia), female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), or a combination of the two.
