  1. Lifestyle factors

About this cause, it includes 3 tips.

The first one is that you are not eating right. Your hair needs nutrients to grow and stay healthy. Sudden weight loss, low iron levels or a poor diet can all lead to hair shedding.

Also, if you are too stressed, you may suffer from hair losing.

Last but not the least, you hair is too tight. Fashion and healthy hair often sit together about as well as oil and water – tight braids, man buns, cornrows and harsh treatments can all damage your scalp significantly. And if the roots are damaged, that means hair loss.

    I seem to lose a lot of hair – I could never commit a crime because I would be easy to catch with all the dna I would leave behind, lol. I use a shampoo and conditioner for hair loss that I buy from Groupon. It hasn’t cured the problem but I do seem to be losing a lot less hair than before.
