5 Reasons Why Your Hair is Thinning

Why is your hair thinning? At one time or another, everyone loses hair. On average, people lose about 50 to 100 hairs every day. However, if you’re losing more than your fair share, it’s normal to be concerned.

While some causes of hair loss are linked to an underlying medical condition, there are other causes of hair thinning than alopecia. Here are five common ones to keep in mind as you look at your options for restoration.

The Aging Process

We’ll tackle the elephant in the room and say that losing hair is a natural part of aging. As we get older, our hair follicles change. The loss and regrowth cycle slows down. In some cases, your hair may stop growing altogether.

However, everyone is different when it comes to hair loss. Some people continue to grow hair into their 70s or 80s, while others can lose their hair as early as their twenties.

However, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. Hair regrowth treatments can help prevent your hair from thinning as well as increase existing hair thickness.

It’s best to address hair loss at the first signs of hair thinning. Collagen in your scalp is still at it peak. That means the earlier you catch it, the more likely these treatments will work.


Going back to how everyone is different, this also includes genetics and hormones. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with genes that give them lush, soft hair for their entire lifespan.

Genetics also play a role in health issues such as hormonal imbalances. In fact, imbalanced hormones are a common reason why hair falls out.

If you suspect this is the case, it’s important to see an endocrinologist for a proper diagnosis. From there, they can come up with a plan to restore proper hormonal balance and possibly stop further hair loss.

Nutrient Deficiencies

As the saying goes, “You are what you eat,” and when it comes to hair health, it’s even more true. Lack of proper nutrition, like adequate levels of iron, vitamin A, protein, zinc, and vitamin D, is a primary cause of hair thinning.

Taking vitamins can help, but they don’t replace a healthy diet. Try incorporating fruits and vegetables into your diet to boost hair health.


Ah, stress. The cause of almost limitless issues. Among many things, stress can cause hair follicles to stop working properly and make the existing hair on your head fall out. While reducing stress levels is easier said than done, it’s not impossible.

There are many ways to eliminate stress such as yoga, getting a massage, practicing deep breathing, and meditation. If this feels like too much to handle on your own, consider seeing a mental health professional.

Hair Care

This is primarily a cause of hair loss for women, but men should take heed of this one too. Using certain hair products, like hair dye, relaxers, or bleach, can negatively impact your hair.

That’s because harsh chemicals can weaken your hair follicles. In addition, certain hairstyles and excessive use of hot styling tools can also dry out your hair and cause it to break off.
