There are many reasons why you may be losing your hair. Some of the major causes of hair loss are genetics, diet, stress, poor gut health, a weakened immune system, styling methods, certain medications, and trauma such as a recent surgery.

Certain types of hair loss may be caused by hormones or genetics. They're called androgenetic hair loss, male and female patterned hair loss, and Telogen Effluvium. These are pretty easy to identify and treat, especially when caught early.

Types of alopecia that are caused by a compromised immune system are Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis, and Alopecia Universalis. Although these types may be difficult to treat hair may begin to regrow once their immune health has returned to normal.

More common types for African American women is CCCA, Frontal Fibrosis, and Traction Alopecia. They are all types that have been associated with styling methods done to the hair.
