There are several reasons for hair loss, including heredity, chemotherapy and alopecia.

Male and female pattern baldness is caused by genetics and is not preventable.

Chemotherapy side effects can cause hair loss. After chemotherapy the hair grows back but not always the same way.

Alopecia is a disease that causes a person's autoimmune system to attack the hair follicles. Traction alopecia is caused by certain hairstyles that pull the hair tightly, like cornrows. A very stressful event can also cause hair loss, but hair usually returns.

In our society hair is very important, especially for women and the loss of hair can be a very traumatic experience.
