While hair loss may be very common among men, it affects women enough, too, that it is worth monitoring and studying.  It is just a natural part of life, after all, but it is not only a sign of aging. Indeed, there are other causes; so women who might want to reduce their risk for losing their hair should pay attention to the following Capilia hair loss solutions.

REDUCE PHYSICAL STRESS

Generally speaking, trauma—or stress—can cause hair loss; at least, temporarily.  This trauma can come from a medical procedure, a car accident, extreme weather shifts, severe illness, or just a little more stress than you are used to in your everyday life.  When things change dramatically—and force you out of your comfort zone—that stress can throw your hormones out of whack and that can actually contribute to hair loss.  After all, the human body is consistently losing and regrowing hair—we lose about 100 hairs a day—and stress can disrupt this cycle. Essentially, then, the more stress you have, the more you disrupt this cycle, and the more likely it will be that you will start to lose your hair.Image result for Three Reasons Women Can Lose Their Hair

To reduce risk of hair loss, then, you simply need to make smarter lifestyle choices that either result in lower stress or in helping you to more deeply relax.

VITAMIN A DEFICIENCY

Vitamin A is important for hair health. As a matter of fact, the American Academy of Dermatology says that the average adults should be consuming roughly 5,000 International Units (IU) of Vitamin A every single day.  Obviously, you can get this vitamin A from your diet.  Pretty much just eat more fruits and vegetables and you should be fine. You can also take a nutritional supplement, as the average supplement provides between 2,500 and 10,000 IU of Vitamin A.

PREGNANCY

Just as stress can cause hormonal imbalances that can result in hair loss, so can pregnancy.  Actually, you could just simply think of pregnancy as a type of stress.  When a woman is pregnant, the entire body has to deal with increased stress, and the hormones are often a bit out of balance. This, of course, can result in hair loss. The good news is that if this hair loss is simply the result of hormonal imbalance, hair should grow back and go back to normal after the baby is born. Exercise can help regulate hormones, too, if you want to try to get this hair loss under control
