Hair loss occurs for both men and women, and there are many different reasons as to why it happens. At Antech Hair & Skin Clinics, we are a hair loss clinic in Toronto that has seen many cases of hair loss on individuals. However, some clients are unsure as to why or how they started to lose their hair. This is an overview of some causes of hair loss.

To begin, hair loss does not necessarily just target the scalp, it can also occur in other parts of the body. There are some symptoms to look out for if you feel that your hair loss is becoming more consistent over time. When individuals lose their hair, it can be a slow and gradual process, while for others it can happen rapidly where hair falls off in clumps. 

The most common reason as to why individuals begin to lose hair is due to family genes that affect the process of hair growth. Because of these genes, some individuals begin to lose hair at a certain age, and it is completely hereditary, meaning that the individuals who have it could pass the gene down to their children.

Secondly, some forms of medication can affect an individual’s hair and could potentially result in hair loss. Often, some medication may have it under the labelling that it may cause hair loss, but some react to medication differently compared to others.

Lastly, situations that put some individuals under stress can cause hair loss. We talked about this in an older blog post, and usually this type of hair loss is temporary
