Hormonal Imbalance: Hair loss can be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Thyroid hormone disorders are notorious for causing hair loss. Imbalance in sex hormones can also be implicated. Certain medications can also cause hair loss. Poor nutrition can also cause hair loss. You get the picture. It is important to see a doctor to help you figure out what might be causing your hair loss. Take care.
