Hair loss can be devastating for all that have experienced it. It maybe the result of disease, stress, aging, nutrition, heredity or prescription drugs. Trying to find the reason for your particular hair loss can be a mystery.

The following medications can cause hair loss, anticoagulants, antidepressants, TB drugs, cholesterol lowering medications, blood pressure medication, medications used for arthritis and acne (Keen, 2022). If you are taking any of these medications talk with your physician about the issue so you both can decide what is the best course of action.

Some things can not be reversed such as aging, but those issues related to stress, poor nutrition or medication causing sudden hair loss maybe be reversed. There are many products on the market that claim they promote hair growth. As a result many have lost money and have had no results. Adding vitamin B or folic acid can be helpful (Keen, 2022).

Consult your hair stylist to assist you with maintaining healthy hair. They can also assist you in determining what maybe causing the hair lost.

Just keeping you informed!
