Causes Of Teenage Hair Loss In Girls

1.) Medications

Medication is a cause for hair loss in teenage girls such as from the medication Metoprolol.

Other types of medications young girls might be taking that may cause hair loss could be from acne medications, medications to treat ADHD and birth control pills. If your teen girl is taking any of these prescription medications or other types of medication drugs, this could very well be the cause for the hair loss that she is currently experiencing. 


2.) Over Hair Styling

Over hair styling causes severe breakage and hair loss thinning at the roots, med shaft to ends of the hair shaft. 

This is caused by getting chemical services done on your hair too often such as from perms, bleaching, or coloring the hair or by over processing the hair from using heated styling tools daily such as with a flat iron, curling iron or even hot rollers.


3.) Poor Nutrition

Over dieting and not eating the healthiest foods can cause hair loss.

Eating the wrong foods in your everyday diet can be what is causing your hair to thin and fall out.


4.) Stress

Stress can effect your immune system and can cause hair loss. Make sure that you are avoiding situations that can cause stress and anger.


5.) Trichotillomania

A habit of pulling the hair out yourself with force, doing this is a hair loss cause called trichotillomania but doing this will cause a form of traction alopecia hair loss.


6.) Hormones

Hormones can cause hair loss due to issues such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, lupus, and thyroid issues.


7.) Alopecia Areata

Teenage girls and young women can suffer from hair loss due to alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is actually quite common, statistics show that 1 in 50 people suffer from the condition at some point in their lives.


8.) Anemia

Anemia is an iron deficiency. It is a common cause of hair loss for young women & teenage girls. Please ask your doctor to find out if you have a deficiency in iron and if you should take an iron supplement to help fight against your hair loss.

 

9.) Androgenic Hair Loss

Androgenic hair loss is where you will start to see female pattern hair loss  in your teen years. Androgenic hair loss will usually start to thin at the top center of the scalp area and then start thinning all over the scalp.

Androgenic hair loss is considered genetic, but the good news is that it's treatable for most females.

My Top Product Picks: To Get Instant Volume Today! 

As a professional hairstylist, I was extremely skeptical of a shampoo claiming it helped with volume without making your hair look like a dry, tangled mess! I have been there, done that and it's not fun at all. 

What I am most impressed about with this product is with most shampoos you have to change shampoos very often because your hair can become immune to the properties, causing an opposite reaction making hair become too limp. But this shampoo is different because you can use for long term use and always have a nice bounce to your hair!

Which is great because 

in the latest hair loss news:  according to dermatologists, switching shampoos too often can be bad for your hair, it can even start to cause skin conditions such as scalp dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis, which in some cases can result in hair loss.

This shampoo cleanses, moisturizes and makes your hair bouncy with instant 24 hour volume!! 

The cons are unfortunately you can't find these in salons or in stores, although you can order this shampoo online and read reviews by clicking here...

Oh and don't forget to pick up the matching voluminous spray for in-between wash days, Read reviews or buy the volume spray by clicking here...
