Causes of Hair Loss In Children


There are many causes of hair loss in children. Well in the past it was thought hair falling out was a condition which you normally get when you cross your 30 in age but these days there is a whole new trend and it had been observed that people under 20 are also experiencing the hair problem, so what are the reasons for that?

While there are several reasons for a child’s hair loss one of the first things you should look at is diet. Many children just don’t get a balanced diet and because of this many issues can arise one of them being hair loss.

If diet isn’t an issue you might want to take your child in for a physical to make sure there isn’t anything medically wrong that would be causing the hair loss so check with your doctor.

You might also want to look at your child’s behavior, are they stressed, is their a pattern to the hair loss, could they be pulling out their hair out of habit or stress?? Many things can play a roll in a child’s hair loss and before going to medical, surgical or chemical treatments for hair growth, it is best that you rule everything out first.

Too much styling can also lead to hair loss, color, straightening, perming etc. can all damage hair and cause it to fall out, so if at all possible do as little as possible as far as using styling products for you child’s hair.

A little online time can give you other ideas as to why your child might be losing their hair, and if all medical reasons are ruled out this is one way to get other information as to what might be going on.
