Hair fall in women may be connected to: • Heredity: Family history may be responsible for thinning of the hair on the top of your head. This type of female hair loss worsens once you lose estrogen at the time of menopause. • Hair Style: The hairstyle you keep may cause hair loss. If your hairstyle pulls on the roots, like corn rows, braids, and tight ponytails, it could lead to traction alopecia. Once your hair follicles get damaged, you might suffer from permanent hair loss. • Toxic Substances: Radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and some types of drugs lead to sudden hair loss. This happens during the hair growth stage and may inflict permanent damage to your hair follicles.
