Both men and women experience some hair loss over time. You can determine whether your hair loss is typical or a problem. A loss of sixty to one hundred strands each day is fairly normal. If you are losing more than that, it’s a good idea to find out what might be the cause of your hair loss problem.

The following is a list of some of the common causes of hair loss.

Food Allergies

Some people who experience allergies to foods like dairy, soy, and wheat, also experience hair loss. While there is no scientific confirmation of a link between the two, a limited diet may reduce the amount of essential vitamins and minerals being absorbed into the body. If you have food allergies and some hair loss, speak with your healthcare provider about eating a balanced diet and taking supplements.

Hormonal Imbalances

Conditions that impact hormones may lead to hair loss. Many people who have food allergies also have hormonal conditions. The combination of conditions can exacerbate a hair loss issue.

Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition that has been linked to hair loss. This condition causes the immune system to create antibodies to deal with food items that cannot be properly broken down and digested. The antibodies damage the small intestine, making it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients. If you are suffering from celiac disease and have some hair loss, speak with your health care provider about getting the proper nutrients to support healthy hair growth.

Stress and Trauma

Stressful and traumatic events can force the body into a state of shock which can trigger an autoimmune reaction. This reaction can lead to damaged hair growth and subsequent hair loss. This typically happens in specific areas on the scalp. With proper medication, this condition can be resolved over time.

There are a variety of food options that can be beneficial to hair regeneration.

  • Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, protein and vitamin D which all promote healthy hair growth.
  • Yellow peppers have vitamin C which helps in strengthening both the hair follicle and shaft.
  • Vitamin C deficiency can be linked to split, dry hair and hair loss.
  • Oysters have high levels of zinc. A deficiency in zinc can be linked to hair loss.
  • Eggs contain biotin which enhances hair regeneration.
