Genetics is the main cause behind hair loss. Such type of hair loss often leads to baldness and the only effective solution is hair transplant surgery. Aside from this factor, a wide variety of other factors also contributes in hair loss. They include:
Harsh hair styles or products
Harsh hair styles pull your hair tight and damage strands causing hair loss. Hairstyles that include use of rollers, tight rubber bands may cause inflammation in the follicles. Use of hair products that are harsh or do not suit your hair type also cause hair damage. Depending on the degree of damage caused, hair loss may be permanent.
Hormonal imbalance can also cause hair loss. It is more common among women who experience hormonal shifts because of pregnancy, birth control pills, childbirth or menopause. These factors make more hair follicles enter dormant phase that leads to hair shedding.

Alopecia is an autoimmune condition that causes permanent hair loss.Chemotherapy – cancer treatment – also contributes in hair loss since it kills fast-growing cells in the body and affect hair follicles as well.
