Hormonal Imbalances

Testosterone is a hormone that’s responsible for deeper voices, muscular growth, and sex drive, among other things.

When your body converts testosterone to the less useful dihydrotestosterone (DHT), you can experience hair loss. DHT attacks and shrinks hair follicles and may result in hair thinning or hair loss.

Thyroid Imbalances

Patients with thyroid function issues that are overactive and underactive can often experience hair loss due to a speeding up of the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Thyroid medication does not always stop the associated hair loss, unfortunately.

Stress

Stress is a big factor in a number of reports of hair loss in men. This can be down to increased pressures at home or at work. Excessive physical or emotional stress can cause hair to stop growing normally and this can then take 2-3 months to shed. Stress-related hair loss is often not permanent which is a good thing to know as hair loss can also cause increased stress.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that is also made worse by increased stress. It causes hair to fall out in round patches on the scalp and elsewhere on the body due to your immune system attacking hair follicles. About 5% of people with alopecia will lose hair on their entire scalp. The hair often grows back but alopecia tends to reoccur.
