What Affects Teenage Girls’ Hair Loss, and How Can It Be Prevented?


1. Adolescent androgenic alopecia:

This occurs due to high levels of androgen hormones, including testosterones, which is produced by adrenal glands in females. The condition occurs due to a genetic predisposition. The defective genes cause a surge in the production of androgens at puberty causing follicle damage. The increased level of hormones impact the hair-growing capability of the hair follicle, thus eventually causing hair loss.


2. Infection: Certain fungal infections such as tinea capitisi or scalp ringworm may cause hair loss in children and adults. The symptoms include hair loss in patches, bald spots, and itchy or red scalp.
