What causes falling hair?

Falling hair has several causes which are largely dependent on different circumstances. The most common are:

Some Skin Diseases

Certain diseases of the skin such as lupus and psoriasis can cause hair to fall (although in the case of psoriasis, it is usually temporary due to the accumulation of scales, lichen planus, etc.)


When androgens or the male hormones go up, so that, for instance, women develop a thinning of the hair. For example, adrenal gland tumors, etc.


Hereditary baldness is falling hair that occurs in a pattern and that is inherited from your parents.

What Can Help?

VMV HYPOALLERGENICS® Essence Skin-Saving Superwash Hair and Body Milk Shampoo, Essence Skin-Saving Milk Conditioner, and Grandma Minnie Coo & Clean Baby Wash can be of some help because they are very gentle on hairs no matter what the cause of their falling, be it temporary (as in the case of pregnancy), or caused by disease or genes.
