Hair loss is a stressful situation and it can happen in both men and women.  I read in a study that 60% of women deal with some degree of hair loss. In women hair loss can be short term, it can can be caused by stress, lack of iron, birth control pills, menopause, yo-yo dieting, pregnancy, hormone imbalance, medications and certain types of diseases.  In men hair loss can be caused by stressful events, heredity, serious diseases, certain medication, everyday stress, lack of iron and genetics.  When it is caused by heredity men have a sensitivity to Dihydrotesterone which causes the hair follicles to shrink, and shortens the lifespan of the hair follicle.
