What Are the Causes of Hair Loss in Women

The Relationship Between Your Thyroid and Hair Loss

Your thyroid gland is probably best known for its role in metabolism. But when it’s not functioning properly – and releasing either too many or too few hormones – it has the potential to impact a number of factors, including the health of your hair. Fortunately, alopecia symptoms are usually reversible for most people experiencing thyroid hair loss.
