  • Telogen effluvium- It occurs when the hair tends to stay in the shedding phase of the natural hair growth cycle. It can occur due to rapid weight loss, surgery, childbirth, stress, thyroid problems, hot weather, humidity, or some medications. 
  • Anagen effluvium- Unusual hair fall occurs during the natural growth phase. It is caused by autoimmune disease, fungal infection, chemotherapy, or radiation. 
  • Autoimmune disorder- Alopecia areata is caused when the weakened immune system (mostly due to stress) attacks the healthy hair follicles resulting in bald patches.
  • Scalp infection- Ringworms (fungus) or tinea capitis infection cause temporary hair loss as they grow to form red, itchy and scaly patches on the skin.
