    People naturally lose hair on a daily basis, about 3-4 months after the individual hair stops growing. Excessive hair loss, however, is the result of an underlying cause or situation. A major illness or surgery can result in temporary hair loss, usually not occurring for about 3-4 months after. It is related to the stress of the situation. Abnormal hormone production is also a common cause, usually either the result of a thyroid or androgen (male) and estrogen (female) imbalance. Pregnancy can also change hormone levels in women, and often results in hair loss about 3 months after the birth of the baby. Medicines can result in temporary hair loss, and it can also be an early symptom of a certain disease or infection. Common male-pattern baldness and female-pattern baldness are inherited traits, caused by genetics.
