Temporary hair loss
There are so many things that can lead to temporary forms of hair loss. These can include something as simple as wearing your braids too tight, dramatic changes in your body, such as sudden weight loss, poor diet, giving birth, or high levels of stress. Certain types of hair loss are genetic and include alopecia areata and female pattern hair loss. Others may be caused by illnesses and medications along with deficiencies in certain nutrients. The most common nutrient deficiencies that lead to hair loss include: iron, protein, or B-family vitamins like B12.

Not washing your hair properly can also lead to hair loss. If you are not throroughly cleansing your scalp, it can lead to buildup that can block the follicle and inhibit hair growth. Keeping your scalp clean, nourished, and free of buildup is extremely important to ensure healthy hair growth.

How to prevent hair loss
1. Go natural. Stop trying to make her do something she was not designed to with harsh chemicals or extreme heat
2. Loosen or avoid braids, weaves or hair extensions to minimize the stress on your scalp, if you can
3. Minimize heat styling and use the lowest setting possible
4. Try to go chemical free or go two to three months between chemical relaxing treatments
