Hairstyling Tip of the Day: Don’t Mess With Your Hormones! Just as pregnancy and other prescriptions drugs, such as steroids, can cause hair loss — changing your naturally occurring hormones can have the same affect. The most common cause of pre-mature hair loss is caused by the abuse of Birth Control Pills. Changing your pill, or not taking it on a regular basis can cause some serious hair loss (or the opposite for some of the more lucky ladies). If you have noticed more frequent hair loss, or are not taking the pill exactly as prescribed — consult your doctor. They may be able to recommend a different pill that will help prevent this hair loss — or provide advice on how to stick to a more routine schedule!
