Physical causes for hair loss or thinning:

Hormonal imbalance is the main cause for hair loss or thinning. As it's normally known, testosterone is the main hair producer hormone in your body. But one of its derivers has the opposite effect. DHT hormone (deriver from testosterone) is the one in charge of malfunctioning the hair production of certain areas (especially in the head). But, even though DHT is produced with testosterone, it is controlled by another hormone, estrogen.

So, when women are younger, estrogen and testosterone hormones are balanced, so DHT is controlled. But when women approach menopause, estrogen levels fluctuate leaving DHT production uncontrolled which ends on excessive hair loss or thinning. This is why maintaining healthy estrogen hormone balance is important to control hair loss or thinning. You should take a look at the following article which explains properly what steps to take for controlling hair loss by balancing hormones.
