When you think about hair loss chances are a middle-aged man with a bald head comes to mind. While men are more likely to suffer hair loss, women are also at risk of losing their hair. As much as 40% of the reported population of people suffering from hair loss are female. Hair loss in men is an accepted part of life that doesn’t have an as dramatic effect as it does on women. Women’s hair loss can cause social anxiety, low self-esteem, and in some cases can even affect a person’s career. The Hair Loss Recovery Program has some important information regarding women’s hair loss that you should know.
What Causes Women’s Hair Loss?
Women can lose their hair for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes this hair loss is permanent while other times it will correct itself. While some hair loss can be controlled, most often there is little to do other than react to the hair loss or seek some form of treatment. Some of the most common reasons for female hair loss are;
- Androgenetic alopecia – hereditary hair loss
- Seborrheic dermatitis
- Certain medical conditions
- Excessive styling/brushing
- Alopecia Areata – immune disorder hair loss
- Iron Deficiency
- Unhealthy scalp skin
These are only a few reasons a woman may start losing her hair. Pregnancy and stress are also common causes of temporary hair loss. Pregnancy hair loss will resolve itself within a year following the birth. Hair loss caused by stress will resolve itself when the stress levels are under control.
Female Hair Restoration
Thankfully, both permanent and temporary hair loss can be treated. Most temporary hair loss concerns will resolve on their own when the triggering factor is removed. There are several different methods to effectively treat permanent hair loss. Hair restoration procedures have evolved along with modern medicine, and it can be used to help women regrow their natural hair.
However, most hair loss is caused by a secondary condition. Once this has been resolved, there is nothing preventing the regrowth of a full head of luscious locks.
