Information On Women's Hair Loss


A popular misconception is that only men suffer from hair loss. A related error is that only a very small percentage of women experience hair loss. Both statements are incorrect; It is estimated that six out of ten women will experience some degree of hair loss. This process is especially harmful to women because it appears to be unnatural (like hair fall in men) and women's beauty is closely related to shiny, full-length hair.

Probably one of the most traumatic experiences that can affect a woman losing her hair. Baldness occurs when hair starts to fall (which is normal - about 100-150 a day), but does not grow back. Science is still responding to the exact reasons for the beginning of the process, but we know that genetic tendencies, aging, and diet are closely related (if not directly) related.

Causes of Hair Loss

Genetic hair loss and increased shedding (chronic telogen effluvium) are responsible for the majority of hair loss by women (up to 95% before menopause). Unlike men, women are more likely to experience thinning from the back of the front hairline to the crown.

There are two types of hair loss: telogen effluvium and anagen effluvium. This is due to drugs or processes such as chemotherapy. The first is because the abnormal number of hair follicles is at rest. Here are the reasons telogen effluvium:

- Pressure on the body due to surgery, disease, anemia, rapid weight change, and so on.

- Mental stress due to mental illness, death, depression, etc.

- Thyroid abnormalities

- Medicines such as high doses of Vitamin A, blood pressure pills, gout medicine, etc.

- Hormone causes such as birth control pills, pregnancy, and menopause

Here are the causes of temporary hair loss:

- Too little protein or iron in your diet

- Alopecia areata

- Stress or traumatic disease

- Give birth

- Skinny worms

When the above causes are resolved, normal hair growth returns.


A good, healthy, and balanced diet contributes to thicker hair. Large amounts of vitamin A should be avoided. Iron and iron-rich foods will contribute to healthy hair. Vegetarians and Vegetables are often targeted for hair loss because of their modified diet. Protein, iron, and zinc supplements should be taken daily if you are a vegan or vegetarian.

Physical and Emotional Stress

Experiencing severe illness and emotional stress can contribute to hair loss. The body begins to break down and function normally. The body knows that hair production is not essential for survival, so it concentrates its energy elsewhere and effectively causes hair loss. In most cases there is a three month delay between the event and the occurrence of hair loss. It may take up to three months for the hair to grow back after the resolution of the traumatic event.

Health conditions such as anemia, low blood count, and thyroid disorders are related to hair loss. This condition can be overcome and can be easily demonstrated by blood tests.

Hormone Changes

Hormone changes can cause hair loss in women. Pregnancy and discontinuation of birth control pills can cause hair loss. When a woman is pregnant the progesterone hormone level is high and causes hair loss. When hormone levels are balanced, women experience hair regrowth. Ironically, when a woman undergoes recovery, she will see a lot of hair fall. This is inactive hair that is replaced by healthier and more perfect hair.


- A balanced diet includes foods high in protein and iron

- Regular doctor checkup

- Counseling for stress (especially after traumatic events)

- Hairdressing, changing hairstyles, and or wigs.

- Hair transplant

- Minoxidil (Rogaine)

The good news is that if you have a hair loss, the cause is likely to improve. It is up to each woman to take care of herself and be proactive in combating hair loss. Because it takes some time to repair and regenerate the hair after many instances of hair loss, finding a good wig is recommended, so that you do not suffer from lack of confidence and cause more stress (which is bad for the hair) as your hair grows back.
