    Post Why do females lose hair? The answers and possibilities

    Female hair loss consists of many factors that relate to the body. Nutrition, hormones, and thyroid levels really account for a significant number of female hair loss cases. Dermatological problems, weight loss, and other medical conditions can cause females to lose their hair. I havenít seen many female hair loss cases. Our female patients are less than about 10% of our whole patient base. The loss is usually seen in front, but a small percentage of female patients lose the crown (back) after much age. Luckily, there are several natural and unnatural non-surgical solutions to combat female hair loss. Other causes for females to experience hair loss are age, medications, family history, hair loss pattern, and poor health. An online consultation would probably be a good start to finding a solution for you.

    For females, the surgical solution to restoring hair loss should be another option after trying hair loss products. Here is an example of how bad a female can suffer from a problem like hair loss. This individual began seeing hair loss at the age of 50 and chose to have a hair transplant.Another good source of info on the subject can be seen at www.hairloss4women.com/

    One of the reasons why women lose hair is because of low estrogen levels.

    Hair loss can be caused by any number of conditions, reflected in a specific diagnosis. Some diagnoses have alopecia in their title, such as alopecia areata or scarring alopecia, but many do not, such as telogen effluvium.

    Alopecia can be caused by many factors from genetics to drugs. While androgenetic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness, AGA for short) is by far the most common form of hair loss, dermatologists also see many people with other forms of alopecia. Several hundred diseases have hair loss as a primary symptom.

    Hair loss occur in women due to various reasons like physical stress, pregnancy, over intake of vitamins such as vitamin A, lack of protein, heredity, hormonal changes, stress, over styling, usage of heavy medicines, etc. Women of all ages suffer from hair loss due to such reasons. Hence hair loss is a definite process in a woman’s life. Usually women try various different hair products for hair loss. Hair loss is not noticed until it gets severe. But once it affects a major portion of the scalp, it won’t be easy to bring back the hair by taking medicines and other treatments. One best solution for getting back the lost hair is to undergo hair transplant. The procedures used for hair transplant like Follicular unit transplant and Follicular unit extraction not only bring back the natural look but also gives us a permanent solution for hair loss.

    Trichologist believes weight loss, low iron levels, poor diet and stress, along with thyroid and hormonal imbalance, can all cause hair to fall. Telogen effluvium is a phenomenon that occurs after pregnancy, major surgery, drastic weight loss, or extreme stress, in which you shed large amounts of hair every day, usually when shampooing, styling, or brushing.

    Genetic hair loss is the only hair loss in which the follicle gradually gets smaller and finer and produces smaller and finer hair until it stops altogether and then you get the thinning. The gene can be inherited from either your mother's or father's side of the family, though you're more likely to have it if both of your parents had hair loss.

    No matter whatís the reason and cause, hair loss has drastic emotional and Physical impact on women. It could affect self-esteem, confidence and relationship. As a precautionary measure, avoid using appliances that overheat your hair. Set your hair dryer on cool and low settings, and minimise your use of flat irons. Don't dye your hair more than one or two shades its normal colour: The more severe the colour change, the more chemicals you require, which can make hair break.
