What you need to know about female hair loss
Unfortunately, more than 50% of females will experience significant and visible hair loss. The most common cause is female pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia.
These are factors that can influence or cause hair loss for women:
- Hormonal changes: pregnancy/menopause are often associated with hair loss
- Genetics: studies indicate a connection to pattern baldness
- Ageing: women over 40 tend to experience increased hair loss
- Stress: significant physical/emotional stress has been linked to hair loss
- Diet: deficiencies in nutrients can affect hair health
- Vitamin deficiency: low levels of certain vitamins can affect hair loss
- Medications: hair loss can be a rare medication side effect; a variety of drugs may contribute, such as oral birth control
- Hairstyle: some chemical hair treatments and hairstyles may contribute to hair loss
The sooner you address your hair loss, the more likely you are to prevent further damage. Este Medical Group offers several treatments that can restore and regrow your hair.
Before any treatment begins, we recommend you have an Este Medical consultation to determine what type of female hair loss you are experiencing. Once the type and extent of hair loss is established the most optimal treatment and treatment timeline can be started.
What types of hair loss do women experience?
Hair loss can range from mild to extreme cases, with a variety of different causes. These are some of the most prevalent types of hair loss for women.
Female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia)
This is the most common type of female hair loss; a hereditary condition that can also be influenced by ageing and hormone levels. As women age, hormones play a role in hair loss during menopause. Hair becomes finer and thinner as follicles shrink, hair grows more slowly and falls out more frequently.
Diffuse hair loss (chronic telogen effluvium)
Chronic telogen effluvium is a more persistent and prolonged type of hair loss which generally affects the entire scalp. Severe stress, anaemia, thyroid problems, and medication side effects are all examples of health-related conditions that may trigger, as well as perpetuate, this type of hair loss.
Alopecia is immune system related and often results in patchy hair loss. This condition causes cells in your system to attack the hair follicles. It is not considered a serious medical condition. Hair growth treatments are available to help with this type of hair loss.
This type of hair loss is often caused by repeated trauma to hair follicles, often from pulling hair back into tight hairstyles that put extreme pressure on the hair roots. When hair is pulled from the roots to make a hairstyle it may cause long-term damage and hair loss.
