What is Female Pattern Baldness?

The loss of hair for women can be caused by several factors including genetics, stress, medical issues or even your hair extensions. Whether it’s temporary or an ongoing issue, consulting a hair loss expert is essential to ensure the correct diagnosis is given.

The most common condition affecting women is Androgenetic Alopecia – Genetically experiencing ‘diffused thinning’ throughout the top of the crown downwards. Female pattern hair loss usually begins around the age of 30, or even early 20s.

Another common cause is hormonal changes, for example; after pregnancy or continuation of birth control pills, many females experience hair thinning usually only temporary.

How We Can Help

Severe Stress (Telogen Effluvium)

Usually, Telogen Effluvium is a temporary form of hair loss for women – Causing thinning of the hair all over the scalp. This is caused by an event such as childbirth, which shocks certain hair follicles resulting in the follicles to move from the growth phase to the resting. Normally this will happen 3 months after such event which triggered the loss of hair.

Examples are as follows: childbirth, starting or stopping taking contraceptives, pregnancy terminations, diet pills or any other medication. If you need any advice don’t hesitate to contact our professionals.

Diffuse Hair Loss (Chronic Telogen Effluvium)

Diffuse hair loss is like Telogen Effluvium in its causes, but the main difference being that hair loss is prolonged. The underlying causes of the hair loss has not been dealt with, resulting in it getting worse.

Treating the condition is important to not only do so effectively but also looking at the medical issues left which was the underlying problem.

Stress, anaemia, thyroid problems and medication side-effects are all examples of health-related conditions which may cause this type of hair loss.

Alopecia Areata

As you might know already, Alopecia causes patchy hair loss which may come suddenly causing bald circular patches. Commonly, this is triggered by an autoimmune disease; when the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign substances, resulting in the immune system attacking hair follicles.

Patches of hair loss can appear anywhere on the head but can quickly progress to more extreme cases, involving complete hair loss of the scalp and body. We recommend being treated sooner, rather than later is the key to your hair growth success.

Traction Alopecia

Traction Alopecia causes hair loss by having constant excessive tension on the hair roots, often due to overuse of hair extensions, tight braids or weaves. Hair follicles are then damaged, generally leading to hair loss around the hairline and temples, left with ‘fluffy’ hairs remaining.

Having a heavy hairpiece or ponytail extension concentrating in a specific location regularly, may result in that area losing a patch of hair. This is mainly a female condition but can affect males too.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is thought to affect as many as 1 in 5 women in the UK; a hormonal disorder specifically affecting your endocrine levels causing hormonal imbalances.

Suffering with this means increased levels of androgens, testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DNT). High amounts of DHT results in them latching onto the hair follicles, causing hair growth to stop. Also known as another form of alopecia.
