Hair loss in Women
Hair is the best factor of natural attractiveness and a way of expressing personality. This is the main reason why women spend a lot of time and money curling, dyeing, drying, grooming, and styling their hair. People love to make their hair look perfect. But if their hair started to fall, the situation is too traumatic for them. It is difficult for them to live with hair loss in a society that observes hair as a sign of youthfulness, attractiveness, and good health. The person itself doesn’t feel attractive, beautiful and her self-confidence goes down continuously.
Hair loss in women is very different from men. It usually does not work with an immediate recession in the hairline. Instead, it starts by widening part and uniform thinning of hair throughout the scalp. The hair loss spreads to the scalp’s sides in the temples and above the ears if not treated. In rare cases, women go wholly or partially bald.
Most women notice hair loss in their 40s or 50s, but it can happen at any age. In women’s case, hair loss can be slow or sudden, temporary or permanent, depending on the cause behind.
What are the Causes of Hair Loss in Women?
Anemia, which appears due to iron deficiency, is also a prime reason for hair loss.
Chemotherapy makes your hair fall out, though it is temporary, and the loss will recover soon.
Diet without nutrition
Hair Loss in women can also be due to over-consumption of Vitamin A, lack of protein, or Vitamin B deficiency (Biotin) in your diet.
Female Pattern Baldness
In this situation, women find scattered thinning of hair throughout the scalp. This situation is also known as Androgenic alopecia and is hereditary.
This is also responsible for thinning of hair in women.
It is a lifelong autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles and causes hair loss. This disease is usually seen in women during childbearing years.
In this condition, women notice clumps of hair falling and even baldness in some scalp areas. This condition occurs due to a decrease in the level of estrogen (increase in testosterone level).
Several medications like Birth control medicines, antidepressants & blood thinners also make excessive hair fall.
Women experience unexpected hair loss during or after pregnancy. This hair loss is temporary.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is one more reason behind hair loss in females, resulting from hormonal imbalance in the male and female sex.
In that case, unexpected body change (like a significant operation, accident, or excessive stress) causes an increase in hair shedding.
In this disorder, people feel the urge to pull their hair from the body’s scalp or other parts. This causes patchy hair loss and even baldness in some women.
