Stress can induce hair loss in women.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin reportedly suffered from stress-related hair loss.

The New York Times recently reported that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s hair was thinning as a result of extreme stress. If so, doctors say, she’s not the only one.

Dermatologists say that although life’s normal ups and downs aren’t enough to precipitate it, women can lose up to 50 percent of their hair after an unusually stressful event — from childbirth to surgery to death in the family, said Dallas dermatologist Rebecca Euwer.

“When someone comes in and says they’re losing their hair, you ask, ‘Well, what happened about three months ago?’ ” Euwer said.

This type of hair loss can occur both in men and women. But most of the known cases are reported by women.

Euwer said that hair goes through three phases: growing, resting and falling out.

About 90 percent of hair is in the growing phase. Most of the remaining hair is in the resting phase, where it remains for about three months. When people suffer trauma, it can shock hair follicles into a resting phase — and about three months later they fall out.

The good news is, it will usually grow back on its own.

However, if it’s the hair on top of your head that’s falling out, that could be the female equivalent of male-pattern baldness. If it is stress-related, the sides and back of the scalp also will be affected.

Treatment is the answer, whether the hair thinning is from stress or natural aging.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.

Women developing male-pattern baldness, with a receding hairline at the temple and around the ears.

18.08.2009 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

april-2008-5

“Older women produce less oestrogen and so have higher levels of testosterone, meaning they are prone to excess facial hair. Yet raised testosterone levels can also cause hair loss on the head, leading to some women developing male-pattern baldness, with a receding hairline at the temple and around the ears.”

Can anything be done for female pattern hair loss?

10.08.2009 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

confused-woman

QUESTION:  Can anything be done for female pattern hair loss?

 ANSWER:  Yes – treatments similar to those for men.

As in men, there are many causes of hair loss in women – including scalp infections and inflammation, and auto-immune attacks on the follicles in the skin that make hair.

But the most common problem for women, especially after menopause, is “female pattern hair loss,’’ or androgenetic alopecia. High levels of the male hormone testosterone can trigger this, but “most women with androgenetic alopecia have normal levels of testosterone,’’ says Dr. Lynne Goldberg, a dermatologist and director of the hair clinic at Boston Medical Center.

These women may have hair follicles that are genetically programmed to be extra sensitive to testosterone, which causes them to produce thinner – and eventually, no – hair, says Dr. Deborah Scott, a dermatologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

The first treatment, Scott says, is Rogaine (minoxidil), which must be used continuously to sustain any benefit. If it does not make new hair grow, it can help slow hair loss.

Propecia (finasteride) is used to treat hair loss in women in Europe, but is not government-approved here for that purpose. Studies suggest it does not work well in women, Scott says, though some doctors prescribe it, which they are allowed to do. Another option, though it, too, isn’t approved for this use, is Aldactone (spironolactone), a diuretic whose side effect is to block testosterone receptors.

Hair transplants are a good, but expensive, option, and not covered by insurance. The latest technique uses “micrografts,’’ meaning that hair follicles are surgically removed from one spot on the head – usually the back of the scalp – and inserted one or two hairs at a time in the bald area. While hair follicles in the crown of the head are often destroyed by testosterone, those at the back are not.

However, if your underlying problem is inflammation or infection, transplantation won’t help.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.
