HAIR LOSS DOESN'T JUST HAPPEN TO MEN, IT HAPPENS TO WOMEN AS WELL

01.04.2008 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

It’s true, hair loss happens to women as well as men. This may come as a shock, but hair loss in women is not as rare as you might think. The fact is, women do experience hair loss, but they may not realize it until later in life.

Just like with men, hair loss in women comes on gradually. Unless you are paying attention, you may gaze into the mirror one morning and be shocked that your hair appears to have lost its fullness; there may be thinning spots, which upon close inspection reveal balding areas.

1 Out of Every 3 Women Will Lose Hair

When a woman begins losing her hair, it is usually due to a condition known as androgenetic alopecia. The result of this form of hair loss is a thinning of the hair in the top, and front areas of the head. Androgenetic alopecia is hereditary and can be inherited from either side of the family. It is estimated that about 33% of postmenopausal women experience hair loss that can be contributed to androgenetic alopecia.

Additional causes of hair loss in women include, stress, birth control pills, and hormone imbalance. Though distressing, hair loss due to these causes normally only lasts about a year. After giving birth, a woman may also experience some hair loss, and a number of women are extremely shocked when it occurs, but can take comfort in knowing that it is not usually permanent.

Permanent hair loss can occur if the hair follicle dies, but if the hair follicle is in a dormant state, there is still hope to stop, and possibly even reverse hair loss. Fortunately there is a way to combat hair loss.

Hair Loss Immediately After Pregnancy Is Often Considered Abnormal

27.03.2008 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

Hair loss immediately after childbirth is common and totally normal. Women are concerned for postpartum has loss and consider it abnormal. Immediate thinning of hair loss insists them to thinks if they have any fatal disease manifested in the form of hair thinning.

Studies show postpartum or after pregnancy hair loss is totally normal and a part of regular hair growth life cycle. Your hair grows from hair follicles. Each follicle gives rise to a single hair shaft.

Each hair shaft undergoes regular life cycle for its development and replacement with a new one. Anagen is the first phase of hair growth in which it grows as much as and last in 2 to 6 years. The longer the anagen phase, the longer the hair you will have.

Catagen is second phase starts just after ending of anagen. Catagen is intermittent or transitional phase lasting in 2 to 3 weeks. During the phase, hair shaft neither grow nor rest.

Telogen Phase is the third and last phase of hair growth cycle. During this phase old hair are lost and hair enter anagen phase again to maintain normal hair growth. It is the period when you notice hair in your comb and brush.

The duration of each phase is influenced by internal and external stimuli. During pregnancy, women body undergoes uncontrolled hormonal fluctuation, irregular periods etc. It is often caused due to lack of nutrients needed for healthy growth of cells and completion of pregnancy. Folic acid and iron are essential for pregnancy, while most women lack them due to junk and insufficient diet.

Therefore, postpartum hair loss is usually not a result of fatal disease but merely a result of hormonal fluctuation and lack of nutrients. Although it is the most common case, you must consult your doctor for possible risks and diseases etc.

For inhibition of postpartum hair loss, herbal hair loss treatments are often used to meet nutrients requirements of hair follicles and normalize severe hormonal fluctuation after pregnancy. These treatments are used topically twice or thrice a day for follicular nourishments.

Female Hair Loss: Sarah’s Story

19.02.2008 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED

I had known for years that I’d have to confront my thinning hair problem at some stage. Having older sisters with various degrees of hair thinning led me to believe that I’d follow suit sooner or later. I took some action after I noticed that I had started to look haggard, much older than I should do. I put it down to having had a few stressful years but then I started to notice my visible scalp more & more.

I decided that I would have to look into what could be done as, although I don’t consider myself to be vain, I had begun to feel less attractive and feminine. I googled ‘hair’ ‘loss’ ‘women’ and as The Hair Centre, in Victoria, looked very credible I looked through their information. I couldn’t help feel sceptical as I’ve not heard about any hair loss treatment that has been proven to work.

At the first consultation I met Gary who took pictures of my hair. With the digital pictures on screen I could see how stressed and thin my hair had become. I still felt sceptical that anything could be done to properly rectify my thinning hair but seeing the extent of the damage made it worth while to try, despite having to borrow the money.

I find the treatment very straight forward and easy to adapt into my daily washing routines. The condition if my hair improved very quickly and I could see and feel some grow back within the first three months. Gary was pleased by how responsive my hair had been to treatment and advised that by adding follicle builder to my treatment programme I should get a full recovery.

I’ve been receiving this treatment for a total of seven months, with three months including the follicle builder, and my hair is dramatically fuller and healthier. Gary tells me that I am half way to a full recovery but I’m already receiving regular compliments about my hair again. I feel much more confident about my appearance and I’m looking forward to the next few months and getting even bigger hair!
