Most women don’t grow up anticipating that one day they will experience thinning hair. The good news is that, while female hair loss can be caused by many different factors, there is always a solution that offers safe, lasting results.

Women can face either mild or extreme hair loss and for a variety of different reasons. Before determining which solution is best for you, it may be helpful to consider some of the primary causes of women’s hair loss.

What Causes Women’s Hair Loss?

Affecting approximately 30 million women, hair loss is often first noticed as a part widening or a patchy bald spot. The bald spot generally worsens over time. Determining the cause of hair loss early will lead to the best possible outcome.

The causes of female hair loss are more varied than the causes of male hair loss. With that said, female pattern hair loss is always a consideration. This condition works very similarly to its male counterpart; it has to do with an overproduction of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a testosterone byproduct that clogs the follicles and prevents them from working as they are supposed to. While female pattern hair loss has a strong hereditary component, it can also be brought on by stress.

There are a number of medical conditions and treatments that can cause hair loss, too; chemotherapy is one of the most obvious examples, as well as prescription medicines. Thyroid problems, pregnancy, menopause, anything that could interfere with hormone levels can potentially be the culprit behind hair loss.

Alopecia is another word for hair loss and there are several different types of alopecia. Alopecia areata happens when the immune system attacks the hair follicles. This can come and go, and it causes uneven hair loss, usually in patches. Alopecia totalis is a chronic condition where a woman loses all hair from her scalp. Alopecia universalis is a widespread medical condition that can cause complete and permanent hair loss over the scalp and entire body.

Be sure to inform your doctor if you are experiencing hair loss or thinning. Scheduling a visit with your healthcare provider will help you rule out any medical-related conditions that may be contributing to your hair loss.
