Female hair loss is a problem with a rising trend nowadays. Apart from hereditary factors, modern living has contributed to this increase of female hair loss. The women’s hair loss tends to be diffuse, i.e. thinning hair all over the surface of the scalp, rather than like the typical male baldness. Also the frontal hair line in women tends to be maintained, in contrast to men where the hair loss starts from the front and extends to the top of the head.
Female hair loss affects about 15% of women during their lifetime, while the rate of 40% is manifested after the age of 40 years. After the age of 50, more than half of women perceive significant signs of hair loss. The issue of female hair loss is very sensitive and places an emotional burden on most women even at an early stage, since hair beauty is a dominant element of feminine appearance.
If the increase of female hair loss occurs in spring or autumn, it is considered normal. Also normal is considered if hair loss occurs after childbirth or after a surgical operation under general anesthesia. There are however cases where help from experts is needed. The highest percentage of female hair loss is due to androgenetic alopecia (female type), which is caused by hormonal disorders. Other factors that may cause female hair loss is anemia, low iron levels, inadequate protein intake and thyroid gland troubles. When female hair loss is a symptom of a pathological problem, its eradication through appropriate treatment, will address the issue of hair loss without any additional treatment.
