Women are usually more attract towards their hairs but they start getting see-through quality of thinning in their early life. Since women don’t get rapid hair loss that is the reason they can compensate their hair loss with new hair style. Difficulty in adopting new hairstyle is the first sign for female hair loss.
On brighter side, women can hide hair loss on the head with the help of new hairstyle or by using hair extension as well. It doesn’t matter how best they try to hide their hair loss it is always disappointment for women when they found their black thick and lush hairs into their hairbrush. Women often start feeling old and less sexy when they start noticing hair loss.
Differentiate Between Possible Causes For Female Hair Loss:
There are many identified pattern of female hair loss and they are linked to different causes. That is the reason doctors often observe the hair loss pattern before suggesting the treatment for hair loss.
According to estimation, there are 15% females that get classic male hair loss pattern that is genetic hair loss in the intact frontal hairline. Another common female hair loss pattern is the hair loss at top of head sparing back and side. Many female get diffuse hair loss that is hair loss all over the head. This condition is very much common in postmenopausal women but some young girls also get this problem.
Perimenopausal women often get worst hair thinning that is 2-5 inches behind the hairline. This condition normally diagnose in women at 30s or 40s. However this is very rare in women at their 20s. On brighter side, once any woman gets this type of hair thinning then she doesn’t get any male hair loss pattern until they reach their menopause.
Genetic Female Hair Loss:
When it comes to hair loss women have many distinct relationships between mother, sister, aunty and grandmother. Our team recently research about the group of females that are having balding and hair thinning problems. They find at least one relative with similar hair loss pattern.
Generic hair loss in female is uncommon which is called Female Hair Loss Pattern and Female Androgenetic Alopecia. Men hair loss pattern is completely different from female hair loss pattern and that is reason male hair loss pattern is classified by Norwood Classification. While in postmenopausal, hair loss pattern is explained as hair thinning starts right behind the normal hairline and extending to swirl and beyond.
All adult women are having higher amount of miniaturization which causes hair thinning before hair loss. In few cases of female hair loss it is seen that increase in amount of male sex hormone (such as testosterone, androsterone and DHT) leads to hair loss. But in most cases these sex hormones found to be normal.
However, the mechanism in female hair loss found to be misunderstood due to the presence of an enzyme known as Aromatase. Loss of estrogen in postmenopausal women means protection is withdrawn which also results in hair thinning.
Female usually get different kind of hair loss pattern and that is the reason different classification is used to explain female hair loss pattern. The process that is used for explaining female hair loss pattern is Ludwig Classification. This classification is divided into three types. In the first type women get mild widening of the part width, in the second type women get increase widening of the part width and in the third type women get significant widening of the part width.
There are very few women who get hair loss similar to male hair loss pattern and it is best to describe them with Norwood Classification. However there are only 15% women with hair loss who fall in this category.
Medical Diseases That Causes Female Hair Loss:
Besides the genetic reason for female hair loss, there are some medical diseases that can also create female hair loss. Some of these diseases are Amentia, thyroid disease and autoimmune diseases.
In our research we discovered there are some females who get hair loss because of quick weight loss. These women lost quick pounds in short amount of time through dieting or fad diets. Women body takes time to heal but because of quick weight loss body can’t able to adjust accordingly as a result hair loss.
Any women who are suffering from hair loss should consult their doctors to find out if there is any underlying disease that is causing hair loss. In this situation consulting family doctor is the best option because he already knows your family history and he can tell you if your hair loss is genetic or something else. To evaluate your health condition your doctor may need your blood sample. Additionally it is possible you may need to go through biopsy if your doctor seen symptom of any disease in your body.
After examining blood test your doctor can suggest you treatment if there is any disease in your body. After the treatment of disease your hair loss may stop. But it is important to note that your hair loss can come once again.
Postpartum Hair Loss:
Pregnancy changes complete hormone balance in the body. When any woman gets pregnant, body increases production of Estrogen hormone that also increases hair growth.
Pregnant women get excited to find their hairs grow thicker and lush. But after baby is born, estrogen level goes down and hair growth stop for a time being. In some women hairs start falling and they don’t grow for at least 2-3 months. In between this period they often feel they are getting bald but it is nothing to worry because hairs will start growing after 2-3 months. Since hairs only grow ½ inch in a month that is the reason women notice some hairs after 12 months.
In the end I would like to say abovementioned are some of the causes for female hair loss. There are many women who able to get more than ½ inch hair growth in a month with the help of Hair Loss Protocol (Rebuild Hair Program). The process of hair growth may take some time that is the reason you must stay committed with the plan if you want to get successful results in the long run.
