What is hair loss in women?
Female pattern hair loss also known as androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss in women. Hair loss in women can be caused by a variety of different reasons including genetic, stress, aging or various medical conditions.
What causes hair loss in women?
Hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons. Naturally, you will shed hair everyday but in some cases this can become a concern when hair doesn’t grow back. In women, the pattern of hair loss is less obvious than in men, hair loss is usually more diffuse affects the top of the scalp.
Female pattern baldness is a common hair loss condition associated with the natural and inevitable aging process. However, hair loss can be caused by other reason that people may not be aware of.
Why hair loss takes place in women?
Testosterone is a hormone found in both men and women (more in men). In the body, testosterone is converted into DHT ‘dihydrotestosterone’ via enzymes known as 5-alpha reductase. DHT attaches itself to the hair follicles on the scalp, causing them to continually shrink in size with every growth cycle. This leads to gradual thinning of hair and eventually becomes weaker until the hair follicles become dysfunctional and hair growth stops.
In women, hair loss is also caused by lack of certain nutrients, amongst other physical and psychological factors such as:
• Hormonal problems
• Underlying illness
• Fungal infection
What are the treatment options for hair loss?
The main aim of hair loss treatment is to ensure that the hair follicles receive as much blood as possible.
Minoxidil is the only approved medical hair loss treatment that’s has shown to reverse male baldness and female hair loss. It is licensed by the MHRA in the UK. It’s available as a lotion or foam and should be applied to the scalp daily to promote hair regrowth.
