While a lot of people usually think of baldness as a male issue, it unfortunately also affects women as well. A woman’s hair is often one of their favourite features that they like to show off, as well as changing hairstyles and colours to try different looks. This can be devastating and take a huge emotional toll on women that can also affect their physical health. Some women may develop self-esteem and body issues from losing hair.
Female hair loss is when hair follicles become smaller and produce shorter, thinner, more brittle hairs. They can eventually stop producing any hair altogether. As opposed to male pattern baldness, female pattern baldness rarely results in complete baldness.
Possible Causes For Female Hair Loss
Menopause: Many women experience some form of hair loss before the age of 50. This gets worse once menopause starts, as their hormones have been supporting the growth of their hair. As estrogen decreases, hair begins to change and weaken.
Illnesses And Medical Conditions: Sometimes hair loss is not due to inheriting any hair loss genes. Illnesses and medical conditions such as thyroid disease, diabetes, lupus, anaemia, ringworm, polycystic ovary syndrome, and some cancer treatments are responsible for hair loss too.
Stress Or Trauma: Particularly stressful or traumatic events can cause hair to go grey or even fall out. This can include having surgery or going experiencing the death of a loved one.
Dieting And Poor Nutrition: If your body has low amounts of protein, iron, low vitamin D, or calcium, your body may try to compensate by shifting its nutritional store to vital organs. Your hair will receive less of these nutrition, therefore it will stop growing.
Rough Treatment Of Hair: Women who regularly have their hair pulled too tight to put it into a bun, ponytail, and braids can experience Traction Alopecia. Straightening and curling hair can be harmful to the health of hair too.
