Why is female hair loss a bit more complicated ?

Many believe hair loss mainly affects men but the American Hair Loss Association organization states that 40% of those who suffer from hair loss are women. It is usually stated that about half of all women over 50 years have problems with their hair loss. There are studies that show that a large proportion of women who suffer from female hair loss also suffer from depression and are suffering psychologically.

For many women, hair loss is taboo

Hair loss affects both self-esteem and well-being and body perception. A study by Viviscal showed that 65% of all women suffering from hair loss avoid any activity. It may be, for example, visiting the hairdresser, swim or the partner not to touch her hair.

Up to 39% thought that hair loss affected sex life and many thought they had worse self-esteem in different job situations – a majority thought they were judged due to hair loss. A large proportion hides their hair loss for friends and relatives.

Futhermore they do not even seek help from doctors as they want to keep their problems secret. But there is no need to suffer in silence anymore, thanks to innovative treatments tailored for women.

How can a baldness issue be diagnosed ?

Some women between the ages of 30 and 60 can notice a hair loss that affects the entire scalp. Hair loss can be massive at first, and then proceed gradually or cease. Female hair loss usually develops gradually. The hair loss may be uneven or over the entire scalp (diffuse hair loss). People usually lose about 100 hairs from the head every day while the scalp contains 100,000 hairs roughly.

Female hair loss differs in many respects from its male counterpart

Female hair loss is more often more difficult to diagnose – because it can often be due to many more causes, but hair loss before the age of 50 depends on certain food research. The most common problems are persistent hair loss (telogen effluvium) and reduced hair volume.

The causes of hair loss are often due to condemned iron deposits. A small intake of the amino acid lysine and ferritin is called the storage form of iron. Low iron levels are a very common cause of hair loss. Correction of these imbalances can stop a baldness issue. The hair cycle can return to its natural state. However, it may take time before the situation is corrected.

When does female pattern baldness begins ?

Women can lose hair for many different reasons and often the problems are transient. If you have genetic causes to lose your hair, it may begin as early as your teenage years. For example, women who suffer from androgenic alopecia may cause a hair loss when using birth control pills. Especially since those are known to trigger important hormonal changes.

Sometimes hair loss appears 2-3 months after completion of medication. Female hair loss statistically occurs in the early 20s and at the age of 50. It is also common to become thin-haired in conjunction with the menopause.

Baldness issues in connection with pregnancy

Fortunately it often ends when the hormones imbalance is resolved. During pregnancy, the number of anagenic hair increases from 70-90% up to 99%. The hair loss usually ends between 3 weeks to 3 months after giving birth.


Female hair loss is unfortunately an issue that concerns many women. Fortunately recent advancements in hair transplants make it now possible to tailor this treatment for women in order to finally recover their lost hair.
