Causes of Hair Loss in Women
People shed, on average, 50 to 100 hairs per day. It’s a natural balance, but when a woman loses more hairs than are growing back, it presents a problem that affects their appearance and confidence. There are many reasons why women can experience hair loss, known as alopecia in the medical community, and it affects 50 percent of all women.
According to dermatologists, an iron deficiency is the most common cause of hair loss that they see in women. Restrictive diets, rapid weight loss, and lack of a healthy diet all contribute to vitamin deficiencies. Changes in diet will provide hair with the nutrients it requires for healthy growth.
Stress comes from multiple sources and ravages the body in multiple ways, including hair loss. It can come from sources encompassing physical injuries, employment woes, mental health issues, divorce, and the loss of a family member, animal companion or friend. When stress is relieved, hair will grow back.
Aging and Hormones
Hormones change as women age and those imbalances and changes can play havoc with hair. Premenstrual women are especially at risk for hair loss as hormone levels fluctuate. It also affects women that have just had a child. Hair loss due to menopause gets worse as more estrogen is lost.
Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is one of the most common causes of hair loss and baldness. Hair will normally thin across the top of the head and on the sides. Unfortunately, this type of hair loss isn’t reversible.
Ponytails, braids and cornrows are great for keeping hair contained and out of the way, but it places enormous stress on hair strands resulting in breakage. The loss of hair that comes with the hairstyles can become permanent with repeated and frequent use of those hairstyles.
