Causes of female hair loss
No woman wants to get thin hair as a result of extreme hair loss. A full head of hair means a lot for our appearance, but also for our self-confidence. The most common causes of hair loss in women are:
• Hair loss because of autoimmune disorder (alopecia areata) • Hair loss caused by other diseases • Hair loss caused by hormones • Hair loss caused by medication • Hair loss by stress (telogen effluvium)
Hair Stem Cell Clinic offers a suitable solution in the form of a Hair Stem Cell Transplant. Ask for a free consultation with no obligation and a doctor will discuss your personal situation with you. A diagnosis will be made, which will be used to put together an individual treatment plan.
Hereditary baldness, also known asandrogenetic alopecia, is not an illness. It is a natural body process that is influenced by hereditary factors and hormones. Baldness in women usually occurs in the transition when oestrogen production is slowing down. The hair growth process becomes disrupted as a result of hair thinning.
Baldness in women occurs evenly and is spread across the surface of the scalp. Hair then becomes thinner from the crown out towards the rest of the scalp. This will eventually result in permanent baldness. In hereditary baldness, the hair growth phase is reduced from between three and five years to just a few months. After the growth phase, new hair grows increasingly thinner until the hair follicle dies and cannot produce hair anymore. If this occurs in your family, then there is a good chance that it will affect you too.
