Fact: The hair is the 1st indicator of what’s going on in the body.
Many factors contribute to hair loss. Sometimes we don’t realize that our daily activities can cause stress throughout our body and then affect our hair, skin, and nails.
Each person’s symptoms may vary and you may not experience all of them at the same time. However, there are many reasons women experience hair loss.
7 Common Reasons For Female Hair Loss
- Hormonal Imbalance
Androgenetic Alopecia (alopecia androgene´tica): a progressive, diffuse, symmetric loss of scalp hair. With women hair loss generally begins later in life, with less severe hair loss starting in the front area of the scalp. However, with clients who are experiencing Androgenetic Alopecia, hair loss may appear in the form of a patched balding effect.
Too little protein or lack of essential vitamins will not provide the nutrients your hair needs to grow and can affect your hair’s ability to produce new follicles. Healthy hair always starts from the inside out!
Anxiety is a key factor that can affect hair loss and many times we don’t realize we are putting ourselves under mental and physical stress just living our daily lives. There are 3 forms of stress that are known to cause hair loss.
- Telogen effluvium. In telogen effluvium (TEL-o-jun uh-FLOO-vee-um), significant stress pushes large numbers of hair follicles into a resting phase. Within a few months, affected hairs might fall out suddenly when simply combing or washing your hair.
- Trichotillomania. Trichotillomania (trik-o-til-o-MAY-nee-uh) is an irresistible urge to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body. Hair pulling can be a way of dealing with negative or uncomfortable feelings, such as stress, tension, loneliness, boredom or frustration.
- Alopecia areata. A variety of factors are thought to cause alopecia areata (al-o-PEE-she-uh ar-e-A-tuh), possibly including severe stress. With alopecia areata, the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles — causing hair loss.
- Fibromyalgia can contribute to hair loss.
- Digestive problems
- Autoimmune disease
- High blood pressure
- Diabetes and pre-diabetes
- Anticoagulants (blood thinners)
- Gout medications
- Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors
- Vitamin A
- Female hormones
- And more
There are many different types of alopecia that can cause hair loss:
Alopecia Areata (AA)
Alopecia areata is known to be an autoimmune condition that causes patchy hair loss. It can result in a single bald patch or even patchy hair loss.
Alopecia Totalis (AT)
Alopecia totalis is an advanced form of alopecia areata that results in the full loss of all hair on the scalp.
Alopecia Universalis (AU)
Alopecia universalis is an advanced form of alopecia areata that results in the full loss of all hair on the body, including eyebrows and eyelashes.
Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)
Also known as female pattern baldness. It is a thinning of your hair to a transparent like state, in women. It is thought to be a form of hereditary hair loss and is a type of progressive hair loss.
Scarring Alopecias (Cicatricial Alopecias)
Scarring alopecias, also known as cicatricial alopecias, is a group of disorders that cause hair loss permanently.
Traction alopecia is commonly due to extensive pulling or tension on your hair shafts as a result of different hairstyles. It is seen most often in women, particularly those of Afro-Caribbean and East Indian origin. Hair loss usually depends on which way the hair is being pulled. Prolonged traction alopecia can cease new hair follicles from developing and lead to losing hair permanently.
This type of hair loss is generally due to chemicals such as those used to treat cancer. Initially it takes the form of patchy hair loss, which most often then becomes total hair loss. The good news about this is that if you stop using these chemicals, the hair normally grows back (usually 6 months later). Other drugs also can also cause hair loss. Many medicines used to treat common diseases can create hair loss.
This is a form of hair loss where more than regular amounts of hair fall out. There is a general hair ‘thinning’. Unlike some other scalp and hair conditions, it is usually temporary and the hair growth recovers most of the time.
