Hair Loss in Women
It’s natural for hair to fall out (80 to 100 strands a day), but if you notice excessive hair loss, you may need treatment. Most women notice hair loss when their part widens, or their ponytail feels thin. But don’t despair, it can probably be rectified with natural treatments when you find out the cause of your hair loss. What causes hair loss in women usually falls into reactive or genetic categories. Reactive hair loss in women is caused by a variety of things like stress, hormone imbalances and other causes including:
Female pattern hair loss is also called androgenetic alopecia and begins in the late teens. There’s a strong genetic aspect to inherited female-pattern hair loss.
Hormone imbalances can affect your hair, though it thins naturally with age. Male hormones (androgens) may cause hair loss in women, and during menopause, your hormones may be unbalanced and cause hair loss.
Stress can raise androgen levels and cause hair loss in women. If you’re stressed and notice excessive hair loss, seek help from Bioscor.
Your hair needs iron and vitamins to grow, so a deficiency can cause hair loss.
Tight styles where your hair is pulled back can cause hairline fatigue, associated with hair loss.
Your hair needs protein, and the thyroid regulates your body’s protein production. So, if your thyroid is out of balance, it can affect hair follicles.
A vitamin B12 deficiency can cause hair loss due to the affect it has on red blood cells, which carry oxygen to your follicles. You may need supplements if you don’t eat animal products.
Avoid crash diets. Nutritional deficiencies often show up in our hair, so adopting a healthy, balanced diet will help to prevent hair loss.
The sooner you seek advice and treatment from Bioscor for your hair loss, the better your chances of a full recovery.
