WOMEN AND HAIR LOSS

Posted by with No Comments

The most common reason for hair loss typically occurs after menopause and is called female pattern baldness. ‘Female’ is key here, because the pattern differs from males. While men may find their front hairline receding, for women, hair loss shows up as a widening of the centre or side part, or an overall thinning that reveals more scalp on the crown. Female pattern baldness is a hereditary condition that is passed on by either parent.

Another common condition called telogen effluvium, a high number of hairs suddenly enter the resting and dying phases of the growth cycle. This condition is triggered by some event that taxes the body, such as a high fever or extreme weight loss. You may not notice that much of your hair has stopped growing at first, but that’s followed by a hard-to-miss spike in hair shedding a few weeks or months later.
