As a woman, losing your hair is a very distressing experience. Suddenly, you start noticing more strands in your comb after brushing, and with each day that passes, your crowning glory seems to be getting thinner.

Though you might feel like you are the only woman with this problem, that is not the case. Almost half of hair loss sufferers are female, with many experiencing issues from their 20s and 30s. One of the keys to tackling the problem of hair loss is understanding the cause.


For some women, hair loss is a side effect of stress. Shedding is often linked to reduced nutrient absorption, and generalised thinning can occur due to stress related hormonal changes. Treat the problem at its root cause by following a balanced diet and participating in relaxing activities. If you would like to stimulate faster regrowth, seek advice from a hair loss specialist about Minoxidil, PRP therapy and UV light therapy treatments. 


Anaemia (iron deficiency) has a number of unpleasant effects on the body, but one of the first places you will see its impact is on your hair. It causes excess shedding, because the hair cells lack the iron they need to grow. Boosting your iron intake is beneficial – eat a varied diet, and if necessary, take vitamin supplements.

Alopecia areata

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition that causes the body to attack its own hair cells, making the hair fall out in round shaped patches. This condition has a good success rate for treatment. Steroid injections, and in some cases,Minoxidil, are helpful, but should only be prescribed to you by expert hair restoration doctors. 

Traction alopecia

Traction alopecia is usually seen in women who constantly wear their hair in tightly fixed styles and can result in permanent hair loss. Scalp micro pigmentation can help to disguise permanent bald patches, however it is best to tackle this condition by wearing looser styles that cause less strain on the hair.
