The days of women having to hide their thinning hair under a scarf or wig are long gone. As knowledge about the causes of female hair loss has expanded, so has the range of treatments available. Read on to discover three common reasons why women experience hair loss and three hair restoration solutions that can help beat the problem for good.
Causes of Female Hair Loss
Female Pattern Baldness
Androgenetic alopecia, also known as pattern baldness, is one of the top causes of female hair loss. It is, in part, caused by genetics and causes thinning all over the scalp.
Hormonal changes at different stages in a woman’s life can cause her hair to fall out. Excess shedding after giving birth is a common experience, while hormone medications (such as oral contraceptives) can alter hair growth cycles.
Following diets that strictly control calories or limit the variety of foods you eat may help you lose weight, but they could also cause hair loss. A lack of some nutrients can leave your hair looking dull, or even slow growth.
Treatments for Female Hair Loss
Minoxidil is a clinically proven and FDA approved medicine for the treatment of female androgenetic alopecia. It is supplied as a liquid which is applied directly to your scalp. Regular use of minoxidil can stop the progression of hair loss and stimulate hair growth.
LLLT Laser Cap
Low Light Laser Therapy is a safe and convenient way to fight back against hair loss in your own home or on the go. The portable Laser Cap directs light at the hair follicles to stimulate growth and requires just three sessions of thirty minutes per week.
