According to Best Health Magazine, nearly 40 percent of women will experience some form of hair loss during their lifetimes.[i] This comes as a surprise to many. While hair loss among men is frequently discussed, female hair loss is usually surrounded by taboos and stigmas that leave women with thinning or balding hair feeling uncomfortable, lost, and deeply alone. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we want women who encounter hair loss to know that it’s very common and that solutions are available.
Female hair loss has several different possible causes, and successful treatment depends on the reasons for the thinning or balding hair. It’s normal for women to lose around 100 hairs per day, so regular, minor shedding of hair shouldn’t worry you. However, if the part in your hair begins to widen significantly, then you might be experiencing female-pattern baldness––a hereditary condition that sets in after menopause. If the balding continues and you begin to lose your eyebrows or eyelashes, you may be experiencing a rare autoimmune disease called alopecia areata. However, if you begin losing your hair after childbirth or other physically traumatic events, then your hair loss is likely part of the body’s natural healing process. Your hair growth will return to normal after your body recovers from its shock.
To prevent hair loss, make sure that you are maintaining proper nutrition and exercise. Additionally, getting enough sleep each night is vital to the body’s regular functioning, including hair growth. In many instances, your basic lifestyle choices can have the biggest impact on how your body responds to stress. Improving your general health can postpone the manifestation of genetic diseases linked to hair loss. If lifestyle changes aren’t enough, you may qualify for steroid creams, injections, or non-prescription remedies like Rogaine and Apo-Gain.
The most successful hair regrowth strategy, however, is hair transplant surgery. In this procedure, a trained surgeon harvests healthy hair follicles and implants them into the balding or thinning regions of the hair. Many women have restored their hairlines, the part in their hair, and thickened thinning areas through hair transplant surgeries.
