For women, hair loss can be a triple threat, as it impacts them medically, emotionally, and cosmetically. Women lose confidence in their attractiveness when the hair begins to thin or fall out in patches. Finding the root of the hair loss issue is the beginning of treatment.
Hair loss in women can be attributed to one of four causes. Androgenetic alopecia is a thinning of the hair all over the scalp due to an excess of androgens. Telogen effluvium is caused by trauma, like major surgery or childbirth. The telogen phase of hair shedding is activated by the trauma and hair falls out by the handful. Anagen effluvium is the result of chemotherapy. Hair is impacted at the cellular level and the result can be a loss of 90 percent of the hair during this period of treatment. The fourth cause of hair loss is traction alopecia, caused by tightly braided hair, cornrows, and pony tails. The hair is traumatized by the tight constrictions and falls out.
