Women’s Hair Loss

Asian woman have problem with long hair loss attach in her hand.

Hair loss in women is on the rise and is now a common phenomenon. According to a study, it’s estimated that about 15% of the female population will experience hair loss at some point in their lives.

Signs of thinning and weakening hair can be observed as early as at age 20. The problem becomes more pronounced after the age of 40, with at least 40% of women being affected by hair loss. After age 50, more than half of women will notice significant signs of hair loss.

What is the hair growth cycle?

Typically, most people lose about 50-100 hairs daily. In cases of hair loss, an increased rate of shedding is observed.

If you think your hair has thinned compared to the past, it would be advisable to consult an experienced dermatologist. In cases of hair loss, we should consider whether the problem originates from within or outside the scalp. Causes such as dietary disorders and stress, low iron levels, thyroid disorders, and hormonal imbalances can lead to hair loss. Healthy and abundant hair requires proper nutrition and a well-functioning endocrine system.

Under normal conditions, each hair grows about 1.2 centimeters per month and completes its cycle every six years. When it reaches its expected length, it remains stable for a while and then falls out. Soon, a new hair begins to grow.

The causes of scalp thinning in women can be divided into physiological and pathological. Some of the most common causes of hair loss are the following:

Extensive hair loss may be temporary since the hair follicle is not damaged, and hair can grow back. Hair loss following childbirth or cancer treatment may recover. In any case, timely and targeted investigation of the causes will help in addressing the problem effectively.
