Hair loss is frightening experience for anyone, but can be an especially traumatic for women. Men can rock the bald look and have made it sexy. But for women’s hair loss, oftentimes people readily assumed she is unwell. Women’s hair loss is more common than you might think. In fact, about 30 million women in America alone have experienced extensive hair loss. This statistic doesn’t include the additional women with thinning hair as a result of various medications and menopause.
It’s normal to lose about 50 to 100 hairs each day for women with healthy scalps because new growth is steady. Changes in your diet, lifestyle setbacks and traumatic experiences can cause hair thinning which means your hair is shedding at an unhealthy rate.
Overactive or underactive thyroid gland, iron deficiency, and similar medical issues can also result in women’s hair loss. Women can also experience hair thinning during menopause when their estrogen levels are low.
Take Control Of Your Thinning Hair
As soon as you notice that you have thinning hair, you should consult a dermatologist who specializes in women’s hair loss or at the very least consult a doctor to find answers as to what could be going on. A dermatologist is more recommended because in additional to the normal process of acquiring your medical history, running blood tests, they usually will do a scalp biopsy – if not, ask them to do it.
