Causes of Women's Hair Loss

Believe Hair Restoration Health and Wellness is at the leading edge of hair loss for women. When women lose their hair it can be caused by several different factors including:

  • Genetics - The most common cause of hair loss, usually labeled as male or female pattern baldness.
  • Hormonal Changes - Imbalances of hormones due to discontinuation of birth control pills, pregnancy, and menopause, all influence hair's growth and shedding phases.
  • Medical Conditions - Including trichotillomania (hair-pulling disorder), thyroid disease, alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease that attacks hair follicles), fungal infections (like ringworm), cause scarring on the scalp and can result in permanent hair loss because of the scarring.
  • Medications - Treatments or medications used to treat cancer, high blood pressure, arthritis, depression and heart problems can cause hair loss so it is important to know and explain your medical history.
  • Vitamins & Supplements and/or Change of Diet - When you do not balance the levels of your vitamins and minerals you run the risk of incurring too high of a dose. A diet lacking in protein, iron, and other nutrients can be causes of hair thinning or loss.
  • Stress - Significant stress pushes large numbers of hair follicles into a resting phase, once this occurs it leads to the hair loss or thinning.
  • Certain Hairstyles and/or Treatments - Hairstyles that cause continuous pulling on the hair can cause strands of your hair to break or fall out. In time, the continuous pulling can damage the hair follicles which in time can lead to permanent hair loss. Use of certain hair treatment chemicals when used incorrectly can also damage the hair follicle making it more susceptible to thinning and loss.
