Causes of Hair Loss in Women

Mink Hair Wholesale Causes of Hair Loss in Women

In the past few decades, hair loss in women has become a growing problem. More and more women are complaining of thinning hair. There are several reasons for this hair loss. Most often thinning hair is triggered by something going on inside the body such as your thyroids, a shift in hormones, a recent pregnancy, or an inflammatory condition.

Taking specific medications such as the birth control pill, blood thinners, anti-fungal, blood pressure or other maintenance medications can also cause hair loss in women as a result of the side effects. Women who have had chemotherapy treatment have also experienced hair loss. And these are just a few of the many causes out there.

 Diseases and Hair Loss In Women

There are also certain diseases that can cause hair loss in men and women. One of the warning signs of diabetes is hair loss for example. Specific tests need to be done to rule this or any other disease out as a cause of hair loss before you take any further action.

 When Is Hair Loss In Women Normal?

At any given point in time, hair experts predict that about seven to ten percent of a woman's hair is in a resting period. This resting period can last approximately two to three months. When the resting period is done, the hair falls out. New hair immediately starts to grow back and could take up to 6 years to grow out.

Hair experts theorize that approximately ninety percent of all hair is growing at one time. It is normal to experience hair loss/shedding on a daily basis.

 Treat Your Hair With Care

The way hair is treated can affect hair loss. When hair is always tied back, either in pigtails or ponytails, it can cause a condition called Alopecia. This condition results in scarring on the scalp and new hair growth is prohibited.

Often, women will have their hair permed or colored, to make it look better, but this can damage the hair beyond repair and actually causes Alopecia as well.
