Hair Loss & Thinning Women

About 40 percent of women can experience hair loss and thinning by the time they’re 50. In Women, the thinning usually starts at the part line, and they may develop sparse areas at the temple. PRP injections and microneedling can be an effective natural solution for women experiencing hair loss and thinning.

What Causes Hair Loss and Thinning Women?

Women experience androgenetic alopecia, which can be considered the same condition that causes male pattern baldness. It’s a genetic trait that is passed on through generations. Hormones can play a role in thinning hair. Because of this, many women may experience hair loss after menopause.

The main culprit of female hair thinning and loss can be due to the growing phase decelerating. As the hair falls out, it can take longer for new strands to grow. Most women lose up to 100 hairs a day. However, women with female pattern balding can lose more than that. If the follicles can’t keep up, new hairs may not be able to fill in the empty spots as quickly.

Plus, this condition can cause the hair follicles to shrink. The strands that do grow back are usually thinner and lighter than normal.

Hormones aren’t always to blame for hair loss and thinning women. Other factors that may affect female hair loss include:

  • Emotional distress – Overwhelming life changes, such as losing a loved one or divorce
  • Physical stress – Illness, injury or physical trauma
  • Pregnancy – Hormones make women hold onto hair while pregnant and lose more than normal in the months after giving birth.
  • Medications – Some chemotherapy drugs, hormone replacement therapy medications, birth control pills and antibiotics cause hair loss in women.
  • Nutrient imbalances – Iron deficiency, excess vitamin A and low vitamin levels

How Can You Tell if You Have Hair Loss?

Female pattern baldness looks different than thinning hair in men. In males, the hair typically recedes from the front, creating bald patches that extend backward from the temples. A bald spot can also develop at the top of the head, extending into a larger bare patch.

In women, the thinning starts at the part line. Women usually don’t get receding hairlines, although they may develop sparse areas at the temples. Females can get bare patches on the tops of their heads, but they seldom go completely bald.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) is a distinctive form of hair loss that may occur in women with androgenetic alopecia. Many women can be affected by FPHL. Up to 40% of women by age 50 can show signs of hair loss.

As the name suggests, Androgenetic Alopecia involves the action of androgens (male sex hormones), specifically DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Individuals with pattern hair loss can have an increased sensitivity to DHT. DHT binds onto susceptible hair follicles, which can cause them to shrink. Over time this impacts the hair growth cycle where hair may start to thin, shorten and can eventually stop growing.

It can be considered normal to shed between 50 to 100 hairs per day. This is because of the hair’s growth cycle, which consists of 3 phases: anagen, catagen and telogen. The anagen phase is the growth phase of the hair in which the hair is actively growing. This phase usually lasts 2 to 7 years, and normally 85-90% of scalp hairs are in this phase at any given time. The catagen phase is known as the transition phase in which hair shaft production is completed. The telogen phase, otherwise known as the rest phase, is the last phase of the growth cycle. In this phase, a club hair is fully formed resulting in a hard, white and dry material at the root and the hair is eventually shed from the scalp.

Those with Androgenetic Alopecia, hair shedding is usually in excess of 100 hairs per day, as follicular miniaturisation can cause the hair’s growth cycle to become progressively shorter. This can result in significantly less hairs in the anagen phase at any given time, which is why hair shedding may be more frequent in those with Androgenetic Alopecia.
