Although a typical person sheds between 60 and 100 hairs a day, a woman who notices that her hair is significantly thinning is probably suffering from a more excessive hair loss. In these cases, the hair follicles are not regenerating hair strands that have fallen out, or the hair is just becoming thinner. In general, hair loss in women is very gradual and often cyclical. Additionally, female hair loss patterns differ from that of their male counterparts with their hair loss being diffuse. There are three general patterns of female-pattern hair loss as noted by the standard Ludwig Classification System:
Hair loss and thinning hair in women is primarily due to inherited genetics, but there are other causes of hair loss such as hormonal changes, discontinuation of birth control pills, sudden changes in diet, thyroid problems and stress. Some studies suggest that a majority of premenopausal women and a greater number of postmenopausal women will experience some degree of diffuse hair thinning as part of the natural aging process. A medical exam and blood lab work is often required for the proper diagnosis of female pattern hair loss. If certain medical causes can be identified and treated, female hair loss can in many cases be reversed. The keys for effective female hair loss treatment are a proper diagnosis by a hair loss expert, early intervention, and proper education of all the non surgical and surgical female hair loss solutions.
