Fighting Hair Loss In Women

Jul 14, 2008
Women who experience hair loss can find it to be a very traumatic experience. There is a great deal of emphasis placed on the appearance of a woman's hair and her looks in general. A woman obtains most of her self-confidence and esteem from her appearance. While that may be a sad state of affairs it is the truth for many people. Men in the same situation are not as poorly looked upon as unattractive when they lose their hair.

Young girls will learn how women are supposed to behave from the women that are in their life. If the women around them, older sisters and mother, are primping in front of a mirror a great deal of the time, the young girl will learn that her looks are the most important part of her.

If that same young girl grows up and loses her hair, she will be lost in regards to how she is supposed to behave. Her self-esteem will be gone and she will believe that the best part of her is lost.

Hair loss is quite common in women. There are a great many treatments that are available to women who find themselves in this situation. If you are experiencing a hair loss you should check with your doctor to find the cause of the loss.

The reasons that women experience hair loss are quite different than the reasons that men do. Men generally experience hair loss that is due to genetics. In women there are a variety of other reasons for the loss.

Age, stress, diet, illness and hormones are some of the reasons that women lose their hair. The most common among these reasons is stress. The best treatment for hair loss is to reduce the amount of stress in your life.

Women tend to have very stressful lives. They are usually caring for a family and trying to work at the same time. This can cause a great amount of stress in their lives. The hectic schedule can cause some women to not take care of themselves. Her diet can become poor and she may not get enough rest.

Hair needs proper nutrition to be healthy and strong. If you do not have enough nutrition in your diet you may begin to suffer from a hair loss.

Hair loss can be the result of an illness that has not been diagnosed. That is why it is important to check with a doctor when you notice a hair loss. There could be a medical reason for the hair loss. If the illness is properly treated it may stop the hair from falling out.

Women will begin to lose their hair as they age. Sometime around age fifty or so a woman's hair will begin to thin and fall out. There are some treatments that can help with this type of hair loss. A visit to a dermatologist might offer some solutions for this type of hair loss.

Hormones are another reason that a woman will begin to lose her hair. There may be a treatment that will help with this type of hair loss. Check with your doctor to find out if there is a good treatment plan for your hormonal hair loss.

If you are taking medications this may be the cause of your hair loss as well. Check with the side effects of any medications you are taking to determine if a side effect is hair loss. Stopping the medication or changing to another type may prevent further loss of your hair.
