Hair Loss Solutions for Women

women hair loss

Right hairstyle and beautiful hair make women look beautiful and charming. This is the reason why women take hair loss very seriously. That’s why women should consult a dermatologist or trichologist (a doctor that specializes in hair treatment) as soon as possible if they notice any change in their hair density.

We lose around 100 hair daily; but this should not be a cause of concern because we grow 100 new hair as well. Hair loss becomes a concern when we start losing more hair than we grow. Another condition may call our concern if our hair becomes thin and fragile.

Hair loss and its treatment are different in men and women. Men usually lose hair because they are genetically predisposed to hair loss. Genetics play an important role in women hair loss as well, but there are many other conditions that contribute to hair loss in women.

A qualified trichologist must investigate the underlying cause of hair loss. Is it hormonal imbalance, or there is a deficiency in the diet. Is it temporary or permanent? There are certain situations where women face temporary hair loss due to temporary hormonal imbalances. If this the case with you, just remain calm. You will regain your hair when the underlying condition will be removed.

Fortunately, there are certain hair loss solutions for women that are effective in controlling hair loss or regaining lost hair. Proper diagnosis is recommended for everyone, but this factor is especially important for women. Women should always consult a trichologist before starting hair loss treatment.

Finasteride is an oral pill to control hair loss in men. It can also be prescribed to women in their non-childbearing years. It should never be taken by women in their child bearing years because it may interfere with the development of male fetus.

Minoxidil is another hair loss treatment. It comes as a hair spray and it must be applied to the scalp twice a day. It is effective in rejuvenating thinning hair and making them healthy and thick. This medication may also have side effects like hair growth on face. That’s why women should discuss it with their doctor before starting this treatment.

Many women are good candidates of a hair transplant. If you have healthy hair somewhere on your head, a hair transplant can redistribute them to give you a fuller appearance.
