Woman with hair loss problem

Hair loss is a common problem that disturbs many of us in our daily lives. When we see a lot of hair in drains while showering, it makes us panic and distressed. The hair loss is not the concern for only men, but women also experience extensive hair thinning while they age.

It is normal to lose about 50 to 100 strands a day as it happens in the normal cycle of hair regrowth. But, if the number exceeds, there might be a reason to worry. Women are the ones that are more conscious of their hair styling and texture. In an intention to style their hair the way they want, women sometimes may harm their hair either by exerting a great force on them or by using some unsuitable products for styling. We have highlighted some conventional reasons for women hair loss which are as follows.

Hereditary hair loss

One of the most common causes of hair loss in women is genetics. The hair loss that occurs due to the genes is also known as Androgenic Alopecia or female pattern hair loss. In this condition, women tend to experience extensive hair thinning from all around the scalp.

Telogen Effluvium

Telogen Effluvium is a disease in which hair strands goes in to resting stage more quickly than normal, altering the usual cycle of hair growth. Women experience the ill effects of Telogen Effluvium after pregnancy, change in weight or consistent pressure or tension that makes the female pattern baldness serious. This can be occurred because of any solution which incorporates hostile to sorrow and fiery infections.

Lack of protein

If you are not getting enough protein in your eating routine, you may start experiencing prominent hair fall. Hair is basically made of protein, so one needs to eat protein-rich foods to keep up a solid hair growth. Without sufficient proteins, the body can’t proficiently make new hair to replace the hair that has shed. Including foods such as,  chicken, soy items, low-fat cheddar, eggs, almonds, beans, and yogurt in your diet can reduce protein deficiency.

Thyroid changes

Changes in thyroid overall performance or even small imbalance can sometimes lead to hair loss issues. Thyroid disorders can cause either temporary hair loss or a permanent pattern baldness. The temporary hair loss condition does not need any treatment and hair will be restored when the thyroid imbalance is corrected. Whereas, the pattern baldness is permanent and needs a treatment. The people who have a history of hair loss in their family are more prone to this condition.


Hair thinning in women is curable through some traditional non-surgical treatments like Acell/PRP injections, laser hair therapy, and Mesotherapy.
