How to Reverse Female Hair Loss

How to Reverse Female Hair Loss

Hair thinning is the hallmark of hair loss in women. It can be due to a number of reasons including female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium, and some other conditions. While hair loss in some conditions such as telogen effluvium is temporary and hair grow back on their own, others may cause the hair to be lost permanently. There are ways to fight out hair loss and even reverse it in many cases. In the following lines, we shall discuss how hair loss can be countered and reversed in women.


Minoxidil is a solution that is applied to the scalp in order to counter the ill effects of alopecia. Available over the counter, the 2% solution is suggested for women. Even though a 5% solution offers better results, the possibility of growth of facial hair with a higher strength solution makes it less appealing. The effects of hair loss are stopped by minoxidil and in some cases, regrowth to takes place. It should be used after consulting with your primary care physician.

Lifestyle Changes

You can start with sleeping seven to eight hours every night. Exercising helps in increasing the blood flow to the various parts of the body including the scalp so it too helps. Eating foods in good nutrients is a must, as is avoiding highly fatty junk food. Consuming the minimum recommended dosage of vitamins and minerals has direct positive impacts on the hair follicles and it can help in the reversal of hair loss. These small steps can go a long way in treating the hair loss issue.

Home Remedies

Massaging with essential oils is the most commonly used home remedy. There are plenty of combinations that one can mix the oils in to help the hair. Applying whisked raw eggs and yogurt directly to the scalp also helps make hair stronger and softer at the same time.

Hair Transplant

If the hair loss is extensive and the above-mentioned remedies are not helping, a hair transplant is an ideal solution. There are plenty of methods with which the transplant can be done. Once the surgery takes place, it takes three to four months for the hair to start growing and over a year to reach full length. These hair are permanent and do not go through hair loss due to being DHT resistant.
