Contrary to popular misconceptions, most of the time female hair loss is not genetically induced. Hence, it can be treated in most cases. It is important to seek professional help and get your hair and self esteem back with a bang. The biggest problem encountered by most women is misdiagnosis of the condition.

You will immediately notice the difference during the initial consultation. If you go to a highly skilled specialist, he/she will take your medical history; have an in-depth look into your lifestyle and eating habits as well as your genetics. He will perform a biopsy of your scalp and will perform certain tests to determine the exact cause behind hair loss. After detection of the cause, hair specialist will proceed towards the treatment. Treatment can vary from taking certain multi vitamins, incorporating nutritious foods in your diet to going for a hair transplantation surgery. It completely depends on your particular condition.
