Female Hair Replacement
Hair loss whether temporary or permanent, can be a very frustrating situation to deal with. Especially when the sufferer is female.
Although male hair loss is emotionally draining, female hair loss is less accepted socially and less understood. Because of these social stigmas and situations, coping with hair loss for women takes a different approach.
Women who experience hair loss can feel embarrassed and be anxious that they do not have the "crowning glory" they would wish for - or that they feel they should have.
Diffuse hair loss is a gradual thinning of the hair as opposed to a straightforward bald patch and is the most common type of hair problems in women. The replacement of old hairs by new hairs is slowed down so that the hair becomes sparse and the scalp can be seen clearly through the hair.
The reasons of female hair loss are highly individual, but can include any combination of the following:
- Stress (emotional and physical)
- Hormonal imbalance, specifically androgen sensitivity
- Immune system irregularities
- Thyroid disorders
- Nutritional deficiencies (especially iron or vitamin A)
- Cosmetics (allergies and harsh treatments)
- Dental treatment
- Blood loss
Some women accept hair loss as a fact of life but for most others it's a source of anxiety and depression. It is easy for those with a full head of hair to say it's vain to want hair but baldness makes one look older and exaggerates existing facial aging.
