Hair transplant for women is one of the most important topics to be discussed on social media, whereas women are looking for the perfect and permanent solution for weak hair density problems or hair loss.
Introduction to hair loss problem among women
Hair Loss in females causes depression or even a serious impact on women lifestyle.
In females, the problem is not the hair loss itself, but it is the psychological and emotional problems that hair loss causes in women, which are no less important than hair loss in men.
With all of that, unfortunately, hair loss in women is not taken seriously by family, friends or even by a woman’s personal doctor at times.
Regardless of the fact that hair loss in women itself can lead to psychological and emotional problems, people and society has a lack of understanding and do not recognize the criticality of these problems. It can build up a lower self-confidence, anxiety and depression.
We can consider hair loss in women a “normal” phenomenon. Gradual hair loss is often associated with aging.
However, temporary hair loss is often associated with pregnancy and childbirth.
Studies and scientific researches have shown that the female pattern baldness is linked to genetic factors inherited from parents and grandparents.
Common causes of hair loss for women
The main causes of hair loss in females or women are:
- Androgenetic Alopecia
Androgenetic Alopecia is a genetic pattern of hair loss in women and appears as a thinning in hair density that spreads over the middle area of the scalp. It is the most common type of hair loss. It occurs in about 20% of women.
- Alopecia Areata
Alopecia is a common disease whose causes are not yet known clearly, resulting in baldness patches or empty hair patches in the eyebrows.
- Telogen Effluvium
It is a disease that causes a full baldness and hair loss in women, it may be chronic or temporary but associated with severe fever, severe nutrition shortage, and chronic blood loss resulting from continues sever bleeding during menstruation.
- Loose Anagen Syndrome
Anagen syndrome causes hair loss before the normal growth cycle is complete. The hair can be taken out simply when bathing or when brushing it with a comb.
- Traction Alopecia
When the hair is braided and tied pulled back in a ponytail style tightly over time it causes a permanent damage to hair follicle and scalp and leads to hair loss.
Some chemicals used in hairdressing products may cause permanent hair and root damage and lead to hair loss.
In this case, the person feels compelled to pull out his hair in regular or random patterns sometimes because of stress, which leads over time to alopecia and permanent hair loss.
- Scarring Alopecia
Scalp scarring or scarring in the hair areas is also a reason for hair loss.
It usually affects the upper part of the scalp and occurs mostly in women. This phenomenon is common in African and Caribbean origin females and is believed to be associated with their constant tight traditional hairstyle.
It may also occur in women after menopause and is associated with hair follicle inflammation that leaves subsequent scars.
It is the disease where the thyroid gland cannot produce enough hormones and it can be associated with weight loss, faintness and hair loss.
Hormonal changes, body fatigue, stress during pregnancy and after giving birth may be a cause of temporary hair loss.
- Gynaecological diseases
Polycystic ovary or the fallopian tube obstruction causes an imbalance in the hormones secretion, which in turn affects hair follicles directly.
- Psychological state
Work or study stress, as well as exhaustion, may cause temporary hair loss for women.
Hair loss or baldness Treatment for women
Women and females who are suffering from hair loss follow many ways to solve hair density weakness problem or baldness, and it includes:
- Hairstyle Change.
- Hair dying
- Wearing synthetic or natural hair.
- Using wig in advanced cases of hair loss for women.
But these methods, even if it alleviates the problem, but it is not the best solution, it is either temporary or tiring and expensive.
It is the suitable and permanent treatment option for women with hair density problems, bald patches or complete baldness.
