By understanding the causes and implications, you can better navigate your journey toward finding a solution.
Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women
Hair loss in women can happen for various reasons, including medical conditions, hormonal changes, or certain hair care practices.
Some common causes include:
Androgenetic Alopecia: Also known as female-pattern hair loss, is a hereditary condition affecting millions of women. It typically manifests as a gradual hair thinning, most notably at the crown and frontal scalp.
Telogen Effluvium: This type of temporary hair loss occurs when many hair follicles on the scalp enter the resting (telogen) phase of the hair growth cycle simultaneously, leading to excessive shedding and noticeable thinning.
Alopecia Areata: An autoimmune disorder causing unpredictable, patchy hair loss that can progress to total scalp hair loss (alopecia totalis) or total body hair loss (alopecia universalis).
Traction Alopecia: Hair loss caused by hairstyles that pull tightly on the roots, such as braids, ponytails, or extensions.
Hormonal Changes: Conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid problems, or changes due to menopause can lead to hair loss.
