The Shocking Truth About Female Hair Loss

When you talk about genetic hair loss most people think about the most common form of hair loss: male-pattern baldness. This is the type of hair loss that is passed on genetically to offspring from their mothers. Most often the recipients of this type of hair loss are men, but sometimes the gene can result in female hair loss.

For the woman facing this type of hair loss, there are a few hair loss treatment options that can be explored.

While genetic baldness in men is identified by a receding hairline or balding crown, genetic hair loss in women is a bit different. In most cases, a woman will not lose her hair in spots only but will thin out evenly throughout the head. Sometimes, this thinning can be quite severe and result in the woman having to wear a wig to cover up her thinning tresses. While female hair loss almost never results in a completely bald head, it can be extreme enough to expose the scalp quite plainly.

 

Hair loss due to chemical processes

No matter how healthy and strong your hair is today, you could experience severe hair loss after undergoing a harsh chemical process such as a perm or color. While almost all chemical hair fallout is due to operator error, the chance of it occurring is multiplied by chemical services that you perform on your hair at home. I've seen more than one case of female hair loss in clients who have bleached their hair at home, colored it over and then came to the salon for yet another bleaching. Not knowing this past history, the stylist used too strong a chemical, and the process resulted in hair loss.

 

Since most of these cases do not result in complete hair loss, the hair loss treatment options include protein treatments and other conditioning treatments to strengthen the remaining hair; a good hair cut that will remove most of the damage; and a gentle hair-care routine that will minimize further hair loss due to breakage. You should also refrain from using thermal styling tools and undergoing any further chemical procedures until the hair is completely grown out.

 

Hair loss due to stress

Cases of severe stress can literally cause handfuls of hair loss at a time. Women experiencing stressful conditions can experience female hair loss represented by thinning all over the head or in spots called alopecia areata. Alopecia areata means "Hair loss in spots or areas," and can result in bald circular patches on one or more spots of the scalp. While this type of hair loss is alarming, it is not permanent. After the stress is removed, most sufferers of this type of hair loss regrow all of the hair that they lost. In most cases, the hair loss treatment for stress-related hair loss is minimal. After ruling out other causes of hair loss, your doctor will likely recommend changes in your diet or ideas to help alleviate your stress. Keep in mind that it can take months for your hair to grow back even after the stressors have been eliminated.

 

Hair loss due to illness

Any type of extended illness or surgery can result in hair loss. Medications taken to combat certain types of illnesses can also cause your hair to become brittle and break or fall out altogether. The most identifiable type of hair loss is the loss associated with chemotherapy treatments. In most cases, this hair loss is complete and affects all areas of the body. While there is little that can be done to prevent this type of hair loss or promote growth during illness, surgery or chemotherapy treatments, this type of female hair loss is also temporary. In most cases, full recovery of hair is made after the illness is over. You can promote hair growth after the illness by getting regular trims and using growth enhancing shampoos and conditioners. Vitamin supplements may also be beneficial.

 

As you may have already guessed, hair loss in women is more common than we might think. And many may be experiencing hair loss and dismiss it as a natural occurrence that comes along with age. A lot of these women fail to seek the necessary hair loss treatment that can help them keep their remaining hair and regrow new hair. So, if you are experiencing hair loss, do not think that it is just because you are getting older. There may be something that you can do to keep the hair on your head from clogging your drain.

Top Ten Myths About Hair Loss

 

Have you ever seen the show Myth Busters? Well we're about to bust some common myths and misconceptions related to hair loss. Call us the 'Hair-Myth Busters.' The following myths have been passed on for generations. Some of them have been heard so many times that they must be true. Right? No. A myth is just that-a myth. There's no scientific evidence that supports any of these tall tales. Myth 1: Wearing a ball-cap can make you go bald. Oh, we've all heard this one before.

 

Incidentally, soldiers started reporting hair loss and attributed it to their uniform hats.

 

Now ask yourself this:

How come all of the professional baseball players aren't bald? This old tale is assumed to be passed down from the time of WWI. We could only attribute these reports as coincidence, as men display signs of male pattern baldness in their twenties.

 

Myth 2: Men who are balding should trim their hair every few weeks. It will make hair grow back faster. Sorry guys, it isn't true. Your head is not a lawn. Hair cannot be compared to weeds. When hair is gone, it's gone-unless of course it's temporary hair loss. That's entirely different. Otherwise, medical treatments are the only solution to re-grow missing hair.

 

Myth 3: Split ends must be repaired or you'll go bald! Unfortunately there's nothing that can 'repair' split ends. Nevertheless, split ends should be cut off, as the split ends will spread and promote more damage to your hair.

 

Myth 4: Women and men experiencing hair loss aren't brushing their hair enough. Woah! This 'Hair Myth' has been busted. Excessive brushing is the leading contributor to split ends and breakage of hair. This doesn't mean you shouldn't groom yourself anymore! Just get your hair the way you want it and put the brush down! Nobody needs to stroke their hair with a brush 100 times a day.

 

Myth 5: If you shave your head, less hair will grow back Spare us the Hair Scare! You can't shave away your hair follicles...Your hair will grow back if you shave your head.

 

Myth 6: Balding Men should pluck all of their gray hair, as two hairs will grow back in place of each one! If this were true, balding men would be pulling out their gray's by the fistful, just to get a full head of hair. I suppose they'd dye it later...But this story is obviously bogus.

 

Myth 7: Baldness can always be traced back to the mother's side of the family. Poor mom! While pattern baldness is genetic, it can be passed down from the mother or father's side. It may or may not skip generations. Guys, don't expect mom to reimurse you for your Minoxidil purchases!

 

Myth 8: Most women aren't attracted to bald men. Um, tell that to Bruce Willis, Billy Zane, Michael Jordan, Andre Agassi, Montel Williams, Billy Corgan, Michael Stipe, Charles Barkley, Stanley Tucci, Samuel L. Jackson, Nicholas Cage, and Vin Diesel. This one is obviously nothing more than a myth.

 

Myth 9: Losing 100 hairs a day is NOT normal. Actually, that's very normal. That's the average amount of hair that a person sheds on a daily basis.

 

Myth 10: Blow Dryers Cause Hair Loss Not exactly. Blow Dryers can over-dry and damage your hair. But once the damaged hair fall out, new hair will replace it. Balding isn't connected with blow-drying your hair.

Facts for Men and Women Experiencing Hair Loss

Hair plays an important role in most people's overall appearance. Hair, teeth, and nails are all admired and emulated as a sign of beauty in our society. Unfortunately, when we see signs of appearance slipping, we are devastated. As men and women, we have to realize that sometimes these things are out of our control. Hair loss does NOT imply that we're 'slipping' or 'aging poorly.' Instead, hair loss can be caused by a hereditary trait, a hormonal imbalance, stress, a reaction to medication, or a symptom of sickness. If you're concerned about your hair loss, you should contact your family physician. He/she may suggest a blood test and/or refer you to a dermatologist. A doctor can diagnose the cause of your condition through blood testing, history, and categorization.

In extreme cases, this condition may cause the complete loss of body hair.

Get the facts. The most common types of hair loss include:

Alopecia Areata: this condition is characterized by the loss of hair, which results in hairless, round patches on the scalp. It is commonly found in people under the age of thirty. Androgenetic Alopecia: this condition has been coined "pattern baldness." It's common is men and women over the age of forty and affects both men and women differently. Men tend to experience a receding/thinning front hairline. In women, this condition may result in thinning to the top of the scalp. Typically, the front hairline is preserved.

 

Telogen effluvium: Also known as "resting hair loss," can be a little trickier to diagnose as it doesn't effect one particular area of the scalp. Men and women who experience diffuse hair loss quite commonly experience this condition. It occurs often after childbirth, surgery, infection, and can accompany autoimmune diseases.

 

Did you know that hair products can cause hair loss? It's true.

- Men and women who wear tight ponytails and braids on a regular basis are prone to receding hairlines and thin hair. - Use of heavy styling products, including sprays, hairs, and gels (which contain alcohol) weather the hair and promote breakage. - Hair perms and dyes dry the hair and cause breakage. - Hair Loss in hair stylists is exceptionally high as they tend to use an excessive amount of cosmetic hair products.

 

Today, there's a number of treatments available to men and women experiencing balding and/or hair loss. You name it, it's available. Topical creams, oral medications, injections of cortisone, scalp reductions, and hair transplants are all accessible to the man and women who wish to change their appearance. Nevertheless, what works for one person may not work for another. Consult with your physician to see which option (if any) would suit your condition.

Your Feelings on Male Hair Loss

It's normal to feel the way you do about hair loss. Men experience feelings of anxiety, depression, and unattractiveness when they realize that they're losing their hair. It's not healthy to have self-pity party for one. Instead you need to grasp your feelings on the situation and make a proactive decision. If your hair loss has not been gradual, but instead very sudden, you should schedule an appointment with a family physician. A doctor will be able to describe the reason for your hair loss and suggest possible treatments to remedy the balding.

 

Every man experiences some form of hair loss. As a matter of fact, it's completely normal for a man to shed up to 100 hairs in a single day. Hair loss can occur for many different reasons. While some men experience hair loss because of stress, injury, sickness, and/or disease, others lose hair at an early age due to inheritance (Don't get angry at your folks!)

 

You may feel confused and vulnerable to over the counter 'remedies' that promise fabulous results. Be wary of these advertisements. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. These products can aggravate the condition; or worse-have side effects that will require additional treatment. As mentioned earlier, a proactive decision is necessary in terms of dealing with hair loss. Fortunately, you live in a society where bald men are not only accepted, but embraced! Take a look around. Clean-shaved heads can be found as far as the eye can see. Print advertisements, commercials, movies, and music videos all include men that proudly flaunt their bald heads. In 2006, bald means beautiful for men of all ages and backgrounds.

 

Before you can fully understand the feelings you may have about your condition, you need to discover the cause of your hair loss. Perhaps your hair loss is only temporary. Maybe it's a sign of something more serious. Whatever the cause-if it's something that happened quite suddenly; it should be checked out.

 

Other reasons to call a physician immediately, include:

* Rash or redness of scalp which accompanies a large amount of shedding when brushing/combing hair.

* Pain and/or tenderness to the scalp along with hair loss.

* Red circles/marks, abrasions in the area that is balding.

* Fever of 100° (37.8°) accompanied by hair loss with no known cause.

 

Patients that opt for treatment need to be pragmatic and realistic. Use of pills, shots, lotions, and shampoos will have different results for everyone. If you choose to accept your hair the way it is, than more power to you! There are a number of hairstyling techniques that may help you cover a bald spot.

 

Nevertheless, your health always comes first. Remember, men with thinning hair and or bald heads have a higher risk of sunburn and skin cancer. If you're heading outdoors for a soak in the sun, don't forget to wear a hat or lather up with sunscreen.

Hair Loss Remedies Around the Globe

In our culture, hair loss remedies come with hefty price tags, painful surgical procedures, ingestion of tablets, and the application of creams. It seems like a whole lots of work just to keep a person happy with their physical appearance. Doesn't it? But men and women have shed hair since the beginning of time. Being 'bald' isn't a new concept. It makes one wonder what remedies other cultures use to prevent and interrupt the balding process.

 

They include shampoos, conditioners and topical treatments, such as Rogaine for women, which stimulate hair growth and prevent further hair loss; vitamin supplements; and stimulatory treatments such as massage and infra-red therapy. The most successful of these hair loss treatments are the topical treatments. While they are quite expensive, they produce the best results.

 

Take a glance at some of these historic remedies. They may seem ridiculous to us-just like some of our remedies will seem laughable to someone in the year 2070.

 

In Victorian America

Can you picture yourself applying cologne, spirit of camphor, and a pigment of cantharides to the roots of your hair each night? This is one concoction that was used to treat hair loss. An additional 'treatment,' was the vigorous brushing of hair. Stiff brushes were used to promote soft and shiny hair, while soft hair brushes were believed to promote the growth of hair.

 

In Ancient Egypt

Oh, boy! The ancient Egyptians had some remedies for hair loss that may appear pretty wacky to us reader. For instance, the Egyptians believed that the application of chopped lettuce (to the bald area) would promote hair growth. Why lettuce, you may ask. Well, to the Egyptians, lettuce was associated with virility.

 

Another 'remedy' the Egyptians swore by was the application of castor oil to the scalp. Because the castor oil didn't exactly smell pleasant, they often mixed this with sweet almond oil to create a soothing aroma.

In India

How far would you go to re-grow your hair? Indians once believed that by boiling sage leaves in coconut oil, that the liquid's residue (once applied to hair) would cure balding.

 

In The Amazon

A banana a day keeps the surgeon away? Get this one: In the South American rainforests, the Taiwano Indians believed that hair loss and scalp problems could be treated with the heated extracts of bananas.

 

Modern Day North America

As you can see, we've come a long way. Or have we? Today our hair loss remedies promise consumers the moon. But are we ever happy with results? If you have a genetic disposition for balding early in life, it's your choice to try pills, products, and surgical procedures. But ask yourself: will these treatments make you happy? Can one physical alteration make you feel young and virile?

 

Men that do not have genetic balding traits; who are experiencing hair loss; should take the following into consideration:

 Tight hats, ponytails, and braids promote receding hairlines and thinning hair.  Bathe and groom yourself regularly.  Excessive worrying and stress can cause redundant shedding of hair and balding.  Healthy diets and a clean lifestyle can reduce the risk of balding.
