The devastating problem of female hair loss is a lot more common than many people think. Over the last 10-20 years as women’s lives have become more stressful, with juggling work and family commitments, the problem appears to have become more widespread.
It can be difficult for a man to come to terms with losing his hair however at the least this is not unexpected and is socially acceptable.
Bald men can shave their hair off to minimize the effects of the balding and no one will bat an eyelash, in fact bald men may be described as stylish or distinguished looking!
The same however isn’t true for women so it is understandable why the problem of female hair loss and thinning hair is so upsetting for the women who experience this problem.
Female hair loss can be caused by a number of things. It is generally thought that coloring, styling with heated irons, perming and blow-drying is not to blame for female hair loss. However opinions differ and some trichologists would advise avoiding over styling particularly with heated equipment. Certainly over-styling and coloring can damage anyone’s hair leaving it dry, brittle and prone to breaking.
Sometimes female hair loss is caused by genetic factors at other times hormonal factors can play a part in thinning hair. Certain medications and medical treatments such as chemotherapy can cause hair loss. Female hair loss can be temporary i.e. after pregnancy or during times of stress or it may permanent.
Women suffering from thinning hair can be left despairing at the various solutions available to them. The advice is to usually cut thin hair short, but many women do not want to feel limited to one look.
The first thing to do if you are suffering from hair loss is to visit your doctor to make sure that there is no underlying health condition that is causing your hair to thin or fall out. Secondly it is worth considering hair extensions if you are experiencing thinning hair.
Extensions look natural and can be interwoven with your existing hair to give you a fuller head of hair. They also come in a variety of lengths and colors meaning that you can select the exact look you want and give your natural hair a break from over processing with color treatments or heated styling products.
Weaves and sewn in extensions are best avoided as these create tension that can cause damage to the hair and may result in further ‘traction’ hair loss. Fortunately cutting edge advances in hair extensions means that there are now various lightweight extension options that won’t cause damage to your natural hair.
Extensions can help women with thinning hair to regain her confidence and feel good about her appearance again. If you are worried about hair loss then it is worth contacting a qualified salon that can help you find out more about hair extensions that are suitable for women experiencing female hair loss.
