Causes of Women's Hair Loss

When a women starts losing her hair, a medication or medical condition is often the cause. Thinning hair can be caused by stress, hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, and thyroid problems. Despite common myths and old wives' tales, hair loss is rarely a result of teasing, coloring, or shampooing your hair too often.

Types of Hair Loss for Women Include:

Female pattern baldness

A form of androgenetic alopecia can happen in women. This hormonal process shortens the growth cycle of hair follicles.

Medical treatments

Prescription medications, chemotherapy, and radiation can cause advanced hair loss. If you have a procedure coming up, visit us so that your new hair can be matched to your natural growing hair.

Hormone or thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies

Thinning hair can be a result of menopause, and too little iron or vitamin B can also be to blame.

Alopecia areata

This autoimmune response causes patchy hair loss in different areas of the scalp.

Alopecia totalis

This advanced form of alopecia areata causes diffuse hair loss over the whole scalp.

Alopecia universalis

This is another type of alopecia areata that causes hair loss all over the body.

Telogen Effluvium

In telogen effluvium, hair becomes thin or falls out because the follicles enter the resting phase too early. This type of hair loss can be related to stressful or significant life events.

Alopecia universalis

Causing hair loss over the entire body, this is also a form of alopecia areata.

Other Medical Causes

An array of medical causes, from trichotillomania (chronic compulsive hair pulling) to lupus, can lead to hair loss. Thinning hair can signal a wide variety of underlying health issues, so it's important to speak with one of our specialists to make sure you're considering all the factors in your hair loss.

It's a common myth that women's hair loss is caused by over-treating -- teasing, using hair color, or even shampooing too often. While a few very specific hairstyles can cause damage over the course of years, this is rarely the root cause of female hair loss.
