Hair loss can be experienced nowadays by both men and women and even though science seems to have developed a lot in the last decade, remedies for women hair loss are not that many as we would like.
Specialists say we normally loose in a day up to 100 hairs. Of course the hair regenerates continuously and this is why we don’t get to be bold in one month of loosing hair daily.
The reason why women loose so much hair is mostly due to hormonal imbalances that occur during pregnancy and afterwards, if taking certain birth control pills, and during menopause. Genetics can play an important part into hair fall too. Some people start loosing a lot of hair after the age of 12 and this is a family trait, especially in men. In women high levels of testosterone can lead to‘man like’ alopecia. Even infections of the scalp, like psoriasis, eczemas and mycosis can lead to a massive hair fall. Thyroid affections and diabetes, certain drugs and even stress are responsible too for this unpleasant phenomenon.
In case the hair loss was caused by giving birth, you should wait a little while as it will probably grow back in time. Until the hair regenerates you can try a different hairdo, as it will mask the bald areas and will aid you remain calm when going out in the society.
Nowadays there are special lotions based on minoxidil that have helped both men and women into getting back their loss hair. The problem with this treatment is that you must use it a long time, for 3 or 4 moths until the results are visible and afterwards you must continue to use it for an undetermined period of time otherwise the newly regenerated hair will fall again after interrupting the treatment.
Try not to invest so much hope into supplements. Supplements that are based on zinc, silica and vitamin A work in some cases, but only in those that have been caused by an excess of sebum production.
The best thing to do when you see you are loosing too much hair is to go to your family doctor and find out what is the cause of your hair loss. By determining the cause you can get a targeted treatment and not waste money on products that don’t even suit your case.
As a last option, if nothing works and your hair does not regenerate, you can opt for hair transplant. It is a bit expensive, but it will do wonders to your looks and to your feelings too as not all of us can easily accept hair loss.
