There has always been a tenancy to believe that men are the real sufferers of hair loss. Whereas the results of thinning hair are more profound and more noticeable in men, there is no doubt that hair loss continues to be a great problem for women and is even becoming more of an issue.

Womens hair loss problems are no different. So what are the main causes of hair loss for women
For a start there are medical conditions specific to females which are likely to cause hair loss. It has been found that pregnancy can cause hair loss. This is probably due to the fact that the body is dividing all its resources between baby and mum and secondary needs such as hair gets short shrift. The menopause is also a time when women may start to notice thinning hair. Autoimmune diseases such as polycystic ovary syndrome may also cause hair loss.
Other generalised gender conditions to do with the scalp may trigger the problem – most noticeably psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis.
Some of these medical issues may be short term or treatable so a visit to your GP is essential for a prognosis. But even in the short term, thinning hair or spots on your head where there is hair loss can be unsightly and worrisome – Skalp® Micro Pigmentation can offer a solution for this.
Hairstyles can cause issues.
Women are more likely to wear cornrows, braids or very tight pony tails and it is this type of hairstyle which cause unnecessary pressure on the hair follicles. We advise that you give your hair periods of relief by letting your hair down from time to time and do not bind it too tightly.
Genetic hair loss
Just like men, women can have the gene for hair loss passed down to them. Known colloquially as female pattern baldness its scientific name is androgenetic alopecia.
Getting the diet right
Women traditionally are more concerned than men about the correct diet in order to lose weight. As successful as this can be for weight loss some diets may inadvertently deprive the body of vitamins which are essential for hair growth.
This is just a brief look but it shows that it is always useful to be aware what what you are doing to your body in other areas may have an effect on hair loss.
