Hair loss for Women

Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women

Hair loss is mostly not a cosmetic problem and has to be analyzed and treated medically. Hair and beauty salons can only offer limited relief by recommending hair oils, massages, shampoos & hair treatment products. It is best to seek medical opinion for such cases.

Alopecia is the medical term for excessive or abnormal hair loss. This is a sign that something is wrong with your body. Hair loss may simply be a reaction to a short-term event such as stress, pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, certain medications or lifestyle factors can cause a change in the hair growth and shedding phases. Once the remedy to the cause is dealt with, hair goes back to their pattern of growth and shedding, and abnormal hair loss stops. In these situations, hair will grow back once the phase has passed.

Medical conditions involving hormonal imbalances

Androgen sensitivity (resulting in Androgenetic Alopecia)

Menopause

Thyroid disorders

PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

Lifestyle factors

Immune system irregularities (resulting in Alopecia Areata)

Physical and/or emotional stress (resulting in Telogen Effluvium)

Nutritional deficiencies (especially protein, iron, zinc or vitamin A)

Lack of sleep

Chemotherapy treatments (resulting in Anagen Effluvium)

Reactional Hair Loss

Physical or emotional stress can trigger hair loss whether people are going to lose hair or not. When stress causes hair loss in women who do not have hereditary hair loss, the effects are not usually permanent; but in women who have hereditary hair loss, stress can actually speed up the process. The stress experienced must be quite severe before it leads to hair loss. Examples of severe stress are death of a loved one, break up of marriage, strenuous sports, training, severe illness or drastic weight loss, surgeries and emotional stress. The body simply shuts down production of hair during periods of stress since it is not necessary for survival and instead devotes its energies towards repairing vital body structures. You may notice excessive hair shedding 4 weeks to 3 months after an illness, surgery, high fever or severe flu. These conditions cause hair to shift rapidly into a resting phase, meaning you will see less new hair growth. A normal amount of hair typically will appear after the growth phase resumes. This means that the total hair loss and re-growth cycle can last 6 months or possibly longer when induced by physical and emotional stress.

There are other health conditions which may go undetected that can contribute to hair loss. This includes anemia, low blood count and thyroid abnormalities. Both of these conditions can be detected by a simple, inexpensive blood tests.


Female pattern baldness affects many more women now.

Stressful lifestyles, the competitive need to prove one’s self, long work hours and bad diet have devastating effects on one’s body and usually shows itself in the hair cycle. Stress becomes a part of our daily life styles. The hair shaft provides very important clues to disorders such as congenital defects, external damage to the hair, general illness, and areas which may be developing baldness. Fungal infections of the scalp will often be detected at the hair shaft. Seborrheic dermatitis is a fluctuating complaint often aggravated by emotional stress. Unless the underlying cause is found and the problem treated, this can also contribute to hair loss.

If you are experiencing hair loss, have a hair analysis done to find out any nutritional deficiencies or toxic metal contamination. As hair is formed, available minerals and amino acids circulating in the blood are constituted in the hair. A hair analysis can therefore provide facts of your mineral status and pick up any exposure to toxic metals.

All forms of undereating, skipping meals, or eating only limited foods will lead to poor nutrition and eventually, to problems from protein, calorie, vitamin, or mineral deficiencies. Other symptoms include lack of energy and subsequent weakness, malnourishment of internal organs, skin problems, and hair loss. Severe weight loss in spite of regular eating may indicate an underlying medical condition and requires an evaluation by a doctor.

It's clear that a high-fat, meat-based diet raises testosterone levels, and that may adversely affect hair follicles. Eating low-fat foods will not stop hair loss, but it might slow it down.Get to the bottom of what's causing the loss of hair and then prescribe the appropriate action.

When hair loss is accompanied by internal heat symptoms such as dry skin, insomnia, red eyes, and irritability, it indicates yin deficiency—dehydration of blood and body fluids, hormone imbalance, or other causes. Blood-building herbs can have good effects when they nourish the source of the hair—blood, bone marrow, the liver and kidneys—especially combined with herbs that increase circulation in the head.

Types of female pattern baldness

Female Pattern Baldness: (medically known as Androgen Dependant Alopecia)

A condition where male hormones are believed to be the cause.

Women produce male hormones from the adrenal glands. As many women have a similar baldness pattern to men, they are said to have Androgen dependant Alopecia. Virilization (virilization means the biological development of sex differences, changes which make a male body different from a female body) can result in facial hairs, recession of the scalp hair and thinning on the top area of the scalp. This condition can also be caused by ovarian tumours. An excessive amount of androgens are produced giving rise to a masculinising effect. This can easily be corrected by medical treatment.

It is only when the scalp shows through on the top of the head that we really start to become concerned, usually at menopause. The hair loss has actually taken place over a long period, and the hair suddenly becomes more unmanageable. This can be avoided if the situation is halted when the problem starts.

Hair loss in females can begin as early as puberty. Although these changes are hormone dependant they should not be confused with development of pattern baldness. Hormonal imbalances can be the cause of noticeable thinning in teenagers. The rapid changes the body is undergoing from child to womanhood can play havoc with the hormonal system and in turn affect the hair growth system. If the hair loss were to continue or become excessive or diffuse, hormone levels should be checked. This is a very stressful time in a young girl’s life. Peer pressure and academic demands can lead to very high stress levels during the school and varsity years. Hair loss is common at this stage of a young girls life.

Diffuse Pattern Alopecia: is a type of hair loss most common in women. The hair tends to become thinner rather than making bald patches. One will not see a shiny patch without hair. It is more likely that every other hair is missing. This usually occurs across the top of the head and near the front (rarely on the sides.) This progressive hair loss can be either gradual or intermittent and you may notice hair becoming less manageable. 25% of Caucasian women who have reached their forties experience thinning and recession. The percentage increases as women head towards their fifties. 50% of fifty plus women have thinning hair. The degree of loss seldom reaches that of male pattern baldness.

Postpartum (Post pregnancy) Alopecia

Losing a lot of hair post-pregnancy is common. As the hormone levels are elaveted during pregnancy it prevents normal hairfall during that period. Once you have delivered your baby, it often happens that these hormonal changes are reversed and you start losing a lot of hair all of a sudden -- there's not much to do except wait it out. Many types of stress may drive the anagen hair follicles prematurely into the telogen phase, resulting in an increased shedding of club hairs. This “telogen effluvium” is the response of the hair follicle to altered physiological states such as pregnancy. This condition will usually manifest itself three to four months after childbirth. A difficult child birth or sleep deprivation can cause tremendous stress to the mother and emotional stress can alter the normal balance of amino acids and proteins necessary for normal hair growth. The amount of hair lost can depend on the severity of the stress and partly on the individual’s susceptibility to it. Don't panic, because your hair growth and hairfall patterns will eventually return to normal. If the hair loss shows no sign of letting up, however, you may want to consult a doctor.

Physical Stress: Telogen Effluvium.

Acute stress causes diffuse hair loss, of classical telogen effluvium type hair loss.

The stress can be the result of an acute illness, high fever, trauma, an accident or injury, or surgery, particularly when there is severe blood loss or shock. The stress causes a number of follicles to change suddenly from the anagen or growing stage into the telogen phase. Two to four months later, following the normal cyclic pattern, diffuse shedding of hair begins. The amount of hair loss varies, but hair loss will continue for six weeks even if stress does not continue. When diffuse hair loss arises as a result of prolonged stress, it is probably the increased production of the adrenal gland hormone. Physiological stress will register in the hypothalamus which in turn can bring about :

1) An increase in the production of adrenaline through its effect of stress on the sympathetic nervous system. In other words, the woman’s body increases the production of adrenal gland hormones. This causes diffuse hair loss.

2) An increase in the production of gluco-corticiods through its effect of stress on the pituitary glands. The increased production will raise women’s blood sugar level, hence leading to a diabetic state.

The body can usually cope adequately with short term stress, so that diffuse hair loss may be the result. Prolonged stress may prove too much , and ulcers and baldness can occur. Starting with small patches ( Alopecia Areata ) and eventually, if not treated as soon as it has started, can lead to (Alopecia Totalis) A visit to a physician is necessary to determine to the causative factor. Counselling is also advisable. Vitamin supplements containing high vitamin B -Complex, Vitamin Supplement which is included in the treatment for acute hair loss, can reverse the breakdown in the hair cycle and can help you to regain your hair. If this condition is not arrested it can lead to more trauma which in turn can lead to the immune system breaking down. This in turn can be the result of (Alopecia Universalis)

Thyroid problems, anaemia, the birth control pill, anti-cancer drugs, mechanical trauma, physiological and physical abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse, venereal diseases such as syphilis, endocrine dysfunction , emotional stress, physical stress, nutritional disorders are all contributing factors for hair loss.

Chemical Alopecia

Hair loss due to chemical abuse

Hair loss can be experienced by females due to wrong use of chemicals by salon operators. Unless the harshness of chemicals is properly understood, devastating consequences like root damage and hair breakage can occur. High pH alkaline products such as relaxers with a pH exceeding 15 can result in scalp burns which in turn can result in scarring alopecia. In some instances this can cause permanent damage, depending on the thickness of the lesions. Immediate treatment on the weeping scars can result in hair growth recovery.Some Anti-Dandruff Shampoos and Coal Tar healing products both contain an anti-fungal and antiseptic, plus healing properties especially formulated to assist in the minimising of scarring and infections.

Other forms of hair loss can be experienced through high volume peroxide which is sometimes used to bleach, highlight or 'lift' the hair colour. Permanent waving can also have damaging effects, especially if the perm lotion exceeds a pH of 9. (Recommended pH for hard to wave hair). The milder the lotion the kinder it is to the hair and scalp. Today's formulas are designed for hair to be permed with much lower pH levels.

Mechanical Alopecia

This is commonly caused through the use of hot curlers, hair which is pulled too tightly when setting with conventional curlers, as well as sleeping with curlers nightly to straighten the hair.

Hot combs and tongs cannot only burn the scalp but can cause hair loss. Braiding and extensions which weigh the hair down cause stress on the hair which will, in time, result in hair loss. It is important to note that when tying up children's hair it should not be pulled too tightly as this can result in the entire hair line receeding.
