How to Recognize Female Hair Loss

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 199

Female hair loss is observed in several patterns. If you are a female and you think you are affected by women pattern baldness, you must consult with a qualified hair restoration specialist. Most cases of baldness in women can be treated effectively. However, most women who are starting to loss their mane are surprised by the condition and do not know why they are losing their locks.

Female hair loss is not recognized as easily as in men. Unlike male baldness, women pattern baldness usually occur at the age of around 50 years old and above and may not have a clear association with heredity. Usually, a woman who first begins to notice baldness is unsure if the condition is permanent or temporary, especially if there is an event recently, such as illness or pregnancy that is associated with temporary female baldness.

How Hair Grows

The best way to picture how your tresses grow is to think about a garden. The health of your mane depends entirely on the events that are happening "underground". As with a garden, the normal growth cycle should result to a product, which is hair. The growth cycle of your locks is very important since if it goes askew, it becomes one of the main reasons why baldness occurs. In addition, things that interfere with the growth cycle of their tresses, such as illness, medication, chemicals or infection can potentially prevent hair from forming properly.

Determining Female Hair Loss

The American Academy of Dermatology stated that majority of people lose from 50 to 100 strands every day. When you wash your locks, you can lose as many as 250 strands. However, do not avoid washing your hair to prevent female baldness as it will eventually fall out anyway.

If you do not intend to count your hair every day, there are means of knowing when your hair is starting to thin out or being lost at faster rate. You can easily observe the difference. When you wake up in the morning, you may see an unusually large amount of hair in your pillow. When you are combing your hair, you will see more than the normal amount of hair in the comb, especially if you are not tugging, which could pull hair out.

You will also notice other visual cues over time. In men, the hair tends to thin out from the crown of the head or forehead. In women though, thinning tends to occur on the top one third or one half of scalp. In some instances, the frontal line remains intact but you may see more of your scalp when you pull your hair back.
