Hair loss in women, weíre finding out, is a larger problem than we knew before. This has necessitated more women to seek out hair loss treatment methods that work for them specifically. Itís no great surprise that society today puts a high value on appearance for women. Magazine covers assault us daily across the supermarket aisles, setting the beauty bar for women high. That fact that the gorgeous models are airbrushed, digitally sculpted and wearing hair extensions is lost on women as they stare at the covers wondering why they canít look like that.
Why is hair loss so devastating to women? Why is it so important that women find a hair loss treatment? One thing women particularly value is their hair. They style it, color it, and care for it. Romanticized by the generations, hair is referred to by phrases like "crowning glory", "mane" and "luxurious locks". Whether youíre a man or woman suffering from hair loss, hair frames our faces. But for women more than men, hair and gives them their sense of individuality and often defines them as women. So when a woman begins experiencing hair loss, the resulting impact on her self-esteem can be devastating. Now, not only can she not look like one of those women on the magazine covers, but her hair is actually falling out. That is not supposed to happen. Is it? Itís time to find a hair loss treatment that restores looks and feelings.
Surprisingly, studies show that 50% of all women will, at some point in their lives, experience thinning hair and one out of four women will experience hereditary hair loss, or female pattern baldness and will require a long-term hair loss treatment. Thatís an alarming statistic. In fact, female hair loss catches many women off guard. Even those women whoíve watched their motherís hair loss are surprised when it happens to them. Some women go into hiding and others despair that there is any hope out there on the horizon for their hair loss condition. Some use wigs and hair extensions to hide the hair loss, but itís important for women to uncover the underlying cause of their particular hair loss.
There are many causes of hair loss in women and not all of them are hereditary. Genetics certainly plays a part in female pattern baldness (which unlike male pattern baldness, tends to show up as thinness across the entire crown of the head). If your mother and grandmother both experienced female pattern baldness that required hair loss treatment, chances are you will, too. Women with fine hair, as opposed to thick or coarse hair, have a much higher risk of thinning hair later on.
Everyone loses or sheds hair normally, but when more than the normal amount sheds and refuses to regrow, it becomes noticeable. Hair miniaturizes or becomes weak and refuses to grow more than a few inches. Finally, it stops growing altogether. For some women, thin, weak hair is a chronic condition. For others, hair loss comes as something of an unpleasant surprise.
