When it comes to hair loss in women, or having thinning hair, this is one of the most devastating things a woman can go through. It can make someone feel very insecure about their appearance, they feel alone and no one can understand the pain they are feeling. Hair makes a woman feel confident and beautiful. Unfortunately, for some it can affect their social life, dating, work place, and much more. As someone like me who struggled with thin hair all my life, getting my dream hair was on my mind every single day. I know it may sound crazy, but every single day I struggled with my hair. The day I decided to make a change was the day I stopped worrying and became more confident than ever. If you or someone you know is struggling with hair loss, you are not alone! More women today are struggling than ever before! You don’t have to wear a hat, or avoid swimming because your hair looks thinner when it’s wet, or not go out on a windy day because it may mess-up your style you worked all morning or night to prefect. There are so many emotions a woman goes through when it comes to their hair. The great thing is you can change the way you feel about your hair!
Typical causes of women’s hair loss can vary from many different things due to Genetics, Alopecia Areata, Totalis and Universalis, Trichotillomania, Traction Alopecia, Chemical Damage, Stress, Hormonal abnormalities, poison to the follicle due to Chemotherapy, and Postpartum Alopecia. All these can affect the way your hair grows. Hair Club® offers 3 solutions which will be analyzed in your consultation. They will choose which method is best for you. Let me give you a brief description on a few of these hair loss causes to further educate you on hair loss.
Hair loss must be inherited by both your mother and father. The dominant trait can skip generations and siblings. Testosterone combines with another hormone called 5 Alpha Reductase; this produces a more aggressive hormone DHT. DHT attacks and shrinks the papilla, creating think looking hair even hair loss, this is caused by genetics. The papilla is located underneath our skin in the follicle of our hair, were we cannot see. Alopecia Aretata, Totalis and Universalis is an Autoimmune disorder, although not fully understood, what doctors have discovered is that the white blood cells attack the hair follicle, and cause all the hair in a certain area to fall out, and not regrow. Doctors have also found that a shock to the system, such as a viral or bacterial infection, or emotional stress can also trigger this.
Trichotillomania is a disorder that causes people to pull out their hair; eventually this can damage the follicle and in some cases not grow hair in that area anymore. These treatments can also help strengthen that area if they are not already damaged. Traction Alopecia is constant pulling, twisting, braiding and tight tension on the hair will eventually will damage the hair follicle causing it to stop producing hair. Chemical damage can come from improper color, perm, and chemical straightening application.
Stress can be caused by many different things, which can also trigger hair loss. Hormonal abnormalities can also cause hair loss due to your body changing, same thing as pregnancy. We all suffer from something we don’t like or agree with, when it comes to women’s hair we just want to look our best. We have women come in with all of these conditions plus more.
