Many people think that women lose their hair the same way men do, just not as often. The truth is that men and women experience hair loss for very different reasons, and that female hair loss is caused by a wider variety of factors.
Most men who experience hair loss usually suffer from male pattern baldness, a genetic condition that appears as early as the teenage years or early 20s. Signs of male pattern baldness include a receding hairline at the temples and thinning at the top or crown of the head, which can eventually result in baldness.
Female hair loss occasionally follows a similar pattern, but can also be caused by many other factors ranging from hormonal imbalances to compulsive hair-pulling to side effects from medication. It usually consists of a more diffuse, overall thinning of the hair, leading to increased scalp exposure.
Hair Club® understands these differences, and designs female hair loss treatments and programs specifically for the unique needs of women.
