HAIR LOSS CAUSES & Conditions

Women’s Hair Loss

Knowledge is power. Learning about hair loss is the first step to finding a solution.

For informational purposes only. The exact cause of hair loss can only be determined by a medical professional.

1 in 5

Americans are losing their hair.

40%

of women experience hair loss by age 40.

29%

of women with hair loss reported symptoms of depression.

Other Contributing Factors

Age

Aging can cause hair to thin. Over time, an increased number of hairs transition into the resting phase of hair growth while remaining hairs become shorter and thinner. This process is called involutional alopecia.

Chemical Hair Treatments

The chemicals used in coloring, perms, and relaxers can damage your hair and cause it to break, leading to an overall appearance of thinning.

Diseases

Numerous medical conditions can cause hair loss, including thyroid disease and autoimmune diseases such as lupus.

Cancer Treatment

Some chemotherapies and radiation therapies can cause your hair to fall out.

Conditions and Disorders

There are several conditions and disorders that lead to hair loss, including trichotillomania and alopecia areata.

Harsh styling practices

Frequent use of heat styling tools such as blow dryers, curling irons and straighteners, can damage your hair. Even wearing tight styles like ponytails, braids or buns for extended periods of time can cause hair loss.

Changes in Hormone levels

Childbirth and menopause are common causes of hair loss due to hormone imbalances surrounding these events.

Diet and nutrition

A lack of protein and iron in your diet can contribute to hair loss, as can eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia.

Prescription drugs

Certain medications can trigger hair loss, including blood thinners, birth control, and medicines for heart problems, blood pressure, and depression.

GRADE

1

This type of hair loss is characterized as minimal thinning. Hair loss at this stage can be so mild that it goes unnoticed. Typically, the hair becomes thinner in appearance, but the front hairline does not recede. However, those with Grade 1 hair loss will not experience a receding hairline.

GRADE

2

At this moderate stage, women may notice decreased volume and a widening of their part. More of the scalp can become visible, and women may see an increase in hair shedding.

GRADE

3

Often described as diffuse thinning, this grade of hair loss creates a see-through appearance on the top of the scalp. This is the most severe type of hair loss for women.
