Female Hair Loss — Hair Today Gone Tomorrow

When men lose their hair it is really a difficult thing for them to handle. For women, it’s totally a devastating experience. Female hair loss is known to create feelings of self doubt, because society believes a woman is not beautiful without a crown of rich luxuriant hair. So, when a woman begins to lose her hair, she begins to feel unattractive.The occurrence of hair loss in women is a lot higher than a most people think. A large number of women will experience hair loss at one time in their lives. For a lot of women, hair loss is simply marked by the thinning of their hair. In other situations, female hair loss is as a result of changes in a woman’s hormonal functions which actually occur in every woman at a certain stage in their lives. The two common examples are:

• Post partum hair loss• Post menopausal hair loss

About 50 percent of women suffer hair loss after menopause. The reason for this is, after menopause, many women produce less of the female hormone estrogen. Keep in mind that both men and women’s body’s produce the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone testosterone. What distinguishes men from women is women produce relatively more estrogen than testosterone while the opposite is true for men.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is produced as testosterone is metabolized. The current thinking within the scientific community is DHT has the effect of shrinking the hair follicle thus contributing to hair loss.

As women age, they typically produce less estrogen and as a result testosterone becomes more hormonally influential. Women in this group begin to experience a process of hair loss very similar to that of men.
