The How and Why – Understanding Female Hair Loss
Typically, the first sign of female hair loss is the widening of the hair part on the top of the head, also known as the “Christmas tree effect.” For women this commonly occurs on the top of the scalp, temples, and sides. This pattern is usually the first sign of a woman who is suffering female pattern hair loss due to the conversion of the hormone Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is hormone known to constrict the blood flow to hair, causing hair shafts to miniaturize, follicles to dry, and hair will eventually stop growing. DHT also causes inflammation in the scalp causing a tenderness and itchiness.
Women often believe their hair loss is a result of a health issue such as Thyroid, stress, or pregnancy. Those are often factors that attribute to genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia). Before when the only option was to conceal and camouflage female hair loss there are now treatment options guaranteed to stop hair loss and stimulate hair regrowth. Cutting-edge hair loss solutions include laser therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
