Causes of Hair Loss in Women

For a woman, losing your hair can be particularly difficult, especially with the social stigma surrounding females going bald. However, female hair loss is actually quite common, with around 50% of women over the age of 64 experiencing female-pattern hair loss / baldness.

Reasons for hair loss in women:

  • Ageing
  • Changes in the levels of androgens (male hormones) e.g. after reaching menopause, many women find their hair thinning
  • Family history of female or male pattern baldness
  • A result of extreme physical and/or mental stress
  • 50% of women lose more hair than usual after giving birth
  • A side effect of chemotherapy or major surgery

Female pattern hair loss can be identified with hair thinning on the top and crown of the scalp, which usually begins with a widening of the centre parting. This is caused by the hair follicles gradually getting smaller and finer until the hair stops growing altogether.
