Womens hair loss
The following are the most common causes of temporary hair loss in women:
- Starting or stopping birth control.
- Pregnancy and the postpartum period.
- Changes in hormone levels or thyroid imbalances.
- Traumatic events such as the loss of a family member.
- Crash dieting, chronic nutritional deprivation, alcoholism, zinc or iron deficiency. Systemic Illness: Conditions such as Crohn’s or hepatic disease, syphilis, lymphoproliferative disorders and inflammatory bowel disease.
- Medications: A large number of drugs have been reported to cause, or possibly cause, diffuse alopecia.
- Age: Hair loss in women, as in men, can simply occur as part of the normal ageing process.
I’m 22, and I used to be one of those guys who never had the same haircut. From crew-cuts to long fringes and your typical punk-rock long hair, I went through every phase. My hair used to be thick and when I started to lose hair it actually really affected me and I would always feel really conscious. Two months into the treatment and people started to notice a difference. My hair was healthier and stronger and I wouldn’t lose hair every time I showered anymore. 3 months in and I am so happy with having my hair back. I’m stoked with my results.
I feel so confident about my hair, I don’t feel like I need to cover up or explain that I have a hair-loss condition. It actually does change your confidence levels and it’s so great to start to feel positive about your hair. It feels great to be able to run some product through my hair and style it to what I want it to look like. You really don’t realise how much something is worth until you lose it. But you also learn to appreciate it so much more when you get it back! Thanks to the guys at Innovative for everything.
