Hairlos and thinning hair for women

Hairloss and thinning hair for women.

Hairloss, thinning hair and baldness; it doesn't just happen to the man. After the fortieth year of life, 40% of all women start to thin their hair. This can take a toll on self-confidence, as hair is an important part of appearance.

Causes of hair loss

Extreme stress can lead to excessive hair loss. For example, a delivery, illness, or surgery can cause your body to shed a lot of hair temporarily. But heredity also plays a major role.


Androgenetic alopecia

Hair loss in women due to androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss) is the most common cause of hair loss in women. It is a process that is set in motion by, among other things, age and hormone balance. In women, normal or classic baldness (androgenetic alopecia) is mainly manifested by an increasingly transparent and widening divorce. The hairs behind the hairline get thinner and the scalp shines through. Often the process starts with menopause, but nowadays it is also increasingly common in young women.

Cause of hereditary baldness

Hereditary baldness is caused by the sensitivity of certain hair follicles to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This DHT is formed from the hormone testosterone under the influence of an enzyme (5-alpha-reductase, types I and II). The DHT binds to the androgen receptor (a 'biological magnet') of the hair follicle, which makes it less well supplied with blood. As a result, the growth phase of the hair shortens from three to five years to just a few months and the hair root follicle dies faster. If this process occurs in many hair follicles, the head of hair will become thinner and baldness will eventually occur. The number of androgen receptors a person has is genetically determined and that partly explains why some people do and others do not become bald.

However, complete baldness is rare in women!


One of the applied treatment is to administer a lotion that protects the hair follicles against DHT. This way, hair loss can be stopped. As long as the lotion is used, the hair loss will stop. If the lotion is stopped, the hair loss will continue after some time.

Hair loss due to stress (Telogen Effluvium)

Physical or psychological stress, such as high fever, infections, anemia, surgery, accident, emotional problems, strict diet and alcohol abuse, can cause this form of hair loss. Many women have to deal with telogen effluvium after giving birth. The hair root stops growing and retreats more quickly in the resting phase of the hair growth cycle. The hairs fall out more and more easily than "normal" when brushing or, for example, when the hands are run through the hair. Fortunately, the hairs usually grow back after about six months. In some cases there is a chronic form of telogen effluvium and the excessive hair loss in women lasts for many months to even years. If you lose more than the average 100 hairs per day, you may be dealing with telogen effluvium. A healthy diet with a healthy lifestyle (balance in work and rest), possibly combined with hair-related nutritional supplements is extra important.

Other causes of hair loss:

• baldness in the front hairline (frontal fibrosing alopecia)

• Lichen planopilaris (inflamed hair follicles with scarring)

• patchy baldness (alopecia areata)
