Why Do Women Lose Their Hair?

Both women and men experience hair loss.

Sadly, for women, the stigma associated with thinning or balding crowns is far worse than it can be for men. Losing hair for women can seriously affect their self-esteem, lead to depression, and, in some cases, make the hair loss worse.

It can be beneficial to understand the reason you might be losing your hair. There might be an underlying medical condition that needs attention.

Let’s look at some causes of hair loss for women, according to the Mayo Clinic:

Medications (including supplements): Hair loss is a side effect of many drugs, medications, and vitamin or dietary supplements. Chemotherapy is one medical treatment that causes hair loss. Radiation to the head can also result in hair loss.

Talk to your doctor or health-care practitioner right away, about any drugs and supplements you take and whether you can expect hair loss to be a side effect.

Hairstyles and hair products: The pulling and extreme heat that accompany many hairstyles can result in hair loss for many women. Excessive heat can cause hair to break and thin. Braids, cornrows, pigtails, and ponytails can all result in traction alopecia.

Hair “care” products, including hair dyes, oils, bleaches, and chemicals, can also cause hair to fall out, sometimes scarring the scalp in the process.

Hormonal changes: Hormones can wreak havoc on a woman’s hair, regardless of her age. Teenagers and menopausal women alike can experience hair changes because of their hormones. Menopause, pregnancy, childbirth, and birth control pills can cause temporary hair loss or thinning.

Medical conditions: Hair loss in women can also result from underlying medical problems. Hair loss is often an indication of a thyroid problem. Alopecia areata is another common medical cause of hair loss. Women may also lose hair because of vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition due to medical conditions.

Stress or trauma: A particularly stressful event or trauma often results in hair thinning for weeks and sometimes months. This kind of hair loss is usually only temporary, but it is no less upsetting.

Unfortunately, the stress of losing your hair can compound the problem.

Family history: Hair loss is also hereditary. Female and male pattern baldness are part of aging, usually following in the footsteps of our parents.

This list includes several of the most common causes of hair loss, but the list is not comprehensive. There are risk factors that also affect your chances of losing your hair. There are even steps you can take to minimize some risks. You might also be able to prevent some types of hair loss with extra care and attention. Speak to a trusted medical professional if you suspect that your hair loss may be due to any of the above reasons.
