For years, hair loss was wrongly thought to be a disease that only affected men. Today we know that many women, as many as 40% in fact, also experience it, yet it is rarely discussed. As with many conditions, there are both similarities and differences when it comes to male and female hair loss.
We know why you are here. We know what you are going through. We know it’s hard and we want to help. Female hair loss is not uncommon, contrary to popular belief. Women make up a whopping 40% of hair loss sufferers and truthfully, those are just the cases that are known. Many women are suffering alone without seeking support due to the emotional shock, embarrassment and stress related with female hair loss. We want to change that.
Is female hair loss rare? According to the American Association of Dermatologist (AAD) hair loss for women is common. Hereditary hair loss affects 30 million American women and women make up nearly half of hair loss sufferers.
What is a normal amount of hair loss for women? The average person, female or male, loses 50 to 100 hairs per day. If you suspect you are losing more than the average, take note of the amount of hair shedding on your pillow in the morning, your brush after combing your hair and drain after showering. It is important to seek medical attention for guidance and diagnosis if you notice anything out of the normal.
What are the leading causes of hair loss? One leading cause is a hereditary condition known as andrognetic alopecia. Many women experience this type of hair thinning with age, but it can happen at any time. Other causes of female hair loss are medical conditions, stress and even weight loss. There is a vast range of medical conditions that can contribute to hair loss, from pregnancy to thyroid disorders. It is important to consult with your doctor at the first onset of hair loss for these reasons.
Is it normal to not feel like myself? In quality-of-life studies, women experiencing hair loss reported a higher incidence of behavior that interfered with their daily lives — including a significant loss of self-esteem, being introverted, feeling less attractive and tense feelings in public places.
