Having voluminous, healthy hair is usually a goal for the majority of women, so noticing a progresive hair loss or thinning can be shocking or concerning for many aesthetic and emotional reasons.

Common causes of female pattern baldness are:

  • Hormonal imbalances. Unlike men, female alopecia does not progress as much, although a low estrogen can lead to similar symptoms to the androgenic alopecia, which occurs when there is a more significant presence of androgen hormones. Menopause is one of the main factors for this to originate.
  • Telogen effluvium: This is a form of temporary hair loss that usually originated after stress, depression, or poor nutrition. It can also be produced by certain medications and chronic diseases, such as autoimmune pathologies and diabetes. With the proper treatment, this type of hair loss can be completely reversed.
  • Lupus. With a higher presence in women than in men (4 to 12 female individuals per male), this chronic and incurable disease is one of the leading causes of female baldness due to inflammation, lesions, and the consumption of medications used to treat it.
  • Traction alopecia. This type of hair loss is caused by repeated tension or pulling, for example, when women constantly use high and tight ponytails, buns or braids.

Whatever reason you’re losing hair, HairFix can help. Remember that the correct diagnosis is essential for proper treatment. Contact us and let us evaluate your situation at no cost!
