It may surprise you that out of all hair loss suffers 40 percent of them are women. Women rarely opt to shave the head like some men with hair loss do like actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Women just suffer from widening hair parts and thin limp hair that just zaps away their self-confidence.
With more knowledge on the cause of hair loss and the options available that can restore their hair hopefully women will find comfort in knowing they are not alone and there is hope.
There are several causes of female hair loss. It could be genetic and you simply carry a gene that will cause you to have hair loss. While other causes could come from stress, eating disorders, medication, and others.
This year has been anything but normal and the Covid-19 virus has presented physical and mental side effects whether you contract the coronavirus or not. The covid-19 virus has caused stress levels to be at an all-time high. As a result of this more women are experiencing stress-related hair loss or telogen effluvium which means temporary hair loss condition. Many are feeling the stress from the mandated life changes that occurred as a result of the global pandemic including work from home, quarantining alone, quarantining with family, fear of the unknown, etc.” It can take four to six months to cycle back to the normal growth phase after the cause of the severe stress has subsided.
If your hair loss is more genetic and not just from stress-related issues then you could have alopecia areata, chemotherapy treatments, trichotillomania, and even menopause can result in female hair loss. Female pattern baldness is the most prevalent cause of progressive hair loss in women. The symptoms are often seen as a widening part and thinning crown. This permanent form of hair loss can be disheartening and stressful in it own right. Stressors here are not the cause of hair loss.
