Millions of women are suffering from some sort of hair loss. According to the American Hair Loss Association, females make up 40% of Americans experiencing the condition and the AHLA states the diagnosis for female hair loss is not always as straightforward compared to men. This is because there are varying factors, both genetic and nongenetic, causing the condition. Some are obvious and some are "hidden" and may not be genetic, says Beverly Hills Hair Restoration. The hair transplant clinic offers these hidden causes of hair loss in women that they should consider when searching for a diagnosis and treatment - these include illnesses, hormonal changes, poor nutrition and even stress.
1. Disease and Illness
One can experience hair loss after an illness, a serious surgery or a psychologist disorder such as Trichotillomania. Hidden diseases can sometimes cause female hair loss such as lupus, diabetes or a thyroid condition.
2. Hormonal Changes
Hormonal imbalances have affects on the body physically, including hair loss. An overactive or under active thyroid from thyroid disease may change hormonal levels in the body, and in turn can cause hair loss as well.
3. Nutritional Deficiencies
Malnourishment and iron or protein deficiencies can sometimes trigger symptoms of hair loss. Crash or fad diets may also have an effect on hair health for women.
Abnormal levels of stress can negatively affect the whole body and women are sometimes more sensitive to high levels of stress compared to men. Stress-induced hair loss, called telogen effluvium, involves hair shedding when stress alters the normal hair cycle, resulting in the hairs shifting to the telogen (resting) face of the hair growth cycle.
