It is not always as simple as pointing to genetics when determining the cause of hair loss in women.

Sara Gottfriend, M.D., a practicing integrative physician and contributor to the The Blog at HuffingtonPost.com, published in the Huffington Post this week her tips and strategies to help women combat their hair loss. Gottfried was experiencing hair loss and stated that "hair loss is a major sign that something is awry." In the Huffington Post blog, she mentions there are many varying factors that can cause hormonal imbalances and cause hair loss in women.

"There's a strange bias that doctors have around women and hair loss -- that we're being vain. It turns out that it's not vanity, it's sanity. Hair loss is a major sign that something is awry," Gottfried said in the post.

Of the tips, she recommended getting your thyroid tested, losing weight, eating fiber and exercising to name a few.

Hair Transplant clinic Beverly Hills Hair Restoration in Los Angeles and Medical Director Dr. John Kahen, M.D. stress these similar strategies and tactics for female patients experiencing hair loss - especially when seeking both causes and treatment options.

"It's not always genetics that are causing the hair loss for a woman and it's important to educate them on what the causes are and treatments," says the doctor.

The Los Angeles hair transplant clinic says not every person experiencing hair loss is a candidate for hair transplant surgery. This makes it very important for the doctor to assess the patient during the consultation process to determine what the cause is first before deciding on what the best hair loss treatment will be to combat it.
