Hair Loss Treatments for Women

Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women:


Women can experience hereditary hair loss. Androgenic alopecia, often referred to as female pattern baldness, typically manifests as diffuse thinning on the crown of the head.

Hormonal Changes

Fluctuations in hormones can play a significant role in hair loss. Events such as pregnancy, childbirth and menopause can lead to hormonal imbalances that affect hair growth.

Nutritional Deficiencies

Poor diet, crash diets, or inadequate intake of essential nutrients can contribute to hair thinning and loss. Nutrients like iron, biotin, and zinc are crucial for healthy hair growth.

Medical Conditions

Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases, and scalp infections, can cause hair loss in women. Managing these underlying health issues is essential for addressing hair loss.


Emotional stress or trauma can lead to a condition called telogen effluvium, where hair follicles enter a resting phase, resulting in noticeable hair shedding. 

Hairstyles & Treatments

Frequent use of tight hairstyles (like braids or ponytails) and harsh hair treatments (such as perms or chemical straighteners) can damage hair follicles, leading to hair loss over time.
