It should not come as a surprise anymore that there is such a thing as women's hair loss. Recent research and observation has proven that men are not the only ones who experience more visible scalps. The question is whether this condition in ladies is something to worry over.
Hair fall in both genders is obviously no laughing matter. It can be a tough ordinal to have to gradually witness changes in your once thick and beautiful locks. The adjustment after the change can even be more difficult. Losing so much can change your looks and can make you wonder if people's opinions of you are changing too.
In most cases though, society has been more accepting of the condition in males. Females sometimes have to face a different story. They are often expected to have longer, thicker and fuller tresses. This is why it can still sometimes shock people when they are told that hair falling is a reality for both sexes.
Despite common views though, the condition in ladies should not cause too much anxiety. Sometimes, the condition is simply caused by a primary physical concern such as severe illness or stress. Once these primary problems are resolved, hair can regenerate and return to its normal appearance.
More serious women's hair loss can happen due to hormonal changes. There may be times in a female's life when estrogen levels drop such as after pregnancy or during menopause. When this happens, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which is responsible for hair loss is able to negatively act unchecked on hair follicles. In this scenario, hair shedding may be more prolonged.
Even when hormones are involved though, there is no use worrying. Hardly any solution exists that can dramatically reverse this kind of condition. Even medication specifically indicated for women can only promote limited growth that will be cut short after medication is stopped. Other products that advertise themselves as solutions can be supplements at best and scam products at worst.
This is not to say that no one should scout for possible solutions to women's hair loss. This is simply to say that too much time may be wasted on worrying over something that no miracle of science can cure yet. The best step to take is to simply make sure that you are taking good care of your health and well being.
