Most women will probably admit, they are, in some ways, emotionally attached to their hair. Many women grew up grooming and styling her dolls’ hair to stimulate her imaginative mind, as a child. Spending hours of their lives in the mirror to be sure all strands of hair are perfectly dressed. A lot of their self-esteem lies within the strains of her hair. It’s no wonder why hair loss has a more significant impact on women.
What are the ways women lose hair?
Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) is a female pattern hair loss. During menopause is when most women will experience hair loss. Women will likely notice thinning in the frontal area first. Gradually over time, the scalp will begin to be more visible. Medication, medical conditions, genetics, and stress are likely the reasons a woman may suffer from androgenetic alopecia.
Are there treatments available to women?
One of the most popular medications that will treat women’s hair loss is minoxidil.
Minoxidil is better known as Rogaine®. Applied directly on that scalp, it can stimulate hair growth. With at least two months of usage, patients may begin seeing results. Though it’s powerful, it’s not a “quick fix” treatment. It needs continuous use; otherwise, the hair will start to thin again.
Are there any more solid treatments?
Hair transplantation is the most reliable way to treat female hair loss. Though there are ways to treat hair loss in women, nothing has proven to have lasting results like hair transplants.
