Practical and effective tips for addressing female hair loss featured on Losing Her Hair Website
Springfield, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2013 -- A condition often attributed to men, the American Academy of Dermatology has just revealed that hair loss is now extremely common in women too. Roughly 40 percent of women are reported to have experienced hair loss, with majority of them failing to seek proper medical attention for the condition.
Normally, a person sheds 100 hair strands per day any more than this is abnormal. Women, especially, will first notice signs of hair thinning when they start to see an increased amount of hair falling out in the shower or as they brush their hair. If left untreated, this can cause noticeable hair thinning and undeniable bald spots.
"Hair loss makes women more vulnerable not just physically, but also psychologically. Almost all of those that we have talked to admitted to having experienced higher stress level and lower self-esteem because of the condition," said Jill Xiao of Losing Her Hair.
She added that due to the tremendous costs involved in treating hair loss, most women resort to home remedies, or simply live with the condition.
Unlike male pattern baldness, a majority of the cases in women are not hereditary. Furthermore, studies suggest that treatment for hair loss in women is highly dependent on what caused the condition, noting that there are certain cases where home remedies do not work.
Some of the identified causes of hair loss are hair styling, medications, and hormonal imbalance as a result of pregnancy. Stress is also believed to contribute to hair thinning amongst women. Another direct link to hair loss is signs of a nutritional deficiency, this makes the hair follicles brittle and they will eventually fall out.
'"Women fail to recognize the impacts of their lifestyle choices on their hair's health until they begin to see for themselves the female hair loss symptoms," said Xiao.
She further pointed out how some women tend to ignore the early symptoms of hair loss, and, only start to worry once the bald spots become very visible. Home remedies for hair loss are known to work best when the condition is still in its early stage, Xiao said.
Medical experts recommend an early diagnosis of hair loss, stressing that the condition can also be a manifestation of more serious illnesses like thyroid disease, scalp infections, and alopecia areata. Failure to attend to the root causes of hair loss may lead to permanent hair thinning or bald spots.
On the Losing Her Hair website, Xiao details some of the do-it-yourself steps to prevent and stop thinning hair. Women will also understand hair loss better through the information resources available at www.losingherhair.com.
"Hair loss can leave a huge impact in every woman's life, but it would definitely help to be assured that they are not alone in what they are going through. That is exactly the goal of the Losing Her Hair website - to be every woman's partner in overcoming hair loss," said Xiao.
