Causes of Hair Loss in Women

As a practising Trichologist for 18 years now, I have seen Causes of Hair Loss in Women change and increase. It is simply scary how hair loss and hair thinning has increased particularly in young women. The toxins we have already discussed are putting a strain on the immune system and add to that synthetic hormones in a state of low iron, low ferritin and low vitamin D, it’s a recipe for hair loss problems and other health problems and are now common Causes of Hair Loss in Women.

Here we share Miss J’s results, she is only 24 years old and had visible hair thinning. She shared she has always had thin hair since she was a child but it had changed over the last four years and was much thinner than it had ever been. Trichology Consultation found there was a family history of female pattern thinning and she had used the birth control pill since she was 16 with prescription changes because of associated weigh gain. Current blood tests showed low iron and ferritin on top of a vitamin D deficiency.

Hair Health Check Microscopic examination found common Causes of Hair Loss in Women:

  • Hair cycle concerns
  • Diffuse hair thinning from the past as hairs were not growing properly
  • 16 diffuse damaged hairs/cm in terminal area well away from the pattern thinning area
  • 6 translucent hairs/cm in terminal area that are invisible without a microscope
  • Female pattern thinning
  • Empty follicles and vellus hairs
  • Scalp oil and poor scalp circulation

All the symptoms found with the microscope made sense and are consistent with someone who has had diffuse hair loss from starting/stopping/changing birth control or from low iron or low ferritin, so because there was a few things going on the hair had not grown back to its genetic hair type and the scalp environment had changed.

We went in with combination therapy hair loss treatments addressing all Causes of Hair Loss in Women and the symptoms for 4 months to deliver this impressive result. One has to understand here that there is a lot going on and the first 4 months are the hardest but certain will show you positive hair growth then we help to continue with simple maintenance hair loss treatments.
