Women’s Hair Loss
Welcome to the Guide to Women’s Hair Loss. There are four steps in this guide, the last of which will provide you with treatments to begin as soon as you’re ready. We don’t carry nor create our own products. We just point you to the most scientifically backed options available. Let’s get started.
If you are experiencing any form of patchy hair loss or total loss of hair on your head, or other parts of your body, this guide is not for you. Please visit our “Guide to the Alopecias” for information custom tailored to your needs.
When you hear about a new treatment – the only thing that matters is the ingredients. And the data supporting them. Always get the ingredients list, and question whether there are studies supporting them. Since you probably aren’t a scientist, we’ve done the work for you. We only present the treatments that have clinical backing or scientific proof. And if you choose, you can even get them in our Product Center.
Here’s the general rule: hair can be thickened anywhere it’s still growing. Therefore a hair loss treatment regimen is worth pursuing for all types of hair loss. Hair Transplants can be considered if you have tried a hair loss treatment regimen for a solid 2 years without results. The real challenge is deciding which treatments will best meet your needs, and optimize your chances for success. First, we will cover the causes, and types of hair loss. Then we will present product comparisons and reviews, to help you make a decision.
It is unfortunate but true that Physicians these days seem to have less and less education on many conditions, and being proactive on behalf of your own health is imperative to getting good treatment. The average doctor knows little about men’s hair loss, let alone women’s, which is far more complex.
In the next few pages, we will arm you with knowledge. It will be your job to discuss this information with your physician and get the care you need. Expect to hit some roadblocks along the way however, as this is the sad state of our medical system today. The physician fully educated in women’s hair loss will undoubtedly agree with anything you find here.
The most common causes of hair loss in women are hormonally related. Whether it be an overactive thyroid, or the after effects of menopause or pregnancy, there usually is a “good” reason why women lose their hair. The key is to find out what the reason is, and to then evaluate your options in dealing with it. If and when this is not possible, we will give you the steps on how to proceed. First things first though, let’s find out how to help your doctor diagnose your condition.
