Female hair loss can be caused by a number of conditions and different factors and one of the most common is Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) or Androgenetic Alopecia.
FPHL – is a hereditary condition that causes thinning and hair loss most commonly on the top of the head and crown area.
Traction Alopecia – is caused by excessive or continued tension on the shafts of the hair. It can be caused from overuse or incorrectly fitted hair extensions, weaves or braids.
Alopecia Areata – causes hair loss in patches which are often circular in shape. This is related to stress & shock.
Telogen Effluvium – is related to shock and/or trauma and due to the natural hair cycle will occur approximately 3 months after the traumatic event. It is usually a temporary hair loss condition, but as hair grows on average 1 inch in 4 months, it can feel like an eternaty before your full length returns.
Trichotillomania – is a condition that is self-inflicted by the sufferer by twisting, tugging and pulling their own hair until it comes out.
