A woman’s body is different than a man’s body and hair loss or thinning hair is not all a man’s thing. Women are also suffering of hair loss and other related problems. Hair loss or thin hair is not only a health problem, but it has also a serious psychological ans social impact. Usually people who suffer from hair loss experience also low moral during social gatherings, especially if they are very young and even more if they are women. There are several causes of hair loss in women.
Here is a quick list:
Bad Hair Styles: hair styling including different hair gels, hair sprays, colors, trimming and straightening brushes and flat irons are very damaging for the hair. Those chemicals and heat treatments make hair weak and gradually lead to its loss. Extreme heat and straightening can cause hair fall due to breakage and cuticle damage.
Using the Wrong Hair Care Products: some hair care products including shampoos and conditioners, some even designed for preventing and treating hair loss are using harsh chemicals that can worsen the hair condition and cause significant and long term damage. It is very important to read the product label carefully before using the product. If you have any allergic problem, consult your doctor before using any new hair care product.

Anemia: many young and adult women suffer from hair loss due to anemia. There are many types of anemia and its most well known forms are iron deficiency anemia or vitamin B-12 deficiency. It is usually defined as a decrease in the total amount of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood. As a result of this – blood can’t deliver oxygen to hair follicles and it leads to hair breaking easily.
Menopause: menopause is a crucial moment for every middle aged woman. When a woman hits menopause, estrogen hormone level decreases significantly and this has a great impact on a woman’s body and mind. Reduced levels of estrogen can cause hair to dry and will tend to break quickly.
Protein Deficiency could also be one of the causes of hair loss in women.Human cells growth depends mainly on protein and hair is no exception. Protein deficiency can cause hair loss, thinning hair or low hair growth rate. The reason is that hair is made of keratin (a form of protein) and lack of protein can cause a serious impact.
Medication: some affections like Polycystic ovarian syndrome and its medication cause hair loss. Additionally, oral contraceptives can cause hair loss or thin hair. Other hormonal pills sometimes have similar side effects.
Thyroid Disease/ Autoimmune Disease: Thyroid gland is responsible for releasing and maintaining the level of triiodothyronine and thyroxine hormones. These two hormones are equally responsible for human’s body growth. Hyper and hypothyroidism, both cause poor hair condition. In that case, proper treatment is highly recommended. On the other hand, during autoimmune disease, human body creates antibodies against its own cell and attack hair. In both cases medical consultation is a MUST.
Pregnancy is one of the common causes of hair loss in women. Again, it is a game of hormones, but fortunately this is a temporary issue, as the affection is caused by a sudden decrease in estrogen hormone after giving birth. Read more about Hair loss after childbirth.
