How to stop hair loss & grow back hair for women:
This is where I talk about the main reasons and causes for female hair loss & hair thinning in women, and exactly what you can do to reverse, treat & even prevent them.
0:02 The following are the 7 MAIN causes for Hair Loss in women along with their symptoms so that you can easily identify them.
0:27 1. Hereditary hair loss. The most common cause of hair loss in women is what we call Androgenetic Alopecia, also called Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL). This is an inherited condition in which you have certain genes which makes your hair susceptible to hair loss when exposed to the normal, small amount of androgens (male hormones) which all women have. This gene can be inherited from either your mother or father’s side of the family, though you’re more likely to have it if both of your parents had hair loss.
1:39 Androgenic alopecia affects 40% of women at some point in their lifetime. The symptoms: It normally starts over the top of your scalp, or starts thinning behind your bangs.
1:56 2. Telogen effluvium is a phenomenon that occurs due to emotional or physiological stress such as eating disorders, fever, childbirth, chronic illness, major surgery, anemia, severe emotional disorders, crash diets, hypothyroidism, and drugs.
2:33 The symptoms: Women with telogen effluvium typically notice hair loss 6 weeks to 3 months after a stressful event. Look for small “club-shaped” bulbs on the fallen hair’s roots. The bulbs mean the hair has gone through a complete cycle of growth, suggesting that the cycle may have sped up due to stress.
3:10 3. Alopecia areata (AA) is a condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from the scalp. Because it causes bald spots on the scalp, especially in the first stages, it is sometimes called spot baldness. The symptom: This is the easiest to identify. Which is when you see large chunks of bald spots on your head.
3:44 4. Skin Conditions on your Scalp. An unhealthy scalp can cause inflammation that makes it problematic for hair to grow. Skin conditions that lead to hair loss include dandruff, psoriasis, and fungal infections such as ringworm. The symptoms: Dandruff causes the scalp to shed its skin, so you’ll notice greasy, yellowish scales on your shoulders or in your hair. It may be the result of yeast called Malassezia, hormonal changes, or excess oil in the skin.
4:26 5. Over-Styling. Too much shampooing, styling, and dyeing can harm your tresses. Heat and chemicals weaken the hair, causing it to break and fall out. Often, it’s a combination of treatments of keratin, coloring, and blow-drying, for instance that does the damage. The symptoms: If the fallout is occurring from external damage caused by styling, it will simply break, and you won’t see those club-shaped telogen bulbs at the ends.
5:06 6. Hypothyroidism. Millions of people, most of them women, suffer from thyroid disease. When your body produces too little thyroid hormone; the hormone responsible for metabolism, heart rate, and mood, you are said to have hypothyroidism, or an UNDERACTIVE thyroid. If your body makes too much of the hormone, youíre said to have hyperthyroidism, or an OVERACTIVE thyroid.
5:36 Thyroid hormone is responsible for everything from your basal metabolic rate and the rate at which your body uses oxygen and energy to function ó to the growth of your hair, skin, and nails.
6:00 The symptoms: Hypothyroidism (too little hormone) may cause a host of symptoms, including unexplained weight gain, fatigue, constipation, depression, and difficulty concentrating. Hair, nails, and skin may become more brittle and break more easily. Itís more common in
7.00 Lupus. Lupus is a chronic auto-immune disease in which the bodyís own immune system attacks healthy tissues. The condition mostly affects women during their childbearing years. The symptoms: Lupus often causes extreme fatigue, headaches, oral ulcers, and painful, swollen joints. Many people develop a butterfly-shaped rash across the bridge of the nose and become more sensitive to the sun. Other symptoms include fever; swelling in the feet and hands and around the eyes; chest pain; and anemia.
7:35 Symptoms: Joints and other tissues shows signs of inflammation, such as heat, pain, swelling, and redness.
