When men begin to experience hair loss, it can be devastating to their emotions and self-esteem. But women's hair loss is equally traumatizing and even devastating. Actually, women's hair loss is a large issue worldwide. For women, and much moreso in Western countries, hair loss is extremely embarrassing and causes immense emotional pain. Our society places a premium on women having luxurious and beautiful hair, no matter how old or young they may be. The processes of balding and thinning are very difficult for a woman to cope with. The frequency of hair loss is the same for women and men. We'll now explore a few of the reasons for hair loss in women.

It may not be much of a surprise to know that some medications will directly cause women to lose their hair. Many people already are aware that chemotherapy spells hair loss in women. Others cause hair to fall out because of the way the medication interacts with a woman's body chemistry. In other cases, the hair will not always fall out. What happens is the hair growth is stopped, so it's not a case of falling out. But the net effect is the appearance of hair loss. So it will be very difficult to tell the difference if you don't know. Female hormones can cause this kind of situation, as well. When a woman's hormones get out of whack a number of things can happen. Things such as weight changes, or mood shifts, and of course changes in energy levels. Hair can be lost, get thin or it can stop growing altogether. If you feel fine or have noticed that you seem a little "off" and have noticed that your hair is getting a little bit thin, you should see your doctor. Of course tests can be performed on your chemistry, and then appropriate action can be taken.

For both men and women, there is a cycle type of pattern with the growth of hair. You can expect that for a particular hair strand it will have a lifespan of a couple of years. It grows about half an inch per month and then, after six years or so, the strand is shed.

Some women suffer from a genetic condition that causes the growth cycle to be interrupted. The problem here is that there isn't anything you can do about this type of women's hair loss. The good news is that it doesn't stop permanently (usually) it just gets put on hold from time to time. While embarrassing, there are definite approaches to cope with it.

Women's hair loss isn't as widely publicized as it is with men's hair loss. Maybe this is because women are not "supposed" to lose hair unless they choose to remove it voluntarily. It could very well be that women are less inclined to be vocal about this condition simply due to the embarrassment of it. This will change though, we certainly do hope. Before long the common causes of hair loss in women will be very well known.
