Five Reasons Women Lose Their Hair


There is nothing worse for a woman than losing her crowning glory. Women lose their hair for so many reasons and visible loss can be distressing to deal with. It’s not just men, either. Women deal with hair loss at a variety of stages in life, and while it’s more common for men to lose their hair as they age, us women don’t get an easy deal of it, either.

For women, most hair loss occurs in their late 50s early 60s, but there are still other stages in life that involve hair loss. For example, pregnancy is one of the most amazing times in life, and yet most women have to deal with a severe amount of thinning later on. There have been studies that show that female pattern baldness is one of the most common causes of hair loss in women and it gets worse as they age. Women who are affected by it are often in a period of grief for their hair! We rely on our hair to make us look beautiful (though, obviously, we are anyway) and it is a big part of our identity. To lose that is to feel like we are losing our womanhood, and that’s not always easy. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at five common reasons that women lose their hair.


1.) Aging
What’s one of the most common reasons? Age. As women age, hair loss spreads from the parting and spreads across the scalp, thinning it out and making more scalp visible. The skin changes that occur as we age makes for a flakier scalp, too.

2.) Hormones
When menopause hits - or in pregnancy as we mentioned previously - hair is affected. Thinning hair occurs as a result of hormones changing, and when you pair aging with the menopause, you get two for the price of one.

3.) History
If you’re worrying about female pattern baldness, you may not want to hear that it runs in families. If you have women in the family who deal with thinning hair at a certain age, then there is every chance that you will deal with the same.

4.) Stress 
Physical and emotional stress can affect your hair and your body attacks itself in those cases. When you feel physically stressed, your body reacts with pain and thinning hair is one of the other ways that it’s affected.

5.) Bad Diet
We rely on the right vitamins and minerals for our hair to stay healthy and nourished. When your diet is poor, your hair suffers for it. By ensuring that you are eating well, you can make sure that your hair stays your crowning glory and looks as beautiful as ever.

If you notice any hair loss that is unusual for you, speak to your doctor. They will go through your history with you and run tests to see if you are lacking in any vitamins. They’ll also be able to give you the right advice as to how to make your hair feel healthy once more.
