What are the Types of Hair Loss Common in Women?

Following are the types of hair loss that are common in women:

Androgenetic Alopecia in Women (Female-Pattern Hair Loss)

Female-pattern hair is the most common hair loss type that occurs in women. The majority of women with androgenetic alopecia have diffuse thinning on entire scalp area. Androgenic alopecia in women occurs because of the action of androgens, which are male hormones that are present only in small amounts. It can be caused due to different factors joined to the actions of hormones as some ovarian cysts, pregnancy, taking high androgen index birth control pills and menopause. Read More

Telogen Effluvium in Women

Telogen effluvium is the hair loss type that can affect women when their body goes through traumas like child birth, extreme stress, malnutrition, major surgery or a severe infection. Almost 90% of the hairs in the growing or transitional phases can shift all at once into the resting phase. About six weeks to three months after the traumatic event, the telogen effluvium may start. Read More

Anagen Effluvium in Women

Anagen effluvium is a type of hair loss that takes place after any damage to the hair follicle which impairs its metabolic activity or cellular-level mitotic. This hair loss is usually linked with chemotherapy. This happens because the chemotherapy targets the dividing cancer cells rapidly and other rapidly dividing cells of the body as hair follicles in the growing phase are also affected. As the chemotherapy starts around 90% or more of hairs in the anagen phase may fall out. Read More

Alopecia Areata in Women

Alopecia areata is a condition of hair loss that generally affects the scalp. The cause of alopecia areata is an inappropriate inflammatory reaction. In this condition the immune system of a person attacks the roots of hair follicles. Its symptoms include patchy hair shedding, which at times develops very suddenly. Nearly 70% of patients recover hair within two years, with or without treatment. Read More

Traction Alopecia in Women

Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss which occurs as a result of localized trauma to the hair follicles because of tight hairstyles which pull at the hair over time. In case the condition is diagnosed at an early stage then the hair will regrow. Braiding, cornrows, extensions and tight ponytails, are the commonest styling causes of traction alopecia. Read More
