WOMEN'S HAIR LOSS
You're not alone
If you're a woman experiencing Alopecia, Lost Edges or Uncontrollable Thinning, then you're one of the 27% of women in their thirties and 64% of those between 40 and 70 to suffer from female hair loss.
normal shedding or loss?
While it is normal, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD),"to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day,” if you feel like or see that your are losing more than that, it’s more than normal shedding. It’s hair loss.
women's hair loss can be different
The events that lead to hair loss in women all impact female hormone balance. The hair follicle is androgen sensitive, meaning it is sensitive to the fluctuation of male hormones, such as Testosterone.
Contributors to hormonal hair loss in women can be the reasons listed above, however, more often can be associated with:
Birth control use
Birth Control Pills contain artificial progestins that act like male hormones, known to shrink and damage the hair follicle. An overabundance of male hormones in women could potentially contribute to insulin resistance as well.
Low thyroid function
This is indicated especially if hair loss is accompanied by fatigue, unexplained weight gain, aching joints, constipation, dry skin, feeling cold all the time, poor sleep, etc. Hair follicles are sensitive to thyroid hormones.
Inbalance between Progesterone and Estrogen
This typically happens due to one or more of the following: 1. high blood sugar (insulin) levels. 2. excess adipose tissue (body fat) 3. elevated levels of androgens (testosterone) in women. 4. an ovulation
Low levels of certain nutrients within the body (poor diet), for example vitamins A, E and iron may result in hair loss.
Androgenic alopecia, hair loss when androgen levels are not too high, is an indicator of inflammation. Hair loss is just one sign of inflammatory issues like celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Inflammation hyper-sensitizes your hair follicles to a normal amount of androgen. Reduce inflammation by avoiding food sensitivities such as wheat and/or dairy, and by correcting intestinal permeability to reverse the hair loss effects seen in this scenario.
Giving birth and breastfeeding
During and after pregnancy, estrogen levels may frequently rise and then dip back down quickly. This sudden dip is what leads to hair loss after giving birth, which can be normal and should stop as hormone levels balance again. If hair loss is accompanied by a myriad of other symptoms post pregnancy, there may be a deeper issue beyond normal hormone fluctuations, such as thyroid function.
