Causes and Treatment of Excessive Hair Loss

Sudden hair loss often disturbs the sleep of many and brings with it great anxiety triggered by undesired baldness. Women find it even harder to bear. While the problem of hair loss is not common in women, they may suffer from this problem because of hormonal changes. Menopausal women are more prone to losing hair at an unnatural rate than the others are. However, hair loss among women who are in mid-twenties and thirties has also raised alarm. The first thing you should do is to visit a dermatologist to undergo scalp check-up.

Problems may arise out of imbalance in secretion of hormones like thyroid, testosterone and progesterone. Female hair loss may also result from poor nutrition, anemia and serious illness. In some women, the problem of hair loss is noticed a few months after they have had the baby. Medicines like blood thinners, blood control pills, antidepressants and the ones used in chemotherapy often contribute to hair loss.

You would have surely come across the term “common baldness”. It is a typical condition related to male-pattern baldness. This type of baldness generally occurs because of hereditary trait. The hairline recedes with baldness occurring on the top of the head. Female-pattern baldness is characterized by thinning of hair over the whole scalp.

Before devising a treatment for your hair loss, you will have to know the underlining cause behind it. If the problem has triggered because of hormonal imbalance or medicinal effect it can be corrected. You can slow down development of baldness by applying minoxidil (brand name: Rogaine) on your scalp. While minoxidil is available even without prescription, you can get finasteride (brand name: Propecia) under prescription. If you do not find adequate treatment of hair loss for you, you can also think of hairpieces, wigs and hair weaves as substitutes.
