Women experience hair loss differently from men, typically affecting the entire scalp. When a thick, healthy head of hair begins to thin, it is distressing. Women generally experience thinning hair with age, coming about in the 50s or 60s, but in fact, excessive hair loss can occur at any age, and for various reasons.
About the hair growth cycle
Healthy hair follicles go through a three-stage process in producing healthy strands of hair. The majority of your hair follicles (about 90 percent) are in the growth phase, which lasts for several years. When the growth phase comes to an end, the transition phase beings, lasting about two to three weeks, followed by the dormant or rest period, which lasts about two to four months. Your hair should grow about six inches every year if the hair follicles are functioning as they should. Unfortunately, many factors can impact the health of hair follicles in women, affecting hair production and disrupting this natural cycle.
Your hair and your confidence
Women who are experiencing hair loss can feel less confident and may resort to wearing various types of hairpieces, from wigs to toppers, or even cosmetics developed to “fill in” a thinning area, so it is less visible. You have another choice – restore your hair with one of our many techniques, whether regenerative, with transplants, or with medication to trigger hair growth – or a custom combination of treatments developed for you.
