It is very common and perfectly normal to see hair in the shower drain or on your hairbrush if you are a woman. In fact, the average female sheds 50-100 strands per day, according to Smart Beauty Guide. The shedding of hair is part of a healthy hair growth cycle. There are three main stages of hair growth, called the anagen, catagen and telogen phases. Each strand of hair can be in its own stage. In general, your hair grows for about two to six years before it stops and enters the shedding (telogen) phase. Once the cycle is complete, it begins again as a new strand of hair starts to grow.
While some shedding hair is normal, it is a much more serious matter for some women. Whether temporary or not, when the hair growth cycle gets disrupted, hair loss can occur. Contrary to popular belief, men are not the only ones to experience hair loss and pattern baldness. According to the American Hair Loss Association, 40% of hair loss sufferers are females! Unfortunately, many women suffer in silence when there are proven hair loss treatments available.
Reasons for Hair Loss Treatment
We know that hair loss and thinning hair is a result of a disruption of the hair growth cycle. There are a number of factors that can cause this for women, including the following:
- Hormonal changes and pregnancy
- Metabolic imbalances
- Improper nutrition or vitamin deficiencies
Some types of hair loss are a temporary side effect of one of these factors, and other cases are more permanent. Determining the culprit to female hair loss is the first step towards effective treatment.
