Hair loss in women

Hair loss is relatively common in women, more common than one would imagine. Perhaps because "baldness" was long believed to be a male characteristic, hair loss in women was often ignored or dismissed as a socially unacceptable topic.

Hair loss in women is now fully recognised as a medical problem and esthetic concern. Many women today recognise the reality of hair loss and choose to do something about it by seeking hair restoration treatment or other procedures.

A woman does not generally expect to lose hair even if there is a history of hair loss in male or female relatives.

A woman also usually feels she must have a full head of hair to meet societal expectations. Thinning hair is acceptable only when a woman is very old.

Since hair loss is very common among women, you are not alone if;

  • You are unpleasantly surprised by the hair loss
  • You don't understand why you are losing hair


The most important thing to be aware of is that in the hands of a hair transplantation specialist, most hair loss in women can be successfully treated.
