Thinning locks and bald patches… the hidden horrors of female hair loss and how to fix it
Female hair loss: The facts
– Often considered a male issue, 40% of hair loss sufferers are actually women.
– Female pattern baldness can be inherited and tends to affect post-menopausal women. It often starts with a thinning of the hair on the top of the head.
Telogen effluvium is general shedding from all over the head and sometimes it gets worse with stress, illness, medication or hormones.
– Androgenetic alopecia causes the hair follicles to produce thinner hair until they stop altogether.
– Alopecia areata – which Gail Porter suffers from – is an autoimmune disease that affects around 2% of the population. It causes round patches of hair loss and can lead to total baldness.
