Commonly though to be a male disease, women also experience hair loss and balding. And hair loss can seriously affect on a women’s self image and emotional well being. Women’s hair loss receives little attention from the medical community compared to male pattern baldness. As a result, you wouldn’t believe how many women do not seek help and go on with their normal lives feeling unattractive. Fortunately, HairPlaceNYC recognizes that hair loss in women is a real issue and has its very own hair loss solutions and resources designed specifically for women and girls of all ages.

Causes of Hair Loss in Women: Hair Loss in women can be a temporary issue, which can be easily fixed, or ongoing. Hair loss that is temporary can become long lasting. Diagnosing which type of hair loss you have can be frustrating, and you will want to consult with a hair loss specialist. The sooner you identify your particular kind of hair loss, the sooner you can begin treatment. A successful treatment of hair loss is greatly dependent on early intervention.

Alopecia is the medical term for excessive or abnormal hair loss. Both men and women can experience alopecia for a number of reasons including: a hormone imbalance, disease, reactions to substances (including the pill, hormone injections, and medications), or a heredity gene that makes you susceptible to female pattern baldness (alopecia areata), and unprofessional hair extensions (i.e. excessively tight ponytails). Short-term hair loss can result from events such as stress, pregnancy, and certain medications, and usually the hair starts growing back on it’s own after the event.
