When you hear the term hair loss, the first thing that pops in your mind is a balding man, right? Hair loss is usually associated with men as it affects 50% of them by the age of 50. Although it affects a smaller population, women experience it as well and it can be much more traumatic in their lives. A women’s hair is vital to how they view themselves and their standard of beauty. There are many reasons why women lose their hair and many times it comes down to hormones.
Hair can tell you a lot about a person, including their general health and how they take care of themselves. When your body changes or goes through a stressful event it can change production of certain hormones and chemicals that can stunt hair growth or make it fall out altogether. The conditions and prescriptions listed below can result in your hair thinning or falling out.
