Thinning hair dramatically affects 30 million women
in the United States alone
PC. Luis Quiroz Ravines
No one wants to lose their hair, but sometimes it is inevitable and when it happens, it dramatically affects self-esteem and safety, especially for women.
Males face the problem better, but they always try to find a solution.
The problem of thinning hair in women is increasing exponentially for various causes.
Dr. Maria Colavincenzo, a dermatologist at Feinberg Medical School at Northwestern University, specializes in treating the valuable hairs, especially when dealing with androgenetic alopecia, a hereditary condition that causes hair loss.
About thinning hair in women, Dr. Maria Colavincenzo says the following:
Many women to hide their thinning hair, use sprays, hair extensions and other subterfuges and although this does not solve the problem in the background, for their self-esteem can work wonders. For other women, the fall or thinning hair ruin their lives and are extremely depressed
Thinning hair and stress
Stress can play an important role in thinning hair although hormonal changes also have a strong incidence in problem
Iron supplementation or hormone replacement therapy are often adopted to combat thinning hair, but I would not recommend it for lack of further research to justify its use. If your iron levels are low, iron supplementation may help, but first I should know what you really need and where you are
Currently, the market is flooded with products that claim to overcome the problem of thinning hair conferring greater volume, but really very few stimulate growth of new hair
Women frequently ask me which is the best product to combat hair loss or thinning hair and I really do not have a clear answer.
Minoxidil, which is marketed under the Rogaine brand, is the only product recommended for women and approved by the FDA, which has had about a 25% success rate for a group of women, for another it has only allowed the problem not to advance, but for No one is totally successful.
If you decide to use Minoxidil, you should start early and consider a minimum daily use for six months and know that you may have some side effects like facial hair growth or scalp rashes but for thinning hair or worse hair loss, Is the only thing we have for 30 years
The use of steroid injections and laser combs, especially for alopecia areata and laser combs that emit very low levels and in some cases could stimulate hair growth, is something you can try if you do not have other options but it costs around for $ 350
Some women to solve hair loss or thinning are decided by hair transplants that are expensive and should only be started when thinning hair or hair fall is severe

Thinning hair causes
Hair thinning or hair loss happens in about 50% of women, usually from the age of 50 or 60, but it can happen at any age
Hair thinning or hair loss in women can have numerous factors
Aging: Age usually leads to gradual loss or thinning of hair due to multiple factors: diseases, hormonal changes in women, use of certain medications, poor diet
Stress: One of the signs of excessive stress may be unusual hair loss
Genetics: especially in men baldness can be a hereditary problem.
Hormonal changes: it is one of the most common causes of alopecia in women, especially after menopause.
Bacterial or fungal infections: these infections can cause the dry skin of the scalp, scaling, and loss or thinning of the hair.
Certain diseases: Hair loss may be a symptom of certain diseases, such as lupus erythematosus or diabetes.
The use of some drugs: Hair loss is usually associated with chemotherapy used in the treatment of cancer, although once the hair is finished, it comes out again. However, there are other medications that can lead to thinning of the hair: cortisone, drugs prescribed for the treatment of hypertension, anticoagulants (heparin), cholesterol regulators (hypolipidemic), tricyclic antidepressants, etc
Poor diet: thinning hair can be the first sign of a nutrient deficient diet, such as lack of iron and the absence or shortage of proteins or certain vitamins
