What are the Common Causes of Hair Loss in Women?

Hormonal Factors

Generally, hair loss is caused by a number of factors. The most common factor for hair loss in women is due to hormonal changes. This can be due to conditions such as menopause or even pregnancy. Stress can also cause hormonal shifts, which in turn causes thinning hair or hair loss in general. When the body adjusts and the hormonal levels return to normal, the hair loss should stop on its own. 

Nutrient Deficiencies

If you have a change of diet, or if you are trying a new form of dieting, it can sometimes affect your scalp. Nutrient deficiencies can be solved by readjusting your diet, and by consulting a doctor or a dietitian. Sometimes, there may be an underlying health or medical condition, hence it will be important to check with your doctor on this. 

Female Pattern Baldness or Alopecia

About one-third of women experience hair loss (also known as alopecia) at some time in their lives. Hair loss in women often has a greater impact than hair loss does on men, because it’s less socially acceptable for them. This type of hair loss is very similar to that experienced by men. It is known as androgenetic alopecia or female pattern hair loss. For women, it usually begins with the gradual thinning at the hair parting line. Then slowly but surely, there will be an increase of diffused hair loss radiating from the top of the head or the hair parting line. 

Lidwig Scale for Female Pattern Baldness Classification

The Ludwig scale is a method of classifying female pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia), and ranges from stages I to III. Stage I begins with thinning on the top of the head. In stage II the scalp starts to show. All of the hair at the crown of the head may be lost when the hair loss progresses to stage III. However, the scale is used merely for general categorisation. 

Please see the table below for the main types of hair loss as well as their prevention and suggested treatments.

Main Types of Hair Loss, Their Prevention and Suggested Treatment
Androgenetic alopecia is a typical form of loss of hair in both men and women. In males, this condition is also called male-pattern baldness

What is Androgenetic Alopecia?

Understanding Androgenetic Alopecia: The Role of Androgens

Androgenetic alopecia, a common form of hair loss, is closely linked to the hormones known as androgens. These hormones are crucial for regular male sexual development and carry out several key functions in both sexes. These include influencing sex drive and regulating hair growth. Androgenetic alopecia is often an inherited condition and typically involves multiple genes.

The Potential Causes of Androgenetic Alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia could be triggered by an underlying endocrine condition, such as the overproduction of androgen. Alternatively, it could be due to an androgen-secreting tumour present on the ovary, pituitary, or adrenal gland. Regardless of the specific cause, the common factor in these cases is typically increased androgen activity.

The Complexities of Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

Unlike in men, deciphering the precise role of androgens in androgenetic alopecia among women can be more complex. In case an androgen-secreting tumor is implicated, it becomes critical to measure androgen levels in women who are experiencing clear signs of female pattern hair loss. This aids in providing a more precise diagnosis and targeted treatment approach.

Medications for hair loss include minoxidil (Rogaine) and finasteride (Propecia)

Treating Hair Loss with Minoxidil

Rogaine: An Over-The-Counter Solution for Hair Loss

Rogaine, commonly recognized by its brand name, is an over-the-counter medication that is useful for both men and women suffering from alopecia areata or androgenic alopecia. Available in a foam or liquid form, this drug is designed for daily application on the scalp.

The Journey with Rogaine: Initial Shedding and New Growth

An important aspect to note about Rogaine is that it may initially cause increased hair loss. However, this is typically a sign that the treatment is working as the old hairs are being pushed out to make room for new growth. The new hair growth might appear thinner and shorter at first.

The Long-Term Commitment: Consistent Use for Effective Results

To see substantial changes, Rogaine needs to be used consistently for six months or more. This persistence is necessary to prevent further hair loss and promote new hair growth. At Wellaholic, we optimize the benefits of Rogaine by combining it with our HairGrow 3X and Microneedling for Scalp treatments, tailoring a comprehensive hair regrowth strategy for our clients.

Treating Hair Loss with Spironolactone Pills

Understanding Spironolactone: A Hormone-Focused Approach to Hair Loss

Often known by its brand name, Aldactone, spironolactone is a medication that targets hormones to address hair loss. Its unique mechanism involves binding to androgen receptors, subsequently reducing the body’s processing of testosterone. While its usual applications include treating swelling, high blood pressure, and potassium deficiency, it also serves as an anti-androgen, making it useful for those suffering from hair loss due to elevated androgen levels.

The Anti-Androgen Effect: Slowing Androgen Production

The role of spironolactone extends to regulating androgen production. As it belongs to male sex hormones, androgens include testosterone. The reduction in androgen production brought about by spironolactone can effectively slow down hair loss progression caused by androgenic alopecia.

Promising Results: Encouraging Hair Regrowth with Spironolactone

Not only does spironolactone limit hair loss, but it also encourages hair regrowth. By suppressing the production of androgens, it can stimulate the regrowth of hair, presenting a promising solution for those dealing with androgenic alopecia.

Tretinoin was shown to stimulate some hair regrowth in approximately 58% of the subjects studied

Treating Hair Loss with Tretinoin

Introduction to Retin-A: A Potent Ally in Hair Regrowth

Retin-A, also known as topical tretinoin, has found its use in combination therapy with minoxidil for the treatment of androgenic alopecia. The role of topical all-trans-retinoic acid (tretinoin) in hair growth has been investigated both alone and with 0.5% minoxidil in subjects suffering from androgenetic alopecia.

Exploring the Effectiveness of Combination Therapy

When used for a year, the combination of topical tretinoin with 0.5% minoxidil led to terminal hair regrowth in 66% of the studied subjects. Even standalone usage of tretinoin showed promising results, stimulating some hair regrowth in about 58% of subjects.

The Mechanism Behind Tretinoin’s Hair Growth Promotion

The effectiveness of tretinoin in promoting hair growth can be attributed to its role in cellular processes. It has been demonstrated to foster and regulate cell proliferation and differentiation in the epithelium. Additionally, it may encourage vascular proliferation – crucial factors for promoting hair growth.

Treating Hair Loss with Corticosteroid Injections

Corticosteroid injections, like all treatments for alopecia areata, do not prevent new hair loss from developing. While there are few reported side effects related to this kind of treatment, temporary depressions (called “dells”) in the skin may result from the injections. However, these usually improve with time. ​If new hair growth occurs from corticosteroid injections it is usually visible within four weeks. There are few known side effects related to this kind of treatment.

Treating Hair Loss with Anthralin

Drithocreme (Anthralin) is a topical medication used to control inflammation at the base of the hair follicles. It is used in conditions such as alopecia areata. ​A few controlled trials have assessed the efficacy of topical anthralin in the treatment of alopecia areata. In an open study, a cosmetic response was seen in 25% of patients with severe alopecia areata treated using 0.5%–1.0% anthralin cream.
