Hair loss is medically known as Alopecia and there are different types that are caused by different reasons. It is estimated that around 50% of women over the age of 65 experience some degree of thinning hair.
Losing your hair as a woman can be extremely difficult, especially if you start experiencing loss at a young age. The social stigma attached to women’s hair loss can sadly affect a woman’s confidence and how they perceive themselves.
Alopecia is something that you need to address early before damage can really set in. Also ideally before it gets to the stage that others can see it too. If you feel as though you can see a difference in your hair growth, then it is always best to seek an expert to find out if you are losing your hair and why this could be happening.
What to do if you notice hair loss (alopecia)
There are many types of hair loss and not all are permanent. Its best you know the reasons why thinning is occurring and if/how is it likely to progress. If you are worried about your hair, asking friends or family or taking pictures to evaluate – it is time to get some professional advice.
That said you don’t want to go straight to a surgeon or a salesman that may have just one procedure or product to offer. It is no surprise that most people who walk into transplant surgeries are sold transplants, even if they don’t need them. Sadly sometimes even though we feel a surgeon is a medical doctor who can be trusted, they still don’t make any money unless they convince you that their particular method is the best.
