The 3 most common reasons for and what you can do to stop the hair loss
Hair loss is no longer an issue that is only Men concerns. More and more Women suffer from hair loss worldwide. While in the United States more than 30 million women are affected, in Germany it is already around 4 million. And the trend is rising. Globally, up to 40% of all women up to the age of 50 years are affected by hair loss or loss of hair fullness, after menopause even more. So you are not alone with this problem.
However, the so-called female pattern baldness is by no means as socially accepted as male pattern baldness, and so we women suffer particularly from it when suddenly whole tufts of hair come off the scalp when brushing the hair in the morning.
Thick, shiny and full hair - we are confronted with this ideal of beauty every day, so extensions, wigs, weaves, as well as countless hair restorers and hair care products are booming to come closer to this ideal.
But what exactly are the reasons for hair loss in women and how can it be stopped?
Cause 1 - Genetically caused hair loss:
The so-called androgenetic alopecia is the most common form of hereditary hair loss and affects more than half of all men and almost as many women. The hair root reacts hypersensitively to male sex hormones, the androgens, with the result that the hair cycle is disturbed and in the worst case this can lead to complete baldness.
Female pattern baldness, unlike in men, usually begins with a thinning of the crown and then spreads over the entire head area. Formerly strong hair becomes thinner with each hair cycle and the scalp shimmers more and more through to complete baldness. If you already have family members who suffer from androgenetic alopecia, there is a good chance that you will also be affected.
Whether your type of hair loss is caused by genetic factors can therefore be clearly seen from the pattern of hair loss, which is described in the Norwood Scale is described. If this type of hair loss remains untreated, it is likely that your hair will continue to thicken with age.
Cause 2 - Stress:
Stress-related hair loss is more common than you may be aware. We women are sensitive beings and both professional and private stress quickly affect our general well-being. The good news is that this type of hair loss is quite reversible and can often regulate itself as soon as the stress subsides.
It becomes difficult when the stress is permanently present and an already advanced hair loss leads to even more mental stress. Because once the hair has fallen out and even bald spots have developed, this very often leads to even more emotional stress. We no longer feel comfortable in our skin. Especially circular hair loss can have a lasting negative influence on our self-confidence.
Persistent stress, in turn, can result in the hair root no longer being adequately supplied with nutrients. A vicious circle. The hair falls out. The growth phases of the hair are disrupted and so it can take another 6-9 months until the hair roots have recovered and new hair growth begins, even if the stress factors have been successfully eliminated.
Cause 3 - Nutrition:
One-sided malnutrition and a generally unhealthy lifestyle have just as negative an effect on hair growth as strict diets or fasting cures. If there is an acute lack of nutrients in the body, the hair follicles are no longer sufficiently supplied and the hair falls out. A deficiency of e.g. iron, zinc, trace elements, amino acids, vitamin B, biotin and vitamin C usually manifests itself in the form of diffuse hair loss rather than extensive baldness.
The hair cycle is disturbed by a lack of nutrients and new growth is reduced or stopped, which leads to the hair becoming thinner and thinner. Hair that has fallen out does not grow back. If the mineral deficiency is remedied, the hair normally grows back, but this can take a long time and in some cases, without outside help, the previous hair never grows back.
Iron deficiency is also one of the main reasons why pregnant women often suffer from hair loss. Both during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, we women have a higher iron requirement, as our growing baby also wants to be provided for. An iron deficiency is noticeable, among other things, by a pale complexion, persistent tiredness and low resilience. Studies have shown that as many as 60% of women with diffuse hair loss have a significant iron deficiency.
Hair loss - What to do?
The first step is to determine the reason for your hair loss. If your hair is slowly thinning and lightening from the parting, it is likely that you are suffering from androgenetic alopecia. In this case, your hair follicles are hypersensitive to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and the only way to prevent this is to reduce the influence of this hormone.
Circular hair loss, which often comes suddenly and unexpectedly, is usually caused by stress. Since this type of hair loss often results in large areas of bald patches that cannot be easily hidden, a quick solution is definitely desired. Certainly, the removal of the stress factors is the obvious solution, but we all know that this is not always possible. Therefore, it is important to restore the hair roots to optimal nutrition as quickly as possible, so that they can withstand the influence of physical and emotional stress and the hair cycle is maintained.
Similarly, in the case of diffuse hair loss, often caused by permanent or temporary malnutrition, it is important to provide the hair with the appropriate care. In this way, your hair will not be affected, despite nutritional deficiencies.
Factor Hair Activator
3 reasons for hair loss - 1 solution
Every hair goes through 3 cyclical growth phases, anagen, catagen and telogen, each of which lasts three to five years. If there is a nutrient deficiency or if the male hormone dihydrotestosterone negatively influences this growth cycle, the individual phases can be shortened or even completely stopped. This leads to thinning of the hair or hair loss.
A new, naturally produced active ingredient called MKMS24 ensures that the anagen phase, the first and longest growth phase in the hair cycle, is prolonged and there is no premature loss. At the same time, this active ingredient shortens the telogen phase, the phase in which the hair shaft loosens and falls out, so that new hair can grow back quickly. To ensure that the hair can grow optimally and does not thicken further, the Factor Hair formula provides hair with all the nutrients it needs to regenerate itself completely.
With regular use, hair loss in women, especially the effects of androgenetic alopecia, can be controlled and even reversed. Factor Hair Activator not only effectively stops new hair loss, but also helps to stimulate new hair growth.
