Women's Hair Loss

For a woman, the experience of losing her hair can be a thousand times more traumatic. The matrix of emotions and the psychological impact is typically far broader and complex than that experienced by males. Feelings of confusion, fear, and anxiety are common, and accompanied by understandable feelings of helplessness.

  • Female hair loss is not a result of ageing.
  • Female hair loss is not a result of stress alone.
  • Female hair loss is not a result of hair colouring or chemical services during your younger years. 
  • Female hair loss is not a result of health problems alone.
  • Female hair loss is not a result of hair styling alone.
  • Female hair loss is not a result of oil or scale on your scalp on its own.
  • Female hair loss is not a result of the wrong shampoo and conditioner.
  • Female hair loss is not a result of washing your hair to frequently, or too infrequently.

For most females hair loss and hair thinning, have a combination of nutritional, medical and genetic causes. This combination makes up the majority of Absolique's clients. The sooner you seek professional hair loss advice from a hair doctor such as a Trichologist, the sooner your hair loss problem can be diagnosed correctly, and will be quicker and easier for your hair to return back to normal.

Female Pattern Thinning - Genetic Hair Loss

Genetically inherited hair loss in women, termed Female Pattern Thinning (FMPT), is a recessive trait. Meaning you must inherit the FMPT gene from both parents to be genetically predisposed to the hair thinning. If the genetic inheritance is strong, which you will know by looking at other females in your family back ground, you may show female pattern thinning without any other causative factors. This is unusual in most females, but if it is happening to you, and you can see a pattern with other females in your family, early diagnosis, and preventative measures may be all that is necessary to prevent the hair loss affecting you and your family generation.

In most cases, Female Pattern Thinning is genetically inherited, but typically requires a hormonal imbalance to trigger the hair thinning. This is commonly found in women experiencing any or a number of the following conditions: 
  • Women with PMT symptoms and monthly cycle problems
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Post partum alopecia (post pregnancy diffuse hair loss)
  • Iron deficiency
  • Thyroid imbalances
  • Blood sugar fluctuations
  • Loose Anagen Syndrome
  • Telogen Effluvium and menopause
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
