Hair loss in women is becoming relatively common with about 30% experiencing at least some degree of thinning in their lifetime. 

The psychological effects can be varied, furthermore, when there is a concept that any hair loss in women is socially unacceptable, women are more emotionally affected even when the thinning of their hairs is in early stages. These two perceptions make further complicated, the process of dealing with hair loss in women.

Hair loss in women is very gradual, From time to time, the rate can be varied, One of the most common reasons in women can be the rate occurring during pregnancy.

For women suffering from hair loss, there is a range of different treatments available. These include natural treatments, medicines, weaving and surgical techniques. Before searching for cures however it is important to understand what has caused it.

Hair Loss Diagnosis

It is essential for anyone that is suffering from hair loss and who wishes to treat the problem, first visit a trichologist. There exist various reasons for female hair loss during pregnancy - including stress related loss, loss caused by a bad diet, loss caused by side effects to a medicine you are taking and genetic loss. Hormones in women can also wreak havoc following pregnancy, abortion, miscarriage while taking the contraceptive pill or during the menopause.

If it is found that your hair loss is the result of your medication, it may well be that a simple change to another prescription, with the help of your doctor, is all that is required to reduce and stop. This in most cases will restore your hair's normal growth pattern after a period.

Loss caused by a bad diet may be treated with nutritional supplements. It could be that your diet is lacking in some of the essential vitamins and minerals that are necessary for healthy hair growth. Key elements that should be included in healthy eating are fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats and oils including olive oil and fish oils like omega 3 and low-fat dairy produce.

Hair loss that is genetic is known as male or female pattern balding, and this will require treatment by a trichologist to arrest further shedding and encourage regrowth. Similarly hormonal or stress related cases will also benefit from a treatment program to encourage the hair to enter the growth phase again.

Pregnancy, using birth control pills and menopause bring major hormonal changes in the female body and contribute to hair loss. Around 50% of the women suffer hair loss after the delivery, though the hair may not fall out till three months later.

Whatever the cause, book an appointment with a trichologist and they will be able to recommend the most effective treatments to stop further balding and encourage regrowth.

Natural Treatments for Hair loss during pregnancy

Natural hair loss products don't cause nasty side effects. They will not result in any loss of hair if you stop using them and are healthier for the body as they are 100% drug-free.

Medicines

There are some drugs available on the market today that claim to reduce and even cure hair loss. Among them, propecia and minoxidil are probably the most well known, but care must be taken with these products as they can cause side effects in some people who take them.

Hair Weaves

Hair weaving is the nonsurgical process of attaching hairs to those that you already have, to present an impression of a thicker head of hair. This is an excellent treatment for those who want to create the appearance of a full head of hair, and the results appear completely natural.

Hair weaving also needs to be maintained every four to five weeks and does not cause any damage to existing hair.

  1. I've been watching hair loss in women grow for years now. I think pregnancy hair loss is unique due to the hormone upset but still a worry. I have known women who suffered with this but the hair eventually grew back. In some cases the hair returned thicker and more lustrous.
