Women's Hair Loss Causes

As a woman-owned hair restoration center, Unique Hair Concepts is particularly sensitive to women's experience of hair loss. Flora has evaluated just about every product ever introduced for the purpose of helping women with hair loss, and she only works with those that consistently achieve uncompromising comfort, security, and quality.


Androgenetic Alopecia

Unique Hair Concepts

Losing your hair is hard. No matter how much we learn about it or read about it, we just can't envision it until it happens. The experience isn’t the same for all of us. What we do share is that, when a woman loses her hair, it feels like something very real is missing. Until she finds an answer, going out in public, talking with friends, and being active can seem impossible. Nearly a third of women – 30 million Americans -- will experience hair loss at some point. Unique Hair Concepts was founded to be a resource for those women.

Alopecia Areata

Unique Hair Concepts

When your hair starts shedding, pretty much everything gets scary. You go through denial, despair, and fear – the whole spectrum of negative emotions. At first you don’t want to talk to anyone, but eventually you’ll be dying to talk to someone. When you get to that point, make Unique Hair Concepts your lifeline. We specialize in helping women through hair loss with a big-picture approach that’s about more than wigs and technologies. With us, the conversation is all about you.

Alopecia Totalis

Unique Hair Concepts

While many conditions can cause partial or temporary hair loss for women, Alopecia Totalis is one that is complete and often permanent. Like Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis is an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to use your body’s natural defenses against your hair follicles. In milder forms of Alopecia, hair may shed and grow back over time. Regrowth is less common for women with Alopecia Totalis, though it does happen. The chances of complete restoration through natural regrowth are small.

Alopecia Universalis

Unique Hair Concepts

If you’re losing your hair, it’s likely that you’ll find an endless array of resources, both online and off, of every possible quality imaginable. What few of those websites mention, especially if they want to sell you products, is the type of hair loss that doesn’t just affect your scalp. If you’ve been noticing changes in your eyebrows, facial hair, and arm and leg hair, then you could be contending with the most advanced form of Alopecia Areata, known as Alopecia Universalis.

Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia

Unique Hair Concepts

Hair loss is one of the most frustrating things a woman can face. Fortunately, our understanding of hair loss conditions and options for fighting them have come a long way in the last few decades. Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) is among the newest and least understood causes of women’s hair loss. Formerly called “hot comb alopecia,” CCCA affects women in the African American community. The hair loss associated with this rare form of cicatricial alopecia is permanent, so early diagnosis is key. Once you have a diagnosis, turn to Unique Hair Concepts for options.

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia

Unique Hair Concepts

Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) is a form of scarring alopecia that creates a band of permanent hair loss around the frontal hairline. This rare autoimmune disorder is most common among women in their 40s and 50s. Flora and her team have unparalleled experienced with FFA and can help you restore what’s been lost with incredibly natural-looking results – even your eyebrows!

Lichen Planopilaris

Unique Hair Concepts

Lichen Planopilaris (LPP) is among the types of hair loss that also comes with discomfort. This autoimmune disorder causes the immune system to attack healthy hair follicles and replace them with scar tissue. If itchy or painful bumps or raised patches have developed on your scalp, your best response is to get a clear diagnosis from a dermatologist. Once LPP has been diagnosed, Unique Hair Concepts can help relieve scalp discomfort and find the best way to alleviate hair loss.


Unique Hair Concepts

Any kind of hair loss can cause psychological struggle, but few types are the result of psychological conditions. Trichotillomania is the exception – a disorder characterized by chronic hair pulling. You might be feeling frustrated with yourself or a loved one who can’t stop pulling his or her hair, but it can happen to anyone, and the desire to stop is not enough. Similar to chronic nail biting, Trichotillomania is not a choice.

Medical Hair Loss

Unique Hair Concepts

For the most part, men lose their hair for one reason – heredity. Male Pattern Baldness is common, predictable, and largely harmless. For women and young people, it’s vital to find the root cause of hair loss because there are so many possibilities, many of which are harmful or require medical treatment.
