Women’s Inherited Hair Loss
Lots of things can cause a woman’s hair to thin, and one is as simple as having a gene that makes you likely to develop female pattern hair loss. Though women are less likely than men to have inherited hair loss, it’s definitely not uncommon. Women’s androgenetic alopecia is the female equivalent of male pattern baldness, and it works the same way. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a derivative of the hormone testosterone, binds to hair follicles and prevents them from getting the nutrients they need. The difference is that diffuse thinning, which rarely happens in men, is a telling sign of genetic hair loss in women. This means that thinning can happen anywhere on the scalp or all over, and some women lose hair in a combination of patterns.
The first step is to understand.
Once you've accepted that you have a hair loss problem, you might be eager to do something about it. The most important thing to do before you make any long-lasting decisions is to make sure that genetics are truly to blame for your thinning hair. Androgenic alopecia can be triggered by a variety of factors tied to the actions of hormones, including some ovarian cysts, certain birth-control pills, pregnancy, and menopause.
