Different types of female hair loss
Hair loss affects around 50% of women in their lifetime. The most common form of permanent female hair loss is androgenetic alopecia, although the connection to a hormonal imbalance is less clear. This condition does have a hereditary link so if there is a family history you may have a genetic predisposition.
Weight loss, low iron levels, stress and lifestyle, poor eating habits, crash diets, hormonal imbalances, along with thyroid and other medical conditions can all cause the hair to fall out. Hair needs a healthy diet and a well-functioning endocrine system to grow and be healthy.
People have between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on their head. It is considered normal to lose between 100-150 hairs per day as the hair cycle is constantly cycling between the growth phase (Anagen), the transitional phase (Catagen), and the resting phase (Telogen).
