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, meaning you may be genetically predisposed to it if you have a family history.
Hair requires a healthy diet and a well-functioning endocrine system to grow and stay healthy. There are a number of factors that can cause hair to fall out, from stress and lifestyle to medical conditions.
People have between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs on their head. It is considered normal to lose between 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).
