Unlike men, hair loss in women or female androgenetic alopecia can generally be seen evenly across the scalp, without definite bald patches and can be caused by inherited genetic influences, an over production of the male hormone androgen, hormonal changes following childbirth, oral contraceptive pills, anaemia and menopause.
Female Androgenetic Alopecia is caused by inherited hormonal fluctuations that result in DHT oversensitivity. The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be over sensitive to the DHT and starts to lose diameter and length leading eventually to diffuse hair loss.
All above causes are treatable once the problem has been identified by our experienced trichologists at Harley Street Hair Centre. Contact us now for a free consultation and get the right treatment.
