It’s a common mistaken belief that hair loss is strictly a male disease. In actuality 40% of those affected by hair loss are women. It can be a very devastating affliction, especially for women, as it affects not only the individual’s image but their emotional well-being as well.
In the case of hair loss in women, the standard amount of hair one loses is between 100 and 150 hairs a day; 30% of females struggle with baldness as a result of menopause, pregnancy, hormonal disorders, and even medical treatments.
Sad to say, many women are forced to suffer in silence. As it is a more acceptable issue for men to treat their hair loss problems, the medical community has not put any emphasis on treating and focusing on the issue of women’s hair loss. Women don’t get much help or positive advice from their physicians, since it is not life threatening, and are told that it is not a big deal. But the reality of the situation is the resulting issue of psychological damage and stress through feeling unattractive, having low self-esteem etc… All of which can be just as devastating as any disease or sickness. And hair loss in women can, in fact, take an emotional toll which naturally affects your physical health.
