Women’s Hair Loss – Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

Androgenetic alopecia in women is defined as thinning of hair in the front and top areas of the scalp.  This type of thinning does not lead to complete loss of hair.

What causes androgenetic alopecia in women?

Androgenetic Alopecia is caused by an imbalance in female sex hormones or can be triggered when a woman has a genetic predisposition.  An imbalance in the sex hormones leads to higher levels of Testosterone.

Testosterone turns into Dehydrotestoterone also known as DHT.  DHT is responsible for the genetic hair loss in women because it chokes the hair follicle, and slows down the hair growth cycle.  DHT turns healthy hair into fine, thin hair. Eventually the hair follicles die, and hair will not grow if there are no hair follicles.

There are signs that let a woman know if she has an over production of Testosterone.  They include excessive facial hair and an increase in oiliness of the skin.

    The best thing is going to the trichologist. If money is the issue as it may be ardseds under cosmetic problems. You can try the followings:1. Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables, which contain flavonoids and antioxidants that may provide protection for the hair follicles and encourage hair growth2. Avoid pigtails, cornrows, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers which can pull and stress your hair3. Supplement your diet with the following nutrients:* Vitamin B complex (Category A)* Biotin (Possibly safe; orally and appropriately)* Vitamin C (Category A)* Vitamin E ( Likely safe if amount does not exceed the RDA; possibly safe if it does)* Zinc (Likely safe when used orally and appropriately; likely unsafe when used orally in high doses)4. Use shampoos and conditioner that contain biotin and silica. Lastly if you want something that I already used and shows a good result on me . Visit
