Causes of hair loss in women
A lot of women experience hair loss in intense stages of their life.
Hormonal changes, for example with pregnancies, in the menopause or also in a late puberty, can weaken the hair growth. However, also psychic triggers like a lack of nutrients can harm the hair and show corresponding impact over the years.
For the most part, there is not a single trigger but the combination of different causes like stress, wrong nutrition, crash diets, pregnancy and menopause lead finally to hair loss. Genetically determined hair loss is less common in women but nevertheless advancing more and more.

The most common causes for hair loss in women:
Circular hair loss (alopecia areata) in women
The circular hair loss can become visible anywhere on the head. In a short amount of time bald circular or oval spots appear due to hair loss. These are quickly also visible for outsiders because the spots cannot be covered up depending on the hairstyle. In approximately half of the affected women those bald spots close after time, even without treatment. Nevertheless it can also be the case that the hair loss advances further and leads to a total hair loss (alopecia totalis). In the worst case scenario it can even lead to the loss of all body hair like the eyebrows, eyelashes and pubic hair (alopecia universalis).
If you are suffering from circular hair loss, you should observe the bald spots weekly. With minimal breakout – thus small patches on the head that are not bothering you (yet) – you can also wait for a while. But when these spots get bigger or you are unsure you can turn to a Hair Active Expert near you.
Thinning hair in women
Over the course of life it can occur that your hair roots produce increasingly thinner hair.
Often the problem is the scalp or a lack of nutrients. But hormonal changes – especially menopause – can also cause the thinning of hair.
If you notice that your hairstyle does not keep its shape, your hair is breaking more and you are having more split ends find a Hair Active Expert near you. He or she will quickly recommend you the right treatment. They will immediately see if the scalp is causing the problem and/or a lack of nutrients exists.
However, it has to be kept in mind that thin hair is no ultimate destiny! With the right approach you can reactive your hair growth in only a few months.
Diffuse hair loss (diffuse alopecia, telogen effluvium) in women
The most common type of hair loss in women is the “diffuse hair loss”. This means that the hair loss affects the whole scalp-area and is hardly noticeable in the beginning.
Causes can be hormonal changes, thyroid disease, iron deficiency, infections, scalp disorders, stress or a fat undersupply.
In a more advanced stage bald spots can form which can mostly be found along the crest. But it doesn’t have to get this far. A Hair Active Expert can advise and accompany you professionally to stop the hair loss and reactivate the growth of the hair.
Hair loss trough medication (for example chemotherapy) in women
Medication and poisonous substances can lead to a total loss of hair. Chemotherapy is certainly best known in this case. Here the hair grows back on its own normally. Fashionable wigs and headscarfs can help to span the time during the treatment.
If the hair – contrary to expectations – comes back in bad quality or not at all, you can contact a Hair Active Expert near you.
Hair loss in pregnancy
During pregnancy your body experiences a comprehensive hormonal change. This can be seen often in changed skin and hair. While many women – due to the increased estrogen during pregnancy – are pleased about full and fast growing hair, other women must realize an increased hair loss.
Causes of hair loss in pregnancy
The reasons for hair loss during pregnancy can often be found by unsuitable scalp and hair-care in the previous years. Hair loss can also be justified by a lack of vitamins and minerals. An Hair Active Expert can already give early warning of a possible hair loss by a scalp analysis with the micro camera.

For mild hair loss during pregnancy usually iron takings (increased doses you can get from your gynecologist) and a switch to a vitamin and mineral rich diet can help. Use natural and mild scalp and hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners.
