Hair Loss Treatment For Women

– Are you suffering from female hair loss? It it hormonal? Lets find out. (warm music) One third of women experience hair loss some time in their life. But, after menopause,
as many as two thirds of women notice that
their hair is thinning. Most of us lose about 50 to 100 hairs everyday and when you wash your hair, up to 250 strands a day, that’s normal. Each strand of hair grows through three phases, anagen, catagen and telogen. About 90 percent of the hair on your head is in the anagen or growth phase. Which lasts anywhere
from two to eight years. The catagen, or transition phase, typically lasts only two to three weeks. During which, your hair follicles shrink. During the two to four
month telogen phase, your hair rests, anything that interferes with the hair growth
cycle, like medication, illness, infection or chemicals has the potential to stop the hair from properly being formed. Although, men’s hair tends to recede from the forehead or
the crown of the head, women tend to notice thinning of the hair on the top third, to one half of the scalp, sometimes the
frontal line stays in tact but you may see that your part is gradually becoming wider or more of your scalp is being seen when you pull your hair back. There’s something called
the Ludwig classification, its used to describe
female pattern hair loss. Type one is normal thinning
that can be camouflaged with hair styling techniques, type two, is categorized by a decreased volume and a noticeably increase
width of your part. And type three describes defuse thinning, you can actually see the scalp. Hair loss can occur for many reasons, stress, nutritional deficits, anemia, toxicity, even auto immunity. For most female hair loss,
is androgenic alopecia. androgenic alopecia is
caused by male hormones. Specifically, DHT, or dihydrotestosterone. It happens in both men and women. And its genetic, if your
female relatives had thinning hair, after menopause, you’re more likely to, the
decline of your hormones during the years before
and after menopause turns on the genetic
tendency for some women. Your hairs growth phase becomes shorter while the time between the shedding phase and the new growth phase lengthens. This means that it takes longer for your hair to start growing back and each follicle shrinks,
creating a shorter and thinner hair shaft, so, the texture of your hair changes, normally, each time a healthy hair is shed, it is replaced by the same size hair. But, in women with
female pattern hair loss, the new hair is finer and thinner, that’s because the hair follicles are shrinking and, eventually, they quick growing altogether. So, what can you do
about female hair loss? First, your healthcare provider should get blood work to rule
out thyroid disease, anemia or auto immunity,
hypothyroidism needs to be treated with thyroid hormone, hair loss that is related to anemia can be treated with iron supplementation. It takes two months or longer to see the effects, so please be patient. Auto immune hair loss can
be a little tricky to treat. Androgenic alopecia can be treated with male hormone blockers, like the drug, spironolactone, its a especially effective
with polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS because they tend to make a lot more excess male hormones. But spironolactone can
cause genital abnormalities in a male fetus, so, you must use effective birth control,
possible side effects of spironolactone include weight gain, loss of libido, depression and fatigue. A natural androgen
blocker is saw palmetto. 160 milligrams of this herb can help block male hormone from
effecting your hair growth and dim, the active ingredient
in cruciferous vegetables, also helps lower DHT to
prevent more hair loss. Take at least 200 milligrams a day. Another drug called
minoxidil can be applied to the scalp, topically,
to block the male hormone. But its not a miracle
and it cannot restore the full density of your lost hair. You won’t see results
for at least two months and the effects of minoxidil is usually peaks around four months. So, it could take a little bit longer. So, you really, if you choose this option, you need to really use it for at least six to 12 months and it may work but, if you stop, you’ll
start to lose hair again. One thing my patients with
thinning hair have noticed is that their hair becomes thicker and healthier when they
support their hypothalamus. By providing fidonutrients to the maestro of all your hormones, Genesis Gold helps balance your hormones and
support healthy hair growth. I’ll see you in the next video.
