The commonly held belief that hair loss in women is uncommon, can lead to women, suffering from the condition, to wonder if there is something seriously wrong. In turn, this can lead to them taking quite some time to pluck up the courage to seek medical advice, and even longer to seek treatment.
A confidential consultation with Dr Mabroor Bhatty can provide the reassurance and confidence needed to take a positive step to remedy the situation.
The difficulty in dealing with hair loss in women is that a number of conditions result in the same diffuse pattern, in which the hair over the top and crown of the head becomes thinner. There is often some investigation needed to first isolate the true cause before deciding on a treatment.
Hair is lost because of a change in the lifecycle of the hair root caused by DHT. In simple terms, this cycle consists of a growing phase and a resting phase. Before hair loss sets in, the growing phase lasts up to seven years and the resting phase lasts three to four months.
Genetic hair loss is a result of the life cycle phases going into reverse i.e. the growing phase becomes shorter and shorter and the resting phase longer. Eventually, the hair grows very little or not at all.
