Hair Loss in Women – Common Treatments

There has been a lot written and said about hair loss in women and the treatments of the modern day. Most of it tends to relate almost exclusively to men. Do these same treatments offer solutions to women suffering from hair loss ? Is there a completely different category of remedies available? It really depends on what is causing hair loss in the first place. The most common causes of hair loss are the same as those that affect men, the treatments available are pretty similar.

The three most common causes of hair loss in women are female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium and alopecia areata. Let’s look at each of these in turn and examine the best treatments available. It is important to keep in mind the specific needs of women.

Treatments for Female Pattern Baldness

In most instances, minoxidil is the first treatment used. This is one of only two FDA approved hair loss treatments. Sadly it remains the only one approved for use by women. Minoxidil comes in the form of a topical solution that works by tackling the symptoms of hair loss in women. It helps to generate new hair growth. It does not target the causes of hair loss and will not work for everyone. The women’s version of minoxidil is a 2% solution but the 5% version marketed for men can be used if necessary.

The most popular drug for treating male pattern baldness is of course Propecia. Women who are pregnant or at the age of bearing children should not use the drug. This is a must due to the severely damaging effects it can have on unborn male fetuses. Any women considering using Propecia should discuss it first with their physician. In some cases, a hair specialist may prescribe a different androgen blocker. This can be a measure to stop the hormone activity responsible for causing hair loss.

There is an incomprehensible range of commercial products available. Most of which are aimed squarely at men but many are also suitable for women to use. Whether they work or not are a different question. But some products containing ingredients like stinging nettle, saw palmetto, green tea and pygeum have shown considerable results.

Treatments for Telogen Effluvium

This is a hair loss condition that generally does not require any specific treatment. Once the effects of the shock and trauma that caused the hair loss have subsided, the hair will regrow of its own. Some patients like to encourage the regrowth process by using minoxidil but this isn’t necessary. Applying a good nutritional system and supplementing with Vitamin B may help to generate a hair friendly environment.

Treatments for Alopecia Areata

This is another hair loss condition that may resolve itself naturally. In some cases one of the following treatments may prove useful:

Daily application of minoxidil.

Creams and lotions containing cortisone can also be used but results are variable.

Application of 100% aloe vera gel.

Massage the scalp with rosemary and lavender essential oils in a jojoba base.

Massaging of hair Gro therapy serum into the scalp.

Please note, however, that none of these is guaranteed to work due to the unpredictable nature of alopecia areata. The fact remains; there are no miracle cures for advanced forms of alopecia areata. So people suffering from the condition may wish to consider other options such as head coverings and wigs.
