Hair loss in women can be anything from a slight thinning of the hair which can be felt when you tie your ponytail back to the scalp being able to be seen through your scalp to severe and noticeable hair shedding/ loss.
It can be absolutely devastating for the sufferer's self image and emotional well being, Women's hair loss is usually in a more diffuse pattern and so initially less noticeable than general male hair loss. The bad thing about this is that approximately 1: 3 women will suffer from hair loss in one form or another at some point of their life but do not recognise it as a problem, rather something that just happens as you get older. Unfortunately, society has forced women to suffer in silence. It is considered far more acceptable for men to go through the same hair loss process. Even more unfortunately, the medical community also treats the issue of women's hair loss as if it were nonexistent. Since hair loss doesn't appear to be life threatening, most doctors pay little attention to women's complaints about hair loss and essentially tell their patients that "it's no big deal” and that "you'll just have to live with it."
Of course what these doctors don't seem to realise is that most conditions can be easily treated, but the psychological damage caused by hair loss and feeling unattractive can be just as devastating as any serious disease, and in fact, can take an emotional toll that directly affects physical health.
Hair loss in women is very common and can be divided into acute (temporary) or Chronic (long lasting). Acute hair loss can be easy to fix when its cause is identified and dealt with. It can become chronic when it is not immediately clear what the cause is. Hair loss that could have been merely temporary may become long lasting as a result of an incorrect diagnosis. The potential for such misdiagnoses is perhaps the most frustrating aspect of hair loss for women. A Qualified Trichologist is the best person to investigate all of the different aspects of hair loss, so you have a better chance of finding out what the underlying problems is!
