Female Pattern Hair Loss
If you’re a woman, you might think you’re in the clear and don’t need to worry about balding as you get older. After all, that’s a man’s problem, right? We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but actually, about 55 percent of women experience some hair loss by the age of 70. So, what’s the cure for female hair loss?
The good news is that there are many hair growth and hair restoration treatments available for those who are balding. Before opting for a more invasive procedure, such as a hair transplant, follicular unit extraction, or Strip FUT, there are a few simpler measures to take to prevent excessive hair loss.
Try These Three Things Before Surgical Hair Transplant:
- Protect your hair from sunlight – As much as it is important to protect your face from too much exposure to ultraviolet light, it is equally important to protect your scalp.
- Maintain a balanced diet- Incorporating nutrients into your diet like Vitamin A, C, and E, help with hair growth and prevent future hair loss. This promotes the natural hair physiology in which the hair grows through the rapid division of stem cells which form keratinocytes.
- Minimize the use of damaging hair styling techniques such as harsh dyes and bleaches, hot styling tools, and plan to get regular trims.
