Women experience hair loss daily. It is estimated that women shed 50 to 100 hairs per day. This is normal since shedding hair is part of a natural head balance. Some hairs fall out while others begin to grow. If hair doesn’t grow back in an area that hair was shed, then this is when hair loss occurs. Women experience female-pattern hair loss and it affects at least 30 million women in the U.S. Women who are prone to hair loss include women over 40, women who have just given birth, women who have undergone chemotherapy, or women who use harsh chemicals on their hair. Additionally, certain hair styles can lead to hair loss such as tight braids or tight ponytails. Major weight loss could also be a trigger for hair loss since it is an extreme shock to the body. As stated previously, there are a variety of reasons to which why men and women experience hair loss.
