It used to be considered as strictly a male issue but recent studies have shown that as much as 40% of the female population suffers from hair loss. Hair loss in women can be extremely devastating but fortunately there is something that you can do about it. Our experts at Antech Hair and Skin treat female hair loss without drugs, wigs, surgery or needles.
We use Ludwig Classification to help describe the hair loss found in women. Female pattern loss of hair is different than male pattern baldness. A woman that has Type I hair loss experiences a small amount of thinning that certain hairstyling techniques can camouflage. A woman with Type II hair loss will notice that her midline part is widening noticeably and that she is experiencing quite a bit of hair loss. Type III hair loss includes diffuse thinning and you can see through the hair on top of the scalp.

A woman can lose hair for a variety of reasons including one or a combination of the reasons listed below:

It’s normal for everyone to lose hair and it’s estimated that we lose approximately 50 to 100 hairs per day. Once this amount is exceeded, however, you’re losing hair at an abnormal rate. You may notice more hair than normal collecting in your hairbrush or in the shower drain. You may also notice hair falling into your hands when running your fingers through it.
