Hair loss and baldness in women

Becoming bald or suffering from hair loss is a big nightmare for most women. Your haircut determines your appearance and is often part of your identity. In addition, the prevailing beauty ideal still assumes a full head of hair. This can make women who suffer from hair loss insecure and make them see themselves as less feminine and attractive. It is normal to lose about 60 to 100 hairs every day. It is only when you structurally lose more hair that you speak of hair loss. This is when you find more hairs in your hairbrush, for example, and the shower drain also becomes blocked more quickly. When new hair growth is not forthcoming, hair loss can eventually lead to baldness. 

Unfortunately, half of all women will experience hair loss at some point. The medical term for hair loss or baldness is alopecia. In this dossier you can read more about normal female hair growth and we will tell you all about the possible causes of hair loss and baldness in women. You can also read about possible treatments for hair loss and baldness.

How does normal female hair growth occur?

Hair growth takes place in a cycle. This means that your hair goes through several stages during its growth and these stages are repeated with each new hair. The growth phase - also called the anagen phase - is the first step and lasts three to five years. Hair grows on average one centimetre per month. During the growth phase, we see beautiful full hair, which needs regular cutting to keep your hairstyle in shape.

After this period, the hair enters the transition phase (catagen phase), which lasts one to two weeks. This is followed by the resting phase, also called the telogen phase. Normally, the telogen phase lasts between three and five months. During this period, the hair becomes duller and falls out, making room for a new hair to grow in the same hair follicle. It is therefore quite normal for a woman to lose hair on a daily basis.

Hairs always grow from the same hair follicles, which are already present at birth. The number of hair follicles on the scalp varies from person to person. On average, there are between 85,000 and 140,000 hair follicles on your head. Up to four hairs normally grow from the same hair follicle. After birth, no new hair follicles are formed. That is also the reason why permanent hair removal works. It destroys the hair follicle, so that a new hair can never grow again.

Causes of hair loss in women

When a woman suffers from hair loss, it can have several causes. A change in hormones, diet or stress can all play a role, as can a disorder. External factors, such as dyeing and tightly tying up hair, can also cause women to lose their hair. There are also other possible causes. Below you can read all about the different causes of hair loss in women: 

- Telogen hair loss: hair loss caused by stress and physical changes

A common cause of hair loss in women is telogen hair loss. In this case, the hair no longer follows the normal hair growth cycle. In telogen hair loss, many hairs suddenly stop growing at the same time. The hairs enter the transitional phase and then the resting phase, also called the telogen phase. When the hairs enter the telogen phase, they all fall out simultaneously after an average of four months.

- Acute telogen hair loss

There is an acute form and a chronic form of telogen hair loss. The acute form of telogen hair loss can be caused by a sudden or severe physical change. These include childbirth, serious illness (e.g. cancer), greatly reduced food intake, surgery under anaesthetic, stress, bleeding or a period of high fever.

- Chronic telogen hair loss

When hair loss lasts longer than six months, it is called chronic telogen hair loss. The most common causes of this are thyroid gland disorders, anaemia, certain medicines (such as blood thinners, antacids, painkillers, beta blockers and chemotherapy), excessive intake of vitamin A and diseases of the pancreas, liver and kidneys. Telogen hair loss can also be caused by psychological stress. A high presence of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline can affect the proteins in the hair. The result is a build-up of lactic acid in the hair follicles, which weakens the hair and makes it fall out more quickly.

Age-related hair loss: hair loss after menopause

Age-related hair loss often occurs at menopause, due to changes in hormones. Your oestrogen and progesterone levels then drop and you get a relatively higher testosterone level. About three to six percent of women under the age of thirty suffer from hereditary hair loss. Above the age of seventy, almost every woman has a less full head of hair.

It turns out that age-related hair loss is influenced by the same factors that causes your hair to turn grey. In this ageing process, not only does the hair become thinner, but also fewer hairs grow from a single hair follicle. This process is influenced by:

- Hereditary factors.

- Hormonal factors. In particular, the conversion of the male hormone DHT plays a major role. There is evidence that these hormones play the most important role in thinning hair.

- Mild inflammation. These play a role in all ageing processes.

- External factors including smoking, UV radiation and dietary habits.

- Psychological stress. Long-term stress in particular plays a role in the metabolism of the skin and hair.

Alopecia in women

Alopecia areata: patchy hair loss or baldness
Alopecia areata is a condition where the hair roots are affected in certain areas of the skin, causing one or more circular bald patches. The bald patches are usually confined to the scalp, but they can occur in all hairy areas of the body. In most cases, hair growth recovers by itself within a few months to years. In some cases, the hair does not return or new bald patches appear. When all body hair disappears, this is known as alopecia universalis or generalisata.

It is not known exactly how this condition is caused, but it may be related to autoimmune disorders. When not only your head, but even your entire body is hair-free, we speak of alopecia universalis.

Androgenetic alopecia: hair loss due to sensitivity to the hormone DHT
Another common cause of hair loss or baldness in women is androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia occurs when hair follicles are sensitive to the hormone DHT. Too much of the male hormone DHT weakens the hair follicle, which can lead to hair loss. The sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT is hereditary for both men and women. The effect of DHT weakens the hair follicle and shortens the growth phase from three to five years to a few months. After each growth phase, the new hair that grows out of the hair follicle becomes thinner, until the hair follicle dies and no more hair grows back. Also, fewer and fewer hairs grow out of a hair follicle. When this happens to many hair follicles, your hair becomes thinner and thinner.

The pattern of androgenetic alopecia is different in women than in men. This is because women's hair follicles are less sensitive to DHT. Also, the hair follicles on top of the head in women are more sensitive to DHT; in men these are the hair follicles in the "inlets" and on the crown.

Frontal fibrosing alopecia: localised form of baldness at the front hairline
Frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA) occurs almost exclusively in post-menopausal women over the age of 50. This form of hair loss is a localised form of baldness at the front hairline, often accompanied by scarring. The exact cause of FFA is not yet known. It is thought to be an autoimmune reaction, but it is also linked to the use of synthetic UV filters such as oxybenzone. Frontal fibrosing alopecia also seems to be related to the condition lichen planus. This is an inflammatory disease affecting the (head) skin.

Traumatic alopecia: hair loss caused by external factors
This form of hair loss in women is the result of external factors having a harmful (traumatic) effect on the hair follicles. These include factors such as perming, colouring or tying up hair too tightly. This damages the hair and causes it to break down more quickly. The broken off hairs can then fall out, with the result that proportionally more hairs fall out than grow.

Treatments for hair loss and baldness in women

Fortunately, with today's developments, something can often be done about women's hair loss. There are all kinds of remedies and interventions that can be used. In case of hair loss it is important to always consult a physician. The treatment of hair loss depends on the underlying cause. Want to know more about the different treatments for each type of hair loss? Take a look at our treatments for women here.

Recognising hair loss in time
When hair loss is visible to the naked eye, it means that half of the hairs have already disappeared. Sometimes this has been going on for years. This is why early detection is important. Read more about different methods to measure hair loss at home.

It is also important to know what kind of hair loss you have. For this you can consult a doctor. It is also possible to have a hair measurement with a so-called trichoscope performed by an expert.

Possible treatments for each type of hair loss
In order to treat hair loss, it is first of all important to conduct additional research. This reveals whether there is a physical cause underlying your hair loss, such as a thyroid disorder or iron deficiency. Once these causes have been ruled out, a number of treatments for women's hair loss are possible. These treatments can differ per form of hair loss.
