In Dubai, there are many women who suffer from depression and social stigma just because of hair loss. They keep suffering in silence and try different hairstyles to hide the bald patches. However, they should look for treatments and safe surgeries that can end their baldness problem.

Check out these Q&A (Questions & Answers) about hair loss problem in women that will help you to get the best hair transplant treatment available.

  • Question #1 – What Are The Main Types Of Hair Loss In Females?

Hair loss pattern in women can be divided into 3 different categories:

  1. Temporary hair loss
  2. Semi-permanent hair loss (female pattern hair loss)
  3. Cicatricial alopecia
  • Question #2 – What Is Temporary Hair Loss?

Temporary hair loss is typically related to hormone or nutrition, in some cases it’s occurs because of a few heavy medicines and cancer medications.

In a recent study done in the USA, it was found that nearly half of females had to suffer from baldness for around 3 months after conceiving a child. There is a high rise of oestrogen in a woman’s body after she becomes pregnant, and quite commonly her skin improves and her hair becomes better during pregnancy.

However, after delivering the baby, the oestrogen levels come down to normal and the hair reacts to the decrease in oestrogen by falling out. This also happens because some hair that falls down among both men and women every day as a natural process doesn’t fall while a woman is pregnant. So, during pregnancy women feel that their hair is more healthy and voluminous, but then it falls again after delivering the child.

The most widely recognized reason for temporary loss of hair is having insufficient iron storage levels in the body. The storage is a protein commonly known a ferritin. Ferritin levels also deplete when a woman faces heavy bleeding during periods, or follows a vegetarian diet. However, there’s no need to worry because temporary hair loss is completely reversible with proper treatment. The reason behind it is that the follicles (from where the hair grows) are still in a healthy condition.

  • Question #3 – Is Female Pattern Hair Loss Too Common?

Yes! There’s simply no doubt that female pattern hair loss is the most common type of hair loss among women. This problem is especially quite prevalent among women in Dubai.

  • Question #4 – What Causes Hair Loss In Females?

A woman at risk of getting affected by female pattern hair loss must have some specific genes in her body, but testosterone is considered as the major catalyst for causing hair loss among women. It happens because of the sensitivity of normal levels of testosterone.

However, there’s no need to worry anymore as hair transplant treatment is here to save the day! Women suffering from hair loss problem can choose hair transplant surgery that offers permanent results.
