Female Pattern Baldness (Androgenic Alopecia): This form of female hair loss is usually limited to the front, sides, or crown area of the scalp. Unlike male pattern baldness, hair tends to thin rather than fall out completely. As the most common type of female hair loss, at least 40% of North American women will experience female hair loss by the time they are 40 years old.
Hypothyroidism: The thyroid system releases hormones that regulate growth and development through the rate of metabolism. Having both an over active or under active thyroid can cause changes to hair, including differences in texture and thinning throughout the scalp.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome): Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal disorder that affects how a woman's ovaries operate. Symptoms of this syndrome include irregular or no periods at all, acne, increased body or facial hair weight gain and thinning or hair loss on the head.
Folliculitus: Folliculitus is a condition where in which hair follicles become inflamed. This inflammation is usually caused by a bacterial infection where excess oils and sebum clog the hair follicles preventing hair growth. To relieve minor folliculitus, it is recommended to use over the counter topical antibiotics such as bacitracin or neomycin. If your folliculitus is more severe, you may require griseofulvin or oral antibiotics. Be sure to discuss with your doctor which solution would be best for you, as some of these medications have side effects.
Lupus: Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body's immune system attacks the tissues and organs.
A condition in which there is no hair growth. Unlike alopecia, which describes hair loss where formerly there was hair growth, hypotrichosis describes a situation where there was no hair growth in the first place. In this case, a fitted human hair wig is the wearer's best option to provide full coverage.
Hair Replacement options: Depending on the extent and positioning of the hair thinning, a wearer may opt for hair extensions, hair piece system or human hair wig that can add fullness and length to fine areas. If the wearer finds they have thinning throughout the hairline and crown area, it's likely best to look into a hair piece system or wig to provide adequate coverage.
