The process, in which there is a complete loss of hair or a significant reduction in their number, called alopecia. This disease is typical for both men and women. But if for men bald is often even a kind of indicator of style and attractiveness, then, of course, women can not be bald, and hair is one of their most important riches.
Alopecia in women appears for a variety of reasons, which must be determined before treating and restoring the hair. Identification of the causes can only be done by a specialist (trichologist) or, if there is none, you should simply consult a therapist and tell about your problem, and he will advise you what actions you need to take first, what tests to pass first.
Alopecia in women most often can be written off by themselves on the simplest hair loss from a lack of vitamins. Therefore, they believe that by buying vitamins on the advice of girlfriends or their own choice, they can solve the problem. But this is far from the case. Everything can lead to bad consequences, which will be almost impossible to correct. In this regard, with the slightest suspicion that hair loss occurs in large numbers and does not lend itself to reasonable explanation, contact a specialist and do not start a disease that is not treated easily. An important indicator that your hair falls out too much is the amount of hair lost per day. If it exceeds 150, then soon you can grow bald if you do not take urgent measures.
Alopecia in women is of several kinds, so it must be recognized in order to prescribe the right treatment. The most common type of alopecia is androgenic, which affects 95% of all suffering from alopecia. And it affects both men and women. For its treatment, medications are used, among which the most popular is minoxidil, which acts on the hair follicle. It will not be superfluous to resort to massage, electrostimulation, hypnotherapy. And even with such a large set of remedies, the first visible results will appear only after a few months.
There are known methods of treating this type of alopecia with the help of surgical intervention, when hair follicles are transplanted to the bald areas of the scalp from the sides and the occiput. But such an operation can not always give a positive result and does not suit everyone.
A rare disease is focal alopecia, in which not all hair falls out, but only in certain areas. At the same time on the head formed bald patches of small round shape, the skin of which is smooth, without any inflammation. The appearance of this type of alopecia, as a rule, contributes to violations in the immune system, transferred infectious diseases, diseases of the nervous system and heredity. Focal alopecia in women can reach different scales - from the defeat of a small area of the head to complete baldness, including the loss of eyebrows and eyelashes. But the main problem with this form of alopecia is the difficulty in determining the causes of its appearance, therefore in this case, several doctors are approached immediately to carry out not one but many types of laboratory research. With the timely commencement of treatment procedures, this type of alopecia is well curable, and after six months you can see the appearance of a light cannon from hair on the bald areas, and then they thicken and get a normal look. This type of alopecia can arise again even in case of a cure. As a means of treatment, the use of sedatives is practiced, as well as rubbing alcoholic solutions in the places where the hair falls out, the most common of these is tincture of capsicum pepper. But there are also cases of deterioration of the process, when alopecia becomes worse and alopecia affects not only the hair on the head, but also on the whole body, and becomes universal.
Alopecia in women is also diffuse: with this hair thinning over the entire head. This condition is typical for pregnant women due to hormonal changes in the body or for those who "sit" on a strict diet, which lacks vitally important vitamins. Hair loss stops and their appearance is restored when the hormones come back to normal.
Diffuse character is also characteristic of seborrheic alopecia, which arises from violations of fat release and increased fatness of hair. From alopecia in women of this kind is easy to get rid of, if you are engaged in treating seborrhea, also by contacting an experienced dermatologist or trichologist.
From hair loss, no one is immune, but an important factor here is healthy and proper nutrition: the use of foods rich in zinc, iron, selenium. Do not run those diseases that lead to a deterioration in hair quality and hair loss, but hairdresses should not pull together hair, especially for a long time.
Alopecia in women, whose treatment was prescribed in time, will gradually disappear, and hair will acquire a beautiful and healthy appearance and shine. And most importantly - you should never let the disease run its course and self-medicate. We must protect our health!
