There are many reasons why women can lose their hair. The average scalp contains approximately 100,000 hairs. On a typical day, women can lose around 50 to 100 hairs. But if more hairs are shed each day, thinning hair becomes more and more noticeable. Fortunately, there are treatments available for most female hair loss problems.
Some hair loss conditions are only temporary, and the hairs will normally grow back on its own once the issue has been resolved. Other hair loss conditions, such as female pattern baldness, require treatment to help maintain and stimulate hair growth.
