Ways to Prevent Hair Loss in Women

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

There are some precautions that women can take to prevent hair loss problems. It is crucial for those who have had female hair transplantation to consider the following recommendations, so they do not experience hair loss again after the treatment.

• Models such as braids, ponytails, or bobbins that may cause shedding should be avoided while styling. These styles pull hair, put pressure, and can damage the follicles.

• Utmost care must be exercised in the use of heated shaping tools. If using these devices, ensure they are at low temperatures and use a heat protection spray.

• Avoid ironing, dyeing, or bleaching processes that contain excessive chemicals. These procedures can damage the roots of the hair.

• Consume foods rich in iron, zinc, and vitamin B12, as vitamin deficiency causes hair loss. You can follow a diet to help hair grow and take nutritional supplements.

• You can consult a dermatologist for personalized advice to prevent hair loss.

Causes of Female Hair Loss

Studies have shown that approximately 30-35% of women experience hair loss. In addition to hereditary causes of hair loss in women, there are many other causes.

Some of these are those:

• Hormonal changes that occur in general due to pregnancy or old age (hair loss is seen in women after pregnancy approximately 3 to 6 weeks after birth.)

• Menopause period: Generally, one in every two women experiences hair loss during menopause.

• Thyroid failure

• Medicines used to improve thyroid condition.

• Extreme stress and mood disorder (depression).

• Medication.

• Trauma that may occur after some surgical procedures.

• Wrong diets.

• Excessive styling of hair, frequent color changes, and perms.

• Environmental pollutants in air and water.

• Nutritional deficiencies, rapid weight loss, excessive consumption of animal fat.

• Vitamin and Mineral Deficiency: Iron deficiency and anemia cause hair loss in women. In a person with iron deficiency, the body cannot produce Hemoglobin. Zinc, biotin (B7), and protein deficiency can also cause hair loss. Keratin is a protein found in hair strands. It is effective in hair growth and repair. Vitamins A, B3, B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folic Acid), B12, C, D, E vitamins, and Hemoglobin are essential for maintaining hair health.

• Hereditary causes: Androgenetic Alopecia is a common type of hair loss seen especially in the front and top parts of women and after age 40 due to genetic reasons. This type of shedding, not defined as baldness, gradually thins the hair strands. While the front hairline of the person is preserved, mild hair loss is seen in the temple area. Androgenetic alopecia, which is more common after menopause, is observed in 75% of women over 65.
