HAIR LOOSING AMONG WOMEN
Hair loosing among women is common between them and it is a natural part of getting older. When hair loosing which is an inevitable result for men appears among women, they loose their self confidence and their life quality gets affected. Hair loosing of women is commonly observed through the head as different from men. Women type hair loosing is connected with some factors like genetic structure, hormones, and age which cause hair loosing among men, too.
With the help of most modern hair transplantation methods, hair loosing
of women can be prevented.
• The existing hair follicles on the bald part of the head are filled
with no harm
• Hairs are gotten closer in the area where operation is applied in order
to provide more density
• Minimum amount of scars is provided in the receiver and donor areas.
• A completely natural hair line is created. Nevertheless hair transplantation cannot always be the best method. After the consultation which is carried out by your doctor, structure of your hair and causes of hair loosing can be determined and the most appropriate treatment method can be suggested.
Pictures display different categories of hair loosing.
Stress and affliction are the only responsible sources which lead
women to loose their hair. A lot of factors from stres and
affliction to thyroid problems; and from menopause period to anaemia cause
hair loosing for women. Specialists express the way to have healty hairs
by applying accurate care methods and treatments towards reasons.
Most of women complain at least once in their lives that their rate of
hair loosing is more than usual and their hair is weaker and thinner relative
to before; so they search for solution to this problem. A lot of women
who search for solution without knowing how and why they loose their hair,
apply some megavitamins, magical formulas and some materials that even
doctors and specialists do not know what they are and what they are used
for. Skin Diseases Specialsit Dr. Halil Bayazıt from VKV American Hospital’s
Dermatology Department, explained the reasons of hair loosing of women
and replied questions about this issue...
* Is hair Loosing of Women a Frequently Observed Problem?
50 – 100 hairs may be lost during a day, this is normal. This amount
might change depending on genetic structure, ethnic features and age of
the humanbeing. If a person loose more than 100 hairs during a day or
new coming hairs are weaker and thinner relative to before, this might
be accepted as a problem. Like the other living things, our hairs come
into the world, grow and die when their growing process stop. Approximately
90% of our hairs are in the phase of growing. This phase changes between
one and six years. The rest of the hairs is in stagnation phase and they
will be lost in this phase.
* Under what conditions is hair loosing of women observed most frequently?
Most of women experience hair loosing after giving birth and this process
continues approximately one year after the birth. This situation gets
better by itself and does not lead to baldness. Also the same temporary
hair loosing can be experienced after high fever, serious infections,
fierce influenza, stress and affliction, important accidents and operations.
Generally these situations do not lead to baldness and get better by themselves.
A second reason, general hair loosing which is dependent on some diseases
and lack of hormone-vitamins. The most common type of this kind of hair
loosing is resulted from overwork or underwork of thyroid hormone.
Proteins make up structure of the hair. If women consume proteins in
a very small amount purposely or inadvertently, their hairs get weaker,
their growing process stops and they will be lost at the end.
* Can drugs lead to hair loosing, too?
Some drugs which are used for treatment of different chronic diseases
may lead hairs to get weak and to be lost. But this situation is rarely
observed. But it is commonly known that drugs used during the treatment
of cancer, have side effects and they lead to hair loosing. 90% of the
hairs might be lost during this process. But, after treatment is completed
hairs will grow again in time.
THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE TEMPORARY
Some of birth control pills can cause hairs get weaker and hair loosing
for some women who have genetic aptitude. In this situation, taking another
birth control pill will solve the problem. Another issue about birth control
pills is that they lead to hair loosing in one or two months after quitting
the pill. This is a temporary problem, too. Hair loosing can be observed
when malnutrition, lack of iron exist; or when iron could not be absorbed
in intestines. If a woman’s menstruate period is hemorrhage, hair loosing
can be experienced, too.
* Does Hair Loosing Have Types?
The temporary hair loosing which resulted from the mentioned reasons
above and which can get better in approximately six months is called as
“telogen hair loosing (temporary intense hair loosing)”. If hair loosing
does not depend on a reason and does not get better in a year or more,
this type of hair loosing is called as “chronic telogen hair loosing (chronic
intense hair loosing)”. The most significant feature of chronic hair loosing,
baldness and weakening in hairs will not appear in spite of intense loosing
of the hair.
* Can Women Experience a Type of Hair Loosing which Would Cause Baldness?
It is rarely seen that a woman experience hair loosing which causes baldness.
For these women, we can say that manhood hormones (androgens) might be
overproduced. Besides hair loosing, these people experience disordered
menstruation periods, ovary cysts, man type pilosity, and some disorders
related to kidneys. These are signs of a disease and hair loosing can
be stopped with appropriate treatment methods. For another group of women;
they complain about hair loosing which is seen on top of the head, but
we cannot find any indication or reason. This type of women uses drugs
which are used by men. But in the case of man type baldness, they cannot
get benefit from hormone stopper pills.
DRUG TREATMENT EXISTS
*What kind of examinations are asked from person who has hair
Generally, some blood analysis and some hormone tests and analysis are
enough. Rarely, we need some visualization examinations. For chronic intense
hair loosing and women type hair loosing some drugs applied externally
can provide advantages. But it is important to know that these drugs are
not cosmetic products and they need to be used under a doctor’s control
for a long time. For temporary hair loosing, a treatment except hair care
is not needed. For hair loosing which is dependent on hormonal disorders
or malnutrition, when cause of hair loosing is healed, hair gets better
* Are there any relationships between nutrition and health of hair?
The most important elements which compose structure of the hair are proteins.
In order to have healthy hairs, people should take enough protein. It
is certainly known that taking enough protein via nutrition is very important
for healthy of the hair. Fish, chicken, fava beans, cheese, egg, hazelnut,
and walnut are important sources of proteins.
Are Hair Care Products Efficacious?
There are a lot of hair products in our bath. We buy them in accordance
with some different reasons like their fragrance, package, and promotion
products. But do you know why you need all these products?
Let’s think that how your hair will look like without shampoo. If you
don’t wash your hair, at the end your hair will become dull, will get
oily, it will even start to stink as the result of dust in the air, oil
which is produced by your head skin, and hair shapers that you use. When
shampoo is mixed with water, produce bubbles and gets a softener effect
(like rich ammonium sulphate and sodium sulphate) and remove filths on
the head skin, oil which is appeared, and remainders of the hair shapers.
Softeners and some additive elements within it are clarified with bubbles.
Bubbles provide help when filths are removed from hair and head skin.
Shampoo removes filths and makes your hair seem clean, shiny and voluminous.
Because of shampoos abolish the natural moisture of the hair, your hair
stays weak and weedy if you do not apply conditioner after shampoo. Conditioners
consist some elements like dymenticon and trisetilmonium chloride; with
the aid of these elements conditioners leads hair to get oily in a natural
way and make hair surface stay smooth. They prevent hair from curling
and weakening by expanding the static induction; and they keep the hair
soft and shiny. However, there shouldn’t be any misunderstandings here:
Conditioners can never heal diseased and damaged hair; because hair is
not an alive thing. Rate of using of conditioners depends on individual
need. For instance; if your hair is dyed, thick and shiny, your hair might
need more conditioner in respect of thin and undyed hair.
Although these products are not used every day, most of us keep these
products in our bathroom in order to give shape to our hair. Shaper products
include some elements like polymer and resin and make the hair stay in
its form. The most purchased products in the market consist polyquaternium,
PVP and dymetalaminoethilemethacrilade. Hair foams, sprays with gel and
shaper sprays control volume and curl of hair; and make them lasting.
These products are applied to dewy hair before giving shape. Compressed
sprays and some liquid products which make hair curly are lighter than
hair gels. They are used in order to provide stability of volume and curl
of hair. These light products make the hair to be felt more natural in
respect of hair gel. Stiffener and shaper gels, foams, and spray products
have the same effect but they are heavier and they are used to obtain
stiffer shapes. Also these products are used for immediate shapes and
to reshape dry hair. Because of there are a lot of hair care products
which are formulized according to different needs, we should choose the
most appropriate product for our hair type and our life style among them.
You need to consult to your coiffeur about the most appropriate product
which provide your new appearance to stay when you have your hair cut
or when you have your hair shaped. It will certainly be useful to take
advice from a professional about this situation.

apply spray again. This process keeps your hair under control and makes
it seem more voluminous.
