It's the main reason for baldness in 85% of cases. If your mother, your grandmother or aunt grew bald, the same can happen to you. In contrast to men that lose their hair on the top of the head or along the edges, women baldness takes place evenly on the whole surface of the head. Yet thinning of hair can be more visible on the top and along the edges as well. Nobody knows why hair stops growing. Scientists say, women that have a heightened quantity of male hormones and whose hair is very sensitive to hormone fluctuation, most often begin to lose their hair.
In course of time their locks grow thinner as follicles get narrower and eventually quit producing hairs. The bitter truth is that there's not much you can do to stop balding: you can try some medicines or hair transplantation. "Wonder-working" remedies as massage, creams, vitamins in large doses are not of a big use. But you shouldn't become disheartened. There are some resources of your choice.
The problem is not only in your head. You should know other factors that can cause hair loss problems. Nutrition. Low-calorie diets, when food value is lower than energy consumption of your organism. Protein deprivation (grapefruit nutrition or eating no beans, lean meat and other protein sources) affects organism adversely, because protein is essential for hair growth.
Anemia. Birth of a child. Such drugs as contraceptives, anabolic steroids, beta-blockers, blood pressure lowers and medicines on basis of vitamin A. Arthritis, lupus and polycystic ovaries syndrome. A hard stress caused for example by divorce or death of relative. Poor food can also lead to stress.
Some of these factors can provoke temporal hair loss. In a number of cases after a careful examination doctors recommend a healthy diet, stress relief and medication. Sometimes they help to renew your hair growth.
