Hormone Imbalance and Your Hair - A Cause of Female Hair Loss : 

Hormone Imbalance and Your Hair - A Cause of Female Hair Loss What is the cause of female hair loss? Losing hair is something most of us will experience at some stage of our lives. A proportion of people will experience hair loss early in their life due to genetic influences or hormonal imbalance. For some or a large percentage of us it will come as we age. It is important to know we experience a normal shedding of hair as we can lose some one hundred or so strands on days. It is when more than this number is shed it becomes obvious something of a more serious nature is occurring. It is also important to know what can cause the loss because it is with this knowledge we can better cope and deal with the problem.

Here we will take a look at one of the causes of female hair loss, hormone imbalance. : 

Here we will take a look at one of the causes of female hair loss, hormone imbalance. Hormones are extremely important to a woman. They have an effect on a woman's emotions, her appearance and general health. Women produce progesterone and estrogen. Testosterone is also produced by women but for the majority of women, to a lesser degree than men. All three are required in an adequate and balanced amount in order for a woman to main good health and well-being.

Slide 4: 

It is when a woman's estrogen level is reduced or lost an imbalance occurs. The testosterone a woman produces can increase and convert to DHT or dihydrotestosterone. This occurs with the help of an enzyme known as 5-alpha-reductase. DHT causes the hair follicles to shrink as membranes in the scalp become thicker and less elastic. As a result this restricts blood flow and causes the hair to wither and fall and is not replaced by a new strand. In females there is a general thinning of the hair over the head. This is a different loss to those experienced by men where a receding of the forehead or thinning of the crown occurs.
