What to Do With Female Pattern Hair Loss
Ladies. Is your part widening?
Have you noticed that your ponytail is thinner these days? You may have female pattern hair loss (FPHL), a condition that affects millions of women. FPHL is actually the most-common cause of hair loss in women.
For most women, FPHL begins in midlife, when a woman is in her 40s, 50s, or 60s. It can begin earlier for some women.
If it happens earlier at 20s or 30s, you may need to consult a dermatologist. Certain blood tests may be helpful in your condition.
However, please don’t lose hope. There are many options of treatment available. Firstly, make sure you take enough of Biotin, Zinc, Vitamin C,D, and Iron in your diet.
Secondly, make an appointment to see a dermatologist for proper assessment to rule out other treatable disease. Your dermatologist will advice you on your treatment option accordingly. You not necessarily need to take oral medication for FPHL if you not keen.
If you are breastfeeding or pregnant, please inform your doctor as well. Certain medications are not suitable during this period.
