At Home Hair Care for Hair Loss

Hair loss can be a sensitive topic for women. Many of us grow up emotionally attached to our locks, growing it as long as we can, treating it to hair masks and luxurious salon treatments while keeping it healthy with a proper diet and products. Which is why, with all this effort put in, hair loss can be a difficult issue to address.

What are signs of hair loss in women?

Typical signs of hair loss in women include:

  • seeing increased hair fall out
  • thinning of the hair
  • thinner patches
  • a more visible scalp

The first signs of hair loss will typically start where the hair parts, the center of the head, and along hairlines. Many of these signs are a part of Female Patterned Baldness, a hormonal and genetic cause of hair loss that, if left unaddressed, will gradually progress and remain un-treatable.

It is important to note that your hair will shed strands daily as a part of its natural lifecycle. Hair goes through three phases: Anagen ( growth ), Catagen ( transition/shrinking of the follicle ), and Telogen ( rest and fall out ). You will likely shed anywhere from 50 to 100 strands of hair everyday and if you do not brush daily, it is possible that when you do there will be an increase of strands than you are used to.


What are the leading causes of hair loss in women today?

Approximately 40% of women will experience hair loss of some kind by the age of 50, with an increase during menopause. During 2022, there was an increase in “hair loss” searches on Google due Covid-19 induced alopecia. But why is hair loss in women so hard to address?

According to Dr. Christina Han, Medical Director at XYON Health, “Hair loss in women is complex and can be caused by a range of factors, including aging (including menopause), stress, nutrition, or any number of medical conditions, such as autoimmune diseases. One of the leading causes, however, is simply genetics and this is unfortunately progressive without treatment. This can be highly impactful psychologically on self-image and confidence. That’s why at XYON we encourage women to work closely with their healthcare providers from the first moment they notice hair loss to ensure their condition is correctly identified and any necessary medication-based treatments can be initiated. When it comes to treatment, early intervention is key – the earlier you treat, the better the chances of maintaining existing hairs, preventing further loss, and even promoting new regrowth.”


How to treat hair loss in women?

Hair loss in women can be treated in several ways. A straightforward option is using Calecim’s stem cell hair regrowth serum as a hair loss treatment.

Minoxidil, the generic version of Rogaine, is a common topical used for regrowing fine hair. Originally used to treat high-blood pressure, it was found to be effective in growing hair for patients and could be applied directly to the scalp.

Finasteride and Spironolactone are medications that fight dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a hormone linked to causing hair loss by shrinking hair follicles.

Other estrogen and progesterone medications may also have an effect on hair loss.

Non-medication methods to help hair growth and healthy hair are using hair care products that stimulate hair growth and increasing blood circulation in your scalp such as through head massages.

Lastly, hair transplants are also an option for suitable candidates.
