Cause of increase in hair loss in women

There has been an alarming increase in the number of women suffering from hair loss in the past decade. There have been many studies showing that Androgenetic Alopecia, an inherited condition, is causing the majority of hair loss in women. Androgenetic Alopecia presents itself in the thinning of the central scalp, thinning hair, and patches of greater scalp. It is also possible that an underlying medical condition can cause hair loss, it is important to get a consultation from a primary physician if you have undiagnosed hair loss. Other causes of hair loss in women include hormonal changes, thyroid problems, Ovarian syndrome, and constant traction.
