What are the possible causes of hair loss in women?

. Hair loss patterns in women typically differ from those in men, for example, diffusive hair loss is more prevalent in women
. One of the most common causes for hair thinning in women is Androgenic Alopecia
. Androgenic Alopecia presents itself in three different patterns: thinning in the central scalp, hair loss in the front of the scalp, and patches in the mid-scalp area
. There are many other conditions to consider which may cause hair loss in women including hormonal changes, hypo/hyperthyroidism, and polycystic ovarian syndrome
. Hair loss from many conditions can be halted or reversed if adequately diagnosed and treated
. Any unexplained hair loss may be due to conditions such as Alopecia Areata and Alopecia Totalis: these conditions require proper medical attention and diagnosis
. Other causes of non-genetic hair loss may be caused by hair breakage
. Common causes of hair breakage are frequent dyeing, over treatment with relaxers, and over treatment with straighteners
. Proper diagnosis is key to finding the right treatment options for your hair loss
