The facts about female hairloss & thinning hair
Did you know that the average woman is born with about 100,000 hair follicles on her head-and she keeps them for the rest of her life? Most women lose between 50 and 100 hairs a day. If your hair is healthy, it will grow back on its own. But if you're one of the 30 million women in America who experiences hereditary hair loss, you may be losing 150 hairs or more a day-hair that doesn't grow back as thick and healthy as it once was. You may notice more hair on your brush, in your sink, or in the shower drain. As your hair begins to look thinner, it may become a challenge to style your hair.
What causes hair
thinning in women?
Although there are many conditions, diseases, and hair care practices that can result in female thinning hair and excessive hair loss, hereditary hair loss accounts for the majority of hair loss. Women's hair loss is different from men's because it's more diffused. Hair loss can also be a symptom of stress, pregnancy, and the taking of certain medications. This is important to know because Women's ROGAINE® Topical Solution is the first FDA-approved treatment for hereditary hair loss in women.
