ABOUT HAIR LOSS
Hair Loss is a Direct Reflection of your Overall Health.
There are many causes of hair loss. The primary cause is both male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness, affecting almost 50% of adult males and 25% of adult women. This cause of hair loss is directly related to changes in your hair’s nutrition, levels of DHT and proper scalp hygiene.

Most women don’t even want to think about losing their hair. The very notion of hair loss in women can be devastating. The reality is that many women do face female hair loss, and for any number of reasons—but that doesn’t have to result in hopelessness or despair. There are always solutions available for total hair restoration.
The first step is figuring out why, exactly, you’re experiencing thinning hair. To do that, make an appointment with our team at Carolina Peach Hair Restoration. In a confidential, one-on-one consultation, we’ll take some images of your scalp and determine some of the potential factors that are contributing to your hair loss. From there, we can offer some customized solutions.
Causes of Hair Loss
There are other potential causes of female hair loss, too. Autoimmune disorders, like alopecia universalis and alopecia totalis, can lead to hair loss not just on the scalp, but all over the body. In addition, any hormonal fluctuation can result in changes to the hair growth cycle, whether menopause, pregnancy, etc.
Women may also experience hair loss due to medical treatments. It is well known, for example, that radiation and chemotherapy both contribute to hair loss. Even certain prescription medications can cause women to lose their hair. The good news is that this hair loss is usually not permanent.
There is also Trichotillomania —a nervous condition that’s characterized by the compulsive pulling or twisting of hair. This can lead to permanent scarring of the follicles, meaning the hair loss can be extensive.
Even lifestyle can result in hair loss. For example, wearing your hair in tight buns, ponytails, and braids can pull at the follicles and result in ongoing hair loss. This is what’s known as traction alopecia.
