Common Myths About Female Hair Loss

Common myths about female hair loss debunked

As part of National Hair Loss Awareness Month, we’re debunking women’s hair loss common myths

This August, Wigs and Hair Solutions is honoring National Hair Loss Awareness Month by discussing topics that deserve more attention than they receive. About a third of all women experience alopecia at some point in their lives, and two-thirds of postmenopausal women report thinning hair or bald spots. Learn more about female hair loss, and discover four common myths associated with the condition. 

Only Men Experience Hair loss 

One of the most frequent myths is that only men can experience hair loss! This misconception is one of the reasons why hair loss is such an emotionally taxing experience for women of all ages. Bald men are well represented in the media and popular culture, but bald women are not. It is estimated that more than 50% of women will experience noticeable hair loss at some point in their lives. 

Hair Loss is a Sign of Age 

Just as hair loss is associated with older men, hair loss is often associated with older women and postmenopausal women. The truth is, hair loss can affect women of all ages! While men tend to lose hair at their hairline, women can experience thinning and balding in many different forms. It isn’t uncommon for teenagers and women in their early twenties to experience hair loss or hair thinning. 

A Shower Drain Full of Hair is a Bad Sign 

Did you know that it’s normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs in a day? If you notice that you’re shedding more hair than usual, you may have a condition called telogen effluvium. Excessive hair shedding is alarming, but in most cases, it is only a temporary condition. Telogen effluvium occurs after a stressful event or traumatic occurrence. In most cases, the hair will restore to its former health two to three months after the stressful event. 

There are No Solutions for Permanent Hair Loss 

If you have permanent hair loss, you’re not alone! Women experience permanent hair loss for countless reasons, from medical history to genetics. At Wigs and Hair Solutions, we’re committed to helping women with all kinds of hair loss and thinning, including permanent hair loss. Our experienced stylists can help you find a wig or hair topper that fits your style and your needs. Are you ready to learn more?
