Is hair loss common among women? Hair loss in women is surprisingly common. An estimated one in four UK women experience hair loss. While hair loss is more common for women in their 30s or 40s, it can start as early as your 20s.
What causes hair loss in women? Most of hair loss cases in women are caused by a condition called female pattern hair loss, which results from a combination of genetics, hormone levels and aging. Other causes of hair loss in women include extreme stress, pregnancy, and certain medications, all of which are temporary causes of hair loss. There are also some diseases that can result in hair loss in women.
What is Female Pattern Hair loss? Female pattern hair loss, known as androgenetic alopecia, is an inherited condition that affects a woman’s hair growth cycle. It gradually shortens the time that hair follicles spend actively growing and over time, follicles become dormant. So while your hair may still be growing, the quality of that hair will change: getting smaller, finer, and less visible, until follicles become inactive and new hair is no longer produced. Women with female pattern hair loss experience a general hair loss, with the most extensive loss occurring on the top of the head and along the parting.
What is Minoxidil? Minoxidil is the active ingredient in REGAINE® for Women. The only scientifically proven treatment for female pattern hair loss.It is scientifically proven to help stop and even reverse hair loss. It works by increasing the supply of blood and nutrients to your hair follicles helping to strengthen the existing hairs and encouraging them to grow.
What can I expect when I am using REGAINE® for Women foam? Be sure you apply once a day, every day, and results can be seen in as early as 12 weeks. As part of this process, it is not uncommon to see a temporary increase in hair loss during weeks 2 to week 6 of use, as older hairs are shed to make way for newer actively growing hair. Hair growth may be soft and downy at the start but should eventually become the same as normal hair. Be patient, it takes time to regrow hair. The best way to see results is to stick to it, and to apply to the areas of hair loss once a day, every day.
