Losing your hair as a woman? No way! Only men go bald and have thinning hair lines, right? Totally, 100% WRONG!
Hair loss in women is exceedingly common. In fact, 50% of women will experience hair loss at some point in their life. But still, it can seem like you're the only one. Maybe that's because us women are more skilled (or more influenced by beauty standards, however you want to look at it) at hiding it than men.
Hair loss in females most commonly begins in your 40's, but it can occur at any age. Androgenic Alopecia is the most common form of hair loss that women in this age group experience. Androgenic Alopecia is a gradual thinning of hair, mostly on the crown, and widening part line.
What can you do to prevent hair loss in your 40's?
As Androgenic Alopecia is a genetic form of hair loss, unfortunately most preventative measures aren't very effective. Make sure you're taking good care of your hair. This means using high quality, salon-grade products, gently brushing your hair and not overdoing the high, tight up-dos.
