Causes of Hair Loss and Hair Thinning in Women
The most common reason for thinning hair is androgenetic alopecia — also known as hereditary hair loss or female pattern hair loss.
Getting to The Root of the problem
Thinning hair can be caused by a number of factors like hormones and age, but the problem is usually hereditary. Androgenetic alopecia is a condition that causes your hair follicles to shrink over time. So while your hair may still be growing, the quality of that hair will become smaller, finer, and less visible — until eventually some follicles will no longer produce any new hairs at all.
THE HAIR GROWTH CYCLE
Your hair growth cycle follows 3 distinct phases. Understanding this process is the first step towards healthier, thicker, fuller hair.
