  1. 50% of women suffering from hair loss falls under the category of genetic hair loss, also referred to as androgenetic alopecia. Women suffering from genetic hair loss will see a loss of hair volume throughout with hair loss at the top of the head being the most prominent. Hair loss happens because of miniaturization a process where follicles shrink and gets smaller with each new hair growth cycle
  2. Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease which causes patchy hair loss. Alopecia areata develops when the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign substances causing your own immune system to attack your hair follicles, eventually, the follicles reduce in size and stop producing hair. Alopecia areata is easy to recognize as the hair loss pattern is distinctively circular.
  3. Women who goes through a traumatic event may suffer from a hair loss condition known as telogen effluvium. A traumatic event is any event that causes the person to be extremely stressed, for example: Child birth, dengue, major operation or even a death of a loved one. With telogen effluvium, hair starts falling 2-4 months after the traumatic event, not immediately!
