Hair Loss in Women Causes

Hair Loss in women can be caused by a number of factors. In this blog I’m going to give you a brief explanation of each of the likely causes and how they can be effectively dealt with.

Lifestyles Lead to Hair Loss

When I started losing my hair I looked for ways to stop my loss. At first all I could find was supplements and ingredients for male pattern baldness. When they showed a picture of what it looks like, a receding hairline and balding at the crown, I said that is not me. So I continued looking.

But as I continued to lose my hair I read more about ways men can lose their hair. I finally concluded that I did have male pattern baldness, but mine was more typical of female pattern baldness. Female pattern baldness is caused by the same hormone that causes male baldness, DHT (dihydrotestosterone).

The only difference between male and female pattern baldness is the way the hair is lost. Men lose their hair with this condition at the crown and receding from the forehead till it eventually meets creating a bald patch on the top of the head. Females who have this condition will generally have a thinning of the hair all across the scalp, which will usually not result in a bald patch. This is what I was experiencing, so I started using Rogaine.

Discovery Of Rogaine

Rogaine was first introduced in the 1980's to help people control their blood pressure. People who took this medicine to control their blood pressure found that they also started to grow additional hair. After several studies, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved Rogaine for use by men and women to treat hair loss caused by male or female pattern baldness.

Positive And Negative Effects

When I determined I had male pattern baldness I started using Rogaine at 5% strength. After two weeks of use, I started to get an irritation on my scalp. So I dumped the 5% strength and shifted to a 2% strength, which is approved for use by women. (Women should not use Rogaine at 5% solution because it may cause birth defects.) My irritation went away and my hair stopped falling out.

If you develop the condition of male or female pattern baldness, Rogaine will help stop your hair loss but you may need to use the 2% solution to prevent irritation to the scalp.


If you are either a man or a woman, and you are losing your hair, it may be due to male or female pattern baldness. If this is the case and you are considering using Rogaine, you may want to use the 2% solution to prevent irritation to your scalp.
