Female Hair Loss and Thinning
Hair loss or thinning hair can be distressing, particularly for women. For many women, hair is a big part of their identity, so if you’re experiencing hair loss or thinning due to illness or stress it can be upsetting. Not only can it result in a loss of confidence, but it can also have a significant impact on your quality of life and your mental health. If you are experiencing female hair loss, you may find that you no longer want to leave the house or socialise, and may no longer participate in things you once loved, for fear of being judged.
It is important to know however, that hair loss and thinning hair in women is not especially uncommon; many women experience a loss of hair for a variety of reasons, including growing older. At The Hair Alchemist, we look at the underlying cause of your hair loss in order to create a bespoke hair replacement system to help you get your confidence back!
Causes of Hair Loss in Women
Female hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons and varies in severity. Whilst some hair loss simply results in a thin appearance, in more severe cases hair loss can lead to baldness. Most people lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day; those suffering from certain conditions lose significantly more.
It is natural to lose more hair as we grow older however, hair loss can occur at any age. Some of the most common causes of female hair loss include:
- Illness such as alopecia or trichotillomania
- Iron deficiency
- Cancer treatment
- Weight loss
- Hormonal imbalances
If you feel that you’re losing more hair than you should be, or that your hair has become much thinner than usual, it’s best to speak to your GP so you can get to the root of the cause. At The Hair Alchemist, we work with expert Trichologists who are able to diagnose conditions related to the hair and scalp. If necessary, we will refer you to a specialist who may be able to help treat your condition. We also offer hair extensions suitable for thin hair and hair loss, as well as integrated hair systems and wigs.
Female Hair Loss Treatment
In many cases, female hair loss is temporary and the hair will grow back when the root of the issue is addressed. For example, if you are experiencing hair loss due to stress, ensuring that you look after yourself, reducing the amount of stress in your life and taking steps to unwind should allow your hair to grow back. If your hair loss is due to a medical condition, age or as a result of cancer treatment however, this may not be the case.
If the underlying cause of the hair loss is something that can be addressed, such as an iron deficiency or hormonal imbalance, your GP may be able to prescribe medication or vitamins to stop the increased hair loss. Where the underlying cause is related to age, illness or cancer treatment, there may not be anything that can be medically prescribed.
Whether you are waiting for treatment to begin working, or you are looking for alternative ways to get your hair back, hair replacement and hair extension systems may be the answer.
Hair Extensions for Thin Hair and Hair Loss
Hair extensions to thicken hair and hair extensions for hair loss are things we often get asked for. Here at the Hair Alchemist, we have extensive experience in creating hair systems for those suffering from hair loss and thinning hair. We work with partner salons, and a team of Trichologists, so that we are able to refer clients to specialists if we do not feel our hair systems are suitable, due to the stability of hair.
We carry out an extensive consultation appointment looking at the condition of the hair and the scalp in order to create a bespoke hair system to suit your particular needs. We offer private consultations to make our clients feel as comfortable as possible whilst at the salon. During your consultation, we will advise you on the most appropriate hair extension attachment method for you and give you a quote.
We create all of our hair extensions using Russian or Slavic hair for the best quality hair system. Russian hair extensions are the best quality in the world. The traditional Russian diet means the hair is strong, light and glossy. Due to this, we are able to create integrated hair systems that look completely natural and help our clients to leave the salon feeling amazing!
Hair Extensions for Alopecia
Everyone’s hair is different so the type of hair extensions we recommend will vary, but as a general rule, our miniature micro ring hair extensions tend to be the best extension of choice for those suffering from conditions such as Alopecia, as they are least damaging hair extensions for fine hair.
Miniature micro ring hair extensions are essentially a smaller and much more discrete version of the classic micro ring attachment. They are small metal loops which are threaded through the extension and the natural hair, then clamped shut in order to secure.
As one of the smallest and most undetectable hair extensions available, we are able discretely apply them to even extremely fine hair. Their comfortable and seamless design means anyone can enjoy the benefits of having hair extensions without the need for adhesives and bonds.
Hair extensions are not always appropriate for those with female hair loss. If this is the case, we also create beautiful, bespoke wigs. All of our wigs are made using the finest hair, with each strand individually knotted into high definition lace. Our team then expertly colour the hair to create your perfect look.
Our wigs can be treated as normal hair; curl, straighten, throw it up in a bun…whatever you like! Once your wig has been created, a member of our team will talk you through how to look after your wig to keep your new hair looking amazing for longer.
We understand you may be nervous about attending your consultation appointment however try not to worry. We work with and train some of the leading salons in the UK on female hair loss. We pride ourselves on our luxury service therefore you will always be greeted with professionalism and discretion at our Harrogate salon.
