Many women experience noticeable hair loss in their lifetime. We aim to educate about hair loss and empower women like you to find the perfect solution.
Female Hair Loss
In a society where long, thick hair is seen as a symbol of femininity, beauty and health, losing your hair can be disruptive and upsetting. However, around one-third of women globally experience hair loss at some point in their lives. This may come as a surprise to you as the issue receives far less attention than male hair loss in the media and popular culture.
For many women, hair loss can bring about feelings of shame, anxiety and depression. At Look Natural Hair Restoration we strive to be a part of the solution. We help women to achieve the hair that they desire so that they can go back to living their lives free of worry and stress.
So let’s explore the causes of hair loss for women as well as the bespoke treatments that we recommend.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women
There is a wide range of causes for female hair loss. Let’s explore these below:
Female Pattern Hair Loss: Also referred to as androgenic alopecia, female pattern hair loss is the most common cause of thinning hair and affects over 30 million women in America alone. This genetic condition is caused by testosterone, which is converted to DHT by the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. DHT binds to receptors on a hair follicle and gradually turns the follicle off. At first, the follicle produces finer and thinner hair until eventually, it stops growing hair entirely. Although women have much lower levels of testosterone than men, it’s still enough to result in female pattern hair loss.
Telogen Effluvium: To fully understand this one we need some background. Hair follicles go through cycles; a growth phase (anagen), a resting phase (catogen) and a shedding phase (telogen). Significant stressors can result in hair follicles suddenly shifting from the anagen to the telogen phase, causing the hair to shed and thin. This is referred to as Telogen Effluvium. Stressors include childbirth, surgery, illness and stress. This can be a temporary disorder but it can also result in permanent hair loss, even if the inciting event is resolved.
Hormonal causes: Hormones can also be responsible for temporary hair loss. During pregnancy, an increased number of hair follicles go into the resting phase. This usually diminishes 4-5 months after pregnancy. In a similar way, hormonal birth control can cause hair follicles to enter the resting phase too soon and too long, which results in thinning hair.
Medical conditions or medication: There are a few different medical conditions that cause hair loss. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), thyroid problems, anemia and autoimmune diseases are amongst a few of them.
Products and treatment: Many women subject their hair to rough treatment, harsh chemicals and hairstyles that pull at the follicles tightly. This can damage them over time, creating thinner and less healthy hair. It’s an unfortunate paradox – in trying to make our hair look great, we damage it and make it look worse!

During the past years I have had two hair procedures with Dr Glen Ross. Not only was I completely satisfied with excellent results, but found him to be very understanding, caring, and possessed a demeanor that made me feel totally sure I was making the right decision. For anyone who's thinking of having a procedure you cannot go wrong with Dr. Ross. I myself will be having an additional procedure with him in the near future and can count on complete satisfaction in Dr. Ross's abilities.

I've had a great experience with Dr. Ross and his staff. Prior to the procedure, they were always willing to meet with me and answer any questions I had. This calmed any worries I had about getting the procedure done. During the procedure, I felt very comfortable around Dr. Ross and his staff. They provided excellent hospitality and made the procedure more comfortable than I was expecting it would be. Two weeks after the surgery, I'm still in constant communication with Dr. Ross and everything is looking good. I'm excited to see my results in the coming months. Thank you Dr. Ross and staff.

Losing your hair is one of the most stressful things a man can go through. You feel your confidence level begin to go down, and when that happens, it's a nightmare. Finding someone you can trust is one of the hardest things, and this is why I recommend Dr Ross. He has been amazing throughout my entire process. He has extensive knowledge and experience and has the perfect bedside manner.
