Hair loss is not just an issue that affects men. Men usually suffer from baldness, but about a third of women suffer from other hair loss types like shedding and receding hair loss. So if you think you might be experiencing hair loss, you’re not alone! Our experts at Parker Trichology want to help you out with this guide on leading causes of thinning hair in women. 


Shedding occurs when you lose about 50 to 100 strands of hair in a day. It can be more when certain circumstances occur. Things like stressful life events or even changing your birth control are common triggers of excessive shedding.

The best way to combat shedding is self-care. Keeping track of your mental health, taking care of your body, and managing stress levels are great examples of this. 


Usually, stress on your hair is the culprit for this kind of damage. Your hair might be breaking in the middle or a few inches from the scalp. The science behind this is that the protein in your hair is severely damaged, causing it to be weak. 

Giving your hair a break is the best solution to this hair loss. Stay away from bleach, dyes, and heat until you see some growth and overall better texture. 


Like we said before, baldness is not a common form of hair loss for women. Baldness is usually caused by a medical condition called Alopecia. Alopecia is a condition where the immune system attacks the hair follicles and should be diagnosed as quickly as possible. That way, you and your doctor can get you to the next steps and maybe slow the process. Occasionally, patients experience hair loss around their eyebrows and eyelashes as well. 

Treatment for Thinning Hair in Women

Before you buy an expensive amount of biotin thinking, it will cure your hair loss and hear us out. This supplement is most effective for nail growth, not hair. Only a substantial natural deficiency would cause biotin to be effective for hair loss, which is rare. 

Most of these forms of hair loss, patience, taking care of hair, and improving your health are the best treatment. Others might require some extra attention, but you don’t need to worry about that. The Parker Trichology Centre specializes in treating hair loss and returning your confidence! So feel free to give us a call and set up an appointment with our experts.
