Top 10 Reasons for Female Hair Loss

Both men and women can suffer from hair loss but women, in general, experience excessive hair shedding. It is important to identify the real reason behind hair fall to be able to treat it properly. Below is the top 10 reasons for hair loss in females. Read on and find out which affects you so you can apply the appropriate solution to maintain healthy hair.

1. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.

This is a hormonal disorder and the imbalance affects your entire body. You may notice growth of hair in some parts of your body and hair fall in your scalp.

2. Anemia.

Because of low iron levels in your blood when you have anemia, you have low hemoglobin which implies less oxygen in your body. If not enough oxygen is sent to your hair follicles, your hair strands will be weak and will break easily which will result to hair fall.

3. Pregnancy.

This is again due to the hormonal changes that happened in your body. during pregnancy, your estrogen is at its peak so you’ll enjoy full, luscious hair. But after delivery, your hormones go back to their normal phase and may result to hair fall. You may be surprised at the sudden shedding of hair and the amount of hair falling out from your scalp. But this is temporary and hair growth will return to normal a few weeks after delivery.

4. Protein deficiency.

Keratin is a type of protein and it is present in our hair strands. If your diet lacks protein-rich food, expect your hair to become brittle and fall prematurely.

5. Losing weight too quickly.

Extreme weight loss from crash diet can affect the growth of your hair. You deprive your body of essential nutrients when you ban certain food on your dailymenu. Vitamins A, B, C and D are important in proper hair growth and if you don’t get enough of these, expect your hair to be weak and they will shed.

6. Stress.

Women are more emotional than men and women tend to feel more than anyone else. They get stressed by the simple things and they get easily anxious or worried. Again, stress affects hormones which in turns affect hair growth. Stress is believed to speed up hair loss.

7. Hairstyles and chemical treatments.

Women subject their hair to more chemical treatments and these treatments include application of chemicals that affect the health of hair. Too much heat can weaken the hair shaft. Ammonia used in hair dyes can lift up hair cuticle for color to be absorbed and this can weaken your hair cuticle. Also, the tension from tight hairstyles can trigger alopecia.

8. Hypothyroidism.

This is a hormone disorder more common to women. An underactive thyroid causes your hair, nails and skin to become more brittle hence they will break easily.

9. Brushing hair when wet.

Women are guilty of this. Hair is significantly weaker when it’s wet and brushing it in this condition will surely increase breakage. Wet hair strands cannot handle tugging and tension so they stretch until they break.

10. Lupus.

This autoimmune disease that attacks the healthy tissues in the body affects women of childbearing age. Mild hair loss is experienced by women with lupus but the condition may become severe where rashes and patches on the scalp come out.

Now that you know the top 10 factors that contribute to female hair loss, be sure you make the necessary actions to identify the cause of your hair shedding or hair loss problem. It isn’t enough that you follow the most recommended tips to prevent hair loss. Better identify the source first so you get to prevent the condition from worsening.

ONYC HAIR – NEW BEAUTY TREND? HEISTS OF COSTLY HAIR EXTENSIONS

ONYC Hair Extensions

Brashae’s Beauty Supply is the fourth of its kind to get burglarized for high-quality hair extensions in eight days. Owner Don Hilliard estimates that he lost about $10,000 in merchandise on Thursday.

Don Hilliard’s west Houston store has nine surveillance cameras, a motion detector, bars on his windows and other security measures.

You’d think he was protecting precious jewels or luxury cars. His business on Westheimer actually just sells beauty products, though one of the items has beem deemed a high-value target for thieves: hair extensions.

Despite the security efforts, thieves on Thursday stole what Hilliard estimates to be $10,000 worth of hair extensions.

Hilliard’s store is one of four businesses selling hair extensions in Houston burglarized in a little more than a week. In this recent upswing of the thefts, stores are losing thousands of dollars in merchandise. Hair extensions can cost up to $180 per bag. The hair with the hefty tag, professionals say, is an extension made from real human hair with the cuticles intact. The locks last longer and look more natural.

One recent hair heist netted $40,000 of merchandise – and that store has been robbed six times. And it’s not just a simple shoplifter stuffing a purse with the product: The weave thieves sometimes move in packs, burglarizing businesses in groups of upwards of eight.

“It looks like it’s starting to escalate again, so we’re going to take another good look at it,” Houston police Sgt. Frank Quinn said about the recent trend.

Houston dealt with surges of hair extension thefts in 2012. Quinn said thieves often sell the stolen goods out of the trunks of cars. Others hawk them online.

High-end theft

The afternoon following his robbery Hilliard walked to the back of his Brashae’s Beauty Supply store, past rows of hair products and extensions, and pulled away a piece of plywood to reveal a small hole in the drywall. Early that morning, two men broke into his business by busting the lock of the empty building next door and cutting a hole in the adjoining wall. Entering through the opening, the men then crawled on the floor and filled trash bags with hair extensions.

Hilliard said Thursday was the fourth time his Westheimer store had been hit.

“If they want it, they’re gonna get it,” he said.

But now he’s had enough. He is going to stop selling high-quality extensions at that location because they are the real draw for hair thieves.

“That’s all they took was high-end,” he said, gesturing to the empty hooks where the extensions used to hang.

Quinn said thieves probably latch onto hair theft because they know they can get in and out quickly.

“It’s easy to handle, and it’s easy to get away with,” he said.

Don Hilliard said he is going to stop selling high-quality extensions at the Westheimer location of his Brashae’s Beauty Supply store after it was hit by burglars Thursday for the fourth time since its opening. “Is the world becoming so materialistic that you have to break in just to steal a pack of hair?” he asked.

Don Hilliard said he is going to stop selling high-quality extensions at the Westheimer location of his Brashae’s Beauty Supply store after it was hit by burglars Thursday for the fourth time since its opening. “Is the world becoming so materialistic that you have to break in just to steal a pack of hair?” he asked.

At 2 a.m. July 30, hair extensions and cash were stolen from Beauty Sensation at Beechnut in southwest Houston. Security camera footage showed as many as eight suspects in two white Ford F-250s descending on the store.

‘Already gone’

One of the trucks backed into the storefront at a high speed in reverse, crashing through the door, according to authorities.

The thieves threw items into the bed of the truck, including more than 200 hair extensions, said John Cannon, spokesman for the Houston Police Department.

The action was over quickly, said Ronecia Pierre, manager of the Beechnut location, but the suspects still did a lot of damage.

“They weren’t in there maybe but two minutes, and by the time we got there they were already gone,” said Deneen Jacobs, general manager for both locations of the beauty shop.

Hours of cleanup

Pierre said there was hair, glass and chemicals all over the floor, requiring hours of cleanup. She arrived at the store a couple of hours after everyone started cleaning, but it still was “a disaster.”

Beauty Sensation had been robbed one time before, about four years ago, Jacobs said. After threatening people with a gun, the thieves just took a few purses from customers and left, Jacobs said.

This time, Jacobs estimated that $40,000 to $50,000 in cash and merchandise was taken.

Then suspects stole about $40,000 worth of merchandise on Saturday from K Y Fashion using a similar technique, said owner Woong Kang.

A car described as a white Dodge Dakota truck backed into the front of the shop at West Mount Houston in north Houston, Cannon said. Kang said damages to his store will cost him almost $20,000. The shop has been robbed six times, Kang said.

And the day before the burglary at Brashae’s, Sense Beauty Supply at Veterans Memorial in north Houston was hit.

Multiple suspects broke in through the rear of the store and stole hair extensions and wigs, Cannon said. The size of a large, gaping hole in the brick wall at the store indicates a vehicle was used to gain entry.

Hair supply store owners said they are tired of the stealing. Hilliard, owner of Brashae’s, said criminals should check the classifieds and get a job instead of selling his stuff.

“Is the world becoming so materialistic that you have to break in just to steal a pack of hair?” Hilliard said.
