Hair loss is commonly thought of as a problem that only men need to worry about. However, plenty of women all throughout Italy are also suffering from hair loss, and it can be for a variety of reasons. 

The Starks center, located Milan, is capable of helping both men and women in Italy find the perfect hair loss solutions. 

Let’s take a look at some of the things that could be the cause of women’s hair loss, as well as some possible solutions. 


Tight Hairstyles 

If you are a woman who’s experiencing some hair loss, the cause might not be medical in nature. 

Tight hairstyles that pull on the roots of your hair like ponytails or braids can cause hair to fall out. This is called traction alopecia, and is usually temporary. 

The remedy is often simply wearing your hair loosely for a while to remove the strain. However, sometimes the hair follicles can be damaged by tight hairstyles, and in this case the hair won’t grow back on its own. 


Diet and Vitamins

While many people actively pursue losing weight, whether it’s for looks or for health, rapid weight loss can cause hair loss as well. It’s important to lose weight in a healthy manner that includes a balanced diet and exercise, as pushing yourself too hard can also hurt your full head of hair. 

Additionally, vitamin deficiency can cause hair to fall out or become brittle and break. This is also something that happens when you’re using a restrictive diet to lose weight. 

It’s important to eat vitamin-rich foods like fruits and vegetables to maintain bodily health. After all, the hair is an extension of our bodies, and how healthy we are in one can affect the other. 


Anagen Effluvium Hair Loss

Certain toxic substances, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other specific medications, may cause what is known as anagen effluvium hair loss. 

This type of hair loss can occur all over the body and is often sudden. The hair that is affected by this is hair that is in its growth stage. 

While hair lost in this manner will usually grow back, it is possible that the toxic exposure that caused the hair loss will also damage the hair follicles themselves. When the hair follicles are damaged, they can no longer grow hair. 


Telogen Effluvium Hair Loss

Telogen effluvium hair loss is the result of physical impacts on the body. For instance, extreme physical stress or shock to the body like surgery, anemia, or an illness, can cause temporary hair loss. 

Extreme emotional stress like mental illness or grieving the death of a loved one is also capable of causing telogen effluvium hair loss. 

And, of course, major hormonal changes caused by pregnancy or menopause, or even birth control pills, can similarly cause hair to fall out. 

This type of hair loss is temporary and will almost always grow back. Many of the causes are things that all women in Italy have gone through or will eventually go through. 


FPHL (Female Pattern Hair Loss)

While female pattern hair loss is much less common than male pattern hair loss, it is still a very real phenomenon that many women in Italy suffer from. 

Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent FPHL. Its cause is genetic and you are either programmed for it or not based on your family’s history. 

Factors like hormonal changes due to aging or menopause can even make female pattern hair loss worse by enhancing the symptoms. 

However, there is always hope.
