Female Hair Loss-What Causes It?


Our hair goes through resting and growing phases.  At any one time approximately 90% of the hair on your head is in the growing phase and the other 10% of the hair on your scalp will be in the resting a phase. The resting hair will eventually fall out after a few months.

These fallen hairs will be replaced with new hairs. That is why you will experience the shedding of hair on a daily basis this applies to both men and women. This hair shedding is a part of the normal cycle and is nothing to be concerned about, unless of course that shedding becomes excessive.

If you are having excessive hair loss one of the first things to do is to check what state of heath you are in. There could be something physical that is causing more than normal shedding. It doesn’t take long to get overall hair thinning if shedding is excessive and persistent.
