Research surveys state that 30 million American women are struggling hard to cope with a problem of hair loss that even modern medicine can hardly begin to cure and that society is reluctant to accept.

Female hair loss has been a taboo from ancient days since it affects her beauty and personality. Dermatologists say that girls lose hair even as they enter into adulthood. It has become an inevitable fashion of modern women, even in their thirties, to wear a wig or hairpiece of some sort. They even manage to keep her baldness the greatest secret from the man she has dated long term.

Reasons for hair loss

1) Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicinal system, says that imbalance in the three humors (Doshas) causes hair loss. According to this system, excess pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis causes hair loss. Hence, individuals who have excess pitta in their system are likely to lose their hair early in life, or have prematurely thin or gray hair.

2) Lifestyle changes are the main reasons for hair loss both in men and women. Most of these men tolerate the problem. But it makes most of the women depressed and causes further problems and hair loss.

3) Heredity has an important role in hair loss. Some women inherit hair thinning which is otherwise called androgenetic alopecia that is caused by the class of male hormones called androgens. Normally this androgen is blocked and controlled by estrogen that secretes in women.

4) Of course, age affects millions of women with hair loss. Especially, when women enter into menopause stage, they lose the protection of the hormone estrogen which blocks the effect of androgens that cause hair loss.

5) Modern diet and lifestyle affects normal hair growth. Modern fast food, chemicals and preservatives added in foods, medicines taken for various diseases, such birth control pills and diuretics, affect hair growth.

6) Hormonal changes due to various reasons, stress that has become a part of modern lifestyle, poor nutrition, autoimmune illness, effects of global warming, and radiation treatment that has become very common today are some of the other causes for hair loss.
