WHY ISN’T ANYONE TALKING ABOUT FEMALE HAIR LOSS?

When you hear the words hair loss, what comes to mind? For most, they think of middle-aged men with a receding hairline or comb over. And while men might feel self-conscious about their thinning hair, it isn’t really considered that big of a deal. It has become more acceptable for men to experience this disease while society has expected women to keep their concerns to themselves. But the reality is 40% of American hair loss sufferers are women and it can seriously affect one's confidence, self-image, and emotional well-being.

Female hair loss, like men’s, is caused by a genetic predisposition for baldness. It is triggered by dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is derived from testosterone. DHT is the enemy of hair follicles because it shrinks them and makes it impossible for healthy hair to survive. 

Beware that there are many myths about female hair loss! Though Female Pattern Baldness is the most common reason for hair loss in women, there are other causes:

  • The body experiences a traumatic event

  • Extreme stress

  • Childbirth

  • Malnutrition

  • Infection

  • Chemotherapy

  • Too tight hairstyles

  • Oral contraceptives

  • Genetics

  • Menopause

But don’t despair; there is help out there. If you are a woman experiencing hair loss, there is a natural, dermatologist-formulated topical formula that helps slow shedding and even stimulate growth. Learn more about Revivogen's 3-Step regimen that has an 88% success rate.
