Hair Loss in Women Over 50
Where male hair loss is expected, even accepted, hair loss in women is much more taboo. Despite the stigma, female hair loss is actually relatively common. Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) affects many women over the age of 50, and is generally characterized by hair thinning on the top of the head.
For women, hair loss, especially when over 50, can happen for a wide variety of reasons. The way that you wear your hair, such as in a bun or ponytail, can put stress on the hair. Diet can also play a role, particularly if you are not consuming healthy foods. With age, hair loss can worsen with menopause along with stress or trauma. Medical conditions that can lead to acute hair loss in women include diabetes, anemia, and thyroid disease.
With all of these potential factors, a diagnosis of a specific underlying reason can be difficult to obtain. Furthermore, until recently, there were very few treatments that could adequately make up for hair loss in women, let alone ones that do not require upkeep for the rest of your life, such as hair loss foam.
Many women, when faced with hair loss later in life, do not know where to turn. To relieve this stressful problem regardless of age or level of hair loss, the experts at Hairline Ink have perfected scalp micropigmentation. This solution involves applying small amounts of natural pigments to the scalp to create the appearance of a full and healthy head of hair. The pigment is custom blended to perfectly match the color of your hair and skin, and placed in tiny dots of varying size to replicate the look of hair follicles. It works with your existing hair to fill in bald or thinning patches or restore hairlines. Because women often do not lose hair entirely but instead experience a thinning along the top of the head, they are ideal candidates for scalp micropigmentation.
Scalp micropigmentation has no side effects and can be accomplished in just a handful of treatments. Hairline Ink is here to help you restore your hair to looking full and natural.
