Male vs. Female Hair Loss
People most often associate hair loss with men, when, in reality, women are just as susceptible to losing hair. There are actually many different causes and types of hair loss that plague society that are not in any way related to someone’s gender. In fact, men and women almost make up the same percent of hair loss sufferers in the United States.
There are a few key differences between men and women in their hair loss. Female hair loss usually begins around the ages of 45-50, though it can happen as early as a woman’s 20’s. A warning sign may be that your trips to the salon for a hair cut become less and less frequent, or you are losing more loose strands when washing your hair. In addition, the middle of your hair may seem thinner or your part may widen.
Though age is definitely a factor, women are susceptible to a number of hair loss disorders. Alopecia, hormone changes, stress, and a condition called telogen effluvium are just a few of the common causes. Losing hair can have a high emotional impact with women, as a woman’s hair is so often tied to her femininity and beauty. This is often why, if a woman does suffer from hair loss, she is often not very public about it.
Men, on the other hand, usually experience hair loss by the age of 35. You might notice a receding hairline or hair thinning around your crown. Though men lose their hair faster, the cause is very similar to women: alopecia, telogen effluvium, and stress/nutrition. While it is more socially recognized that men have hair loss, often times they may still be ridiculed or considered unattractive because of it.
