I have female pattern baldness. Can it be treated?
In my teen years, hair stylists would always tell me, “Wow, you’ve got beautiful hair.” But everything changed when I turned 27 as I found myself pulling more and more tangles out of my brush and strands from the drain.
My strands got thinner, parting line widened, and my ponytail shrunk to the thickness of a pen. The compliments stopped and the worry began. Once a lustrous dark curtain had now become a transparent sheath. I spent hours staring at my scalp in the mirror, parting and re-parting my hair to see which side looked fuller. I drenched my head with volumizing sprays, tried salon treatments, and changed shampoos for hair fall control – but my hair kept getting thinner.
For me, like a peacock’s brilliant feathers, hair is an important part of my personality. I always liked experimenting haircuts and different hairstyles to get a new look but now with little hair on my head, I couldn’t do anything except hiding the scanty spots.
I stopped meeting my boyfriend in the fear that my hair loss will gross him out! Needless to say, the relationship didn’t last long, as I began to lose my sense of trust and self-confidence that he could find me attractive in this condition. When I discussed the issue with my friends, they made a judgment about me being ‘self-obsessed’ for the looks.
Finally, I consulted a doctor and I am glad I did that. Instead of dismissing my concerns as mere vanity, he took up my case and told me that it is ‘female pattern baldness’ – one of the most common types of hair loss after male pattern baldness.
He discussed in detail about my hair loss condition, asked about my medical history, family health, lifestyle, diet, and recommended a customized female hair loss treatment. Surprisingly, it worked well for my hair.
So, if any of the above scares you because you recognize the female baldness symptoms, don’t fret. The key to successful regrowth is medical treatment for female pattern baldness.
Treating Female Pattern Baldness
Each day if you just dwell in denial, you’ll only lose your precious time and locks. The more hair you lose, the less likely it is to grow back. Therefore, seek out trichologist if you see more than 50-100 strands of hair falling in a day.
Trichologists evaluate the extent of your hair loss and its chronology, followed by a certain lab and other tests. The duration of female hair loss treatment depends on the stage of your hair loss and other factors, such as the health of your hair or scalp.
Homeopathic medicine for female hair loss treatment shows good long-term response and gets to the root cause. PCOS is very effectively treated with homeopathy. Stress is another cause for female pattern baldness which is very effectively treated with homeopathy.
Homeopathy not only treats the physical complaints but also restores the equilibrium of the body. Homeopathic treatment aims at stabilizing the condition in which a female comes in with, treating the underlying cause, saving the existing roots and postponing baldness naturally without any side-effects.
The next treatment is aesthetic treatment which helps to enhance the volume and density of your existing hair (results may vary for individuals). For example: if your hair has thinned because of iron-deficiency anemia or due to some nutritional deficiency, then aesthetic therapies like GroHair or STMcell are very helpful. If it is due to an underlying disorder like thyroid disorder or diabetes then the aesthetic treatment result may vary case to case.
Combination treatment of homeopathy and aesthetic give best treatment outcomes for female pattern baldness. So consult your nearest trichologist and know which treatment suits you best.
