Hair transplant will not be an option for women

Even though 55% of all women will experience some type of hair loss according to a study performed by Quan Q Dinh and Rodney Sinclair of the department of dermatology in Australia, the treatment options which are available for women are in the vast minority when compared to the options available for men.

At least 25% of women will experience a condition known as pattern hair loss. This is similar to male pattern balding but it can be slightly different in the way that it appears for women. Hair loss for women mostly begins from the sides of the hairline and along the temporal region. This can make the process of actually placing hair transplants or donor hair in this region very difficult.

In most cases donor hair in a mail transplant is harvested from the back of their scalp but the way that many women experience thinning hair means that hair follicles can thin all over the scalp. This makes it extremely difficult for a doctor to actually find an area for which the hair follicles can be great donor quality.

Without assured results the idea of a hair transplant for women is something that isn't advisable. There is simply no guarantees that the donor quality of care will work or that more balding areas won’t occur in the future.

The good news is there are some promising options for women in hair loss through the use of platelet rich plasma treatments. In this instance blood is taken from other areas of the body and injected back into the scalp to promote improved hair loss. This procedure can be done every three months and it shows promising results.

In many cases women throughout their 30s and 40s are beginning to experience hair loss is a direct result of malnutrition as well as stress. Focusing on a healthy diet that includes broccoli, spinach, fish, egg whites and making sure that hair is washed with mild shampoo at least one to two times a week will help to improve hair growth.

It's also important to mention that Keratin hair treatments and other chemical spot treatments can increase the chances of balding and thinning hair.

Keep some of these ideas in mind and remember that although currently hair transplants are not a great option for women, there are some promising therapies emerging.
