Hair loss… on a woman? It’s happening to increasing numbers of us – and it eats away at your femininity like an acid

Hair Expert and Author Toni Love Presents Third Annual Toni Love Hair Loss and Business Conference

My smile is big and my make-up perfect but, as always, my thin hair and 4in bald patch spoil my look. I started life with hair so bushy my father used to say I looked like the American comedian Harpo Marx. But in the Seventies – when I was 16 and long, straight hair was in fashion – I took the fateful step of having it straightened at a local salon. Bald truth: Wendy today, left, and right, after hair transplant surgery seven years ago I had a terrible reaction to the chemicals they used, suddenly feeling as if my scalp was on fire. My hair fell out in big clumps, leaving it thin and sparse, and I was horrified to be told the damage was irreversible. I spent a fortune consulting a trichologist, who informed me the hair-straightening debacle had triggered pattern baldness. I’d inherited the risk of this from my father, who was balding by the age of 25.

Female Hair Loss Tackled Ahead of Autumn Party Season

This may be easier for women because inherited hair loss ( androgenetic alopecia ) causes a general thinning that is usually not as severe as it is in men. Hair sprays, dyes, and perms can help make the hair appear fuller. In women with inherited hair loss, hair care and the occasional use of grooming products, hair sprays, hair color, teasing, permanents, or frequent washing will not increase hair loss. But if your hair loss is caused by hair care, then perms and dyes may contribute to more hair loss. Recommended Related to Hair Loss See All Male Pattern Baldness Topics
