Although hair loss may seem like a more prominent problem in men, women are nearly as likely to lose, or have thinning hair. It happens to about 50% of women. Most women notice it in their 50s or 60s, but it can happen at any age (even during teenage years) and for a variety of reasons.

Tips for prevention

It is best to treat thinning hair early, as soon as you notice you are losing more hair than is normal for you. Men who experience thinning hair at a young age gain many benefits from treating the problem early, including a boost in self-esteem.

Increase intake of protein as well as fruits and vegetables daily


Avoid brushing the hair too vigorously

If your hair is thinning, try giving it a break from harsh chemicals and hot styling methods. Cut back on permanents and hair dyes, and replace hair products containing alcohol with those that do not contain it. Let your hair dry without using a blow dryer, and stop using hot rollers, flat irons and curling irons for several weeks.


If you visit your doctor about your thinning hair, discuss the types of medications you are taking. Some medications can lead to hair loss.
