Video: What causes hair loss in women and what are the treatment options?

hair loss in womenArticle by Ceri Wheeldon

Hair loss is mostly associated with men, but it is a condition increasingly suffered by women, althoughly rarely discussed, especially women over 50.

I asked trichologist Sara Allison, who specialises in female hair loss, to talk us through the reasons why some women lose their hair, and treatment options, including lifestyle and changes in nutrition that we can make to ensure optimum hair health in our 50s and beyond.

Video: Interview with trichologist Sara Allison to discuss female hair loss


In this video interview we cover:

What are the main causes of hair loss?

How can you maximise the condition of your hair?

At what age do women typically notice hair loss?

How much hair loss is considered normal and at what point should women see someone/take action.

Should you see GP in first instance or go straight to trichologist?

If someone sees a trichologist is it typically just one appointment required or a series of appointments/treatments?

What are the treatment options available?

What nutritional supplements should we consider to avoid/treat hair loss?

How long will it take to notice a difference?

What impact does colouring hair have on hair loss ?
