Try ReTress to Reverse the Effects of Female Pattern Hair Loss
Society mistakenly perceives hair loss to be a strictly male disease. Female hair loss is a 'HIDDEN EPIDEMIC'. Thinning female hair loss is often 'DIFFUSE' throughout the entire scalp vs. concentrated like male pattern baldness. For this reason, female hair loss can be less obvious at the beginning.
40% of all hair loss sufferers in America are women.
50% of women will experience noticeable hair loss by age of 60.
100% of women are emotionally devastated when hair loss occurs.
In a 1993 Glamour magazine survey, over half of the women stated “If my hair looks good, I look attractive no matter what I’m wearing or how I look otherwise,” and “If my hair isn't right, nothing else can make me feel that I look good” (Etcoff 1999). A women’s hair is central to her femininity, beauty, and sexuality.
While hair loss can be distressing for males, a social acceptance and understanding of this phenomenon generally allows normal psychosocial functioning. In contrast, Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) is not expected and less understood by society generating feelings of confusion and distress for the woman. A study has shown that 52% of women were very-to-extremely upset by their hair loss, compared with 28% of men (Cash 1992; Cash et al 1993). This distress results in lower self-esteem, a poor body image, feelings of guilt, problems with sleep and day-to-day function, and restriction of social activities.
