Thinning hair is a gradual process and therefore you have always a chance to reverse this process and protect your hair…But you have to take corrective measures, otherwise you may reach to the point of no return.

What is female pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia)?
Female pattern hair loss will be effect primarily affected on the top and front of the scalp. Woman with androgenic alopecia experience a gradual thinning of hair.
Almost every woman eventually develops some degree of female pattern hair loss. It can start any time after the onset of puberty, but women tend to first notice it around menopause, when hair loss typically increases. The risk rises with age, and it’s higher for women with a history of hair loss on either side of the family. Read more

What causes female pattern baldness?
Many experts say that genetics is the root cause of female pattern baldness and therefore you cannot reverse this process. I don’t think this is the case for the majority of women who are suffering from this kind of hair loss.
If I say stress could be the main reason, would you believe?
But consider these facts;
Habitual stress elevate androgen levels. When you are under stress your adrenal glands will release cortisol into your blood and as a result, you develop pimples and rough hair. Even mild anxiety is enough to raise your DHEA. So there is a link between stress and hair fall.
Excess body fat also elevates androgen levels. Excess body fat disturbs the functioning of female hormones i.e estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH)and follicle-stimulating hormone(FSH). Elevated testosterone levels block FSH and affect your menstrual cycles. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) always have elevated testosterone levels. This is the reason women with PCOS generally have hair related problems. If androgen is excess, you may likely to be affected with female pattern baldness. So there is a link between stress and hair fall.
The root cause of female pattern baldness
Many factors cause hair fall problems…Here are some of the factors;
- Iron deficiency
- Thyroid problem
- Insulin resistance
Whatever the test results show and whatever your doctor says the root cause of female pattern baldness is chronic stress. All the above problems are downstream effects of chronic stress.
Androgenic alopecia treatment
Here is the extract from Wikipedia about androgenic alopecia treatment…
Management may include simply accepting the condition. Otherwise, treatments may include minoxidil, finasteride, or hair transplant surgery. Evidence for finasteride in women, however, is poor and it may result in birth defects if taken during pregnancy. Read More
Here is the extract from Harvard.edu….
Minoxidil (Rogaine, generic versions). This drug was introduced as a treatment for high blood pressure, but people who took it noticed that they were growing hair in places where they had lost it. Research confirmed that a 2% solution of minoxidil applied directly to the scalp could stimulate hair growth. Read more
Minoxidil can be purchased without a prescription. What it does is simple. It dilates blood vessels so that your follicles receive more oxygen and nutrients and as a result, new hair will grow.
Can female baldness be reversed?
Many women ask whether male pattern hair loss reversible?
Here is the extract from hairscientists.org…Androgenetic Alopecia is non-reversible genetically determined hair loss. Androgen presence is necessary for its progression. It is genetically either:
i) dominant – a single gene is inherited.
ii) polygenic – a number of genes are inherited.
Androgenic Alopecia in women is caused by follicular miniaturisation associated with endocrine changes and increased androgen presence. Accompanying factors may include Polycystic ovarian syndrome, virilisation (and hirsutism), irregular menstruation, infertility, acne, seborrhoea oleosa.
Menopausal Alopecia (androgenic alopecia) is associated with hormone changes. As estrogen reduces, hair-follicles become increasingly vulnerable to the effects of androgen exposure. Anti-androgen therapy may reduce further hair loss. Read More
I don’t agree with the above point view fully as I said at the beginning of this article… Even the genetics can be changed with the power of belief and expectation.
Take a look at the following Huffington Post…
Here I am giving a simple tip that you can start using today and see the results soon…
A simple tip to reverse female pattern baldness:
Massage with coconut oil. Yes! coconut oil do wonders for your hair. That is the reason most of the women in the Eastern countries use coconut oil every day. I vividly remember my grandmother’s hair is thick and black till her death at 94 years.
Coconut oil contains vitamins and fatty acid with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. A regular massage of coconut oil is the fastest way to re-grow your hair as it protects and nourishes your scalp. More than coconut oil, the act of massage itself improves oxygenation in your scalp and helps you re-grow your hair.
Use coconut oil as a treatment before you wash your hair. Leave the coconut oil on your hair for at least 20 to 30 minutes before you wash your hair.

Step 3: Reduce stress with meditation
Stress is the root cause and therefore mediation is a must.
A simple easy to learn meditative exercise is described as follows:
1. Find a quiet place where you can be alone if possible.
2. Sit in a comfortable position.
3. Close your eyes and take three deep breaths. Let your thoughts come and go.
4. Start to visualize a particular object-for example, rose.
5. In your thoughts, start to repeat the word for the object-“rose”-over and over, at any speed or rhythm it wants to go.
6. As you continue to repeat the word, start to imagine the rose opening and closing in the same rhythm.
7. If distracting thoughts come into your mind, let them pass through. Continue to repeat your word and see its image.
8. Keep this process going from two to twenty minutes.
9. When it is time to stop, open your eyes slowly.
You should feel relaxed, refreshed, and less anxious after trying this technique. Read more…
