A Silent Issue: Women and Hair Loss
By Katie Snyder

Fact: Hair loss is no longer just a men’s issue, it affects women too.

And if you’ve ever glanced down at your hairbrush and found a sizable clump of freshly-pulled hair, or looked at your hair and realized it appeared way thinner than it used to be, you know how frightening it can be.

“Today, more than 21 million women suffer from hair loss across the United States,” said William Gaunitz WTS, founder of Evolution Hair Centers. “While most common in older women, it can affect even women who are in their 20’s and 30’s.”

Every year, the taboo topic leaves women of all ages suffering in silence as they search for reasons why and solutions to fix their often embarrassing condition.
The good news? There are answers.

Is my hair loss normal?

Not all hair loss is bad hair loss. As women age, their hair will naturally fall out and replace itself with a fresh hair in the follicle. But there are other factors that may determine if the hair loss is more permanent—like genetics.

“If you have hair loss and the androgenetic alopecia gene, which is the hereditary female pattern hair loss gene, and it runs in either side of the family tree, you are more likely to have female pattern thinning and hair loss,” said Gaunitz.

This isn’t always the case. There may also be other factors including health conditions, family history and lifestyle factors that lead to the two other most common hair loss conditions among women: telogen effluvium, the shedding of hair brought on by stressful events or illness, and alopecia areata, a recurrent disease that results in a typical pattern of diffuse hair thinning over the middle scalp.

According to William Gaunitz, other factors might include:

Hormonal Imbalance

This can be caused by unbalanced levels of androgens, namely dihydrotestosterone(DHT) and estrogen. Other hormonal imbalances such as thyroid problems and genetic hormonal responses to autoimmune conditions can also cause thinning of the hair.

Stress

Remember that saying “you’re going to make my hair fall out?” Well it’s true. When women experience stress, the adrenal glands become overworked it increases the levels of cortisol in the body. In return, a woman can produce an excess of hormones that can sometimes cause the hair to fall out.

Pregnancy

After a pregnancy a woman’s hormones can be in disarray. It is perfectly common for post-partum mothers to experience thinning of the hair and even bald patches. In most cases, once the hormone levels have balanced back out, the hair should grow back.

Birth Control

Perhaps the most common is birth control. When women start and stop birth control it changes the levels or hormones in their body which can temporarily cause hair loss.

Prevention and Treatment Options

“While you cannot fight your genes, you can fight the effects of aging and hormonal imbalance,” said Gaunitz. “While losing hair can be embarrassing, chances are it’s something that’s easily treatable.”

Being able to analyze full medical history, as well as details relating to lifestyle, family, diet and any medication you may be taking is essential to getting the right diagnosis and treatment.

Other helpful hair loss prevention tips:

•    Use organic and anti-inflammatory shampoos and other products that are cleansing to the scalp to help flush out hormonal build up inside the hair follicles.
•    Maintain a healthy diet full of fiber and vitamin rich foods.
•    Try out over the counter products such as Minoxidil (Rogaine).
•    Make sure to use the right nutritional supplements.

“Hormones can be easily manipulated in women with nutritional supplements,” said Gaunitz. “The combination of the right nutritional supplements, healthy diet and organic shampoo and conditioner will usually stop a female’s hair loss.”

For more extreme cases, low level laser therapy is also available for women who want to increase the quantity and quality of hair in the hair shaft that is already being produced.

Can Stress Cause Hair Loss

Posted by Rob Beale on Thu, Jan 06, 2011 @ 12:33 PM

If your hair is thinning or falling out, you are probably anxious to find out why. Is hair loss due to stress, diet, heredity, or some other factor? The answer is “yes” to all. The following are some types of hair loss, with information about each:

Normal Hair Loss: 

We all lose about 150-200 hairs per day, out of the 100,000 contained by the average scalp. This is due to a few factors:

  • Lifespan: The average lifespan of a single hair is 4.5 years; the hair then falls out and is replaced within 6 months by a new hair.
  • Styling: Harsh chemicals used in some products can weaken and damage the follicles.
  • Aging: After the age of 30 (and often before), men and women both start losing hair, though men tend to do so at a faster rate.
Hereditary Hair Loss: 
Genetic hair loss isn’t due to excessive amounts of hair falling out, as many believe, but to an insufficient amount of hairs growing back to replace the hairs that have been shed. Hereditary baldness is associated with a few factors:
  • Gender: Hereditary, or “pattern” baldness, is much more common in men than in women.
  • Age: By age 30, 1 in 4 men are balding; by age 60, 2 in 3 men are balding or are bald.
  • Hormones: Pattern baldness is associated with testosterone; women who have more of it in their system as they age tend to lose (or, technically, fail to re-grow) more hair. This is also why more men experience pattern baldness.
Stress and Hair Loss: 
You may have heard that stress can cause hair loss, and it’s true. Excessive physical or emotional stress, like that associated with injury, illness or surgery, can cause one of two types of hair loss:
  • The more common type is called telogen effluvium. With this less severe type of hair loss, the hair stops growing and lies dormant, only to fall out 2 or 3 months later. Then it grows back within 6 to 9 months.
  • The other type of stress-induced hair loss is known as alopecia areata, and involves a white blood cell attack on the hair follicles. With this type of hair loss, the hair also falls out within weeks (usually in patches), but can involve the entire scalp and even body hair. Hair may grow back on its own, but treatment may also be required.
Other Hair Loss Factors: 
There are other factors that can also cause hair loss, including but not limited to:
  • Illness
  • Medication
  • Hormonal changes
  • Pregnancy, childbirth, and birth control pill usage
  • Nervous habits
  • Chemotherapy
If your hair is thinning, or you’re experiencing baldness and it seems abnormal (i.e. if you’re in your teens or 20s, if it’s an odd pattern, etc.) it’s a good idea to speak with an Evolution Hair Growth Specialist to determine the cause. Also, if you’re concerned that stress is the culprit, it’s always a good idea to cut down on lifestyle stress and find some effective coping techniques for the stress that remains.

Spencer Forrest X5 Laser Reviewed by William Gaunitz

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Oct 06, 2010 @ 03:38 PM

I have reviewed numerous handheld lasers on the market.  After seeing thousands of clients come through the Evolution, I did not see any handheld unit besides the Erchonia THL-1 Laser that actually worked well enough to carry in our clinics.
Most commercially available handheld lasers only use 5 - 9 unfocused diffuse light diodes. This simply means that there would not be enough energy available to create a notable difference in most hair loss situations. Different hair types require different levels of energy to see results. Dark to black hair usually can only tolerate 30 diodes of 635nm (3.5-5mW) energy at 2 x per week before overstimulation. Light to blond hair can tolerate almost double that at 61 diodes of the same energy 2 x per week.
Overstimulation can occur in anyone who has received too much laser treatment for their particular situation. Overstimulation can cause a stalling of hair growth (slow growth), scalp pain, and in many cases rapid shedding of hair in the treated area. It is very important to use the correct dosage of energy for every individual in the correct intervals.
With that being said, it is also very important to get enough laser energy to ensure proper hair growth. For a diffuse light diode handheld device to really create a positive impact on the average hair loss case, the laser device would need to at least contain 15 diffuse light diodes. You must also note that not all diodes are created equal as well. You must have a quality built device to maintain adequate and sustained power supply to each diode to ensure a quality dose of energy.
There is only one device that I have found currently available that fits these criteria. This device is the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser. The Spencer Forrest has been well thought out, is reliable, and has shown actual clinical evidence in the Evolution Clinics of producing enough energy to improve hair growth in most hair loss cases. The X5 is also currently going through FDA clinical trials to receive a 510K market clearance for the promotion of new hair growth.
It is of my opinion that the X5 Laser is by far the greatest value against competitive units at a price point of $298.90. Sunetics makes a 15 diode paddle brush laser selling at $795.00 that did perform well in an Evolution Clinical review, but had other flaws. The Sunetics unit consistently lost its battery cover during regular use and the rechargeable battery failed in many instances. Dealing with Sunetics customer service department was an issue as well. It took over 6 weeks to have one of their units repaired.
The Spencer Forrest laser at treatment protocol of 15 minutes 3 times weekly produced good results for dark hair. For light hair and blonds 20 minutes 3 times weekly was the most effective protocol. Evolution Hair Centers now carries the Spencer Forrest X5 Laser with or without a complete Evolution Hair Centers treatment program. If you are interesting purchasing an X5 Laser, browse the online store here to purchase the device at the greatest value on the web. FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY....EACH X5 laser comes with a FREE HAIRSTEM KIT (a $85 value)!
