Men can also experience female pattern hair loss.

Female pattern hair loss is a hereditary condition which affects around 30 million women in the US alone. It normally arises when women are in their late fifties or sixties. However, it may occur at any stage in life, even during adolescence. Discover some of the best ways to treat this type of hair loss in women.

Hair Transplant

Experts generally advise women to avoid undergoing a hair transplant in Turkey unless they lose a significant proportion of their hair. However, such treatment still remains a quick and relatively easy process which can provide a permanent solution to hair loss in women. A hair transplant involves taking grafts from the fuller ‘donor areas’ and implanting these into the balder ‘recipient areas’. The full results will be visible around nine months after the operation.

Chemical Treatments

Chemical products can change the hormone balance in the body and prevent it from worsening. This, in turn, can prevent or reduce the pace of hair loss. In top hair restoration facilities such as SHIFT Hair Transplant, experts advise many female patients to opt for chemical treatment methods first.

Hormone Blockers

In older women, some treatments involve using drugs which impede the release of certain types of hormones. It is possible to combine these tablets with a hormone solution that patients can massage into the skin of the scalp. However, patients must normally take this medication for a minimum of six months before seeing any effects. The type of hormone-blocking treatment differs across nations according to regulations. Many of these products are clinically proven to be able to allow re-growth of hair. However, only a qualified and certified doctor should prescribe and supervise hormonal treatments.


The shampoo provides a soft cleansing effect and can help prepare the hair for further treatment. Patients can ask their doctor to recommend them a safe and effective shampoo that has a gentle but powerful action on the scalp. Make sure to look for shampoos with natural, herbal ingredients rather than harsh chemicals.


Sometimes aromatherapy can support the growth of new hair and help prevent nutritional deficiency in hair roots and scalp cells. Aromatherapy typically involves using essential oils such as thyme, lavender, geranium, sage, and rosemary. These can have an invigorating and beneficial impact on the scalp and on hair growth.
