Causes of Hair Loss in Females

Nowadays, hair loss and thinning in women is common. It might be a genetic effect or due to certain medical reasons like thyroid etc. The question of what can cause hair loss in women is attributed to many factors ranging from simple nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes or stress due to work or life matters. It could either be in the form of a receding hairline, balding in the forehead or irregular patches.

Hair loss due to Certain Nutritional or Vitamin deficiencies: 

The subclinical nutritional deficiencies of Vit D3, Vit B12, iron are chiefly responsible for hair loss due to nutritional deficiencies in females. This can be prevented by following some good hair loss diet plan with adequate supplementation of these essential vitamins and amino acids.

Hormonal hair loss in women: 

Variation in hormonal levels in the female body has been found to be an important reason for hair loss in women. Various hormones that contribute to hormonal hair loss in women are thyroid hormones, oestrogen, progesterone, FHS, LH etc. Also, life events like pregnancy or menopause can also contribute to hormonal imbalance in women which may contribute to temporary hair loss.

Stress and hair loss in women: 

Both mental and physiological stress are increasingly becoming the main contributors to hair loss in working women. This type of hair loss is called telogen effluvium in which stress causes the hair follicles to go into a resting phase from a growth phase. This makes the hair susceptible to fall out while washing or combing. 

Hair Loss Treatment Methods for Women: 

The causes of hair loss in females can be many, while some of them are temporary or reversible and some are permanent. Temporary hair loss due to stress, or hormonal changes, pregnancy, or menopause do not require any treatment but there are various female hair loss treatments available for baldness or patchiness due to underlying conditions.

At HairMD, we provide the best female hair loss treatment in Pune, where we take utmost care to diagnose the root cause of hair fall. Our specialists examine the scalp at first to diagnose the pattern of hair loss. Other than the physical examination, blood tests are done to check the thyroid hormone,  androgens, iron, or other substances that can affect hair growth. 

Some of the common treatments available to treat hair loss for women are – 



Minoxidil is a non-prescription over the counter drug (OTC) that is recommended to all who are looking for hair loss treatment for women. Minoxidil helps slow down the rate of hair fall in women and in men. While women are recommended a 2% dose, men are suggested to go as high as 5%. In most cases, Minoxidil has also been effective in catalyzing hair growth in the affected areas.

This liquid form medicine is most effective when it is applied to the affected area every day. Minoxidil may take a few months to start showing its results. If you find this treatment effective, you will have to continue using it to keep getting its benefits. Minoxidil with a dermaroller can give effective results.


Finasteride is an effective hair loss treatment for women as well as men. This OTC drug might not show significant results for people over 60 years of age. However, it has given fruitful results for many. Finasteride, however, has a few side effects in rare-cases and they include reduced sex drive and an increased risk of prostate cancer. Pregnant women are advised not to consume this drug as it could lead to complications in pregnancy. 

Who should try this?

Though Finasteride and Minoxidil have been successfully used to treat inherited hair loss, these OTC drugs should be taken strictly under medical prescription. The effectiveness of these medicines depends on the age and the type of the hair loss. These might not work for everyone, and so it should not be expected to regrow a full head of hair. Medicines for hair loss treatment for women can also have side effects like the irritated scalp, dizziness, chest pain, headaches, irregular heart rate, hand, foot, or breast swelling and/or sexual dysfunction. Such conditions and dosage can be best diagnosed and prescribed by a dermatologist. Book an appointment with a dermatologist in Pune at HairMD for the best hair loss treatment for females.

Hair transplant surgery:

As the name suggests, hair is transplanted from donor areas to the scalp. This is an invasive procedure but has the best results in terms of hair fall treatment for women. In this process, the area on the head with hair or from other parts of the body is grafted in areas where there is no hair. This is done repeatedly in the form of micrografts and mini grafts. The process of replanting roots of the hair in the bald section of the head is called grafting. 

This is an Out-Patient procedure, however, given the time and complexity of the process, patients are advised to get someone to drive them home after the procedure as the patient is anaesthetized leading to drowsiness. 

Who should try this?

Hair transplant surgeries are recommended by hair specialists in Pune as a procedure for those with heavy hair fall and where other treatment methods have proven ineffective. People with bald spots, bald sideburns, bald scalp, and/or progressive balding can try hair transplant. Possible side effects of this procedure include swelling, bleeding, and infection.

Laser therapy:

Laser therapy has recently been introduced to the world of dermatology to treat hair loss in women. This form of treatment has seen effective results for both men and women. In this procedure, the hair follicles are energized with bursts of Photons and this energy is pumped to enable the roots to function normally. This is a widely opted procedure recommended by the best dermatologists in Pune for hair loss.

However, for effective results, one might have to wait for as long as 26 weeks in a few cases. The effectiveness of this treatment varies from patient to patient. We recommend consulting one of the best hair specialist doctors in Pune to learn about this procedure in detail before opting for it.

Who should try this?

If you are looking out for female pattern baldness treatment or want to reverse hair loss, you might consider laser treatment as an option. This is a great option for those who do not want to go for an invasive procedure such as a transplant and willing to wait longer for results. 

Our Hair Loss Treatment approach

We at HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, take care of the hair of our patients by providing them with the best hair loss treatment- customised cocktail therapy for hair loss which is based on proven medical research. 

Currently, finasteride and Minoxidil are the mainstay treatment for hair loss in women and men- mainly to stop the progression of male pattern hair loss or baldness in females and males. Finasteride is a tablet which blocks the hormones- 5-alpha-reductase in the body which is responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases the vascularity i.e. blood flow of the scalp and promotes hair growth. 

Along with Finasteride and Minoxidil, various procedures like platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling, and low-level laser light therapy (LLLT therapy for hair loss) are done to treat hair loss.

  • In PRP hair loss treatment, concentrated growth factors extracted from our own blood are delivered to hair follicles on the scalp. 
  • In micro-needling for hair loss, thousands of micro punctures are created in our scalp with the help of micro needling derma roller devices. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site that stimulates hair growth.
  • In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a red cold laser is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. LLLT treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problems. 
  • In mesotherapy, growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair.

Hair Loss Treatment FAQs

How can I stop my hair from falling out?

In some cases, hair loss might occur due to heredity, hormonal changes, or medical conditions. In such cases, do visit HairMD for the best hair fall treatment in Pune.

What is the most effective treatment for hair loss?

Some of the most effective female hair loss treatments are – 

  • Medications like Minoxidil & Finasteride.
  • Hair transplant surgery
  • Laser therapy
  • Cocktail therapy (Combination of treatments)

How is hairloss linked to lifestyle?

Hair loss is often a manifestation of an unhealthy lifestyle caused by smoking, excessive drinking, unhealthy eating habits, and lack of exercise. Getting these factors under control can help regulate the speed of hair loss.

Ensuring that the hair receives proper nourishment through adequate vitamin E in the diet as well as better circulation through massages can help prevent hair fall in women. Enriching the hair with coconut oil, relying on Almonds, Acacia, and other fruits in the diet to enrich the hair follicles and stimulate hair growth are some of the changes you can help to stave off hair loss.

Is Hair transplant the right choice for me?

You are a good candidate for hair transplantation if:

  • You have tried all conservative methods to control hair loss like medicinal therapy, low-level laser light therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy. But all these treatments have not worked for you.
  • Hair loss/baldness permanently settled.
  • Your baldness doesn’t have any underlying pathological disease as a cause.
  • If you don’t have a diffuse hair loss as in hair loss all over the head.
  • You have a perfectly healthy donor area.
  • You are ready to take proper aftercare and precautions to avoid infection.

What is the minimum age for Hair Transplant?

It is preferable to get a transplant done once your donor’s hairs are stabilized. Usually your donor hair fall is stabilized by 25 years, hence it is better to get it done post 25. Hair transplant before 25 is only recommended if there is advanced hair loss, if the hairloss has become stable or if the hairloss is affecting the mental health of the patient.
