Types of female hair loss

Types of female hair loss

There are different forms of hair loss and not all are the same. In some cases the cause is genetic, meanwhile in other cases it is stress, unbalanced nutrition or a disease. However, they all have ‘thin hair’ in common.

Hair loss is not only a major male problem. Almost 40% of all women suffer from one of the forms of hair loss at least once in a lifetime requiring treatment.



In the case of diffuse hair loss, which occurs more frequently in women than in men, the entire head is affected. Although the hair root is intact, it receives an inadequate supply of the nutrients required for hair growth, such as amino acids and vitamins. These normally enter the hair via tiny blood vessels. In the

absence of these nutrients, the hair root is unable to produce healthy hair and may cease activity altogether. The result: The growth phase is cut short and the hair is shed.

There are numerous things that trigger diffuse hair loss:

  • Medical conditions, such as infections or metabolic disorders
  • Certain medicines
  • Stress/psychological stress
  • Poor nutrition
  • Hormonal changes (e.g. stopping the pill or giving birth) can lead to hair being inadequately nourished.



If the cause of the diffuse hair loss can be determined, it should be medically treated as soon as possible. Pantogar® can help prevent excessive hair loss and stimulate hair growth once again by supplying the hair with suit

able nutrients. Because of the hair’s life cycle, the treatment should be carried out for at least 3 to 6 months.

Recommendation: 3 x 1 capsule per day



This form of hair loss is also called circular hair loss, or spot baldness. It is characterized by sharp defined bald patches of different sizes.

Alopecia areata is an inflammatory, usually reversible form of hair loss. The cause is unknown. Most likely, immunological (concerning the body’s defense mechanism) processes play a role in the development of the disease. Hereditary factors also seem to be of relevance, as in about 25% of cases the disease occurs in families.

Alopecia areata should be treated by a doctor.



usually expresses itself in the form of a thinning crown and visible scalp. The hair bulb reacts very sensitively to the body’s own hormones that control hair growth.

In addition to the basic cause of hereditary predisposition, the following factors can lead to this form of hair loss in women:

  • Change of life (menopause)
  • Hormonal imbalances


Hereditary hair loss can be treated


with special medications which are applied directly to the affected areas. Furthermore, Pantogar® is often recommended by physicians as a combination therapy for hereditary hair loss, as the highly concentrated active substance complex also supports the natural function of the hair root.

Causes of female hair loss: Diffuse hair loss has many triggers – what causes yours?

Diffuse hair loss can have many different causes.

1- Stress

The colloquialism of “being so stressed I want to tear my hair out” actually has a vein of truth to it; high levels of physical and/or emotional stress (or a combination of the two) can lead to hair loss in both men and women.

2- Diet

Experts agree that a healthy diet with the right mix of protein, iron, and other necessary nutrients can help improve the health and appearance of your hair. A balanced diet can give your hair everything it needs to stay healthy and look great.

3- Disease and medications

Numerous diseases can affect the state of your hair growth. These include some skin diseases as well as chronic diseases, e.g. diabetes, rheumatism and Crohn’s disease or infections associated with fever. Medications can also be a trigger.

4- Childbirth

Hair loss after childbirth often takes some women completely by surprise. But, in fact, it’s perfectly normal. Afterbirth, the estrogen levels in a woman’s body drop significantly, slowing down hair growth and sending most hair follicles in the resting stage. This results in a temporary increase in daily hair loss. Most women gain their hair back by their child’s first birthday, so there is usually no need for concern.
