It’s normal for women to lose 50-100 hairs per day. But if you’re losing more hair than usual or you notice thinning in some areas, something else might be going on.
Stress, hormonal changes, and illness can all cause hair loss in women, but the most common cause is female pattern hair loss (alopecia). Unlike hair loss in men, women do not usually become totally bald. Instead, they tend to lose hair in certain areas. Female hair loss can occur in a variety of patterns, including:
Hair loss can be particularly devastating for women because it’s not expected or socially acceptable. Thinning hair and bald spots can severely impact a woman’s self-esteem, well-being, and quality of life. If you’re struggling with hair loss, you have options.

The main cause of hair loss is the same for women and men: androgenetic alopecia, also called male or female pattern baldness. For men, hair loss usually starts above the temples and recedes into a characteristic “M” shape. Women tend to have gradual thinning that starts at the part line and expands outward. But unlike in men, a woman’s hairline rarely recedes, and it’s rare for women to become totally bald.
Most women will experience some degree of female pattern hair loss during their lives. It usually starts around menopause due to hormonal changes. But it can start earlier, especially during pregnancy, or well into a woman’s senior years.
Hereditary pattern baldness isn’t the only reason women experience hair loss. Other causes include:
These conditions can cause temporary hair “shedding,” and your hair may eventually grow back. But regardless of the cause, if you notice you’re losing more hair than usual or that your hair is thinning in some areas, you should see a female hair restoration doctor in Houston.
