5 Tips for Managing Female Hair Thinning

September 18th, 2023

Female hair thinning can begin for a number of reasons, including genetics, aging, medical conditions, etc. Here is what you should know about female hair thinning and how to manage it: 

What Causes Female Hair Thinning?  

Here are some reasons why females may experience hair thinning: 

Genetics and Hormones: Similar to males, genetics can play a role in female hair thinning. Hormonal changes throughout a female’s life, such as pregnancy, menopause, or conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome, may trigger hair thinning.

Aging: As people age, the rate of their hair growth may naturally slow down, which can lead to less hair and thinner hair follicles. Aging can contribute to the overall thinning of the hair in females.

Medical Conditions: Females can experience certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, autoimmune diseases, and other skin conditions that may affect the scalp. These medical conditions may lead to hair thinning. 

Other reasons for female hair thinning may be nutritional deficiencies, stress, or lifestyle factors. You can help reduce hair thinning by treating the underlying cause first. If the underlying cause is not treatable, consider scalp micropigmentation.  

What Is Scalp Micropigmentation?  

Scalp micropigmentation is one of the ways females can manage their thinning hair. Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure that uses small micro-needles to deposit small dots of pigment onto the scalp. These deposits replicate the appearance of hair follicles and give the illusion of a thicker head of hair. Scalp micropigmentation can camouflage thinning areas and receding hairlines. At Scalp Micro USA, our practitioners can assist you in choosing the right hairline and choosing the right pigment for your hair color. Scalp micropigmentation can help manage female and male hair loss. 

What Are Some Other Tips for Managing Female Hair Thinning?

Here are a few other tips to help manage female hair thinning: 

1. Intervene Early

If you notice any changes to your hair density or your hair part starts to become wider, take action earlier. The longer you wait, the more hair you can lose. Consider speaking to a dermatologist or our practitioners at Scalp Micro USA to explore options to create a personalized plan to address your hair concerns. 

2. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

You can maintain hair health by eating a balanced diet and regularly exercising. Foods and supplements rich in vitamins, proteins, and minerals can help to contribute to stronger and thicker hair. Stress can also contribute to thinning hair, so try to manage events or situations that are adding to your stress.  

3. Choose the Right Hair Care Products 

Consider using hair care products that are tailored to your specific needs and hair type. Using harsh hair care products on thinning hair may cause more damage and loss. Avoid tight hairstyles and heat styling, as these can make hair thinning more prominent. 

4. Consider Topical Solutions

There are several different over-the-counter and prescription topical solutions that are designed to slow down hair loss and promote regrowth. You can use these topical solutions before and after scalp micropigmentation. Consult with our practitioners to determine when you are able to begin these topical solutions. 

5. Choose a Hair Tattoo

A hair tattoo or scalp micropigmentation can help disguise thinning areas of your hair. Session times and lengths depend on the size of the treatment area. After treatment, you can go back to your daily activities without downtime. A hair tattoo does not regrow hair but can help your hair look thicker. 

You can choose one or a combination of all these tips to help manage your thinning hair. Consider consulting one of our practitioners to see which steps to take for your specific hair color and type.
