When people think of hair loss, they typically conjure up images of men. However, some women also suffer from this problem and it can be particularly distressing for them. After all, luscious locks are often considered to be an integral part of the female image, so losing hair can decimate ladies’ confidence.
The important thing is not to suffer in silence. If your hair is thinning, there may be options available to you that can address the issue and boost your self-esteem. For example, you might be a suitable candidate for hair replacement.
In good company
It’s important that you realise you’re by no means alone. More women than you realise may experience thinning locks. Indeed, international style symbol Naomi Campbell recently showed she has a receding hairline.
She was snapped on holiday in Ibiza and areas of exposed scalp could be seen. It’s believed that the 42-year-old supermodel has traction alopecia, which is caused by the use of hair extensions. It occurs when the extensions pull the natural hair, causing it to break.
Damage may be permanent
Commenting on the issue, hair extensions expert Tatiana Karelina said: “The interesting thing to note is that traction alopecia doesn’t progress like other hair diseases. At the initial stages it is reversible but prolonged tension may destroy the hair follicles and will not re-grow under any circumstances.
“It is unclear from the pictures if Naomi’s condition is permanent but given the time that has passed since she was first spotted with this condition it is more than likely that the damage she has suffered is permanent.”
Getting the right treatment
It’s important to discover the cause of female hair loss. There may be underlying health problems that are behind the phenomenon and it is crucial to get to the bottom of these and access the appropriate treatments if necessary.
