Answers to Women’s Most Often Asked Questions About Hair Loss & Thinning Hair


Hair loss is a common occurrence as we age, and while it may be natural, it can also cause heightened levels of anxiety and depression. As a result, more and more women are actively seeking solutions for all forms of female hair loss, from hereditary thinning hair to other forms of hair loss.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. If you have questions about which hair loss solution is right for you, please contact us, and we will be happy to help.

Hair loss in women can be caused by various factors, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, stress, and certain medical conditions. Understanding the underlying cause is necessary to determine the most appropriate course of action. Consulting with a healthcare professional, such as a dermatologist or trichologist, can help identify the specific cause of hair loss and develop a personalized treatment or hair restoration plan of action.

It is normal for women to lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day as part of their hair’s natural growth cycle. Factors such as age, genetics, and hormonal changes can influence the amount of hair shedding. If you feel you are experiencing excessive hair loss, it’s advisable to consult a healthcare professional for an evaluation to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.

Over-styling, particularly through the use of harsh chemicals, excessive heat from styling tools, and tight hairstyles, can contribute to hair damage and breakage. It is important to give your hair regular breaks from styling, use heat protectants, and opt for gentler styling techniques to minimize the risk of over-styling. Choosing hair care products specifically formulated for your hair type can also help maintain its health.

Concerns regarding potential damage to existing hair and scalp due to hair system usage are common. A customized hair system, selected in consultation with a trained hair restoration specialist, should not lead to such issues. The quality of attachments and accessories used is critical in ensuring that the hair system does not cause damage. Proper professional maintenance and care are also necessary for preserving hair and scalp health.

Women often ask us about the possibility of wearing their hair system continuously, including during sleep. The answer is almost always “yes.” Modern, high-quality hair systems in conjunction with specifically formulated medical grade adhesives designed to be used with “permanently attached” hair replacement systems allow you to lead a normal, active life, with 24-hour wear. It’s important to heed the advice of a specialist for not only choosing the right system but also for its maintenance and care.

Women often ask us about the differences between hair systems made of 100% human hair and those made with synthetic hair. Human hair systems are often preferred for their more natural appearance, ease of maintenance, and customizability, while synthetic systems are mass-produced, limiting styling and personalization, as well as their ability to be completely undetectable. Understanding these distinctions can help in making an informed choice.

Women commonly inquire about the ability of non-surgical hair replacement systems to remain undetectable. Today’s modern women’s hair replacement systems are created utilizing light and breathable base materials that mimic your own scalp, offering a natural look and feel. Additionally, our skilled women’s hair replacement specialists can precisely match your chosen hair systems to your existing hair and style, ensuring a seamless, undetectable integration with your natural hair.
