Women Lose Their Hair Too

While thinning hair is typically thought to be limited to men, nearly 30 million women experience hair loss or thinning at some point in their lives. In some cases, it's linked to genetics, but many other factors-like diet, illness and stress-can also lead to loss and thinning.

Chances are the most of us will experience thinning hair to some degree at some point in our lives. Experts say that thinning hair is, in essence, a form of hair loss, and it occurs naturally with age. While many people think their hair is thinning out, they are actually experiencing a very minor form of hair loss, causing the hair to look less full then before.

Keep in mind, chemical treatments can also affect the appearance and texture of your hair in ways that aging may not, or can amplify aging's natural effects.
