Nearly 30 million women experience hair loss or thinning hair at some point in their lives. And while this condition is thought to be limited to just men, it’s not. In some cases, hair loss (permanent hair loss, in particular) is directly linked to genetics, but many other factors like diet, illness and stress can also lead to the problem.
Chances are that most of us will experience thinning hair to some degree at some point in our lives. According to Miami dermatologist Dr. Janice Lima-Maribona, thinning hair is in essence a form of hair loss. “Thinning hair is a natural process that occurs with age,” she says. “While many people think that their hair is thinning out, in actuality they are experiencing a very minor form of hair loss, causing the hair to look less full than before.” She adds that chemical treatments can also affect the appearance and texture of your hair.
