Female Hair Loss in Stafford, VA
What Is Female Hair Loss?
Many people might think of hair loss as a "male" problem, but about 40% of those suffering from baldness or thinning hair are actually female. Like men, women can inherit androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern hair loss. Genetic alopecia in females is caused by a similar response to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) that causes male baldness. Females harbor low levels of the testosterone receptor DHT, and when these hormones become out of balance, you may end up with destroyed, ineffective hair follicles. In other circumstances, women who experience a life-changing event (such as menopause or pregnancy) can be exposed to large quantities of hair thinning because of pressure and hormonal changes. At Hair Saviours, certified trichologist Monica Dickenson offers a variety of treatments to restore your hair and scalp health. If you're struggling with hair loss and live in the Stafford, VA area, schedule a consultation at Hair Saviours to learn more about how we can help you regain a healthy, full head of hair.
How Do You Treat Female Hair Loss?
Before creating your hair restoration plan, Monica will perform an examination of your hair and scalp. She'll also speak with you to learn more about your health, family history, and any other factors that might have played a role in your hair loss. From there, she will go over your treatment choices. We offer a selection of effective hair and scalp solutions at Hair Saviours, including scalp detox and Alma TED™ treatments, which use sound waves and air pressure to noninvasively open channels in the scalp to allow nourishing serums to penetrate into the hair follicles. During your consultation, Monica will explain the details and benefits of each treatment, as well as what you can expect throughout your hair restoration program.
What Are the Causes of Female Hair Loss?
Losing a bit of hair each day is normal, but when you begin to notice significant shedding or bald spots, it becomes necessary to seek treatment if you want to preserve your hairline. Some of the known causes of hair loss in women include:
- Genetics (female pattern baldness)
- Certain hairstyles (such as tight ponytails, which can loosen the hair roots)
- Dietary habits
- Hormone imbalances
- Vitamin deficiency
- Certain medical treatments
Hair Saviours Reviews
Visited 1/3/24 To receive a deep scalp cleaning treatment. I really enjoyed my session. Monica was attentive and explained the entire procedure. The office hours are only 6 hours a day. But she will try to work around your schedule. I highly recommend going to hair saviors.
Been going here for about a year now. Amazing service everytime. Really listens and helps with your needs.
To say I am beyond please with the level of professionalism is an understatement. I could not be more pleased with the attention to detail and the services. The time Ms. Dickenson took to address all questions was very impressive. In a time when customer service is lacking I can surely say she takes the time to address all your questions and most importantly manage client expectations.
Monica is a true professional. She’s someone that understands, because of that she makes anyone who meets her feel comfortable. Thank you so much for knowledge and care.
Monica, I loveeee your hair products. I love the way they let my hair feels looks and grows.
