You’ve probably heard of male pattern hair loss; it’s the most common cause of thinning hair in men. What you may not know is that there’s a very similar condition that affects women. Female pattern hair loss—more formally known as androgenic alopecia—may not be quite as common as its male counterpart, but it’s experienced enough that it leaves countless women struggling with thinning hair. The good news is that you don’t have to settle for hair loss; there are treatments we can provide you to restore a full, healthy head of hair!
Trichotillomania, Trich, is the chronic behavior of pulling out ones on hair. People with Trich generally pull their hair out absentmindedly while doing other things such as reading or watching TV. No one knows exactly what causes it. There is evidence that it is partly genetic in nature. Chronic Trich generally starts around puberty but can start as young as infancy. Trich may come and go throughout a person's entire life.
