Female Hair Loss and Baldness: A Bitter Experience

Beautiful, natural, and healthy hair is a crucial component of beauty and youthfulness in women. It is a significant sign of health and welfare and can be the best accessory a lady can wear. A dense, healthy hair gives you the option to try different styles and dressings.


Unfortunately, severe hair loss threatens this natural beauty factor for millions of women each year. This is a tough experience for women as they have special bonds with their hair, and it is a strong source of self-confidence for them.

Different treatments help women gain their natural hair back. In some cases, remedies’ side effects and limited effects delete any sign of hope in women. With its permanent results, a hair transplant is the best option for some types of hair loss in women.

Is Baldness Something Common for Women?

Many people believe that hair loss is only a problem for men. However, more than half of all women are expected to suffer from considerable hair loss, so we can claim that baldness or severe hair loss is common among women.

Female-pattern hair loss (FPHL) is the most common cause of hair loss in women, affecting roughly one-third of those who are susceptible (roughly 30 million women in the US and 40 million in the EU).

Hair Loss in Women: Reasons and Causes

As hair loss is a common problem for men, most of the hair loss types and treatments discussed in different communities are related to the hair loss experience in men. However, despite some similarities with men, women generally suffer from separate roots of hair loss.

Women’s hair loss is the result of several different causes. Any kind of physical issue, hormone alteration, or stress may be responsible. While it’s sometimes challenging to discover the underlying reason, here are some common hair loss causes among women:


Alopecia is influenced by a series of factors, including genetics, hair care habits, and anything that causes the immune system to confuse hair follicles with external threats. There are four main types of it for women:

Traumatic Alopecia

The usage of hair styling products causes hair to fall out due to the product’s ingredients. The hair shaft may break when you use hot combs, blow dryers, straighteners, or certain chemicals to color or straighten your hair.

Alopecia Areata

This refers to patchy hair loss that occurs on the head or the body all at once. It usually starts as one or more circular bald patches that may or may not overlap.

Cicatricial Alopecia

A collection of diseases that induce everlasting hair loss through scarring are called Cicatricial Alopecia. Hair falls out, and the follicle is replaced with scar tissue due to this process.

Androgenetic Alopecia

Androgenetic Alopecia is the main cause of hair loss or baldness with a feminine pattern caused by genetics or family history, affecting millions of women. Female pattern baldness is the most common cause of female hair loss, and it typically occurs between the ages of 12 and 40 years. In contrast to men, who often perceive balding as a receding hairline and distinct bald patches, women see hair loss as an overall thinning of the hair.


Temporary Hair Loss

In some circumstances, women experience short-lived hair loss. A common type of temporary hair thinning is Telogen Effluvium (TE). It is the second most prevalent cause of hair loss. It is only temporary and occurs when the number of follicles that generate hair and are in a resting condition changes.
For example, women who have just given birth or have had another traumatic event may experience hair loss. TE is usually triggered by anything that shocks the body and disrupts the hair lifecycle. It can be high fever, severe infection, emotional stress, and many other shocks to the body.


Hormone Imbalances

Special to women, hair loss due to menopause or using birth control pills can cause hair loss. This is because any changes in the levels of estrogen and progesterone can cause hair loss.



After experiencing a massive event in life that has created a lot of tension and stress, hair thinning can start to grow on you. Mental and physical stress can cause changes in some cycles your body goes through and eventually cause hair loss.


Health and Medical Conditions

In addition to being affected by thyroid difficulties, skin problems, and autoimmune illnesses, hair loss is caused by many other medical conditions.


Vitamin Deficiency

Deficiencies in some vitamins and minerals may also cause women to lose their hair or have hair thinning. Certain dermatologists think that avoiding meat or eating vegetarian diets might contribute to baldness.
Meat, which is high in iron, is known to contribute to the health of hair and body tissues. Women already have a propensity for iron deficiency because of menstrual blood loss; therefore, not getting enough iron in their diet may lead to further iron insufficiency.


Hair Transplant for Women in Turkey

Hair transplants for females are a group of innovative options to fix the hair loss problems for a group of women who experience baldness or a receding hairline. With their permanent results, they can offer a sense of self-loving and confidence for women after a long period of hair loss.

However, hair transplants are not suitable for all women suffering from severe hair loss or female baldness. Some hair loss causes can affect the transplanted hair follicles negatively and jeopardize all the efforts made during the surgery and recovery period.

Pre-Op Consultation: A Major Success Factor for Your Hair Transplant

Pre-Op Consultation: A Major Success Factor for Your Hair Transplant

As hair loss can be a victim of a long list of reasons, your hair loss cause should be identified before making any hair transplant interventions. A hair transplant might not be the treatment that fits your conditions the best; ignoring a thorough analysis before the hair transplant makes it a blind shot.

At Dr. Cinik Hair Transplant, a professional team of online consultants helps our patients before making any decisions about their hair transplant. We analyze your medical background, your hair loss, and your current condition. All the following decisions regarding your hair transplant are affected by the initial consultation and analysis.

Blood Test Before a Hair Transplant

Blood factors are essential before a hair transplant for women. As most of you might plan to fly to Turkey to pay a visit to our clinic, we ask you to take a blood test in your country to make sure you are a suitable case for a hair transplant, and it is worth it to fly to Istanbul to have a hair transplant at Dr. Cinik Hair Transplant Center.

We study the following blood factors before a hair transplant for women:

Blood Test Items
Total Iron-Binding Capacity
Vitamine D
Free Testosterone
Vitamin B12
Folic Acid
HDL Cholesterol
LDL Cholesterol

Hair Transplant Methods for Women

At Dr. Cinik Hair Hospital, we offer the most innovative and scientifically proven-to-be-safe hair transplant methods. The following hair transplant techniques are offered for women:


FUE or Follicular Units Extraction is one of the most preferred methods of hair transplantation. Thousands of men and women are selecting this technique for their hair transplantation and enjoy its natural results.

Sapphire FUE

With sharp V-shaped blades, Sapphire FUE is an even more successful hair transplant technique. Sapphire blade tips are the main reason for the improvement of results compared to the normal FUE method.


Direct Hair Implantation or DHI is also a popular method among women for hair transplants as it provides the minimum incision possible for a hair transplant. DHI offers great density and the most natural hairstyle.

Does The Hair Have To Be Shaven?

One of the biggest concerns ladies complain about before attempting to have a hair transplant is that they don’t want to have their hair shaved for a hair transplant. In many cases, they want to keep their long hair and just have some areas on their head shaved like any other unshaven hair transplant procedure.
Hair transplant without shaving is an offered option for these women in many clinics, but despite having enough experience in this field, we do not recommend unshaven hair transplants at Dr. Cinik Hair Hospital, especially for women who mainly have longer hair.

Unshaven hair transplants have a lower success rate, which is mainly due to the problems that occur during the recovery process of the hair transplant. Unfortunately, many medical centers offer unshaven hair transplants without informing the patients about the consequences and difficulties and then blame the patients for the unsuccessful results.

Women Hair Transplant vs Men Hair Transplant

A hair transplant is a suitable option for about 90% of men that are experiencing baldness. This is not the exact figure for women. Not all women experiencing hair loss can be a good candidate for a hair transplant. The main reason is the different behavior of the donor area (stable hair) against dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and different patterns of baldness.


Male pattern baldness affects the frontal sections of hair and keeps the donor area as a stable area that can donate healthy hair follicles. On the contrary, female pattern baldness doesn’t necessarily start from a receding hairline and does affect all hair follicles.

Understanding and identifying the leading cause of hair loss in women need medical qualifications and is extremely necessary before a hair transplant. You can get a free consultation from our experts at Dr. Cinik Hair Transplant, which is an essential step before a hair transplant.


While FUE or follicular units extraction is a popular hair transplant surgery technique among men, DHI or direct hair implant is the most preferred hair restoration technique in women. Despite men, women generally suffer from partial hair loss and want to keep their long hair during the hair transplantation procedure.

Hair transplants for women are only offered when their frontal parts are affected by hair loss, or in other words, their hairline is affected by hair loss. In cases of total hair thinning, other hair reconstruction methods, like stem cell cloning, Regenera Activa, PRP, and mesotherapy, are offered.

Hair Transplant for Women at Dr. Cinik Hair Transplant

Dr. Cinik Hair Transplant is one of the most-known hair transplant centers in the world that offers hair restoration services to women. However, as hair loss causes are different for women compared to those of men, female hair transplants are only offered if the woman is found a suitable person.

Who Is a Suitable Case for Women’s Hair Transplant?

Women who experience some hair loss conditions can get a hair transplant as a permanent remedy for their hair thinning. These hair loss types can include:

  • Pattern baldness similar to male pattern baldness (MPB)
  • Traction Alopecia occurs for women who dress their hair with intensive, pulling styles.
  • Hair loss due to physical damage or trauma
  • Alopecia marginalis is similar to traction alopecia that happens on the frontal parts of hair and creates a receding hairline and a long forehead.
  • Hair loss around incision sites after surgery.

Blood tests are compulsory for women before a hair transplant as many blood factors can hinder or at least affect hair transplant success.

Hair Transplant for Women Costs

The general layout of hair transplants for women and men is the same; there isn’t a significant price gap between hair transplants for men and women.

However, if the cost of a hair transplant is vital for you, Istanbul would be the best choice to get a hair transplant. The cost of women’s hair transplants in Istanbul is one-third of that in other developed countries.

Alternatives for Hair Transplant for Women

As hair transplants are not the best option for all women experiencing partial or total baldness, some alternative hair restorations are available at Dr. Cinik Hair Hospital. By studying your medical background, our experienced staff will offer you the best fit for your needs.

Stem Cells Cloning

Using the Regenera Activa system, we offer one-of-a-kind stem cells hair restoration techniques. In this technique, stem cells are extracted from your hair follicles and then injected into your scalp. This method is among the most effective methods for the restoration of hair after a period of hair loss or thinning.


Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a method in which platelets are extracted from your own blood and then injected back into your scalp. Platelets are highly effective for accelerating body organs’ healing and growth process, including hair follicles.


Using microneedles, essential vitamins and minerals are injected into the scalp, and with Dr. Cinik’s Special micro needle set, blood circulation is also stimulated on the scalp to improve the hair strength and growth.
