Similar to hair loss in males, a majority of females in Singapore will experience hair loss as they age, and are unsure about the kind of treatment that can help solve their issues.
Females in as early as their 20s may suffer from hair loss brought about by a naturally poor diet, or stress-induced hormone imbalances, but no matter what caused your hair loss, rest assured you can find a treatment that works for you.
While many of us are not haunted by the natural occurrence of losing up to 100 strands per day in our daily lives, it would undoubtedly raise questions when the clumps become thicker than usual.
If you’re a female facing hair loss, and are uncertain about the kind of treatments available in Singapore, read on to understand what may be causing hair loss and the options you have to treat this problem.
One reason behind this devastating phenomenon would be a lack of certain minerals or vitamins in your diet.
A deficiency in iron could lead to a decrease in hemoglobin, which is needed for producing hair cells, whereas a lack of the Vitamin-C protein in your diet could speed up ageing.
Stress may also bring about scalp problems, thus leading to an increase in hair fall, thinning and balding.
The pattern in which your hair sheds is commonly known as female hair loss pattern, much like male pattern baldness.

The most common hair loss pattern in females is the Ludwig Pattern, as described by medical experts. It consists of 3 types (I, II and III), and through identifying the stage on which one is at, it helps to determine the right treatment.
Hair loss in any way is irreversible. However, by properly managing your stress or improving our diet, hair loss can be controlled and may grow back.
But if it has gone too far and you’re facing extreme thinning or balding that cannot be covered up, that’s where outside treatments come in.
The goal of all hair loss treatments and scalp improvement therapies is to nourish a healthy environment, inhibit or reduce the shedding and establish a stronger foundation on which your hair follicles can be nurtured, and promote regrowth.
According to the cause of your hair loss problems, there are several treatments that may work well for you. In this article, we’ll outline the common treatments: invasive (surgical) treatments, minimally-invasive treatments, the non-invasive treatments, off-the-shelf products as well as simple home remedies that have proven effective.
Cosmetic surgeries may not be recommended as a treatment for all cases. While the results are immediately visible, the side effects are not to be taken lightly.
These can include allergic reactions, death of skin tissue leading to the death of the hair follicles, a visible scar on the head, or disrupted hair growth patterns.
Involving lesser physical trauma to the body, this form of scalp treatment can include micro-needling, which uses tiny needles to stimulate hair growth. The slight pricks of the needles are sufficient to stimulate the scalp and reactivate your hair follicles, encouraging hair regrowth.
Non-invasive treatments include electrical therapy, like the Scalpelectroporation® (S.E.P.) technology which promises a painless and quick solution to solve nearly all hair loss and scalp problems. Other treatments that are needle-free include the effective low level light therapy (or laser therapy) that is painless but yields immediate and visible results as well.
The most common treatment to combat hair loss in both men and women is Minoxidil, or Rogaine. Due to its side effects, however, it is not recommended for minor hair shedding or individuals with pre-existing scalp conditions. Taking drug treatments like Rogaine may worsen the poor conditions of the scalp.
While they are easy on the wallet, most home remedies like slathering onion juice on your scalp may prove effective for some. It is the substance in its juice that promotes hair regrowth, seeing nearly 75% of participants in a study report an increase in hair growth. However, this still needs more research to prove its effectiveness.
Among all the available treatment options, non-invasive treatments probably have the biggest advantage over the others.
