For millions of women, female pattern baldness can sometimes feel like a dirty secret they'll do anything to hide. For many women, hair isn't just beautiful, it's a part of who they are.

Hair loss isn't a life threatening condition, but a receding hairline can be a sensitive topic for almost anyone. Since ancient times, hair has been a part of our culture. Thick, full hair is a sign of youth and good health. Nearly every culture treats hair with great importance, and losing it can cause catastrophic problems to our mental health.
As we grow older, we expect to lose a certain amount of hair. Receding hairlines are associated with middle age and older, and is often thought to be just part of the aging process. When you are still young however, seeing a receding hair line can be a big shock. Hair loss at a young age can make us feel older than we actually are, on top of ruining our self confidence, and impacting how we live our lives.
The number of women seeking help for hair loss has doubled in the past 10 years. The Journal of Investigating Dermatology says that stressful lifestyles are the underlying cause. Stress can cause temporary hair loss, and there is an increase in this type of hair loss among women between the ages of 18 and 40.
Seeing a brush full of hair every morning can be an unnerving experience. It can be hard, sometimes, to come to grips with hair loss, and it may feel like there are limited options on how to handle it. If you're worried about going under the knife, but also worried about your rapidly disappearing hair, there is another option that may be right for you.
