Hair Loss In Women
Hair loss at middle age for women is due to a reduction in estrogen. By reducing the estrogen that protects your hair, the balance of estrogen to testosterone goes down, and having more testosterone breaks down into DHT, which is the major cause of hair loss, particularly for women by middle age.
You can see the circular androgen receptors and blood vessels flowing. But the DHT, as seen here in green, is blocking the flow of the capillaries and blood supply to the androgen receptors. Once DHT binds to the androgen receptors, the receptors are no longer able to receive nutrients and energy, which is essential for healthy hair growth. As the DHT continues to cut off the flow of oxygen, nutrients and energy, the hair miniaturizes, becomes dormant and eventually dies.
