Thinning Hair & Hair Loss Woman

Thinning hair can be a common issue for women of all ages, and it is a normal occurrence for most of our clients at some stage of their life. In fact, most women will experience some degree of hair thinning as they age. It’s important to understand the different causes of thinning hair so you can take the appropriate steps to address it. At the Hair Club in Dublin we have a range of hair piece that will create more natural volume on your crown area.

Also it’s important to understand that hair thinning is caused by many different factors. These can range from genetics and hormones to lifestyle and medical conditions. Genetic predisposition is one of the main causes of hair thinning in women. If you have a family history of thinning hair, you may be more likely to experience it yourself. Hormonal changes can also cause hair thinning. For example, women who are pregnant or going through menopause often experience hair thinning. In addition, certain medical conditions such as thyroid disease and lupus can cause hair thinning. One of our most popular products is the Mayfair Collection of hair toppers as they simply clip-in and out in seconds.

Lifestyle factors can also play a role in hair thinning. If you’re not getting enough sleep, eating a balanced diet, or exercising regularly, you may experience hair thinning. Additionally, using certain hair products, styling tools, and treatments can cause damage to your hair, leading to thinning.

The good news is that there are a number of treatments and solutions available to help you deal with thinning hair. If you’re experiencing thinning hair, it’s important to speak to your doctor about the best course of action for you. Your doctor may recommend medications, lifestyle changes, or other treatments. Additionally, there are a number of products available to help reduce the appearance of thinning hair, such as volumizing shampoos and conditioners. Hair thinning can be a difficult experience, but it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. With the right treatments and lifestyle changes, you can start to see improvements in your hair. In the interim period many of our clients will opt for a non instrusive solution like a human hair wig or hair topper.

Hair Loss

Women across Ireland and beyond experience hair loss for a variety of reasons, and not all of them can be attributed to female pattern baldness. While hair loss is more common in men, it can occur in women as well. For the many clients we see at the Hair Club in Dublin hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors such as hormonal changes, stress, diet, medication, and aging. Hormonal changes, such as those experienced during pregnancy, menopause, and other hormone-related issues, can cause a sudden change in the amount of hair a woman has. Stress, both physical and emotional, can lead to hair loss as well.

A poor Diet can also play a role in hair loss, as a lack of essential vitamins and minerals can lead to thinning hair. Certain medications, such as those used to treat high blood pressure and depression, can also lead to hair loss in women. And finally, the natural aging process can lead to hair loss as well. Fortunately, there are treatments available to help women combat hair loss. These treatments range from lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet and reducing stress, to medical treatments such as medications, topical treatments, and laser therapies.

For most women, hair loss is not a permanent condition, and can be treated with the right combination of lifestyle changes and medical treatments. If you are concerned about your hair loss you can book a consultation with us a we can show you our extensive collection of wigs and hair pieces.

Will you require a wig during chemotherapy?

Dolores is the owner of the Hair Club in Dublin which was Ireland's first purpose built wigs studio. Over the course of the last twenty years Dolores has met and assisted hundreds of amazing woman from across Ireland that have been recently diagnosed with cancer that may require advice on a hair piece or wig during their treatment. 

Recently, Dolores herself was diagnosed with cancer and she decided from the outset that she would like to document her experience of going through chemotherapy, hospital visits and overall progress of how she was dealing emotionally during this difficult phase in her life. With Dolores's particular diagnoses which is bowel cancer, she was informed by the oncologist doctors at St James Hospital in Dublin that she would not lose her hair due to the specific type of chemotherapy treatment she is undergoing. From our experience many clients with Breast cancer will temporarily lose their hair during chemo.
