Loss of female hair is not the same as male hair loss determined
by heredity. Female hair loss is temporary and is seldom an
advance warning of baldness. Transient loss of hair should
not, however, be ignored. It is possible for a woman to suffer
from hormonal hair loss leading to baldness.
- Severe emotional stress
- Under medical treatment
- Hormonal hair loss
Aminexil provides optimal nourishment for
you hair. Because a woman is also troubled by hormones (for
the reasons previously stated) Aminexil can quickly control
Hair growth is stimulated and lost hair
starts to grow back. Don't wait too long, because being female
means you are open to remarks like "Give it some time
and it will return to normal" or "that is common
Our experience is that most women's hair does not completely
grow back. This is why treatment is an invaluable investment
as it leads to the once enjoyed 'crowning glory'. During pregnancy
it is not recommended to use Aminexil. The hair loss will
only start after giving birth. Use the treatment when the
hair loss begins.
What if I have hormonal hair loss?
The following photos show typical female hormonal hair loss
Typical female baldness begins with a generalized thinning
of the whole scalp. Contrary to male pattern baldness is that
no receding hairlines or hair loss on the crown takes place.
A generalized thinning of the hair occurs. It is seldom that
a man displays the same type of hair loss pattern as a woman
How does hair loss start?
Hair loss is a normal symptom. 50 to 60 hairs are shed
each day from a normal scalp. Losing more than 60 hairs a
day is called excessive hair loss and leads to generalized
thinning of the hair. Hair becomes fine in texture. Loss of
hair in men is often determined by heredity or by the Allopetia
Androgenetic hormone. Hair loss in women is often caused by
pregnancy, stress, fatigue or medical treatment.
A new discovery has been made in finding
out what actually causes hair loss, namely: the hardening
of collagen. Persons who do not suffer from hair loss have
supple collagen and persons who begin showing signs of hair
loss have hardened collagen. Collagen hardening interferes
with the healthy functioning of the hair roots. The vital
exchange process of the hair follicle cycle is disrupted and
the hair becomes suffocated.
Under a microscope
The hardening prevents hair growth. The hair cycle slowly
becomes disrupted and more hair is shed than normal. In time
hair growth stops completely and baldness results. Here you
see an example of a hair follicle as seen under a microscope.

free of collagen hardening

Research by dermatologists
Mr. I. Boersma is a Dutch dermatologist who has researched
the influences of collagen hardening for ten years. He has
reached the following conclusions:
Reasons in women:
- pregnancy, stress, fatigue
- medical treatment
Result: collagen hardening
What does it mean?
Collagen hardening results in a shortened hair-growing phase.
The hair follicle ages quickly and within a few years baldness
is reality. It is precisely this discovery that has brought
about an evolution in the baldness and hair loss subject.
We are now in a position to prevent untimely hair loss. Studies
carried out in hair/skin clinics, both world-wide and in Holland,
have shown that men suffering from Allopetia Androgenetic
are benefiting from the Aminexil treatment for hair loss.
Aminexil fights the hardening of the hair follicle in such
a way that hair continues to grow normally. The life cycle
of the hair is optimized and hair is not prematurely lost.
