The top 5 reasons for hair loss in women:
Genetics, Stress, Styling,
Poor nutrition, & Hormones


95% of all hair loss
in women is caused by
Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA),
aka genetic hair loss.


Your birth control medication
might be causing hair loss,
have you asked your doctor?


Post-menopausal hormone imbalances
are the most common cause for female hair loss.

Women can suffer from hair loss genetically as well but often times, the biggest cause of hair loss and thinning hair occurs from menopause.

Other causes can be due to styling procedures and techniques. Chemicals from hair color and relaxers or perms can often lead to harmful effects if not properly applied. Moreover, tightly pulled on strands can literally pull locks out by their roots causing the hairline to diminish. This can happen if hair is pulled back too securely with a hair band, hair tie or even when being fashioned into braids.


In 7 different studies using the FDA cleared
HairMax laser device,
over 90% of participants experienced
significant hair growth.

The HairMax laser devices have been proven to effectively treat AGA in both men and women and promote hair growth in numerous clinical studies, making the devices an ideal NON-DRUG treatment for thinning hair that occurs in most women who are post-menopausal.

The HairMax laser devices are available in a number of models priced from $195.00, so they can ‘fit the pocketbook’ of everyone experiencing hair loss.
