Study Reveals Divorced & Widowed Women Have More Hair Loss

Two new studies being presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal several predictors of female hair loss. Of course genetics play a role, but other outside factors are also shown to contribute to hair loss. One of the studies examined 84 female identical twins and found that the number one predictor of hair loss was their marital status, i.e., those divorced or widowed exhibited more hair loss than married women. (Just in case you needed yet another reason to fight for your marriage.) Other contributing factors included heavy smoking, which resulted in hair loss in the temple area and heavy alcohol consumption resulting in font hair loss (interestingly, women who partook in moderate drinking—two drinks a week—experienced less temporal hair loss than their twin). 

There are, of course, many other factors that need to be considered with this study before just accepting it as fact. Other outside factors such as exercise, hypertension and so forth must also be taken into consideration and factored in. For more on these two studies, click here to read the press release.

This doesn't take into consideration that marriages that had divorced were probably very stressful and difficult and that both parties were probably severely unhappy, or even depressed for years!   If your marriage was fulfilling and you can make it together through thick and thin - you probably didn't go through the hell of a marriage for years.  Someone needs to think about that.
