Hair Loss in Women : Dame Singapore Has the Solution

Are you grappling with the distressing effects of hair loss? Whether it’s due to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), chronic stress, poor sleep patterns, Telogen Effluvium, postpartum (after childbirth) changes, hormonal imbalances, or other factors, hair loss in women can impact confidence and self-esteem. 

At Dame, we empathize with the challenges you face and are dedicated to providing unwavering support and guidance on your path to achieving lush, healthy hair. 

Believe it or not, there are numerous reasons for hair loss and we unveil our tailored approach to combating each condition through targeted medications and personalized consultations.

Understanding Hair Loss in Women

Hair loss is a prevalent concern that affects millions of women worldwide. While shedding some hair daily is normal, excessive hair loss can signal an underlying issue. Factors such as genetics, hormonal imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, environmental stress factors,  postpartum changes, and hormonal conditions like hituism can all contribute to hair loss.

Types of Hair Loss in Women

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)-Related Hair Loss

Women with PCOS often experience hormonal imbalances, particularly elevated levels of androgens like testosterone. These hormonal fluctuations can disrupt the hair growth cycle, leading to thinning hair, scalp balding, and excess facial or body hair.

Telogen Effluvium

Telogen Effluvium is characterized by sudden and significant hair shedding, typically occurring after childbirth, major surgery, serious illness, or extreme stress. During Telogen Effluvium, a large number of hair follicles prematurely enter the resting (telogen) phase, resulting in excessive hair loss.

Stress-Induced Hair Loss

Chronic stress can trigger hormonal changes in the body, including elevated levels of cortisol, which may disrupt the hair growth cycle. Stress-induced hair loss often manifests as diffuse thinning or shedding across the scalp.

Poor Sleep-Related Hair Loss

Inadequate sleep or disrupted sleep patterns can interfere with the body’s hormonal balance and cellular repair processes, potentially leading to hair loss. Poor sleep quality may worsen existing hair loss conditions or contribute to new onset hair shedding.

Postpartum Hair Loss

Many women experience temporary hair shedding in the months following childbirth, known as postpartum hair loss. Fluctuations in hormone levels during pregnancy and the postpartum period can disrupt the hair growth cycle, causing increased hair shedding.

Hormonal Conditions such as Hirsutism

Hirsutism, a condition characterized by excessive hair growth in areas where men typically grow hair, such as the face, chest, and back. Hormonal imbalances, particularly elevated androgen levels, can contribute to hirsutism and may also impact scalp hair growth.

Exploring Hair Growth Supplements

While supplements may offer some benefits in promoting hair health, it’s essential to understand their limitations and consult a MOH certified doctor before use. Here are some popular hair growth supplements available in Singapore:


People often tout biotin, also known as vitamin B7, for its role in promoting healthy hair, skin, and nails. While biotin deficiency can contribute to hair loss, its effectiveness as a standalone treatment for hair loss in women is not well-established.

Viviscal Pro

Viviscal Pro, a hair growth supplement backed by clinical research and formulated with a proprietary blend of marine-based ingredients, aims to promote existing hair growth and combat hair thinning in women.


Miriqa is a hair growth supplement that contains a blend of vitamins, minerals, and botanical extracts, including saw palmetto and horsetail extract. It aims to nourish the hair follicles and support healthy hair growth in women with thinning hair.


Swisse Hair Skin is a supplement formulated with a blend of vitamins and minerals, including biotin, zinc, and vitamin C, aimed at supporting healthy hair, skin, and nails. While it may improve overall hair health, its effectiveness in treating specific hair loss conditions is unclear.


Blackmores offers a range of hair, skin, and nail supplements containing key nutrients like biotin, zinc, and vitamin C. While these supplements may support overall hair health, they may not address underlying causes of hair loss in women.


Vegamour offers plant-based hair growth supplements containing ingredients like saw palmetto, curcumin, and zinc. These supplements aim to promote thicker, healthier hair growth in women experiencing hair thinning or shedding.

Supplements vs. Medications

While supplements may provide some benefits for overall hair health, they may not address underlying causes of hair loss effectively. 

For women dealing with conditions like PCOS, Telogen Effluvium, or hormonal imbalances, targeted medications prescribed by a healthcare professional offer a more effective solution. 

Medications like oral minoxidil, topical minoxidil, oral spironolactone, and oral finasteride specifically target the root causes of hair loss and promote hair regrowth.

We always recommend speaking to a doctor before starting any medication.

Oral Minoxidil

Oral minoxidil is a vasodilator that enhances blood flow to the hair follicles, promoting hair growth. It can be particularly beneficial for women with PCOS-related hair loss, Telogen Effluvium, postpartum hair loss, or hormonal imbalances, as it stimulates dormant follicles to enter the active growth phase.

Topical Minoxidil

Topical minoxidil formulations are applied directly to the scalp, where they work to improve circulation and revitalize hair follicles. This treatment option is suitable for women experiencing diffuse thinning or shedding due to stress-induced hair loss, poor sleep patterns, or postpartum changes.

Oral Spironolactone

Spironolactone is an anti-androgen medication that inhibits the effects of testosterone on hair follicles. It can be effective in managing hair loss associated with PCOS, hirsutism, or hormonal imbalances by reducing androgen levels and restoring hormonal balance.

Oral Finasteride

Finasteride blocks the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a hormone implicated in hair loss. This medication is beneficial for women with PCOS-related hair loss, hirsutism, or androgenetic alopecia, as it helps to halt further hair thinning and promote regrowth.
