What are the leading causes of female hair loss?

It's a problem that affects over eight million people in the UK, yet so many women are scared to talk about hair loss, seeing it as somehow a male problem.

This month is Hair Loss Awareness Month, an opportunity to raise awareness around the issue of hair loss, and today trichologist Trisha Buller is here to discuss the leading causes behind hair loss in women and what can be done to tackle the problem. Joining her is Mary Corrigan, a woman who knows just what it's like to suffer from hair loss, having at one point lost 90% of the hair on her head.
