Female pattern baldness is a distinctive and common form of hair loss affecting women with androgenetic alopecia. 40% of women will begin to show signs of hair loss by the age of 50, and less than 45% will get to 80 without losing some hair.
The condition is marked by thinning of the hair due to either shedding, a reduction in overall hair or a combination of both. Some hair loss is normal, with average women losing between 50-100 hairs a day.
Female pattern baldness is different to another hair loss condition known as telogen effluvium.
What is The Difference Between Male or Female Pattern Baldness
The main difference between male and female pattern baldness is that it presents differently. In male pattern baldness, the thinning begins around the temples and extends up into the scalp. It is uncommon for female pattern baldness to present like this, as the males get this type of balding as a result of testosterone.
What Causes Female Pattern Baldness?
Female pattern hair loss is tied to genetics, and the baldness gene can be inherited from both parents. Most females with female pattern baldness have normal levels of androgens in their bloodstream, but the role of oestrogen is uncertain.
The condition most commonly presents after menopause.
