Hair Thinning & Hair Loss in Women
The principal type of hair loss in women is known as androgenetic alopecia or female pattern baldness. It’s a distressing hair loss disorder and can affect both men and women alike. Yet where male pattern baldness affects specific zones, such as the very top of the scalp, for women it tends to be an overall diffuse thinning. About one-third of females experience this type of hair loss at some point in their lives and for the majority, it remains undetected to the outside world. But not every case remains unnoticeable. For certain women, hair loss can mean a widening of the central parting or diffuse thinning which exposes the whiteness of the scalp underneath.
