Hair loss is a distressing condition where many of us can find ourselves helpless and hopeless. We at Hair MD understand the way you feel when you see your hair in clumps every day. But don’t fret; you are not alone. Studies and statistics reveal that approximately 85% of adult males and more than 50% of women experience hair loss and hair thinning in India. Several studies have demonstrated that identifying the type of hair loss can help in reversing or halting baldness effectively.
Female pattern hair loss (FPHL), also called androgenetic alopecia, is women’s most common type of alopecia (hair loss). It affects approximately 30% of all susceptible women, most commonly seen after menopause. It is seen as the gradual thinning of the hair over the top of your head, noticed as a widening of the partition or increase in visibility of the scalp.

Female pattern baldness is not due to some vitamin deficiency, poor blood circulation, dandruff, or wearing hats. Each strand of hair sprouts from a tiny hole in the skin called a follicle. In general, baldness occurs when the hair follicles shrink over time, causing shorter and thinner hair. Eventually, the follicles shrink completely and stop producing new hair. However, the follicles remain alive, suggesting that it is still possible to grow new hair over time.
The reason for female pattern baldness can be attributed to:
Are you seeing noticeable areas of thin or missing hair, mainly on the top of your head, that you can see scalp skin through or is your hair partition getting wider?
Hair thinning in females is different from that seen in male pattern baldness. In female pattern baldness, hair loss is seen mainly in the front of the head and the crown. It is usually seen in the initial stages as widening of the hair part. The front hairline remains unaffected except for normal recession, which happens to everyone with the passage of time. The hair loss rarely progresses to total or near-total baldness, as it may be the case in men.
There are primarily four types of diffuse hair loss seen in females: telogen effluvium, androgenetic alopecia, anagen effluvium, and involutional alopecia.
There are several potential treatments and medications for hair loss caused by female-pattern baldness. Your dermatologist may recommend one or a combination of treatments for months or years to see the full results.
Female pattern baldness can be distressing and affect a person’s self-confidence and self-image. Women who experience excessive hair loss should talk with their dermatologist, who can help determine the cause and best treatment option. A timely diagnosis can help a person develop a treatment plan that prevents further hair loss and help restore hair growth.
