About Female Hair Loss

Approximately 40% of women will suffer from hair loss at some point, although female hair loss is far more complex than male hair loss and any treatment options will depend on the underlying cause.

Although men’s hair tends to recede from the forehead or crown of the head; women tend to experience more diffuse thinning. They may notice that they see more scalp when they pull their hair back; or that the parting in their hair is becoming wider.

As there are many potential causes for female hair loss; female patients require blood work and an endocrinology (hormone-related) work up to help determine the reasons behind hair loss.

About Female Hair Loss

A disturbance to the hair cycle caused by psychological or physiological stress such as pregnancy; menopause; surgery or sudden weight loss can cause temporary hair loss. Certain types of autoimmune diseases may also be responsible for diffuse shedding of hair.

When Androgenetic Alopecia or Female Pattern Hair Loss affects women the hair loss occurs in a different pattern to men, and has its own scale of measurement.

The underlying cause of hair loss must always be established before any treatment regime can be started and this is especially relevant in female hair loss because of the large variety of possible causes. A comprehensive review with our Hair Restoration surgeon is key; in many cases a non-surgical intervention may be more appropriate.
