Hair Loss Women


Around 20% of women will experience some degree of hair thinning in their lifetime. Hair loss in women is generally diffuse, as compared to the characteristic pattern of baldness in men. Hairline is always maintained even in maximum thinning.

There are immense psychological effects of even the slightest of hair loss in women. This in part is due to the belief that females do not lose hair and its fine for men to lose hair. Hair loss in females is not acute and may be associated with cyclical variations. It can also be aggravated during pregnancy and at menopause as it is affected by hormonal changes.

Following is the classification of female hair loss

Type I


Type I being mild.

Type II


Type I being moderate

The diagnosis is confirmed by

  • Preservation of hairline.
  • Gradual thinning in the front & top of scalp.
