Female patterned baldness is one of the most common forms of hair loss after male patterned baldness. It is also known as AGA (Androgenetic Alopecia). Hair plays a vital role in a woman’s life. A head full of lustrous locks for a woman exemplifies beauty, feminine grace and poise. Hairloss in women has much impact on a woman’s psyche. It is often distressing and is accompanied by low self-esteem, a forlorn sense of being less attractive along with a lot of anxiety, in social circles. Women affected by hair loss may show hair thinning on the scalp when hair is parted in the midline. The exposed area resembles a ‘Christmas Tree.’ A small percentage of women with hair loss may also show male patterned baldness.

There is a distinctive relationship, in women, between their mother, sisters, aunts and grandmothers – when it comes to hair thinning patterns. The problem tends to run in families and is passed on from one generation to the other. Unlike men, genetic hairloss in women affects the back of the head and also the sides. Hence they do not go bald like men, but lose hair diffusely all over the scalp. This happens because DHT (dihydrotestosterone) – sensitive hair follicles in women are spread diffusely all over the scalp. Females have oestrogen which is a hair-protective hormone in females. When this hormone falls below normal levels and ups the level of male hormone, testosterone in the body which results in hair loss in women. Female patterned baldness (FPB), like male patterned baldness, is triggered by hormonal imbalance in the body.
