Female Pattern Hair Loss
Whilst in men, pattern baldness usually appears along the hairline, temples and crown, in women the condition more often, will be spread more diffusely throughout the centre of the scalp, behind the hairline.
FPHL in women can be a result of several factors. It tends to occur following the menopause, which suggests that changing levels of oestrogen or other hormones may contribute to the condition. Genetics can also play a part as well as underlying medical conditions, stress and trauma, diet or skin disorders.
