Hair Loss in Women
Hair loss in women is perceived as socially unacceptable. Although most women feel they are alone in their hair loss, around 30% of women experience hair loss or thinning in their lifetime. Since most female hair loss tends to be diffuse, losing hair all over, and women usually maintain their frontal hair line, it can be less noticeable than a man’s balding. Hair loss in women can so also be disguised with existing hair, as many women choose to hide their hair loss from others. However, camouflaging the problem tends to further isolate women, making it more difficult to address. For these reasons, the psychological effects of hair loss can be significant. Many women are emotionally affected, even with modest amounts of thinning.

Hair loss in women is generally very gradual, with the rate accelerating during pregnancy and at menopause. It can also show seasonal variations and it is more easily affected by hormonal changes, medical conditions and external factors.
The diagnosis of female pattern alopecia is relatively straightforward when there is a history of gradual thinning in the front and/or top of the scalp. Although the frontal hairline is usually intact, the presence of miniaturization can usually be identified in thinning areas. However, since the diffuse pattern of hair loss can be caused by a number of medical conditions other than common genetic hair loss, a thorough evaluation is important for female transplant patients.
