Hair loss is increasing in female patients these days. Hair loss in women, especially in the Indian context, is a big reason to worry. A man would not mind having a bald patch after he has crossed the middle age. But this gets complicated for a woman across all age groups both cosmetically and medically.
In contrast to male pattern hair loss, in females it is the central parting line which is affected first.
Ludwig’s classification of Female pattern hair loss can be seen in the chart.
Similar to male pattern baldness, Female Pattern Hair Loss is also genetically predisposed. It is also associated with a lot of other factors such as stress, nutritional deficiency, hormonal imbalance, delivery, menopause, oral contraceptives, dieting and medication.
One can identify Female Pattern Hair Loss through following symptoms-
- Hair thinning on the scalp with broader mid-parting
- Increased hair fall
