WHAT HAIR LOSS IN WOMEN LOOKS LIKE
Female hair loss usually consists of a more diffuse, overall thinning of the hair, which leads to increased scalp exposure. This is different from men, who most often have a receding hairline at the temples and thinning at the top or crown of the head. Women’s hairlines are usually maintained while the part line and top area behind the bangs experience the most loss.
The Ludwig Scale
Androgenic Alopecia, also known as Female Pattern Baldness, is the most common hair disorder in adult women. The Ludwig Scale is designed to classify this type of hair loss into three stages. Women will move down the scale over time. Thinning on the top of the head is followed by more significant loss (with scalp showing through the hair) until all of the hair on the crown of the head is ultimately lost.
While the Ludwig Scale helps broadly categorize female pattern hair loss, there are many women who do not fall neatly into one of these boxes or have a different hair disorder.
