Female pattern baldness

Female pattern baldness, or Androgenetic Alopecia, manifests differently from its male counterpart. Instead of a receding hairline or bald spot, women typically experience an initial phase of hair thinning. This thinning usually commences around the crown area, potentially causing the parting to widen over time. Additionally, hair thinning may become noticeable along the temples. It’s important to note that female pattern baldness progresses gradually and can vary in its presentation from person to person.

An estimated six million women suffer the traumatic effects of hair loss every year in Britain.

It is a subject that remains largely taboo, few women are willing to discuss it publicly as they are continually assaulted with images of models with beautiful flowing locks. Suffering in silence many often resort to spending vast amounts of money on commercially marketed treatments that can be largely ineffective.

There are various degrees of female pattern baldness that are measured using the Savin or Ludwig scales. They are a visual classification system used by dermatologists and healthcare professionals such as Brandwood Clinic to assess and categorise the degree of female pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia in women
