CAUSES OF FEMALE HAIR LOSS

Female Pattern Baldness

"I started losing my hair in my thirties. My Dad started losing his hair around that time too."

Cathy, 59.

Female Pattern Baldness or Female Pattern Hair Loss is a form of Alopecia called Androgenic or Androgenetic Alopecia (APA). It is the most common type of hair loss affecting approximately 50% of women over 65 and typically presents itself as thinning at the crown of the head. Because it is caused by a number of genetic and hormonal factors, it also affects younger women.

Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is the main hormone responsible for APA in genetically susceptible individuals. DHT causes hair loss by inducing a change in the hair follicles. The hairs produced by the follicles affected by DHT become progressively smaller until eventually the follicles shrink completely and stop producing hair.
