Female Pattern Hair Loss Classification

What causes hair loss in women, and how can it be prevented?

Women with androgenetic alopecia are more likely to suffer from female pattern hair loss (FPHL). FPHL affects a large number of women. The hair loss rate for women begins to decline around the age of 50 and less than half of women reach the age of 80 with a full head of hair.

If you’re suffering with FPHL, you’ll notice your hair become thinner and thinner all over your scalp. Approximately 50-100 hairs are shed each day. In addition to FPHL, another disorder known as persistent telogen effluvium causes excessive hair loss. Identifying these disorders is critical since the treatment for each differs.

When it comes to hair loss, female pattern baldness (FPHL) differs greatly from male pattern baldness, which often begins with receding hairlines and proceeds to a large bald patch at the crown of one’s head. Female pattern baldness is rare unless there is an overabundance of androgens in the bloodstream.

Three stages of hair growth are involved

  • From two to eight years, the anagen phase (the growth phase) can last. About 85% to 90% of the hair on your head falls into this category.
  • Hair follicles shrink during the catagen phase (transition phase), which lasts roughly two to three weeks.
  • About two to four months is required for the telogen phase (the period of dormancy). The hair falls out towards the end of this period.

It takes around a month for your shorter hairs like eyelashes, arm and leg hair, and eyebrows to enter anagen. If you take care of your scalp hair, it can survive for six years or more.

How common is hair loss in women?

Men and women can both suffer from receding hairlines. However, it is expected that more than half of all women may experience visible hair thinning at some point in their lives. As many as 30 million women in the United States are affected by female-pattern hair loss (FPHL), which affects around one-third of women who are at risk.

Are there any ladies who are more likely to lose their hair? Hair loss can affect every woman or girl. However, it’s more prevalent in the following:

  • Those over the age of 40.
  • Women who recently gave birth.
  • Breast cancer survivors and those whose treatment was impacted by other drugs.
  • Women who often use harsh hair products or wear their hair in ways that strain it.
  • Women in their menopausal years.
