How do women
experience hair thinning
and hair loss?

You're not alone. Pattern hair loss, also know as "androgenic alopecia," is common in women — almost half of all women experience this at some point in their lives. Because a woman's hair is typically more abundant in the first place, it's not as easy to notice.

What's going on?

As you age, your follicles remain, but the hair growing from them can start to get smaller (like arm hair) or simply not regrow.

Where does it start?

Unlike men, your frontal hairline may not change all that much. However, you could start to notice a wider middle part or you may see more scalp when you pull back your hair.

Untreated, it continues to thin.

In many cases, you'll slowly but surely see a widening part as your hair continues to thin around the crown. Since, female hair thinning is more diffuse (in other words, everywhere), you'll want to inspect multiple parts in your hair.

This scale helps you determine how advanced your hair loss may be. It can help you know what to expect if you start moving in the other direction.

Why do women experience hair thinning and hair loss?

While it has never been understood completely, the inhibitors to normal hair regrowth in some women appear to be androgens, otherwise known as "male hormones."

Male hormones?
Wait. What?

Natural androgens like testosterone and, in particular, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) are also present in women. Even though women have minimal amounts of DHT, for some of us, that's still enough to contribute to hair thinning.

DHT is powerful and cruel.

DHT is a very strong hormone — 3 to 5 times more powerful than testosterone. Typically female hormones keep the DHT in check. If there is even a slight decrease in female hormones, the balance is upset and regrowth problems can occur.

Why me?

Female thinning is poorly understood, even in modern science. But we do know that genetic makeup can have a huge impact. But— especially with women — there are key life triggers like stress, diet, medical condition, or pregnancy that can play a role.

Female hormones vs. DHT
If your hormones get out of balance, DHT can shrink your hair follicles, leaving hairs smaller and thinner than they should be.
