Types of Thinning Hair
The most common form of hair thinning is called androgenetic alopecia, or male and female pattern baldness. Male-pattern thinning starts from the crown and spreads out and/or causes a receding hairline. Rarely, a woman may experience male-pattern hair loss. The more common experience of women is female-pattern thinning, which usually means diffused hair loss across the entire scalp. It is most noticeable on your scalp where your hair is parted, as the part appears to widen with hair loss.
The causes of male-pattern thinning are well known, but female-pattern thinning causes are much more complicated. Some possible causes include change in hormones with onset of menopause, skin diseases that lead to scarring of the hair follicles, hormone problems or endocrine conditions, too little iron, and other hereditary causes. The myriad of potential causes as well as the psychological effects of dealing with hair loss for women make it a far more complicated issue.
