Female pattern hair loss, also known as androgenetic alopecia, is one of the most common types of hair loss. This is the same condition that we typically think of as affecting men, but looks different in women. Women with androgenetic alopecia may have thick, or even long hair, but often have thinning or flattening on the frontal scalp. Unlike men, women with this condition usually maintain their hair line.
Although currently there is not cure for female pattern hair loss, there are many effective treatments. These include minoxidil (Rogaine), red light, Alma TED, PRP, hair transplant and more.
Below is a woman with success after 4 months of minoxidil.
