Woman's Hair Loss
An Introduction to Woman's Hair Loss
Common or "hereditary" baldness in a woman appears to be related to the same major factors that cause hair loss in men:
As in men, the genes that cause hair loss can be inherited from either your mother or father. The expression of these genes is dependent on hormones called androgens, so common hair loss in women is called "androgenic alopecia" (the same term is used for common balding in men).
There are a number of reasons why hair loss is different in a woman versus men, although all of the factors are still not completely understood. Probably the most important reason is that men have a much higher level of testosterone. This is the hormone that is responsible for male sexual characteristics and, when the body converts it to DHT, it becomes the main culprit in causing baldness. Fortunately, the much lower levels of testosterone in women spare them from the extensive hair loss that is often seen in men.
With age, some normal degree of hair loss occurs in everyone. Total hair volume decreases over time in both sexes. The hair loss associated with genetic balding is also dependent upon time to express itself. Hair loss tends to occur at different rates at different periods in one's life, with increased hair loss often occurring during periods of hormonal change, such as pregnancy and menopause.
