Female Pattern Baldness
More than the men, women feel more burdens when they lose their hair. This is because they are more conscious about how they look and their confidence greatly depends on their physical appearance. To avoid a feeling of shame, there are many ways to cope with it.
Hair loss in woman effects millions worldwide and tends to come in two forms. Female patterns hair loss (which accounts for 95% of women's hair loss) and chronic hair loss. The former relates to the natural thinning process that many women experience as they grow older whereby the hair gets noticeably thinner around the crown and forehead areas. This is common at the onset of menopause and there is a marked increase in the percentage of women who suffer from this affliction as they near 40 years of age. The reason this form of hair loss occurs in women is that the levels of estrogen decline as the woman ages. This estrogen, in it's various forms, helps to counter-act the effects of the (male) hormone, testosterone that all women have in their bodies to some degree. This in turn has a minimizing effect on the levels of the testosterone variant, DHT, that is produced and it is this DHT that is primarily responsible for hair loss in women. Once a woman reaches menopause, the levels of estrogen decrease markedly, and the effects of testosterone and DHT become more evident. This in turn, leads to the thinning of the hair around the crown and forehead areas. the life cycle of the hair follicles in these areas become shorter, and the shedding of hair becomes more frequent.
