Male And Female Hair Loss
Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss. There are many different types of hair loss with different causes. Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss affecting men. Hair loss can also affect women ( Female-pattern baldness). For both men and women, coping with hair loss can be difficult.
Male-pattern baldness follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. With female-pattern baldness, hair usually only thins on top of the head in a “T” or inverted “T” shape. Male and female-pattern baldness may also be called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia. Male-pattern baldness runs in families. It is not clear if this is the case with female-pattern baldness.
