Female-pattern hair loss, which usually has a strong genetic component that can be inherited from either the mother or father. Also referred to as androgenetic alopecia, this type of hair loss can start as early as the late teens — and the earlier it starts, the more severe the hair loss tends to be.
Most women with pattern hair loss don’t get a receding hairline or bald spot on top of the scalp as is common in men. Instead, there is visible thinning over the crown. In men and women, hairs are miniaturized because of a shortened growth cycle where the hair stays on the head for a shorter period of time. These wispy hairs, which resemble forearm hairs, do not achieve their usual length.
Other causes include androgenetic alopecia, fungal infection, trauma, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies (e.g. Iron deficiency) and autoimmune diseases.
Female hair loss treatment
Minoxidil (Rogaine) 5% is the only topical medication approved by the FDA for female-pattern hair loss. The once daily use foam treatment regrows hair in 81% of the women who try it.
In some cases, a hormonal abnormality, such as excess male hormones known as androgens, may be responsible for hair loss in women. One clue that hormones are involved is if the hair loss pattern resembles that of a man’s hair loss. This can be treated with prescription medications such as spironolactone or oral contraceptives.

Hair Transplantation: Hair Transplant is a surgical technique that works mainly by the extracting hair from a Hair loss resistant area and planting them to a bald part. It can reinstate eyebrows, eyelashes, beard hair, and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as Facelift or previous Hair Transplants.
Hair Weaving: Hair Weaving is a nonsurgical technique of fixing a patch of natural human hair in the bald area. The patch is attached carefully to get it merged well with the existing hair. This process gives you natural looking hair but with a fixed look.
