Female Pattern Baldness

The most common type of hair loss in women.

Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL) is a progressive condition. Hair near the temple may recede and without treatment, some women eventually develop widespread thinning.

Signs & Symptoms

Hair thins mainly on the top and crown of the scalp. It usually starts with a widening through the center hair part. This pattern of hair loss is known as Christmas tree pattern

  • The front hairline remains unaffected
  • Hair loss rarely progresses to total or near total baldness

Types of FPHL

Type I: small amount of thinning that starts around the part
Type II: widening of the part and increased thinning around it
Type III: thinning throughout, with a see-through area at the top of the scalp

Common Causes

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Hormonal fluctuations


Depending on the severity of hair loss and quality of the hair follicle, certain measures can be taken to prevent further hair loss and promote new hair growth
