Male vs. Female Hair Loss

Though hair loss is typically associated with males, a significant percentage of females experience hair loss as well. More than 40 million men and nearly 30 million women suffer from hair loss in North America today. While both sexes are susceptible to hair loss, the pattern in which the hair is lost differs in men and women.

Male pattern baldness can begin at a very early age, even as young as the teens or early 20s. Signs of male pattern baldness include a receding hairline at the temples and thinning at the top or crown of the head, which can eventually result in baldness. Female hair loss usually consists of an overall thinning of the hair in a diffuse manner, leading to increased scalp exposure.
