Dealing with hair loss may be extremely difficult, particularly for women. However, understanding the common causes of hair loss and levels of hair thinning in women can help you move forward with the most suitable options for treatment available.

What is Causing Your Female Pattern Baldness?

Hair loss is a very natural part of a women’s hair renewal process. When hair falls out, new hair growth replaces it. This progression is slowed down by a number of hormonal changes.  Hormonal changes may cause rapid hair loss and as these changes fluctuate, hair loss may increase.

Since men and women’s bodies work differently, the most common cause for hair loss in women is not genetic. Changes in hormone levels during menopause, pregnancy and thyroid conditions can cause temporary or even permanent hair loss.

When hormones such as estrogen and testosterone are produced more rapidly due to changes in the female body, these fluctuating hormones may cause hair loss. Fortunately, the hair loss is temporary and tends to subside in about twelve months.

Hair loss in women is more scattered around the scalp, thinning without a specific pattern, referred to female pattern baldness.

When Should You Consider Hair Transplant Surgery?

Although hair loss may be temporary for some, women can also experience patchy, unwarranted hair loss.

If you are a women who is experiencing this, it is recommended that you seek the help of a professional hair transplant specialist abroad to help you prohibit or prevent hair loss.

Types of Hair Loss in Women

Absorbed by aging, women tend to have overall hair thinning, as opposed to male hair loss in which the hairline begins to recede and/or balding is seen at the crown of the scalp. Women tend to lose hair on the crown and at their hairline. This is referred to as female pattern baldness.

The level and seriousness of hair loss in women can best be diagnosed by a knowledgeable hair transplant surgeon. The Ludwig Scale is typically used to check the level of hair loss in females.

The Ludwig Scale is divided into 3 stages, stage 3 being the most advanced.


Type 1 | Represents the early stages of Female Pattern Baldness. Thinning begins all over the scalp, but it is still hard to notice any big difference or signs of baldness. Hair loss is evenly spread throughout the scalp and might notice the hair at the top of the scalp is thinning.

Type 2 | Hair loss is more obvious in this stage and you can easily see the scalp. At least 50-70 percent of hair on top of the head has already thinned out and baldness is visible at every angle.

Type 3 | Hair loss has reached the advanced stage, in which more scalp than hair is present.
