The good news about most women’s hair loss conditions is that they are treatable, or at the very least, can be prevented or reversed.

Causes can range from genetics, stress or various medical issues and, depending on the diagnosis, hair loss can either be temporary or ongoing.

Female Pattern Hair Loss When you need to seek help

Also known as Androgenetic Alopecia, the hereditary condition of Female Pattern Hair Loss is one of the most common ones affecting women.
Thinning hair found around the top of the head and around the crown area, with hair remaining unaffected from the sides and back of the scalp, are common signs of Female Pattern Hair Loss.

Shedding more hair than usual, or your part becoming wider, are other symptoms. This may also lead to a receding hair line where hair thins around the temple area.

Other Women's Hair Loss Conditions Education for Women

Other less common hair loss conditions in women, and much rarer than those listed above, include:

Cicatricial alopecia

Also known as ‘scarring alopecia’, is a group of rare hair loss conditions, one of which – Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia – is specific to women. Targeting the hair follicles directly, these conditions can also include hair loss as a result of scarring following burns or radiation.


Is an extremely rare hair loss condition, also known as Alopecia Cicatrisata. Identified by patchy hair loss and bald patches that sometimes contain individual healthy hairs, the condition mainly affects women and occasionally children.


Is a self-inflicted condition which sees sufferers repeatedly pull, tug at or twist their hair until it comes out.


Is a chronic inflammatory disease which causes the body’s immune system to turn on its own tissues and organs.

Perhaps best known for the butterfly-shaped rash it can cause across the nose and cheeks, Lupus can also cause diffuse hair loss.

Follicular Degeneration Syndrome (FDS)

also known as Central Progressive Alopecia and Hot Comb Alopecia. Starting as a clearly defined patch of diffuse hair loss, it is a form of scarring alopecia that can then spread and spiral out across the scalp vertex.

The most extreme forms of alopecia are Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis. Whilst Alopecia Totalis causes all hair to be lost from the head (scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, etc.), Alopecia Universalis causes complete hair loss from head to toe.

Frequently Asked Questions

The two main culprits are genetics (female pattern hair loss) and hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause, etc.). These can cause gradual thinning on the crown or top of the head, with the hair often remaining on the sides and back. Other possibilities include stress, certain medical conditions, and even hairstyling habits.
