How a woman loses her hair is exclusive to the female gender. Yet at the same time, women"s hair loss patterns can vary greatly from woman to woman.
For example,some women experience thinning in the frontal area alone; others experience diffused hair loss just on the top of the head. then there are those whose hair thins over the entire scalp.
Whatever the pattern, the reason for thinning hair in the greatest majority of cases is androgenic,that is, hormone related. In short, a genetic condition.
Other causes can include eating disorders, yo-yo dieting, and pregnancy.
