Alopecia is the medical word that is used for hair loss. Alopecia or hair loss affects about one-third of women at some point in their life. The emotional health and quality of life of a woman can be significantly impacted by alopecia. Similar to males, women have the same primary type of hair loss which is Androgenetic alopecia, also known as female (or male) pattern baldness. For women the hair on the top of the head thins which frequently leads to baldness, as does hair loss in men which typically starts above the temples and finally forms the distinctive "M" shape. When it comes to women, diffuse hair loss spreading from the top of the head increases after a gradual thinning at the part line. Women rarely get complete baldness though, and their hairlines rarely recede.
