What does female hair loss look like?
Female hair loss is a little less noticeable than male baldness. Rather than a receding hairline, hair loss for women often presents as a thinning of the hair behind the hairline or in the parting in the middle. A lot of women also notice when putting their hair up, the pony becomes thinner and thinner, forcing more loops on the headband. You may also notice a general thinning of hair across the top of your head (diffuse). For women, hair loss and thinning is typically a slow process but it can be stopped, and even reversed, with early intervention.
