Pattern Baldness Female
Pattern Baldness (FPB) or Androgenetic Alopecia [see also Alopecia
Information ] is a genetic condition that results in permanent hairloss.
FPB is a result of hormonal activity. Testosterone in the scalp breaks down, creating
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT causes the hair follicle to weaken and ultimately
perish. The conversion from testosterone to DHT is driven by an enzyme called
5-alpha reductase, which is produced in the prostate, various adrenal glands,
and in the scalp. Over time, the action of DHT causes the hair follicle to degrade
and shortens the anagen phase.
the follicle is technically still alive and connected to a good blood supply--it
can successfully nurture a transplanted follicle which is immune to the effects
of DHT--it will grow smaller and smaller. Some follicles will gradually die, but
most will simply shrink to the size they were when you were born which produce
weaker hairs. With a steadily shorter growing cycle, more hairs are shed, the
hairs becoming thinner and thinner until they are too fine to survive daily wear
and tear. Balding hair gradually changes from long, thick, coarse, pigmented hair
into fine sprouts.
pattern baldness usually begins about age 30, becomes noticeable around age 40,
and may be even more noticeable after menopause. Female hairloss is usually an
overall thinning -- two hairs where five used to be--rather than a bald area on
top of the head, although women may have a receding hairline, too. It's estimated
that about 20 million American women experience such hairloss. Hairloss in both
men and women is again, partly genetic and partly hormonal.
severe illness, and emotional stress can cause hairloss. The body simply shuts
down production of hair during periods of stress in order to devote its energies
toward repairing vital body structures. In many cases there is a delay between
the actual event and the onset of hairloss. Furthermore, there can be another
long delay prior to the return of noticeable hair regrowth. This means that the
total hairloss and regrowth cycle can last 6 months or possibly longer when induced
by physical or emotional stress. There are some health conditions which may go
undetected that can contribute to hairloss -- these include anemia or low blood
count and thyroid abnormalities. Both of these conditions can be detected by a
simple, inexpensive blood test.
may experience some noticeable hairloss in the wake of a major hormonal change.
In most cases though, the condition does not become terribly advanced. Post pregnancy
hormone conditions can be a cause of this type of hairloss as can discontinuation
of birth control pills, menopause and menstrual cycles. In most cases though,
the condition is temporary. Many women discover that their hair will grow back
to its former luster within a year.
may also occur due to dieting. Franchised diet programs which are designed or
administered under the directions of a physician with prescribed meals, dietary
supplements and vitamin ingestion have become very popular. Sometimes the client
is told that vitamins are a necessary part of the program to prevent hairloss
associated with dieting. From a dermatologist's standpoint, however, the vitamins
cannot prevent hairloss associated with rapid, significant weight loss. Furthermore,
many of these supplements are high in vitamin A which can magnify hairloss.
can choose between three accepted forms of treatment. First, you can apply topical
lotions or take oral prescription drugs that
have been licensed by the FDA. Second, you can decide to have a surgical hair
replacement done. There are several surgical procedures to choose from and it
is important to consult with a doctor before making a selection. The third option
is to purchase a non-surgical hair replacement that covers or adds hair to the
thinning portion(s) of her head.
