What Is Female Pattern Baldness
Female pattern hair loss effects 30 million women.
Understanding the hair growth cycle may help us to recognize when we may not have normal hair loss. Anagen is the first phase in hair growth. In this phase, the hair grows at an average rate of one half inch per month from its follicle. The anagen phase lasts two to six years.
Next the resting phase, or telogen, begins. Telogen usually lasts three to four months.
Towards the end of the telogen phase the hair falls out and new hair begins to grow in its place. Typically, 85 percent of your hair is in the growth phase and the remaining 15 percent is in the resting phase.
Losing 50 to 100 hairs per day is normal. A healthy scalp usually has around 100,000 hairs.
When the rate of shedding exceeds that of new growth, new growth is thinner than the hair that was shed, or shedding happens in patches, any of these situations may indicate androgenetic alopecia.
