Androgenetic Alopecia A Genetic Hair Loss Condition In Women

This condition is also suffered by women but not to the extent as it is in the case of men.  Studies indicate that a baldness pattern to some extent is experience by almost half the women who have completed forty years of age.

Baldness manifests in men and women differently. Hair atrophies which are the catalyst are susceptible to DHT or Dihydrotestosterone a hormone in a connection that is hereditary, which in men is not quite apparent. The condition is experienced by women at random. However in men, the condition is caused by genetic associations as baldness is seen amongst grandfathers and fathers.
