Male pattern hair loss usually begins with a receding hairline and then the hair at the top of the head and at the back starts to go. But in female pattern baldness, the hair loss starts with general thinning all over the scalp with the most hair loss at the crown of the head. Although the hairline remains almost intact, the hair behind the hairline starts to thin and results in a bald spot.
Genetics is the main cause of female pattern baldness and it can come from either side of the family. As with male baldness, the chief culprit remains dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a chemical that binds to the hair follicles and causes them to die. But the degree of baldness differs in women as compared to men because of the protection provided by the female hormone estrogen.
There are also other factors responsible for female pattern baldness, namely:
