What is male and female pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples. During female-pattern baldness, hair usually only thins on top of the head. This is because of the hair follicle shrinking and being unable to grow new hair which are caused by hormones and genetic predisposition.

Male and female pattern baldness is also called androgenic or androgenetic alopecia. Male-pattern baldness is a condition that runs in families, but it is not clear if this is the case with female-pattern baldness.

What are male and female pattern baldness symptoms?

The symptoms of male pattern baldness are usually characterised by the thinning of hair at the hairline, which will recede and form an M shape. For women, noticeable thinning of the hairline and parting could indicate female pattern baldness.
