Although androgenetic alopecia is generally referred to as the male form of baldness, but women can also suffer from it. This form of hair loss in women is classified according to the Ludwig scale. It is characterised by thinning hair, often concentrated exclusively on the top of the head. Androgenetic alopecia in women usually appears during menopause and is only seldom seen as an indication of an undetected illness. When it appears before menopause is reached, it may be a sign of a hormonal disorder. In such a case - especially when the woman is exceptionally hirsute or suffers from acne - an endocrinological examination is recommended to establish the cause of the hair loss. In contrast to other forms of hair loss, androgenetic alopecia is an irreversible process - once a hair has fallen out, no new hair will grow.
There are also a number of women who have a hereditary high hairline or high forehead. The appearance of a high hairline can make women look masculine and/or older than they actually are. The associated high forehead is often seen as unattractive and their hair styling is often limited to combing downward (bangs) to camouflage it. These women, even though there are no signs of hair loss, are dissatisfied with their naturally high forehead and wish they could lower their hairline to a more cosmetically pleasing location.
