Androgenic alopecia is sometimes known as female pattern baldness. While this is typically a disease that is related to men, women are just as susceptible. It is mostly characterized by a thinning on all areas of the scalp, rather than the patterned thinning that most men have.
It used to be thought that too much testosterone was the main factor in androgenic alopecia, it is now understood that DHT is the suspect. Heredity and genes play a large part in this due to the hormones in our bodies.
