Statistics about Male and Female Hair Loss

Male

  • Androgenetic alopecia or common male pattern baldness (MPB) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men and can begin suffering hair loss as early as their teens or early 20s.
  • By the age of thirty-five two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss. Signs include receding hairline and gradual disappearance of hair from crown and frontal scalp
  • Genes, from both male and female parents, may influence a person’s predisposition to male or female pattern baldness

Female

  • Mistakenly thought to be a strictly male disease, women make up 40% of American hair loss sufferers. Hair loss in women can be absolutely devastating for the sufferer’s self-image and emotional well-being.
  • Women with Androgenic Alopecia, called female pattern baldness, don’t experience noticeable thinning until their 40s or later. Women experience a general thinning over the entire scalp, with the most extensive hair loss at the crown.
  • Genes, from both male and female parents, may influence a person’s predisposition to male or female pattern baldness
