Androgenetic alopecia is the common form of hair loss in both men and women, however the pattern of hair loss in women differs from male pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head, and the hairline does not recede. Androgenetic alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.
One of the major causes of hair loss in women is a result of heat or chemical damage as a result of styling. The use of hair straighteners, curlers and hair dryers, along with bleach and dyes leads to hair follicles damage and causes hair to fall out.

For this reason, a hair transplant procedure performed on a woman requires a relatively high degree of expertise.
