How Female Pattern Hair Loss Is Triggered
The first signs of FPHL are often the widening in the parting or the noticeable feeling that your hair isn’t as thick or as full as usual. Female Pattern Hair Loss increases with age, with fewer than 50 percent of women having a full head of hair their entire life. There are various triggers for FPHL, the most common being genetics. The gene is usually passed down from parents and family members, but can lay dormant for years before becoming active. Medication, stress, illness and other forms of Alopecia can also be triggers of the condition.
