Ludwig Female Hairloss Scale

The following diagrams measure pattern loss typical in women. Pattern hairloss in women is typified by an overall thinning of density. Hair loss occurs over the entire top of the scalp and is not localized to the vertex. Although female pattern loss is typical in most women with pattern hair loss, it does not mean that they can not experience hair loss in a male pattern described by one of the other scales. Conversely, a small percentage of men also experience overall thinning typical of female pattern loss.
