Classifying Women’s Hair Loss: the Ludwig System

Since genetic hair loss presents itself differently in women and men, doctors use the Ludwig system to classify the type of hair loss women are experiencing rather than using the Norwood scale, which is used for men. The Ludwig scale was created for doctors treating women struggling with Androgenetic Alopecia (genetically related hair loss). The purpose of the Ludwig Scale is to measure female hair loss and determine the most appropriate treatment or hair restoration method.

You may also consider purchasing appropriate shampoo and conditioner for your hair and scalp type. This is also the time when you should pay your doctor a visit. Scale [...]

Some of the most common bodily reactions to stress are teeth grinding or a sleepless night, but the most fascinating reaction is a hair loss disease called trichotillomania. People suffering from this disorder will literally pull their own hair out as a way to temporarily relieve stress. It sounds painful to others but to them it’s comforting.

Are Men or Women Prone to Hair Loss Causes?


The average amount of hair each of us have on our heads is 100,000 hairs. We lose approximately 100 strands of hair every day. The hair loss we have is replaced with new hair growth with the same density. As we age our hair follicles change too. The hair follicles become smaller and the hair they produce become more thin and smaller. This leads the to what is known as patterned hair loss in many of us. Both genders are affected by this and while the pattern of hair loss may differ for men and women, baldness is very common in men, and is usually genetic. The hair loss generally follows a pattern of recession at the temples and baldness on top of the head. Hair loss for women happens with a different pattern.
