How many women here have the male pattern of Androgenetic Alopecia? What about DUPA (Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia)? How about APKH (Acquired Progressive Kinking of the Hair)? For those of you with the male Norwood pattern, don't you think the female Ludwig pattern is much more forgiving? I have friends with the Ludwig pattern and they are all jealous of my hair because I can wear tape in extensions and cut bangs and no one can see my hair loss, but I have 56 hair extensions in and they are failing to work as I'm also thinning diffusely and it is becoming more difficult to hide the plastic tape pieces. My sides from ear to ear have receded and my temples are almost 2 inches back! My hairline across the forehead is now receding. My temples are literally slick bald and shiny now, I used to get by with Batiste tinted dry shampoo or root touch up and I could still wear my hair up at the gym, etc. Now it is like spraying tint on skin, even my vellus hair has reduced at the temples, it's that Mr. Clean look there now. I worried about FFA but it's not, it's just Androgenetic Alopecia...although I never had a biopsy. It's so unfair to have the male pattern, sure I'm able to hide my loss easier for a little while, but ultimately I will end up in a full wig and women with Ludwig can pull off toppers. Women who retain their hairline still look like themselves, once you lose the hairline you no longer look the same, even your head looks larger. There is even a stupid theory about MPB being caused by bone enlargement AKA skull expansion theory...it's ridiculous..it's just your forehead/temple area looks huge when you don't have a hairline. Who knows, maybe the theory has some weight if DHT is hypothesized to promote bone formation and growth...but my DHT is always flagged low and won't even register within the lab range...I guess I have a super duper sensitivity to it... Doesn't help that my hair loss appears to be aggressive too, early 2018 I had no temple recession that anyone could visibly notice (including myself). I lost most of my hair within about a year thanks to a massive TE, which ended in August 2018, but no density ever filled back in, my hair just progressively became thinner and thinner. I think I'm destined to end up like Riff Raff from Rocky Horror. Seriously.
