    TLDR Hair loss in women is common, starts in late 20s, and affects 30% of women over 50.
    This study found that female androgenetic alopecia is quite common, beginning in the late 20s and reaching almost 30% in women over 50 years of age. It also suggests that female pattern alopecia may not be androgen dependent and is a different entity than male androgenetic alopecia. An unexpected observation was that many young women had characteristics of early type II male androgenetic alopecia.
