Female Pattern Hair Loss vs. Telogen Effluvium

Female pattern hair loss differs from Telogen Effluvium in a few major ways. It’s important to understand the difference between these two conditions, as early detection requires understanding the symptoms of each. For example, female pattern hair loss manifests itself as during a period of hormonal change. Women in their late teens, early 20’s, and 50’s are most susceptible. By contrast, Telogen Effluvium is most commonly associated with a period of intense stress. The period of stress can be long and drawn-out, like a divorce proceeding. Or, it can be quick and abrupt, like a car accident. In either event, the stress may cause the hair follicles to go into a resting phases that eventually leads to thinning or balding throughout the scalp.
