Around 45 percent of this blog’s readership consists of females. One would never guess that number when considering the fact that 90 percent of the comments to my posts are made my men (and almost 100 percent of the foolish comments are accounted for by men). I will probably update this post in more detail in the coming months (or create new posts on subjects related to women’s hair loss treatments), but wanted to create this one asap in order to acknowledge the neglected 45 percent.

Women’s Hair Loss Forums
On most of the major English language men’s hair loss forums, there are also women’s hair loss sub-forums if you scroll down a bit. There are also various separate women’s hair loss forums out there. Below I list the most active and useful ones:

Groundbreaking Female Hair Loss Researchers
I have mentioned before that an increasing number of hair loss researchers are now female. They still account for a minority of all researchers, but the trend in most fields of study nowadays is that women are becoming increasingly more represented. A select few of the below female researchers perhaps also have their own practice and are seeing new patients in case you want to try contacting them. I would assume that all of them are especially experienced in advising female patients. Note that I have covered virtually all the below researchers on this blog before, and you can use the search box at the top for more information on each person.
