What is baldness?
When hair after falling does not grow back, it is called baldness. Male baldness usually begins with thinning at the hairline, followed by the appearance of a bald spot on the crown of the head.
Women rarely develop bald patches. Instead, they experience a diffused thinning of their hair.
