FEMALE BALDNESS: When women lose scalp hair it is called "hairloss", not "baldness."! many medications are responsible for women's hairloss. Anemia, homone imbalance, crash dieting, stress, deficiencies in certain supplements & vitamins. See a dermatologist who might be able to figure out the "whys" of your problem and recommend accordingly. Do not worry!
