    Should I change my hair care regimen if I am a woman with female pattern hair loss?

    Dermatologist

    No. Since there is no structural problem with the hair with female-pattern hair loss, women should continue their regular hair-styling regimen. Sometimes women think they should stop washing, coloring, or perming their hair, but these things won’t impact the course of hair loss or speed up the process.

    Wash with an anti-dandruff shampoo that contains ketoconazole (an antifungal) or zinc pyrthione (an antifungal and antibacterial).
