Defining your hair loss

Every woman’s hair loss is different and unique. But to help broadly define the nature of yours, the Ludwig Classification was created.

The Ludwig Classification characterises three stages of female pattern hair loss: Type I (mild), Type II (moderate) and Type III (extensive). In all three stages, hair loss occurs on the front and top of the scalp, with the frontal hairline relatively preserved. Sometimes hair loss is experienced on the back and sides, sometimes not.

As long as you have some stable hair on the back and/or sides of the scalp, you will be suitable for a hair restoration transplant, such as the minimally-invasive H+ Procedure.
