Hello. Thank you for posting.

There can be many reasons for hair loss. Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a form of scarring alopecia, characterized by a band-like pattern of hair loss on the front and sides of the scalp. It’s a progressive condition that appears as a receding hairline – similar to that in men – and can cause women to lose up to five inches of hair. Diagnosis is usually verified by the presence of the typical whitish, scarred strip of hair loss at the hairline. However, other evaluation methods may include a complete blood count, a thyroid function panel, and other hormone tests. Oral steroids and antimalarials may temporarily slow the progression of hair loss. Treatment will depend on the cause and severity of the hair loss, so your doctor would advise you on this after an evaluation.
