Pattern Baldness on Sides

Pattern baldness is a common cause of why you may begin to see thinning spots on the sides of your head. Commonly referred to as androgenetic alopecia, pattern baldness allows your hair cycles to shorten and new hairs to have more superficial roots, making it possible for your hair to fall out. The pattern of baldness is also inherited.

In the female pattern of baldness, the hair’s growing process slows down. It also takes longer for new hair to start developing. The hair follicles shrink, contributing to the hair that grows thinner and smoother. This can lead to hair that falls quickly. It’s common for women to lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day, but those with a feminine history of baldness may lose a lot more. In males, the hair loss happens in the front of the head and recedes to the back until they’re bald. Women are losing their hair from all over their faces, starting with their section line. Hair in the temples can also recede. That’s why you might have a lot of thinning all over your scalp.

Main Causes

Auto-Immune Disease

Hair thinning can also be caused by alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease. With this illness, the body’s immune system tends to attack the hair follicles, allowing your hair to go through periods of falling and growing again, resulting in different degrees of hair loss, including thinning to bald spots or total baldness. Alopecia areata is increasingly common; the National Alopecia Areata Foundation reports that lots of individuals around the world are afflicted by the condition. Scarring can also affect the development of the hair on the side of the head. Identified as citric alopecia, this hair loss is caused by inflammation of the hair follicles due to skin disorders, including lichen planus and lupus. In this state, inflammation kills the stem cells and sebaceous glands of the hair on the scalp, resulting in thinning or bald spots.


Thin spots may appear on the side of your head following severe shocks to the body, such as a car crash, sickness, or even mental hardship, such as the loss of a family member. This form of hair loss is known as telogen effluvium, which happens when physical or emotional shock pushes the hair into its resting period prematurely, causing it to fall out more often.


Hair loss may also occur on the sides of your head by hairstyles that draw your hair closely away from your scalp, putting tension on your hair follicles on the sides of your head. Identified as traction alopecia, this form of hair loss is caused by hairstyles such as buns and ponytails.
