It is often said that miniaturization of hairs (progressive thinning of hairs) is a main feature specific to men and women with androgenetic alopecia. This is not entirely accurate. Miniaturization can be seen in many conditions including traction alopecia (shown here), alopecia areata as well as androgenetic alopecia.
