Who said miniaturization only happens in AGA?

Miniaturization of Hairs

It is often said that the "miniaturization" of hairs (ie the progressive thinning of hairs) is a key feature specific to men and women with androgenetic alopecia. However, this is not accurate.

Miniaturization can be seen in many conditions including traction alopecia, alopecia areata (shown here) as well as androgenetic alopecia.
