Norwood classification


In order to classify the severity of hair loss, doctors created a series of charts categorizing various stages of hair loss. The charts are very useful when describing your hair loss to someone or as a yard stick to measure your own hair loss progression or regrowth. The charts are only relevant to Male and Female Pattern hair loss since the hair loss occurs in a predictable pattern.

The most commonly used chart for men is the one developed by Dr Hamilton and then later modified by Dr. o’Tar Norwood, called the Norwood-Hamilton scale.
