Should I tell my friend her hair is thinning?

OK, I didn't really know where to put this, so I figured the beauty forum would probably be the best place.
I have a friend in her mid 20s who I think has the early signs of thinning hair. The only reason I've noticed it is b/c I've known her forever and I can see that it looks like the top part of her head (not the hairline or the sides) is starting to thin out. She dyes her hair occasionally, but I don't think that's whats doing it (she's never complained about itching/burning/whatever after using dye). I know her family, and she has a family history of female pattern hair loss
