There are Different Types of Hair Loss
Hair loss (also commonly known as alopecia) can affect both females and males. Some of the most common types are listed below –
Hereditary Hair Loss (Alopecia Androgenetica) – the hair follicles inherited break down progressively overtime. Hair growth can revive over time with treatment, and it is important to preserve and strengthen the existing hair follicles.
Diffuse Hair Loss (Alopecia Diffusa) – usually only occurs on the scalp and commonly due to a hormonal imbalance (pregnancy / menopause), vitamin deficiencies, liver diseases or psychological pressure (including stress). Hair regrowth can be successful as long as the cause for the loss is eliminated.
Circular Hair Loss (Alopecia Areata) – distinct bald spots which can result in total baldness on the scalp. The cause is still not clear, however it is believed it could be an auto-immune reaction.
Hair Loss Through Chemotherapy (Alopecia Medicamentosa) – the medication used through chemotherapy inhibits the cell growth. This is mostly reversable after about three months completion of treatment.
