Hair loss

Exploring the Types of Alopecia

Tied back hair

Alopecia is diverse, and so are its types. Here's a snapshot:

  • Alopecia Areata: This autoimmune condition primarily targets your scalp but can go full-body in severe cases. Hair loss can be temporary or permanent, and it's unpredictable.
  • Alopecia Barbae: Say hello to unexpected gaps around your beard area. This condition creates round patches of hair loss around your neck, cheeks, and jawline.
  • Traction Alopecia: Tight hairstyles that pull at the roots? They could lead to temporary or permanent hair loss.
  • Telogen Effluvium: Triggered by stress, trauma, or medications, this type leads to excessive hair shedding but can be treated.
  • Androgenetic Alopecia: Common in both genders, this type often results in permanent temple hair loss.
