Hair Loss

Hair loss is otherwise known as alopecia, which can occur in various forms and for a variety of reasons.

Common Types Of Hair Loss



  • Androgenetic Alopecia (Male-pattern or Female-pattern baldness): Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss and is primarily hereditary. It is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic predisposition and hormonal factors. In men, it typically manifests as a receding hairline and thinning at the crown, while in women, it often leads to diffuse thinning throughout the scalp.
  • Alopecia Areata: Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, leading to sudden, patchy hair loss. The exact cause is unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune factors.
  • Telogen Effluvium: Telogen effluvium is a temporary form of hair loss that occurs when a large number of hair follicles prematurely enter the telogen (resting) phase of the hair growth cycle, leading to increased shedding. It can be triggered by factors such as stress, illness, hormonal changes, medications, nutritional deficiencies, or physical trauma.
  • Traction Alopecia: Traction alopecia occurs when constant pulling or tension on the hair follicles leads to damage and subsequent hair loss. It is commonly caused by hairstyles that involve tight ponytails, braids, or hair extensions, as well as frequent use of hair styling tools.
  • Scarring Alopecia: Scarring alopecia, also known as cicatricial alopecia, occurs when inflammation or damage to the hair follicles results in scar tissue formation, preventing hair growth. It can be caused by various conditions such as autoimmune diseases, infections, inflammatory skin disorders, or physical trauma.
  • Trichotillomania: Trichotillomania is a psychiatric disorder characterized by the compulsive urge to pull out one’s hair, leading to noticeable hair loss and bald patches. The exact cause is unknown but is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors.
  • Nutritional Alopecia: Cause: Deficiencies of iron, protein, vitamin D, zinc, fatty acids, and vitamin B12 can lead to alopecia. Of these, in North America, the most common cause of nutritional alopecia is iron deficiency, particularly in women.
