Hair loss is also known as Alopecia. The most common form of hair loss is called pattern baldness or Androgenetic alopecia. Around 95 percent of people suffer from this type of hair loss or scalp condition. This is related to heredity and in most cases it’s permanent. The second most common type of hair loss is Alopecia areata. It can be temporary and can involve hair loss only on your scalp or spread to your whole body. Its specific cause is unknown.
Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp and can be the result of heredity, certain medications, or an underlying medical condition. Anyone — men, women, and children — can experience hair loss.
Causes of Hair Loss
Baldness is not usually caused by a disease, but is related to aging, heredity, and testosterone. In addition to the common male and female patterns from a combination of these factors, other possible causes of hair loss, especially if in an unusual pattern, include:
- Hormonal changes (for example, thyroid disease, childbirth, or use of the birth control pill)
- A serious illness (like a tumor of the ovary or adrenal glands) or fever
- Medication such as cancer chemotherapy
- Excessive shampooing and blow-drying
- Permanent hair straightening
- Emotional or physical stress
- Nervous habits such as continual hair pulling or scalp rubbing
- Burns or radiation therapy
- Alopecia areata — bald patches that develop on the scalp, beard, and, possibly, eyebrows. Eyelashes may fall out as well. This is thought to be an immune disorder.
- Tinea capitis (ringworm of the scalp)
- Studies have shown that poor nutrition, limited food intake, and deficiencies in certain nutrients can cause thinning.
Hair Loss Symptoms
Symptoms of alopecia include hair loss in patches usually in circular patterns, dandruff, skin lesions, and scarring. Alopecia areata usually shows in unusual hair loss areas e.g. eyebrows, the backside of the head, or above the ears where usually the male pattern baldness does not affect. In male-pattern hair loss, loss and thinning begin at the temples and the crown and either thins out or falls out. Female-pattern hair loss occurs at the frontal and parietal region of the head
