About Hair Loss

Hair loss, known medically as alopecia, is a common disorder that can affect different parts of the body, especially the scalp. Normally, we lose 50 to 100 hairs a day. With this condition, the amount of hair that is lost is more than what is expected, and the lost hairs are not replaced.

The loss of hair may happen gradually over the years, or it can also happen abruptly. This can also be permanent, or it may be temporary, depending on the cause.

The American Academy of Dermatology Association has identified six types of hair loss. These are:

  • Alopecia areata – This is an autoimmune skin condition that happens when the body attacks the hair follicles. This can occur as patchy baldness in the entire area of the body or just on the scalp.
  • Central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA) – This type of hair loss is most noticeable at the center or crown of the head. This is usually permanent and is more common in Black women.
  • Female pattern hair loss – This condition usually starts affecting women in their 40s. However, it may occur later or earlier in life.
  • Frontal fibrosing alopecia – This occurs like a receding hairline that affects the front and sides of the head.
  • Male pattern hair loss – This is the leading cause of hair loss among men. This can begin in the late teens.
  • Traction alopecia – This is a reversible form of hair loss that occurs when there is repeated pulling in the hair.
