What is Alopecia?

You may have heard the term Alopecia and assume it refers to a major type of hair loss but the word is actually a medical term for any type of hair loss.  Even the early stages of hair fall such as thinning edges is a form of Alopecia.

There are several types of Alopecia and within each, there may be as little as 2 sub-types to thousands.  The main types of Alopecia are as follows:

  • Alopecia Areata
  • Scarring Alopecia
  • Traction Alopecia 
  • Androgenic Alopecia

Many people experience at least one of the above once in their life time.  

It is extremely important to address Alopecia as soon as it's detected because the likelihood to reverse the condition usually depends on how quickly action is taken.  Negligence often leads to permanent loss.

Another thing to consider is that hair grows from the inside out so balancing internal and topical treatments is often a key approach to fighting Alopecia.
