Types of Hair Loss

Hair loss can be caused by various diseases, hormonal imbalances, head trauma or injuries of the scalp, stress or taking certain medications. Often, hair begin to grow again while eliminating the causes of hair loss.

Androgenetic alopecia. Is linked to the sensitivity of follicles to testosterone, which is transmitted genetically. In men, androgenetic alopecia is manifested in supraoccipital zone, and for women – in the parietal and frontal.

Diffuse alopecia. In this case, the hair falls out evenly over the entire head. There are many causes of diffuse alopecia. One of them: a rigid diet with low amounts of protein consumed. In this case, the diet may help to strengthen hair. The most useful food to be included in the diet are salmon, green vegetables, legumes, nuts, dairy products. Laser hair cap helps to improve the health of follicles.

Alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is characterized by the appearance of circular skin lesions which are completely absent of hair. Such lesions may occur on the scalp, on the face, on the body. Multiple lesions may coalesce and lead to total baldness.

Scar alopecia. If skin and hair follicles are dying and dermal papillae is destroyed due to the result of physical or chemical effects, hair growth will not be renewed. In this case, only hair restoration will help.

Traumatic alopecia – a consequence of damage to the hair itself. These include:

  • Wearing up-dos, tightening the hair, frequent use of perms, hair dye.
  • Use of hair dryers, curling irons or flat irons.

If the hair follicles are not damaged, the hair growth resumes.
