Common Types of Hair Loss
No matter if you are a male or female, hair loss is one of the most common issues that can affect you as you age. Hair loss is most commonly referred to as alopecia. Alopecia is commonly characterized by patchy hair loss, and is essentially the dermatological term for hair loss.
Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder – an illness in which the body’s own immune system begins it attack itself and other areas of the body. In the case of alopecia, the immune system attacks hair follicle cells, assuming them to be harmful invaders.
Hair loss can result in any number of ways, but most often occurring in large circular clumps along the crown of the head, the top, center area where most often men and women develop their initial “bald spot”. In some individuals suffering from alopecia, alopecia can be temporary, but it is often somewhat permanent as well. There are a number of different types of alopecia, we go further into detail below.
Types of Hair Loss
There are a number of different types of alopecia. Each with its own specific causes, and symptoms. Some of the most common forms of alopecia include:
For women, Female Pattern Baldness doesn’t exhibit symptoms until they are well into their 40’s or even later. Women will experience thinning hair all around their heads, with most of the hair loss coming at the top of their head. It is common to see women with bald spots in th center of head, sometimes covered by longer hair along the outer area.
