Hair loss (alopecia) and hair thinning can cause anxiety in men and women. While some daily loss of hair (up to 100 hairs a day) is normal, excessive loss and shedding can be cause for concern at any age. You may notice excess hair in your hair brush, on your pillow, or when washing your hair. You may also notice apparent hair thinning or bald spots near your hairline, at the back of your head or overall.
There are different types of alopecia and the causes and treatments can vary. Some of the most common types of disorders resulting in hair loss are: Female & male pattern baldness (Androgenetic Alopecia), patchy hair loss (Alopecia Areata), or Traction Alopecia from pulling the hair follicles too tightly. Alopecia can stem from various causes including illness, hormones and vitamin deficiencies.
In order to effectively treat alopecia, it is important to determine what is causing it.
