A guide to the varied and more advanced forms of hair loss including alopecia areata, totalis, universalis, childrens hair loss, and other hair loss disorders. This guide provides information on the presentation, treatments and will connect you to important support resources.
Hair loss does not always appear as a result of traditional means. There are forms of hair loss which can come on gradually or very suddenly and can change a person’s life forever. The causes are often autoimmune, hormonal, or some medical condition which causes the hair to be rejected from the body. These conditions most often present themselves as sudden patchy hair loss, a total loss of head or body hair, the result of infection, or psychological conditions (in the case of certain hair disorders).
A guide for men and women suffering from AA, a form of hair loss that is characterized by small or large patches of hair loss on the scalp.
A guide for men and women who are suffering from AT, a condition characterized by total loss of hair on the head.
A guide for men and women who are suffering from AU, a variant type of Areata which is characterized by total loss of body hair.
While “Androgenetic” is the term used for typical Male Pattern Baldness, there are three major types of hair loss which are commonly referred to just as “Alopecia”. These are Areata, Totalis, and Universalis. These types of hair loss are covered in this Guide along with Children’s hair loss and other types of disorders. If you are a male or female experiencing diffuse thinning, recession or a bald spot, please review our Men’s Guide or our Women’s Guide.
In this guide, we will cover the three main types of alopecia, as well as childrens hair loss. We will explore the different facets of the condition and the many support resources available.
