Types of Hair Loss

Everyone Who is Suffering From Pattern Baldness will fall somewhere on these hair loss charts. The good news is now you know the extent of the problem. The bad news is that you do not do something now to stop it, then most likely it will continue to progress up the chart until the results are much worse. So the Solution is to take action and do something.

Below are the Most Common Types of Hair Loss

Alopecia – Alopecia is a blanket term for hair loss of any kind. There are many types and causes of hair loss (alopecia), most of which can be effectively treated. Hair loss may be genetically inherited, or it may be caused by a variety of other factors including protein or other dietary deficiency, hormonal imbalance, and stress. Hair loss can also be the first sign of an otherwise undiagnosed or undetected underlying illness.

Scarring Alopecia
This can occur after infectious scalp disorders or, more rarely, they are auto-immune conditions. (When the body attacks the hair follicle as it would invading bacteria)

Androgentic Alopecia (Male Pattern Baldness)
The main type of hair loss for which there is no effective treatment is genetically inherited hair loss (known as Male Pattern Baldness or Androgentic Alopecia). It is important to note, however, that this condition can and does affect females too, particularly after menopause even though it is called Male Pattern Baldness, it is gene-linked, not sex-linked.

In women, it is likely to lead to diffuse hair loss; that’s a general thinning of the hair density rather than to obvious bald patches. Although there is no cure for this condition, hair loss can be limited or slowed down in some cases and treatments are likely to be more effective on women than on men. The important thing to understand is that the best that can be said of treatments for genetically inherited hair loss is that they can be effective to some degree on some people some of the time. Hair loss can cause great distress, and there are many misunderstandings about its causes and treatment. This is a problem that requires sympathetic handling, and a qualified Trichologist has to understand the patient’s anxiety and help him come to terms with the loss of hair.

Other Types of Alopecia
Other types of alopecia that you may have heard of include Alopecia Areata , Alopecia Totalis, Alopecia Universalis and Traction Alopecia (there are others as well). These are all entirely distinct from Androgentic Alopecia (above) and have a much better chance of responding to professional diagnosis and treatment.

Other Types of Hair Loss
There are many other types of hair loss which can and do respond to treatment and advice without medical assistance. There are also some types of hair loss which can have a natural or spontaneous recovery. Excessive hair loss can often be a symptom of some other problem or a variation in the metabolism of the body and for this reason, co-operation between the patient’s doctor and the Trichologist is often necessary.

There is no actual cure for hair loss, but with recent technology and research into stem cell technology, a cure for baldness is closer than before.

Scalp Problems
These can range from dandruff to more inflammatory conditions, such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema which are scalp problems that occupy much of a Trichologist’s time. As with the hair, these problems can be symptomatic of some other metabolic variations. Stress, poor diet, or even some allergies to certain foods, can be responsible for the build up and shedding of dead skin cells.

The management of hair and scalp that are excessively oily is another area in which the advice of a qualified trichologist is often sought. Here, guidance on the right type of shampoo for any particular individual, and on its frequency of use, might be particularly relevant.

Seborrheoic Eczema
An inherited, itchy, inflammatory, scaling scalp condition which can cause much discomfort and embarrassment. The condition is treatable with much success but is not fully curable.
Anti-yeast cream or anti-dandruff shampoo has been proven to help the problem.

Hair Pulling
This is often stress-related. People become compulsive about pulling their hair out and it can be a very difficult habit to break. It is difficult to treat as people have to be taught how to break the habit. It can take a few months and treatment can work, if people set realistic goals and can stick to them.

Hair Texture Problems
Problems with hair texture can be caused by over exposure to heat or strong chemicals or by many of the other stresses and strains to which we subject our hair. With the advent of hair straighteners, more and more women are having problems with breakage and poor hair conditions.

Treatment can include cutting back on straighteners and other damaging hair products as well as using protective serum or even getting a good hair cut.
