The Main Cause Of Alopecia

The Main Cause Of Alopecia

Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss. There are many types of hair loss with different symptoms and causes. Male pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, making about half of all men at age 50. It usually begins around the twenties or early thirties, and most men have some degree of hair loss in their late thirties. In addition to affecting men, it can sometimes affect women. During the baldness of the female pattern, the hair usually disappears on top of the head.

Alopecia Areata
Alopecia areata causes patches of baldness over the size of a large coin. They usually appear on the scalp but can occur anywhere on the body. It can occur at any age, but occurs especially in teenagers and young adults. Alopecia areata is caused by a problem with the immune system. It is more common in people with other autoimmune conditions, such as an overactive thyroid, diabetes or Down’s syndrome.

Scarring Alopecia
Scalp alopecia, also called cicatricial alopecia, is usually caused by complications of another condition. In this type of alopecia, the hair follicle is completely destroyed. This means that your hair does not grow back.

Anagen Effluvium
Anagen effluvium is widespread hair loss that can affect your scalp, face and body.
One of the most common causes of this type of hair loss is the chemotherapy of cancer treatment. In some cases, other cancer treatments can also cause hair loss.

Telogen Effluvium
Telogen effluvium is a common type of alopecia where there is much widespreadness of the hair, instead of specific bald patches. Your hair may become thinner, but it is unlikely that you will lose everything and your other body hair will usually not be affected.

Female Pattern Baldness

Female Pattern Baldness

Hair grows about 2-3 cm every couple of months. Each hair grows for 2 to 4 years, remains at that length for a brief period, then falls out. A new hair begins to grow in its place. In any one time, about 80% of the hair on your head is in the growing stage and 20% is in the resting stage.


Baldness happens when hair falls out but new hair does not grow in its place. The reasons of failure to grow new hair in female pattern baldness is not well understood, but it is connected with genetic tendency, aging, and levels of hormones (usually androgens, the male sex hormones).


Changes in the levels of androgens can influence hair production. For example, after the hormonal changes that begin during menopause, many women find that the hair on their head has become thinner while facial hair has become thicker.


Hair loss can occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, including the following:

  • Temporary shedding of hair that may happen after surgery, pregnancy or after a major illness.
  • Diseases like diabetes or lupus
  • Iron or vitamin deficiency
  • Patchy areas of total hair loss (alopecia areata– an immune disorder causing temporary hair loss)
  • After chemotherapy and from some other medications
  • Hormonal imbalance (excess testosterone or thyroid hormone imbalance)

Hair loss due to these reasons is usually reversible when it is identified and dealt with correctly. Do not waste your time with the harmful chemicals. Use totally natural Arganlife Hair Care Product !
