Join us for our first annual Alopecia Awareness Event, titled, ‘We are not our hair!’
We’ll share with you,
What the medical term Alopecia is, It’s also termed, ‘hair loss.’
We’ll share with you what it is, how it begins and how we can help you care for it.
Alopecia is Hair loss from the scalp or elsewhere on the body.
The Most common types are:
Male or Female pattern baldness
Temporary or Permanent hair loss from the scalp, causing baldness.
Sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patches that may overlap..
A reversible condition in which hair falls out after a stressful experience.
An abnormal loss of hair during the first phase (anagen) of the hair’s growth cycle.
Traction alopecia is a form of alopecia, or gradual hair loss, caused primarily by pulling force being applied to the hair. This commonly results from the sufferer frequently wearing their hair in a particularly tight ponytail, pigtails, or braids.
You lose up to 100 hairs from your scalp every day. That’s normal, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men — and some women — lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, or poor nutrition.
Treatment for hair loss depends on the cause. In some cases, treating the underlying cause will correct the problem. Other treatments include medicines and hair restoration.(https://medlineplus.gov/hairloss.html)
