Types of Alopecia

What is Alopecia? Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair to fall out.  Approximately 6.8 million people in the United States have or will develop alopecia areata at some point in their lives.  Alopecia can affect men, women children and all races.  Even though there is currently no cure for alopecia areata, this type it can be managed with medications and treatments such as Rogaine and Propecia.  So, let’s take a look at what the most common types of alopecia are.

Different Types of Alopecia

  • Alopecia Areata: Causes patchy bald spots on the scalp or other parts of the body. This type can progress into alopecia totalis or universalis eventually.
  • Androgenic alopecia - This form typically begins as mild thinning at the top or front of the head that worsens as time goes on. Often referred to as Male pattern baldness although it can occur in women as well and is the most common type of hair loss.
  • Alopecia totalis –Is when all of the hair falls out in your scalp
  • Alopecia universalis- Is when there is complete balding on the scalp, face including the eyelashes and facial hair. This can include the entire body.

Hair loss Treatment

Some people might think hair loss is a small thing, but for those who experience it firsthand, it can be devastating. And with the simple fact that sometimes hair loss can come and go someone may try to hide their hair loss for years.

If you think you may be experiencing some form of alopecia, I first want to say you are so much more than just your hair.  Yes, our society put’s a lot of value on beauty and hair, but true beauty starts from within.  And if you happen to experience complete or partial hair loss, then alternative hair can be a great option. Contact me directly through and I’ll be happy to find something that makes you feel confident and beautiful.

Also, I recommend getting involved with an online community with others who are living life with alopecia.  So, stand tall, and know “You are Beautiful and hair does not define you.”
