Here is what you need to know about Alopecia Hair Loss in Alabama.

Hormones are the most likely common cause of hair loss for both women and men. Here at Hair by Kim Laslo, we specialize in helping Women with Androgenetic Alopecia and Hormonal Related Hair Loss. 

 

Hormonal Hair Loss and Androgenetic Alopecia will cause Hair Loss through genes and your hormones. 

In both women and men, the specific hormone responsible for Hormonal Hair Loss is the same, it's called dihydrotestosterone, which is also known as DHT.

 

Dihydrotestosterone is a hormone that your body produces as a byproduct of testosterone. Both women and men need testosterone. A loss of Estrogen can also play a role in Hormonal Hair Loss as women progress through menopause.

What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia Areata occurs when your immune system attacks your hair follicles. It may even be brought on by severe stress you are experiencing. You can expect sudden hair loss that starts with one or more circular bald patches.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes your hair to fall out, quite often it comes out in clumps the size and shape of a quarter at times. The amount of hair loss is different in everyone, men or women. Alopecia Areata can be scarring or non-scarring. Scarring Alopecia is when the hair does not grow back and is permanently lost due to an attack on the follicle. Non-Scarring Alopecia is characterized by a cycle of loss and regrowth in certain areas.

Some people lose their hair only in a few spots. Others lose a lot, even all of their hair. Sometimes, hair grows back but unfortunately falls out again later. In others, hair grows back for good.

Types of Alopecia.

  • Alopecia Areata is more common than other, more rare types:

  • Alopecia Totalis means you’ve lost all the hair on your head.

  • Alopecia Universalis is the loss of hair over your entire body.

  • Diffuse Alopecia is a sudden thinning of your hair rather than lost patches.

  • Ophiasis Alopecia causes hair loss in a band shape around the sides and back of your head.

  •  

Sadly, there is no known cure for Alopecia Areata, or the rare types of Alopecia, but there are treatments that you can try that might be able to slow down future hair loss or help hair grow back more quickly.
