Common signs of hair loss
Causes of hair loss
Hereditary hair loss – also known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is an inherited condition, which reduces the time the hair spends actively growing. AGA causes the hair follicles to become smaller and slowly, thinner hair replaces your hair. In male pattern hair loss, the most prominent hair loss is the receding hair line and thinning of the crown.
Alopecia areata / Auto immune disorder
A type of non-hereditary hair loss is alopecia areata, an auto immune disorder that causes defined patches or complete hair loss that may happen rapidly. If you experience this type of hair loss, consult your doctor for treatment.
Stress, diet & hormone imbalance
Temporary hair loss, known as telogen effluvium, happens when stress, diet, a hormonal imbalance or a traumatic event causes hair follicles to remain in the resting stage. If you experience this type of hair loss, consult your doctor for treatment.
