Alopecia is an umbrella term for hair loss. There are many types of Alopecia including some of the most common listed below:
Androgenetic alopecia is also known as male or female pattern hair loss. It can be attributed to genetics and a family history of hair loss.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition marked by small circular bald patches which can show up on various parts of the body.
Traction alopecia is caused by putting constant stress on the hair through repeated pulling or stretching. Tight braiding or ponytails may cause this condition.
