Remedies, treatments and care for Hair Loss
Alopecia areata causes clumps of hair to fall out, resulting in totally smooth, round hairless patches on the scalp or other areas of the body. It is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, which is where hair growth begins. Hair loss caused by alopecia areata is usually temporary, which may grow back in a few months.
Baldness refers to a loss of hair from part of the head.
Hair loss can affect both men and women. While genes play a vital role, there are usually other reasons as well, including, hormonal imbalances, an under-active thyroid gland, nutritional deficiencies and insufficient blood circulation in the scalp.
