Alopecia is a disorder triggered by a persons autoimmune system that causes either a woman or a mans hair to come out.
The hair comes out in patches and clumps in different sizes anywhere around the head. Depending on which type of Alopecia a person has will depend the the severity of the hair loss. Some people lose their hair only in a few spots. On occasion the hair grows back but can falls out again.
There are a range of different types of this condition which include,
- Alopecia areata universalis essentially you loss hair over entire body which includes eyebrows.
- Alopecia areata totalis generally means hair loss just on your crown and head area
- Diffuse alopecia areata is less extreme as most people experience thinning hair other than bald patches.
