Before we talk about cures for alopecia, let's discuss first about alopecia causes. Alopecia hair loss may be a side effect from medications that you may be taking. Alopecia may run in your family history and be hereditary. Alopecia may even be from tight hairstyles pulling your hair often. I will briefly go over the different types of alopecia hair loss for you.
Here is a list of the different types of Alopecia areata.
Alopecia is the technical term for abnormal hair loss. When the hair falls out naturally is not the same as alopecia hair loss. Normally in the hair growth cycle hair will replace the hair that has naturally shed when falling out. The hair tends to shed most often during the spring and autumn months of the year. Alopecia hair loss is not replaced with new hair unless special scalp treatments are given to the person to encourage new hair growth in the scalp.
The two lesser severe types of Alopecia Areata for women is called:
Alopecia areata can occour at any age and can happen to any race of people. 80 percent of patients have only 1 bald spot that can have any given shape such as round or oval shaped.
Please check with your family physician for a proper diagnosis.
Traction alopecia is caused by tight hairstyles such as:
Another reason to stop wearing tight hairstyles and tight head gear is to stop and avoid related headaches. Tight hairstyles and hats may cause headaches too!
Simply loosen your hair styles and get larger head gear to properly fit your head in order to avoid and to stop traction alopecia and possible headaches.
Also changing the position of your hairstyles often really seems to help, even if it is only changing the position of a simple pony tail, this can make all of the difference in the world too.
Traction alopecia may not be reversible if there is continued use of tight hairstyles, tight head gear and hair extension use.
I find that wearing your hair down is a beautiful option that will definitely avoid traction alopecia altogether.
