Types of Hair Loss: Understanding the Different Causes and Treatment

Hair loss troubles

Hair loss can be a concerning issue for many of us. It's not just about losing hair; it's about losing a part of our identity and confidence. Understanding the different types of hair loss and their causes can empower you to make informed decisions about the best treatments available.

Common Types of Hair Loss

When it comes to hair loss, several common patterns and causes are observed. Let's delve into the specifics:

Androgenetic Alopecia (Male and Female Pattern Baldness)

Androgenetic Alopecia

Androgenetic Alopecia is the most prevalent form of hair loss among both men and women. For men, it often results in a receding hairline and thinning at the crown, giving rise to the classic "balding" look. In women, it's more likely to cause diffuse thinning across the entire scalp. This type of hair loss is primarily genetic but can also be influenced by hormonal changes.

Telogen Effluvium

Women's Hair Loss Troubles

Telogen Effluvium is often triggered by stress, illness, or major life events. It's characterized by the sudden shedding of hair, typically several months after the triggering event. The good news is that this type of hair loss is often temporary and can be reversed with the proper treatment.

Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune condition that results in hair loss in small, round patches. While the exact cause is still not fully understood, it's believed to be related to the immune system mistakenly attacking hair follicles. The good news is that hair often regrows on its own, but treatment options are available to expedite the process.

Traction Alopecia

Tight hairstyles

Traction Alopecia is caused by excessive pulling or tension on the hair, often due to tight hairstyles like braids, ponytails, or extensions. It's a common issue in Malaysia, where tight hairstyles are popular. Avoiding excessive tension and giving your hair breaks from these styles can help prevent this type of hair loss.
