The month of September has been observed for “Alopecia Awareness”, and I wanted to share a few tips with you on the root causes of Alopecia.

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is a Latin word that means “hair loss”.  It’s the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows. This can occur on your scalp or body.

Who does it affect?

Alopecia can affect both men and women. There are many forms of Alopecia; some may leave permanent hair loss, while others are only temporary.

The causes of alopecia can be genetic, inflammation, and nutritional deficiencies to name a few.

How do you treat Alopecia?

Treatment is based on the underlying cause(s). I advise you to seek professional help (a trichologist) if you suspect you may have alopecia or any other hair loss.

Hair loss of any kind can be devastating to men and women alike- affecting their social and work life. The Physiological affects of hair loss can be a detriment to ones self esteem as well as a host of other things. I have attached a link for your viewing please feel free to share.
