What is Alopecia?
Alopecia Areata - This autoimmune disorder causes hair loss in small, round patches on the scalp or other parts of the body. It can range from mild to severe and may be temporary or long-lasting.
Alopecia Totalis - In this form, all the hair on the scalp is lost, which can be particularly challenging for individuals as it can lead to complete baldness.
Alopecia Universalis - This is the most severe type, resulting in the loss of all body hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes.
Androgenetic Alopecia - Also known as male or female pattern baldness, this type is more common and is often related to genetic factors and hormonal changes.
