Hair loss

Alopecia (hair loss) may occur after major surgery, after delivery, or due to other physical or psychological stress. It can also be attributed to underlying diseases that cause hormonal imbalance or to the use of certain drugs.

Some hair loss cases are part of the natural growth cycle – growth, rest, fall and regrowth. Hair loss can be temporary or permanent, depending on the cause.

The causes of hair loss

Non-scarring alopecia is more common and includes mostly three conditions: androgenetic alopecia, alopecia areata and telogen effluvium.

Androgenetic alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia results in the appearance, on the top of the head, of thinner and often less pigmented hair, which becomes lighter. This baldness can affect the top of the head uniformly, or start by affecting the tip of the head or the temples.

Androgenetic alopecia results from two factors: a genetic predisposition and sensitivity to androgens.

Alopecia areata or "alopecia"

It is important to note that alopecia is not contagious, but rather an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss. This hair loss is usually localised. This type of alopecia can be isolated over time and resolve itself. However, the disease can also progress.  It then becomes important to treat the problem. 

Telogen effluvium

Telogen effluvium consists of post-stress hair loss and is signaled by a thinning impression of the hair that is accompanied by a large quantity of hair found on clothes, on the floor, in the shower or on the hairbrush. 

Telogen effluvium can have many causes. Hair loss occurs 2 to 3 months after a triggering factor such as a serious infection, a high fever, childbirth, an accident or even a psycho-affective shock. However, it is crucial to remember that this type of alopecia is generally temporary and reversible.
