Alopecia Areata

An autoimmune condition that causes hair to fall out suddenly. The immune system attacks hair follicles, along with other healthy parts of the body. We can help when Alopecia becomes the inconvenience and not the focus, 

Androgenetic alopecia

Androgenetic alopecia is another term for male or female pattern baldness. It is a very common cause of hair loss.



Some women may experience excessive hair loss shortly after giving birth. This is due to a decrease in estrogen levels. This type of hair loss is a temporary condition and usually resolves within a year or sooner.

Telogen effluvium

A condition where the hair remains in the telogen (natural shedding) phase of the growth cycle. This causes more hair to fall out, sometimes in handfuls. Telogen effluvium is usually a temporary condition that resolves over time. Some possible causes include:

  • Severe stress
  • Surgery
  • Childbirth
  • Rapid weight Loss
  • Thyroid problems
  • Certain medications

Anagen effluvium

Causes large amounts of hair to fall out rapidly during the anagen (growth) phase of the hair cycle. Causes of anagen effluvium include: 

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation
  • Fungal Infections
  • Autoimmune disease

Traction alopecia

Is hair loss due to pulling hair into tight hairstyles, which causes it to break and come loose. Hairstyles associated with this condition include:

  • tight buns or ponytails
  • braids
  • cornrows
  • extensions


Certain medications have side effects that can cause hair to fall out.

Nutritional deficiencies

Nutritional deficiencies can cause hair to fall out. Extreme diets that are too low in protein and certain vitamins, such as iron, can sometimes cause excessive hair shedding.

 Birth control pills

People may experience hair loss while using birth control pills. Others might experience hair loss several weeks or months after they stop taking them.


Ringworm is a fungal infection that can cause hair loss. Ringworm on the scalp, or tinea capitis, can cause temporary bald areas on the head.
