Types of alopecia and useful recommendations

Alopecia is a type of hair loss in patches. But not all alopecia are the same ...

Research has identified three types of triggers, genetic, immunological and psychological stress or traumatic events.

We can distinguish:

Alopecia areata: Identify causes of hair loss in severely limited and uneven. The cause, in most cases, is psychological. Often, the causes of the fall are the psychological and if untreated can lead to total baldness.

Androgenetic Alopecia: The birth of genetic and hormonal factors, is the most difficult to eliminate. Unlike previous starts very slowly, the hair weak and difficult to comb and then begin to fall. The hair bulb atrophies completely and thus the hair loss and is not replaced by new hairs.

Scarring alopecia: This is caused by the destruction of the hair bulb, in connection with the atrophy of the follicles in the vicinity. The causes can be attributed to disease, trauma and genetic predisposition. This type of alopecia causes irreversible progress.

The most recommended is (obviously with a prescription): Minoxidil 5%, valid for the regrowth of hair, if hair follicles are still active and equally effective when added to retinoic acid, a compound of vitamin A; finasteride that blocks Hair fall bulbs.
