Signs and symptoms
There are different signs and symptoms of hair loss; some may appear as gradual thinning, bald patches, or complete baldness. The different types of hair loss include the following:
- Alopecia areata: This disease is known to cause complete hair loss even in healthy people. Hair loss happens all through the body; some people may even lose hair on their eyelashes. The sign of this type of hair loss is that the hairs on the head fall out in round patches.
- Hereditary hair loss: hereditary hair loss causes thinning or bald patches that start from the centre of the scalp.
- Traction alopecia: This is caused by hairstyles that constantly pull on the scalp.
- Trichotillomania: This is a psychological condition that causes people to pull on their hair until it comes out.
