Forms of thinning hair

There are two forms of hair loss that are most likely to cause your hair to thin. These are androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata. Androgenetic alopecia is hair loss that often appears in generation long-families. Their family members often suffer from it as well and in males the hair thinning tends to occur from the hairline to the back of the head. In females, it tends to affect the crown of the head.

The other form alopecia areata, you can recognize because of the round patches on the scalp. Furthermore, it can also affect the eyebrows, beard and other areas where hair is present. Genes and environmental factors are often the main causes. With alopecia areata the hair follicles are still alive, and the hair can regrow. But often the patches on the scalp start small, but can develop itself to a lot of big patches. They can occur on the temples, but also on the crown of the head.

Causes for hair loss

Losing hair on the temples, which are the side regions of the head is often quickly noticeable. Thinning in this region in women is something that appears frequently, whereas men encounter a recession of their hairline from their face.
