One of the biggest problems faced by people is hair loss. To enlighten you more on this topic we have shared the top forms of hair loss in this article.

  • Androgenetic Alopecia

This is also known as male-pattern baldness and women also experience this problem. The problem is triggered because of a change in male hormones. 

At times, it is difficult to prevent the problem of hair loss but the treatment option of hair transplant is the best option. This is the reason, the demand for Hair Transplant in Visakhapatnam at our clinic is increasing.

In this condition, the hair starts losing in small patches. The reason for this problem is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system starts attacking the body instead of protecting it. Usually, there is no specific treatment for this condition. In some cases, the hair starts growing back again or after some time it might even fall again.

  • Alopecia Totalis

This is also an autoimmune condition but in this, the problem can make you lose all the hair from the scalp. The exact reason for this problem is still not known but it might be because of stress. In this case, the use of immunomodulatory agents is recommended to the patients. These are herbs and green vegetables which contain Vitamin C, B6, B2, and A.

  • Traction Alopecia

This problem is more common in African American women. The problem is caused when you pull the hair with a lot of force to make hairstyles like tight ponytails or do different braids. This can put a lot of pressure on the hair which is referred to as chronic pulling. You should change the hairstyle and wear the hair loose so that hair follicles do not get damaged.

  • Cicatricial Alopecia

This condition affects both men and women & it is a non-hereditary condition. This results in permanent hair loss which can even lead to scarring. Around 35 people suffer from this hair loss type.
