What is Baldness?
The word ‘baldness’ refers to the inability of an area to grow hair. A bald area may have a very small number of hairs but it does not have the hair density that the scalp normally has.
By hair density, we mean the number of hairs that grow within one secure centimeter. People with different ethnicities may have different hair density and hair type.
For most of us, baldness is just the absence of hair on a small or large part of the body but hair growth professionals can differentiate among different types of baldness.
Based on the way it occurs, experts divide baldness into different types. Here are some important types of baldness that are common:
- Androgenic Alopecia: It is known as androgenic alopecia because it occurs due to the effects of androgen on the hair follicles. The person with this type starts losing hair from the temples area.
- Involution Alopecia: This type of baldness occurs naturally in men. In this condition, hair becomes thin with the passage of time due to resting phase of hair follicles.
- Alopecia Areata: This type of baldness is quite common and it is also known as spot baldness. An autoimmune disease can cause this problem. There is no perfect solution for it but experts use different techniques to stop the progress.
- Alopecia Universalism: This type of baldness is also caused by autoimmune diseases. Alopecia Universalism affects hair on all areas of the scalp, face, and body. Mean to say, eyebrows and eyelashes may also fall out when this issue occurs.
- Trichotillomania: It is an impulse control disorder where a person feels the urge to pull hair from the scalp or another area of the face or body. This bad habit can result in minor to major hair thinning and/or baldness.
- Telogen Effluvium: Like Alopecia Areata, this type is also very common around the world. It mostly occurs to the scalp hair and it may target specific areas of the scalp (e.g. top of the head). It may not cause all scalp hair to fall but it can cause hair thinning or baldness in some areas.
It all starts with abnormal hair loss and thin areas develop after some time. Hair thinning further leads to baldness which is characterized as not having any hair on an area of the scalp.
Let’s have a look at some common causes of baldness:
- Family history
- Certain hairstyles.
- Medical conditions
- Hormonal changes
- A stressful life event.
- Medications and supplements.
- Radiation therapy to the head.
