There are many kinds of hair loss, with the most common being:
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition affecting your skin. It causes hair shedding on both your scalp and other parts of your body. Hair typically falls out in circular patterns.
Central cicatricial alopecia is a common cause of hair loss in women of color. In this type of hair loss, hair sheds mainly in the crown area and then moves outward in a circle. Central cicatricial alopecia may be related to heredity, use of extensions or weaves, and the use of relaxers, hot oils, and other products.
Androgenetic alopecia occurs in both men and women. In men, it's called male pattern baldness and causes a receding hairline and steadily thinning hair until partial or total baldness occurs. In women, the hairline doesn't recede but the hair thins overall. This type of hair loss is connected to conditions like prostate enlargement and heart disease in men. In women, it's often connected to hormone imbalance.
Telogen effluvium is temporary hair loss that causes shedding all over your head. Usually, telogen effluvium starts after a stressful situation or difficult time in your life. Other related conditions can include menopause, poor diet, and pregnancy.
Traction alopecia can happen when you wear your hair tightly pulled back in a bun, braids, or ponytail for long periods. The constant stress on the hair follicles can cause accelerated hair loss or follicle damage.
