About…Alopecia

How does it start?

Alopecia is autoimmune, and it happens when your immune system attacks your hair follicles, causing them to weaken and fall out.

The Three Alopecias

  • Patchy hair loss on the head, can be treated with Rogaine

Alopecia Totalis

  • The kind I have, hair loss on the head and face but not anywhere else on the body

Alopecia Universalis

  • What I used to have, hair loss everywhere on the body
