Generally, hair loss, also known as alopecia (‘lack of hair’), can be divided into two categories: temporary and permanent hair loss. Thin hair or hair loss may be the result of diseases such as androgenic alopecia or it may be caused by critical illness and the subsequent treatment.
As permanent hair loss is most common in men, and because a lot of the female identity often lies within the hair, it can be difficult to cope with losing one’s hair as a woman. In the case of female pattern baldness, the hair does not grow back; it is a permanent condition that the woman must learn to live with, and it may have large mental and cosmetic consequences for the individual woman.
Another form of temporary hair loss is caused by stress. If the body is exposed to mental or physical stress, it may cause sudden hair loss with large tufts of hair falling out. This type of hair loss is called patchy baldness or alopecia areata. Fortunately, patchy baldness caused by stress is also temporary. Once the balance of the body has been restored, and it is free from the stress that caused the hair loss, most people will get their normal hair back.
