There are many types of female alopecia.  Depending on its type, it is possible to determine the causes of this disease and choose the optimal treatment strategies. However, the following classification isn’t strict, as it covers only the most common types of female alopecia.

 1. Alopecia areata

This type of alopecia gets its name from the fact that the hair falls out in a particular area. That is, the areas without hair usually have a round or oval shape.

 2. Seborrheic alopecia

Of course, female alopecia can occur against the background of seborrhea. At the same time, the woman may have symptoms such as increased sebum secretion, scalp flaking, and severe dandruff. Hair often looks messy, there are dead hair ends.

 3. Androgenic alopecia

Androgenic alopecia is more common in men. The male alopecia pattern is usually hormonal. It’s less common in women and usually doesn’t result in complete hair loss.

 4. Congenital female alopecia

This type of alopecia, like congenital alopecia, is not very common in women. Basically, it’s inherited.

 5. Symptomatic alopecia

Symptomatic female alopecia is a complication of several serious diseases. As a rule, with the elimination of the cause, all alopecia symptoms disappear.

6. Cicatricial female alopecia

Cicatricial alopecia means that hair can’t grow as a result of scarring skin changes.  Such changes are usually caused by infections, injuries, or burns.

We kindly remind you that in any case of alopecia we recommend you consult the specialist!
