hair loss reversedHair loss also called baldness is commonly known as alopecia.

This is whereby hair loss occurs in patches anywhere on the body usually from the scalp. The two extremes of alopecia areata are:

  • Alopecia Totalis – this is total hair loss on the scalp.
  • Alopecia Universalis – this is total hair loss on the body.
