Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

If your front hairline is receding and/or the crown is thinning, you have genetic hair loss and should visit a hair loss specialist.

Hello I am a 22 year old female with hair loss problems due to nerves and I wanted to know what can I put on my hair or take to help it fill in?
Best to treat cause: First off, at least 2 of my siblings have suffered stress induced alopecia so I know how it can be related to nerves.
