Hair loss Classification

There are numerous ways to classify hair loss. One useful way has been to classify hair loss by whether the loss is localized (small area) and patchy or whether it affects large areas or the whole scalp (diffuse).Patchy hair loss:  Some conditions produce small areas of hair loss, while others affect large areas of the scalp. Common causes of patchy hair loss are:

Hair loss Classification

Alopecia areata  (Alopecia totalis; Alopecia universalis)


Male-pattern baldness--  Hair loss is a very common condition and affects most people at some time in their lives.  Androgenetic hair loss is seen in both men and women but is worse in men. The typical pattern of male baldness begins at the hairline. The hairline gradually recedes to form an "M" shape. The existing hair may become finer and shorter. The hair at the crown also begins to thin. Eventually the top of the hairline meets the thinned crown, leaving a horseshoe pattern of hair around the sides of the head.  Health issues like thyroid disease, anemia, and low vitamin levels may cause hair loss.

Female-pattern baldness-- Hair thinning is different from that of male pattern baldness. In female pattern baldness:Hair thins mainly on the top and crown of the scalp, meaning less likelihood of the crown and frontal hairline being lost.  It usually starts with a widening through the center hair part.The front hairline remains. The hair loss rarely progresses to total or near total baldness, as it may in men. Hair loss can occur in women for reasons other than female pattern baldness, including the following:   Breaking of hair (from treatments and twisting or pulling of hair, or hair shaft abnormalities that are present from birth). Certain skin diseases that lead to scarring of the hair follicles. Hormonal abnormalities,.Iron deficiency, chemotherapy.

Alopecia areata is a condition that causes round patches of hair loss. A common condition, alopecia areata usually starts as a single quarter-sized circle of perfectly smooth baldness. Sometimes, hair grows back in white. In another variant, alopecia can produce two or three bald patches . Roundish patches of hair loss on the head.   Smooth, hairless scalp in the affected areas. Alopecia can affect hair on other parts of the body, too -- for example, the beard or eyebrow. Forms of alopecia include: Androgenetic or Androgenic alopecia ("male-pattern baldness," "female-pattern baldness"). This type of alopecia is often attributed to genetic predisposition and family history. Doctors refer to common baldness as "androgenetic alopecia" or "androgenic alopecia," which implies that a combination of hormones and heredity (genetics) is needed to develop the condition. The exact cause of this pattern is unknown. (The male hormones involved are present in both men and women.)

Alopecia totalis --complete loss of scalp hair. It is the most extensive form, in which the entire scalp goes bald.
Alopecia universalis -- total loss of all body hair.

Traction alopecia-- This is a small or localized hair loss area caused by repetitive or persistent pulling or force on hair roots. Tight braids and ponytails can pull hard enough on hairs to make them fall out.

Trichotillomania--  This refers to the habit of someone voluntarily pulling at their own hairs or twisting them, sometimes without realizing it. The scalp and eyelashes are often affected. Unlike alopecia areata patches, which are perfectly smooth, hair patches in trichotillomania show broken-off hairs.

Tinea capitis--  Tinea is the medical word for fungal infection, and capitis means head. Tinea capitis is fungal infection of the scalp that for the most part affects school-age children. Bald spots usually show broken-off hairs.

Diffuse hair loss--  This is an overall hair thinning without specific bald spots or patterns. While this type of hair loss may not be noticeable to others, often the individual will feel their hair is not as thick or full as it previously was.

Traction alopecia- As the name implies, traction alopecia is alopecia secondary to physical traction. It is also a common cause of hair loss and has been traced to modern practices that include braiding and weaving, and the placement of hair extensions, and is seen both in children and adults.
Variant presentations exist with terminology that is optional for differentiating purposes. This includes alopecia linearis frontalis (ALF), more commonly known as marginal alopecia, and chignon alopecia, which is when a tight hair bun causes the traction changes.

Regarding alopecia areata, there is a scientific obscurity whether it is an autoimmune disease.
As far as if there is a hair follicle necrosis in androgenetic alopecia, there is also a scientific obscurity till today.
Nevertheless, the cosmetic lotion "MEXIS/M6S PATENT" is proved to treat the hair loss and baldness problem at any stage (the clinical tests of the University of Pavia have proved the treatment of baldness from stage A up to stage E. A table of the alopecia stages is following.
