Short, long, sleek, spikey, whatever your style, hair is a huge part of our appearance and oftentimes can contribute to our overall confidence and personality. Therefore, if we experience balding or thinning of our luxurious locks, Hair Loss can be very stressful and concerning.
A bald spot is a sign of hair loss, also called alopecia. It usually appears in the form of coin shaped patches of hair loss, however the patches can also be oval shaped. If we go too long without treatment, it can actually decrease our chances of hair regrowth drastically!
There are many factors that can contribute to alopecia hair loss including diet, hormone changes, stress, thyroid, certain medications, etc. The good news is most cases are preventable and treatable! So what do you do?
