Hair loss is a common condition that affects nearly 12 million French people.
Today, one third of men are estimated to suffer from alopecia as early as 30 years old, and half of them are affected by it by the age of 50.
As for women, even though they are less prone to hair loss, nearly 20% of them also experience it.
From a medical point of view, pathological hair loss is a capillary disorder that leads to hair thinning on the scalp.
Depending on the patient, the thinning may be sudden or progressive, localized or diffuse.
In all cases, it can be worsened by genetic, behavioral (smoking, haire treatments, hairdressing), medical (medication, surgery), and circumstantial factors (pregnancy, abortion, stopping the pill, emotional shock).
There are two main types of hair loss:
- hair loss without thinning such as telogen effluvium
- hair loss with balding such as androgenetic alopecia, scarring alopecia, peladic alopecia, traction alopecia, traumatic alopecia or alopecia after chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy
