Hair loss condition

Alopecia totalis

Alopecia totalis is recognised by the loss of all scalp hair. Most sufferers are children and young adults (below 40 years old), though it can affect people of all ages. It can also affect the sufferer’s nails, giving them a pitted, ridged or brittle appearance. The exact cause is still unknown, although current theories include an autoimmune disease, stress or suggest a genetic basis.

There is currently no cure for Alopecia Totalis. Most people with this severe form of alopecia find the available treatments do not work and opt to wear a wig. Hair loss can cause emotional issues, and many people who experience it feel they are losing a part of their identity.
