    There are different causes of hair loss. Medications that you are using with your illnesses Folexin can cause hair loss but as soon as the illness is treated, hair with grow back again. Using chemicals in your hair such as bleaching and hair dye can cause hair loss, so it is best to stop using chemicals that can damage your hair. There is also another cause of hair loss which is called alopecia, this is hereditary thinning of hair and it usually happens to women. Up to 2% of the population will experience a type of hair loss called alopecia areata at some point in their lives. Two forms of this type of hair loss exist that effect less than 50% of the scalp for some and more than 50% on others. Alopecia areata is generally known as an autoimmune disease in which the body treats hair follicles as foreign tissue and therefore stops the growth of hair. The condition is revealed by patches of bald spots where hair existed before. People who develop this type of baldness are generally known to be in good health. Some scientists believe that those effected are predisposed genetically to develop it and that a virus or something of the like sets off the condition to become active where it may have been dormant. With alopecia areata, hair generally grows back, but hair loss and regrowth may happen a few times. Roughly 50% to 80% of those with the condition regrow hair within one year with no treatment - usually when the body is working toward stopping some other condition. Given the cause of the disease is generally unknown there have been several studies on the cause and treatment of the condition conducted such as one by and between NAAF and Dr. Lloyd E. King of Vanderbilt University. Their efforts are to learn about the casual genes involved that might possibly explain the cause of the disease. At present, there is no absolute cure for the disease. There are treatments that have provided mild results for many by stimulating hair follicles and results are better for cases that are not severe.
