What is Alopecia? Alopecia is an umbrella term for many types of hair loss. There are six different types: Androgenic alopecia, Telogen effluvium, Anagen effluvium, Alopecia areata, Alopecia totalis, and alopecia universalis, and Scarring alopecias. Losing your hair can cause low self-esteem which has been linked to anxiety and depression. If you think you may be suffering from hair loss please call your doctor or dermatologist and they can diagnose you properly.
