Alopecia: the symptoms

The symptoms of alopecia in men

The main symptom of alopecia in humans is a loss of hair that affects the crown or temples, whose characteristic appearance is often recognizable by the formation of gulfs (entrances) and / or tonsure (hole on the top of the skull).

More rarely we have a diffuse hair loss (distributed on the top of the skull) as in women.

Androgenetic alopecia is the consequence of an acceleration of the capillary cycle which leads to a weakening of the hair which becomes thinner and leads to a loss of capillary volume which leads, in the long term, to a hair loss more or less consistent.

In men, the symptoms of alopecia begin to manifest themselves around 40 years of age. Sometimes they can start earlier, right after puberty, and become severe over time.

Doctors classify the importance of alopecia (according to its symptoms), in different stages.

Symptoms of alopecia in women

In women, the symptoms of androgenetic alopecia are slightly different:

The disease usually starts later than in humans, with a loss of hair volume that becomes more and more fine.

Hair loss is often spread over the top of the skull in a more diffuse way, and can not be recognized at first glance. Most of the time, when you realize it, half of the hair has already disappeared.
