People lose their hair for many reasons. The most common reason is androgenetic alopecia, which is known by most people as male or female pattern hair loss. It is a condition that takes place over time with hair loss forming in the crown or temple area for men and in the front area of the scalp for women. Another major cause of hair loss is called effluvium, which is a condition where hair usually sheds more quickly. The most common form is telogen effluvium, which occurs during a point in the hair growth cycle when hair tends not to grow. Another type of effluvium called anagen effluvium occurs when hair is in its growth stage.

There are many types of hair loss that you may have heard of if you’re searching for a solution to thinning hair. Some of them are referred to by Greek or Latin names.  For example, androgenetic alopecia is simply a fancy way of saying, male or female pattern hair loss. That’s the most common type of hair loss, but what about the second most common type?  It’s called Telogen Effluvium, which finds its roots in the Latin word effluvium which means “flowing out.”  It’s used to describe the shedding of hair. Unlike androgenetic alopecia, which follows a pattern and tends to appear on the same places on the head, Telogen Effluvium is more unpredictable and appears in different places. RHRLI wants you to understand this type of hair loss so you can evaluate your treatment options.
