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.
