Alopecia areata
AA is a condition where hair loss happens in one area. This is also called spot baldness. In very few cases, all hair on the scalp can be lost. This disease is called Alopecia areata totalis.

Traction alopecia
TA is a form of Alopecia that is caused by excessive force on the hair. It is commonly found in men and women who wear ponytails, braids, weaves, etc. So be careful not to do tight ponies and braids.

Androgenic alopecia
This is a condition characterized by hair loss related to hormones called andrones (mostly DHT). It's common in both men and women, but usually men. This is also called male pattern baldness.

Treatments that can help stop or reverse hair loss caused by these forms of Alopecia include: Minoxidil, Topical Caffeine, Miconazole/Ketoconazole (Interesting, huh?), or hair transplants.
