Hair Loss and Its Causes

The medical name for hair loss is alopecia (ah-luh-pee-shuh). When it occurs on the head, hair loss is generally referred to as baldness. Baldness or hair loss is typically something only adults need to worry about, but it can happen in children also. Hair loss is a part of your daily life, whether you realize it or not. But don’t worry, not all hair loss is permanent.
