What are the different types of hair loss?

Our experts answer your most frequently asked questions.

Hair loss can be occasional or chronic:

  • Occasional hair loss less than 6 months - also known as diffuse or isolated hair loss

Stress, climate changes, hormonal disruption, dietary regimens, pollution, etc. are all possible factors that could affect the hair. Hair becomes weakened, devitalized and noticeably falls out. Even though this is a transitory occurrence, it's better to react quickly at the first signs.

  • Chronic hair loss more than 6 months also known as regular hair loss

The hair follicles' activity determines hair growth. In chronic hair loss, each cycle is shorter than the previous one. After around 25 cycles, the hair follicles are worn out. They resorb and then disappear, sometimes years in advance.
The cause for this type of hair loss is mainly genetic. It is important to adapt the treatment to stop the phenomenon and strengthen the hair. Certain diseases can also cause chronic hair loss.
