Alopecia is a common concern for both men and women. Receding hairline, pattern baldness, thinning, small round patches, sudden or temporary loss are all caused by alopecia.
Receding hairlines are most often caused by andro-genetic alopecia. Some people suffer from receding hairlines due to traction alopecia which is caused from tight elastics, hairstyles or braids that cause to much tension on the hair and damage the hair follicles.
Alopecia areata is the culprit of hairloss that presents itself in small round patches, that appear randomly throughout the scalp.
Sudden hairloss may be caused to stress, an illness, recent surgery, or after the delivery of a baby. If you experience sudden hairloss it is recommenced to consult with your doctor.
Other factors like poor nutrition, medicines, or diseases may contribute or be the cause of alopecia. Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder, in which healthy follicles are attacked by your own body. The reason is not know, although scientist believe genetics plays a major role. So go ahead blame your ancestors.
While there is no permanent solution for alopecia there are many ways to treat it. It is recommended that you use a natural hair routine that includes hair loss shampoo, such as Nioxin Hair Loss Therapy, or other thinning hair shampoos and conditioners. These shampoos will have the right balance in ph. Hair that is thinning or falling from the root may be caused by a plethora of hair and scalp issues.
There have been many cases of hair loss being caused by a candida overgrowth in your body. Candida is a yeast overgrowth caused by poor nutrition and other environmental factors.

There are many other factors such as a greasy diet and overall poor nutrition that can caused overactive sebaceous glands.
