When alopecia areata is manifested in the form of bald patches, in many cases, hair grows back in few months. Expert dermatologists say that only 10% of the population affected by this particular condition never see hair regrowth. Here is a short and detailed list of people prone to permanent hair loss:
- People with family history of alopecia areata;
- People who have started experiencing hair loss at their young age (usually before puberty);
- People with another autoimmune disease;
- People with abnormal shape, colour and texture of their fingernails/toenails.
An important thing to mention is that alopecia areata is a special condition that cannot be cured, but it can be treated indeed.
