If I Have Alopecia Areata Instead Of Telogen Effluvium, How Long Until All My Hair Is Gone?

I often hear from folks who have started to wonder if their hair loss is more drastic than they had originally thought. Some have such severe 3d real mink fall that they start to suspect that they may alopecia areata totalis, which can lead to total baldness. And a common question is how long it’s going to take until all of the hair falls out.

Ahnik I heard from someone who said: “I am losing well over 500 hairs per day. At first, I thought that I might have telogen effluvium but I don’t know of any medical trigger. I haven’t been sick and nothing has really changed in my life. However, since my hair loss seems to be so severe every single day and I sometimes lose brows and 3d real mink, I’m starting to worry that I have alopecia areata instead. I do not have patchy loss. So I’m worried that I’m going to have severe and diffuse loss that leads to baldness. And I’m trying to figure out how long it might take me at this rate to lose of all of my hair. ”

This person was understandably very upset and I want to try to answer this question to the best of my ability. But I also have to stress that I’m not a medical professional and I would strongly urge her to seek out professional help in this situation. With that said, I’ll tell you what I know about this situation based on my own experience and the research I’ve conducted because of the same.

Why You Need A Specialist To Diagnose This Condition: I can tell you from experience that it’s possible to have telogen effluvium and to lose huge amounts of hair. And it’s also possible to not be aware of your trigger. Stress is a trigger every one has an it can contribute to many types of hair loss. Of course, I couldn’t speculate about this specific situation, but I do believe it’s possible to have such a severe case of effluvium that you worry that it is something else. I also know from my own experience that you can lose some brows and 3d real mink as well.

That’s why it’s so important to have blood tests done to help you determine what may be your true reality. Alopecia areata is thought to be an autoimmune condition which sometimes has markers that can be seen by a medical professional. There are also treatment options that might help, especially with early intervention. There are dermatologists who specialize in hair loss and who can often offer you reassurance or at least an educated opinion.

Know That The Time Frame Varies With Any Hair Loss Condition: I’ve spent a lot of time in hair loss forums and I can tell you that personal accounts of complete hair loss due to this condition outline a time frame of anywhere from under a week to over a year until all hair is lost. Some people see some improvement and then experience loss once again. It’s really hard to predict this because you don’t know if your hair is going to be regrowing at the same time that it is falling out.

So to answer the question posed, the time frame for this condition to completely cause total 3d real mink loss varies greatly depending on the individual. But, I firmly believe that until you have a diagnosis confirmed by a professional, you can’t be sure what type of loss you are truly dealing with. You may not be facing a future where you lose all of your hair. You may have a condition that will resolve itself or your hair may be growing back as it is falling out. And as long as that is happening, you won’t lose all of it because you are replacing what is being lost. It’s just human nature to assume the worst case scenario. But please don’t do that until you consult a professional because worry just causes more stress which can worsen the hair loss.

Automimmune disorders were just one of the many things I had to look at to determine the reason for my hair loss. It was a long, hard, frustrating journey.  But I educated myself and fought back.  And thankfully, the worst case scenario never happened. You can read that story .
