What is children hair loss?

There are many differences between children and adults in terms of physiological, anatomical, cognitive, social and emotional, which impacted the causes of hair loss.

Hair loss caused by genetics does not affect children as it will not show until a later age. Nonetheless, children could experience hair loss concerns resulting from diet, stress and hair care similarly with adults.

Alopecia areata can occur at any age but most cases first develop in children and teenagers. Alopecia areata is a disorder that causes sudden hair loss on the scalp that could be caused by stress. It is not a permanent hair loss, but can be psychologically damaging, especially for children to cope with baldness. With alopecia areata, the body's immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss.

Improper maintenances from protecting against frizz and static cling, traction hair loss causes from tight ponytail or massive pulling could all be a factor to children hair loss. The epidermis in children is thinner and under-keratinized too, compared with adults. As a result, children are at risk for increased absorption of agents that can be absorbed through the skin. Thus, shampoo should be carefully selected as children respond more rapidly to chemical shampoos.

Trichotillomania is one of the common causes of childhood alopecia. It is a form of traction hair loss from their compulsion of pulling out one’s own hair unconsciously while they are studying or distracted in their leisure time.
