Will My Hair Ever Grow Back?

There is every chance that your hair will regrow, but it may also fall out again. No one can predict when it might regrow or fall out. The course of the disease varies from person to person. Some people lose just a few patches of hair, then the hair regrows, and the condition never recurs. Other people continue to lose and regrow hair for many years. A few lose all the hair on their head; some lose all the hair on their head, face, and body. Even in those who lose all their hair, the possibility for full regrowth remains. In some, the initial hair regrowth is white, with a gradual return of the original hair color. In most, the regrown hair is ultimately the same color and texture as the original hair.

Some studies suggest that the percent of patients who develop extensive disease (alopecia areata to either totalis or universalis) is anywhere from 16.7% to 19%. Recurrences are possible even after a 20 year remission. However, the prognosis is worse for those that have experienced loss of hair for over a year.

    There is every possibility of regrowth of hair if you can follow the guidance of your doctor, I suppose.
