What Increases Your Risk
Factors that increase the risk of hair loss include:
Although most people with hair loss caused by alopecia areata regrow their hair, certain people are at greater risk for their hair not growing back. If you have a family history of the condition, have the condition at a young age, have an autoimmune disease, are prone to allergies (atopy), have extensive hair loss, or have abnormal color, shape, texture, or thickness of the fingernails or toenails, you are more likely to have permanent hair loss.
