Female hair loss that happens in the temple area, borders, or sides of mind could result from a number of distinct disorders. Early detection is essential as scarring may occur with this condition. Once scarring occurs, baldness is permanent.

Frontaal Fibroserende Alopecia

Frontal fibrosing alopecia is a recently discovered condition. It was first described in 1994. Characteristics include symmetrical hair loss along the upper hairline as well as the sides of the scalp. Complete or partial eyebrow loss may also occur. This condition doesn’t happen suddenly. It’s a slow, slow process. The hairless area progressively recedes farther and farther back, forming a “ring” around the top and side borders which resembles a receding hairline. The baldness can extend up to five inches beyond the original hairline. There might be a slight or noticeable contrast in the appearance of skin in the affected region. It can appear pale or somewhat scarred.

The condition was originally called “postmenopausal frontal fibrosing alopecia” because it was initially thought to only affect women of postmenopausal age. Now it’s being seen in younger women also. Although it was once considered quite rare, it’s increasingly becoming more prevalent. The cause is unknown but there’s speculation that the immune hormonal or system system might be involved.

Because it’s a sort of cicatricial alopecia, scarring occurs under the surface. The scarring produces a closure within the affected follicle, which makes it impossible for this follicle to produce hair. Treatment revolves around stopping the development as opposed to attempting to re-grow the hair that has been lost. Early intervention is essential.

Alopecia Ophiasis

Ophiasis is een ernstiger en dramatischer versie van alopecia areata. Er treedt een patroon van haarverlies op bij de slapen, achter de oren, langs de zijkanten, en doorlopend tot in de nek (of het hele occipitale gebied). De kale plekken ontstaan vaak eerst aan één kant of op één plek, en sluiten dan langzaam op elkaar aan om een ring te vormen rond de omtrek van de hoofdhuid aan de zijkanten en over de nekbasis. Ophiasis is een Grieks woord dat slang betekent, verwijzend naar het slangachtige patroon dat zich vormt als deze toestand zich ontwikkelt.

Bij alopecia areata in al zijn verschillende vormen zijn de follikels niet beschadigd of vernietigd, zodat er altijd een mogelijkheid is voor hergroei. De prognose voor ophiasis is niet zo gunstig als bij minder ernstige vormen van de aandoening, maar zolang de follikels nog in leven zijn, is de kans aanwezig. Vroeg ingrijpen geeft betere resultaten.


Because it is an autoimmune disease, good treatment would consist of calming, nourishing and balancing (although not over-stimulating) the immune system, in addition to treating the hair loss itself. Autoimmune disorders need specific anti-inflammatory diet which may also require removal of gluten and other potential food allergens. Natural or synthetic agents might be employed to encourage follicle stimulation and new development.

Traction is among the most frequent causes of temporal thinning in women and girls. This happens from wearing tightly pulled hairstyles consistently for extended intervals. The sustained tension on the scalp strains the follicle, causing the underlying strand to loosen from the follicle. Persistent tension may eventually damage the follicle.

Treatment entails wearing hair loose as far as possible and massaging region with essential oils, coconut oil or coconut to offer nourishment and flow to follicles.
