Causes

Alopecia universalis may occur at any age in both men & women. It is believed to be an autoimmune disorder, wherein the white blood cells attack the fast-growing cells in the hair follicles responsible for making hair. These affected cells become smaller & dramatically slow down hair production. Fortunately, the follicles will still receive new cells, so the potential for re-growth is there.
