Are you suffering/suffered with alopecia areata? How many months (days exactly) will it take to regrow my hair?
There is no way of knowing how many months or days exactly it takes to regrow your hair. It is important to know that alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition. It is a result of your immune system being messed up and attack the natural process of hair growth. There is nothing wrong with your hair. Much like rheumatoid arthritis being also one of over 100 known autoimmune diseases, there is no problem with the joints, but the problem is in the immune system mistakenly attacking the joints.
It is therefore irrelevant to think of alopecia areata as a hair problem. You’re better off focusing on fixing the root cause, which is the malfunctioning immune system. It is possible for the immune system, if left unfixed, to go on and start attacking other parts of the body down the road.
I’ve been helping my daughter with her recovery from autoimmune Alopecia Areata by working on building her immune system. True recovery from an immune related disorder like Alopecia comes from a healthy immune system that can effectively fight off infections, cancer and diseases. It also knows not to attack the hair and other tissues in the body (autoimmune).
Full recovery is possible if you give your body the right nutrients it needs. Those nutrients are phytochemicals, antioxidants, and polysaccharides from wholesome plant foods.
The first phase of my treatment started from finding out the cause of my baldness. Mainly there are two types of alopecia – scarring alopecia and non-scarring alopecia. In scarring alopecia, the primary tissues that are around and below the hair follicles get damaged, and the tissues die and can’t be regenerated. Therefore, hair regrowth is not possible in scarring Alopecia. On the other hand, in non-scarring alopecia, there is hair loss, but the hair follicles don’t die, and the possibility of hair regrowth is always present. Alopecia areata hair loss pattern is coin-shaped, and that is what I had.
After my detailed examination at RichFeel, I was asked to take a Capiloscopy and a Trichoanalysis test to understand the severity of my alopecia areata. After that, a prescription for amino acid supplements containing L-tyrosine was given to reduce auto-inflammation. Secondly, lifestyle changes such as extra physical activity and dietary changes also need to be addressed while dealing with alopecia areata. Since the scalp is very sensitive, the dermatologist avoids giving a lot of clinical therapies, but topical applications with a Trichoactive product can be given.
- ried Cortzon injection: it wasn’t successful as the area on my head was wide & thinned out and not single bold patches.
- i tried Minoxidil and Hair-again ointments but they didn’t do anything noticeable
- i started taking Methotrexate tablets on weekly bases in combination with Minoxidil and hair-again. I had to do regular blood test to monitor my blood count ( my dermatologist took a picture of my hair).
- After about 3–4 months on Methotrexate i didn’t notice much difference until my dermatologist took a second picture and showed me. I was speechless it was huge improvement. You wouldn’t notice i had Alopecia Areata at all. I continued taking it, stooped the ointment creams and did regular blood count as well. It works for me. I think you could talk to your Dermatologist about it and see if its suitable for you too

From what I have read, Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease with no cure. To me that means that the hair that has been lost will never grow back (however, talk to your doctor). You have a couple of options:
- Feel sorry for yourself for the rest of your life. This is the least desirable option of the three. I watched my mother, who had a major hair loss issue, feel sorry for herself. All it did was cause her to be unhappy. She first got diagnosed with it before I was born, and felt sorry for herself until she died (I was around 55). That’s a long time to be unhappy.
- If you’re a guy, embrace your patchy baldness and shave your head completely. I did, and it made me look 10 years younger! Upkrrp means you have to shave the top of your head maybe 2ce a week.
- Wear a toupee or wig. This will hide the hair loss. Make sure the wig is made with human hair and fits just right (a cheap one will not do). You might invest in a number of them, with different styles and/or colors.
I strongly disagree with the answer someone else gave to this question. Alopecia Areata is NOT just a cosmetic disease!!!!!!! It is an auto-immune disease and we don’t yet know the full ramification of living with this disease your whole life.
Alopecia is a genetic disease and it is permanent. It can go into remission for long periods or short periods of time. It usually starts in childhood. It lasts throughout the lifetime.
Alopecia areata can be mild, as in small circular patches of baldness, or severe, which is called Alopecia Universalis. And it can be anything in between these.
Our population is trying hard right now to pass laws that treat it as a disease that needs treatment and not just a “cosmetic problem”. That attitude has prevented the government and medicine from finding drugs that target the part of the immune system that cause Alopecia. There has been much research and they are close to finding very specific treatments. There is not enough money to get this done. Like many less common diseases, they don’t get the dollars.
Treatments, such as the ones I am on, are expensive and important parts are not covered by insurance. It is more than cosmetic for a woman to be bald in our world. To have no eyebrows or eyelashes definitely makes people stare. And it affects the person who has it by greatly reducing self esteem.
Worse is that it usually starts in childhood. Little girls are made fun of, stared at and it affects their social development to look so different from everyone else. And we need to find a cure for this, and so many other auto-immune diseases that are so prevalent.
It depends on what’s going on inside your own immune system and how you’re supporting it through diet and nutrition.
You can support your immune system in ‘doing its job’ so that it recognises your hair as part of our body, not as invaders that it needs to attack, by helping support its natural immune modulation abilities. Immune modulation is made up of two main components: (1) immuno-stimulators and (2) immuno-supppressors.
Immuno stimulators are what we need when our body senses threats from infectious agents, or cancer cells developing. Our immune cells launch their weapons to fight off these threats, a process known as acute inflammation (good inflammation). And immuno suppressors must then recognise when the fight is over and stop the fight. Problems occur when they don’t stop the fight when the fight is over, sending our body into a chronic inflammation state.
Now, immuno modulation is a process that regulates these two components, so that our body is able to effectively turn on and off inflammation as it needs to.
Certain plants have been studied to posses potential bioactive compounds that are capable of immuno-modulation. Polysaccharides from certain plants have prompted researchers to study their physical properties and potential use.
Mushrooms are distinguished as an important food containing immuno-modulating compounds. These compounds belong mostly to polysaccharides, especially β-Glucans (beta-glucans).
