4. Can the Hair Grow Back?

Alopecia areata is not a permanent condition. If the inflammation of your hair follicles subsides, and they are not already destroyed, your hair can grow back. People who lose just a few patches randomly often experience a full recovery just as spontaneously as it left. In other cases, alopecia areata can either become more severe or fall into a continuous pattern of hair loss and growth. You may overcome alopecia areata within a year, but most people deal with multiple episodes.
