My Son Lost all his hair at 2 1/2 years old. Now he is 12.

Up until November 2013, he had little to no hair. That all changed a month later. In December 2013, His hair has started to grow back. He has regained about a 1/3rd of the hair back, with lots of new ones coming in.

Would anyone know what triggers a regrowth? I would like to help him grow even more hair back. Its a very confusing condition.

He is not taking any medication, so that is not a factor.

I lost all of my hair when I was that age as well. Around eighth grade (when I was 12) my body made a change by going through puberty. Ever since then my hair decided to grow and stay... up until about three months ago (I am now 23). Nobody really knows what triggers regrowth especially if you are not on any medication to treat the hair loss. That sure is great news though!

Its a guessing game for all but I think hormones increasing in puberty may help for awhile but I think when they level out he may get haieloss again. But I am not a Dr. I am just guessing. Best of luck for your son.

Our alopecia specialist at Cleveland Clinic said puberty can be a trigger for loss or regrowth.  Unfortunately for my daughter it appears to be a trigger for loss.  Good luck to your son.
