Usually, the first cycle of hair regrowth with alopecia areata is gray and very thin but the next cycles make it thicker and healthier. 

It has been found that alopecia initially targets pigmented hair and then non-pigmented.

It can be caused by a diverse group of rare disorders that destroy the hair follicle, replace it with scar tissue, and cause permanent hair loss.
