Alopecia Barbae: Symptoms, causes and Treatments


Brothers, lets tackle this Alopecia barbae real quick.

Alopecia, or to be less fancy hair loss, is a condition that at least half the population over the age of 30 or 40 is known to have. This hair loss is commonly attributed to stress, however,  there is more to it and many more factors than most people think. ( so don’t stress over that)

There are  two classes of alopecia alopecia:

  • Androgenetica

  • Alopecia areata.

Androgenetica the more common of the two can be male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness.

Alopecia areata is loss of hair in form of circular patches.  The small patch of hair loss in the beard area is called alopecia barbae. These freaky little patches can range in amount and size and leave behind a nice smooth skin surface, ( It’s not really nice, just sounded better that way.)  Although the cause of alopecia barbae is still inconclusive, studies indicate it may be the result of an autoimmune problem.  So ( “BasikAli”) what that means is your immune system goes mental and believes your beard follicles are a form of foreign body and attack it like they owed you money. This of course leading to the pretty little bald patches. Now if you mix stress with the condition then you will have an aggravated condition to look forward to.


Although alopecia barbae can develop at any age after puberty, its is more commonly observed after 30. Spotting the condition shouldn’t be rocket science, and should be noticeable by the person very early on.  Normally the affected area will have a smooth shiny surface and sometimes present a burning sensation. These areas may start small but can grow with time. So takle them real quick!!!!




So now that i’ve scared you, let’s jump into to how to fight these b!tches, I mean patches…


  • Minoxidil:

yup!  Who would have thought this would work. Just apply twice a day.


The extracted onion juice is to be applied twice a day and is known to accelerate hair regrowth after two weeks.

  • Garlic Oil: 

  • Lavender:

can slow or even reverse the effects of Alopecia areata.

  • Aloe Vera:

One of my favorite remedies for any skin condition. This plant is highly stimulating in nature and dramatically increases circulation of the blood to any area of the body. Cream or if you can find the plant that would be much more effective.


Besides these, there are many other treatments over the counter you can use if the problem persists. But be sure to attack it from the start. Do not wait because these little f#ckers will grow.  Beard on Brothers Beard ON!!!!!!!
