is there a cure for alopecia ?

There is no specific cure for baldness yet. However, there i a test you can take to see if you will go bald. It is called HairDX. If you test positive and will eventually go bald, you can start to take propecia as preventative maintenance. You may not stop all the loss, but you could slow it down and make the loss a lot less. You may even keep enough hair to not be considered bald. I guess this is sort of a cure for baldness
