The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of hair transplantation, versus the transplant technique without actual hair transplantation (i.e. scalp irritation) in the treatment of alopecia areata of the scalp. Those in the hair transplant group will have a small area of the scalp with active hair follicles removed. The affected area will receive a transplant, which will be prepared by creating tiny holes with a needle or blade followed by the placing of a graft. Those in the scalp irritation group will have the areas affected with alopecia areta stimulated like that of the transplant group, but without a graft.
