The Hair Loss Curse[2] (Calvorio[1]) is a curse that removes the victim's hair or headdress[3].


This spell is one of the many topics covered in Curses and Counter-Curses, a work by Professor Vindictus Viridian, along with Jelly-Legs and Tongue-Tying[2].

It can be bought at Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment in Diagon Alley, along with a number of other spells[1].


The incantation is most probably derived from the Latin "calvus", meaning "bald".
