What is Traction Alopecia?
Traction Alopecia is a form of hair loss that is gradual and caused because of constant pulling of hair strands or excessive pressure applied to scalp and hair. The constant and repetitive pulling of the hair puts a strain on the hair follicle, making hair fragile and prone to breakage. The strain on the hair follicle can become so intense that it can cause the hair follicle to separate from the hair bulb entirely, causing hair loss, as well as causing inflammation around the hair bulb and scalp.
Hair Styles That Cause Traction Alopecia
Hair styles that cause Traction Alopecia are:
- Tight ponytails
- Tight Wigs
- Hair Extensions
To stop Traction Alopecia from spreading, avoid the hairstyles that caused it. Once you stop putting pressure on your hair, the hair loss will stop but that doesn’t mean that your hair will automatically grow back. It is likely that you will require treatment to restore hair growth.
