Traction alopecia is a type of gradual hair loss caused by external pulling of hairs. This pulling causes tension on the roots of strands, weakening them over the time. This type of hair loss is commonly caused by certain hairstyles that require tight pulling of strands – tight ponytails, buns, cornrows and dreadlocks etc. Wearing hats and berets for longer periods may also lead to temporary or permanent traction alopecia. Regardless of whether your alopecia is temporary or permanent, the state can be devastating.
While permanent hair loss requires a hair transplant surgery, temporary symptoms can be effectively reversed through simple lifestyle changes.
