Traction Alopecia

What is Traction Alopecia?

Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss that is caused by tight hairstyles, such as hair weaves and braids, that exert repetitive, excessive tension on the hair follicles.

African American women are particularly prone to traction alopecia because of tight braiding and harsh treatments, such as chemical relaxers, that can damage the hair and scalp. Sometimes the hair loss can be due to glues and adhesives ripping out hair follicles from the roots.

We recommend caution to both women and men regarding tight hairstyles and advise careful consideration when selecting someone to treat their hair.
