from a medical professional an expert in traction alopecia

Traction Alopecia can be a permanent hair loss condition if not detected before irreplaceable damage occurs. On the other hand it is reversible if noticed and treated in the early stages.

So lets try to prevent this type of self-inflicted hair loss by recognizing and changing these common hairstyles and styling practices:

  • Tight Braids: If it hurts, its too tight do not go through pain to get neat edges while wearing any type of braids. The result could leave you with no hair along the hair line.
  • Overprocessing the Hair: Chemical treatments such as dyes, relaxers, bleaches, and texturizers reduce the strength of the hairs keratin structure. Afro texture hair is already fragile and chemicals only make it weaker, which can result in hair loss after just brushing or combing. If you overprocess, you can suffer serious hair loss and breakage.
  • Weaving and Wigs using Glue: If you are using hair glue to put hair extensions in your hair, stop. Its too risky. If the glue is not applied correctly, your hair will come out during the take down process and possibly permanently.
  • Leaving Braids or Weave in Too Long: If your braids are hanging on thin strands and new growth can be seen a mile away, your braids are long overdo. The weight of the braids can pull your hair out. Do not keep braids or weave in your hair longer than 2 months, the less time the better.
  • Tight Ponytails and Pulled Back Hairstyles: You see the effects of these hairstyles in little girls. Their edges become thin with much breakage because the choice hairstyle is cute little pigtails almost everyday. A key note is to only wear ponytails for short periods of time and not often. Another note is just to not pull hair back too tight.

Traction Alopecia is most common in African American women and children. We have to change some styling practices that leads to this hair loss. Even some professional stylist and braiders do not understand how important it is to be gentle with our hair.

Just note that the hair loss condition of Traction Alopecia is a serious matter and unfortunately no medical treatment is available for severe cases outside of getting hair transplants. So do not abuse your hair.

Traction Alopecia: A Common But Preventable Condition

Some hairstyles can be worn so tight that they cause a type of hair loss condition called traction alopecia

The good news is that hair loss due to traction alopecia can be reversible and typically temporary, according to the American Hair Loss Council, if caught early enough. The bad news is that in the more advanced stages, hair follicles can be so damaged by the trauma, that most women opt to trim it all off and wait to see if hair will re-grow, says Diahna Husbands of Diahna Lynn Hair Studio, who also says she sees at least two clients a week at her hair replacement studio suffering from this type of hair loss.

Signs and symptoms of traction alopecia

  • Did you ever or do you have to take a pain reliever after getting your braids done?
  • Does your scalp get sore where you wear your ponytail?
  • Has your hairline receded considerably over the years or recently ?
  • Do you notice some thinning or hair breakage around your hairline?
  • Do you notice little bumps and redness around your hairline?
  • Have you been wearing cornrows or braids your whole life?
  • Do you have dreadlocks that are forced to be too tight?
  • Do your hair extensions break off?
  • Do you have a hair system that is attached with clips or links?

Traction alopecia: How did I lose my hair?

Sometimes traction alopecia can go on for years, which results from wearing your hairstyle too tightly.

While most commonly seen in African American women who wear a full head of cornrows, the condition results from any hairstyle (like a simple daily ponytail) being worn so tightly that it actually pulls out the hairs from the roots and causes inflammation and trauma to the follicles, explains Dr. Valerie Callender, M.D., board-certified dermatologist, specialist in African American skin and hair disorders, and Director of the Callender Skin and Laser Center in Washington D.C. This trauma throws the follicles into a resting state prematurely and hair does not regrow as long as the area is being pulled too tightly. The condition is usually evident in a thinning and receding at the hairline, thats where hairs are pulled the hardest and sometimes infections, pustules, and papules will appear at the site of the damage as well. In addition, many hairs will also just break off from the tension on the hair shaft and you will notice signs of this condition in a thinning around your front hairline area or at the spot where you gather your ponytail.

Traction alopecia can also be caused in both men and women from a hair system attached with clips or links that are pulling too tightly, from hair extensions that are too heavy for the existing hair they are attached to, from a weave thats too tight or even from dreadlocks that have grown too heavy for the scalp and hair to support. If you ever feel any tension or pain in your scalp, visit your hair stylist immediately to have your style loosened, readjusted, and evaluated, cautions Husbands.

Traction alopecia: Will my hair grow back?

In most cases hair grows back, but it can take about six months or more and an obvious change in hair style to achieve healthy re-growth. Husbands advises, That means no more relaxing, no more straight irons, no more tight braiding you need to let the hair follicles get back to business without putting any additional stress on them. You may need to find a new hair stylist if youve been going to the same one for years all the while youve had this condition! And that doesnt mean braiding it tightly somewhere else on your head traction alopecia can occur anywhere on your head. If you still want to braid in another area, just braid much more gently. If you have to take Advil after you get your hair done, then its too tight!

For more stubborn cases involving infected follicles and prolonged traction, along with changing your style immediately, the most common course of action is oral and topical antibiotics followed by either cortisone injections and/or topical cortisone cream to reduce the inflammation that is damaging the follicles, explains Callender. After that, we may prescribe Rogaine to stimulate quicker regrowth at 2 percent generally, or 5 percent depending on the amount and severity of the hair follicle trauma. And the great thing about Rogaine for traction alopecia is that once follicles regain their health and start growing, Rogaine will no longer be necessary. Its one time we can prescribe Rogaine for temporary results that last!

The bottom line on traction alopecia

Early detection and making the appropriate style change as soon as possible is the key to overcoming traction alopecia. I also advise most clients to see a dermatologist just to make sure of the reason for the hair loss. A proper diagnosis is also the key to success with any hair loss issue, advises Husbands.

You should never use wax on your dreads. For one, wax traps moisture, causing build up and a potential breeding ground for mold. Also, it's normal to have extra "fuzz" up top, especially in caucasian hair. The best things you can do is use a sea salt and water spray to help with the locking process. Also, use baking soda, or a natural cleanser such as tea tree oil to remove the build up of wax.

I've only been locking since Match 2010 which I've been told I have baby locs or teenage locs now. I've been thru 3 different stylists, from using gel, wax, and interlocked once. I'm glad to have came across this ad as I was about to get my roots tightened by interlocking. I have about a good inch or more or new growth and need to know how I can really maintain it without it sticking up all over? Now I'm trying to figure out how to actually allow my hair to dread and keep it maintained for my new health care job. I appreciate your advice.

Lmbo ok I just have to laugh at how crazy you all have gotten! I mean really resorting to name calling? Lol how very mature. If you don't agree with me that's fine, in your opinion there's only one right way to loc your hair that's fine too, it's not factual but it's ok to believe that. You want to insist no one has healthy locs if they're not freeform also your opinion but fine too. I don't believe in name calling when people say things I don't like or throwing tantrums when I don't get my way lol. I don't know I just graduated elementary school and I guess grew out of it but to each their own.You don't have to agree with me about Gov jobs (I speak of ones in the US as that's where I am) but please do try and get one with your hair looking the way it does and let me know how it works out for you. In many agencies men aren't even allowed to have facial hair unless they can prove a religious reason and even then it must be strictly maintained and manicured. Sorry but the I'm a dirty derelict just doesn't wash everywhere, tsk don't know why? Lol I find the fact that you all and especially the owner of the site can't have a normal debate about the difference in locking methods both sad and upsetting as it makes me wonder about how you handle other life situations certainly not well if you behave like this. I feel bad for any children you might have if you teach them to behave like this they're not gonna make it far. It's kind of sad really but at least it helps others to think they don't know what they're talking about as they have to resort to anger and name calling to get a point across.You know I was explaining to my youth group the proper way to have a debate and the wrong way you all will be a perfect example to show exactly what not to do and how not to be taken seriously. And since several have locs it will be perfect! I know little Bre especially will enjoy this. She's had palm rolled locs since she was 5 now she just turned 14 and they're beautiful no breakage and yeah she's not balding in anyway has to get her hair trimmed to keep it the length she wants. Not to mention her mothers locs, her aunts locs, her cousins locs lol it's a family of locs! All palm rolled and quite lovely some dyed some natural but locs one and the same. Except Grandma who has a very fine texture of hair and choose to never have locs but her hair is thinning on the top, hmmm maybe somehow the bad loc monster is sneaking over to her hair and causing her to go bald, we'd better all watch out any of us can be its next victim, lmao!Ok, ok in all seriousness stop being crazy if you don't want to interlock don't but quit trying to sell it as something bad or dangerous, you don't see me or anyone that I could see doing that. We could but that wouldn't be anymore true then what you're saying. It's fine to have opinions even differing ones but lets not try and sell them as facts. You don't like the style, it may not have worked for some of you but that's not a reflection on the style just means it wasn't a fit for you. I used to get relaxers til my hair was damaged by them, I stopped but my cousin won't take the hint she keeps on straightening but wonders why her hair keeps breaking lol the sad truth is the relaxer is not bad (I think it is but that's my opinion, not fact) my sister has one and her hair is lovely always has been probably always will be. We got the same relaxers but my hair was damaged hers came out picture perfect, it wasn't the style meant for me so I moved on. I didn't blame the relaxers I blamed myself for continuing to put it in my hair when it was causing damage. If something doesn't work for you stop doing it don't blame the something. That's not realistic and makes you look crazy.

I have seen this many times in person too. I've seen people that have been braiding or cornrowing all of their lives, and they're nearly half bald by the time they're in their 20's. The worst part is, most of that hair will never come back.
