Traction Alopecia

(Tension/Braids/Tight Hairstyles/Lace Glue)

It’s a lot more common than you think. The thing about this kind of alopecia, is that we cause this damage ourselves.

A sure sign of traction alopecia is redness, bumps, and most of all PAIN in the area. When you pull those ponytails tight, or remove those lace wigs, or get those braids installed and you feel any kind of pain or tightness, just STOP THERE. Your hair follicles are just waiting to SNAP.

Unlike a lot of forms of alopecia, we can control this one! In some cases we damage the follicles but in most, we can stop the damage by discontinuing these styles and focus on styles that don’t ruin our hair follicles.

Luckily this doesn’t have to be permanent damage and it can be healed.
