Devastating Form Of Hair Loss
Problem For Men And Women Around The World
NYC hair transplant patients often seek help for hair loss caused by traction alopecia which is most often a result of hair styles like tight braids or the wearing of heavy weaves and extensions. Those with dreadlocks may also find bald patches that appear on the scalp surrounding locks and remain permanently over the years.
The issue of traction alopecia isn’t restricted to African American people, but due to the curly nature of African hair, sebum which naturally protects the hair, coats the hair shafts less efficiently and leaves strands prone to breakage. As well, tight braided or dreadlocked hairstyles are more commonly worn by African American people in the US.
The evidence of hair loss will typically appear first at the hairline and proceed to receding or bald patches. Celebrities such as Naomi Campbell have talked publicly about the damage and hair loss that years of tough hair styling have caused them.
