Traction alopecia is a cause of hair loss which mostly affects the hairline and frontal zone. It is common among women mostly due to hair extension or hair braiding but can often occur in men as well.

In most cases even the follicles on the sides and the back can be affected. Traction results from prolonged repetitive tension on the follicle when hair is pulled in the same way for a long period of time. Eventually, the follicle becomes damaged and scarred to the point that it can no longer produce a new hair. This is more common in some communities and could be due to dreadlocks, braiding or tying the hair into a top knot/bun. Oftentimes in these cases there is no male pattern balding. This suggests that the hair loss had nothing to do with genetics and once the prolonged traction is eliminated no further hair loss is expected.

This case is also an illustration that there is no cookie cutter approach when to comes to hairline design and the overall plan can vary greatly from patient to patient.
