Traction alopecia is a type of hair loss commonly caused by excessive use of braids or weaving, the techniques used in the process exert pressures on the hair follicles as if you were to literally pull the hair out of your scalp. Over time, women who are subject to this type of hair braiding or weaving techniques have a tendency to lose their hair especially along the temples, similar to the receding hairline look that most men exhibit in the early stages of male pattern baldness.
Fortunately, this type of hair loss can be easily treated with the latest in hair transplantation. Below is a patient who had undergone the treatment and you can see the before and after results after a mere 1500 grafts at Ziering Medical.
