Traction Alopecia – Hair Loss on the Edges

Traction alopecia results from repeated tension or pulling on hair follicles. It commonly occurs in those who frequently wear tight hairstyles like braids or weaves. Other sources of tension, such as hair extensions or hats, can also contribute.

Symptoms vary but often include scalp thinning, bald spots, itchiness, soreness, and potentially scarring.

Treatment for Traction Alopecia

Treatment involves stopping the behavior causing hair loss, such as avoiding tight hairstyles or removing extensions. Hair may regrow naturally once tension is relieved, but in severe cases, topical or oral medications or hair transplant surgery may be necessary.

Seeking professional medical advice is crucial for early intervention and successful treatment.

For patients with certain ethnic backgrounds and hair textures, consulting a skilled hair transplant surgeon, like Dr. Katona, is essential.
