Traction Alopecia is a fairly common condition being treated by our practice. What is means is that constant pulling and tightness placed on the hair follicle from certain hairstyles have caused the hair to weaken and fall out. This usually happens in the hairline and the temples. The most common hairstyles causing this problem is tight braiding and the tight weaves in this area. The good news is the hairline and temples respond well to hair transplanting! You can have your natural hair back is these areas, giving you the look you deserve. Come in and let us take a look.
