Ponytails, braids, weaves that are worn or used frequently and/or too tight can lead to hair loss. Hairlines experience receding quicker from these stylings. This sort of hair loss is considered permanent. Hair loss from these styles are commonly associated with traction alopecia. Frequent hair dying, perming or relaxing of the hair can cause permanent follicle damage. Ultimately this would lead to no hair growing back from those damaged areas, and creating bald spots.
With any hair loss, seeing a dermatologist to get the right treatment is imperative. At Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser, we offer many resources and treatments for hair loss, such as hair restoration. Come in for a consultation for all your hair loss concerns.
