What's Going On With Your Hairline?

Have you seen this before?

The name for this is traction alopecia. Traction Alopecia is a form of alopecia, or gradual hair loss, caused primarily by pulling force being applied to the hair. Are you wondering what causes traction alopecia? Here are the top 5 things that cause traction alopecia:

1. Hair being braided to tight
2. Tight ponytails
3. Having hair braided in the same braid patterns
4. Hair accessories worn to much
5. Chemical damage

The best thing to do for your hair is to give it a rest! Hair and scalp have to have time to breath. That means no hair weaves, braids, and wigs. When wearing either of these protective styles, hair must be still trimmed and deep conditioned regularly. Healthy hair and scalp is always the best option.
