Is Traction Alopecia the reason for my hair loss?

Traction Alopecia can be the reason for hair loss in some circumstances and is generally caused by regularly pulling the hair tightly in one direction, such as for a ponytail or creating dreadlocks.

Putting hair under such strain can cause Traction Alopecia with the hair loss usually occurring around the temples and sides of the head. Other less common causes can be caused by tightly worn helmets such as motorcycle or cycling helmets which can rub at localised areas of the scalp.

To properly determine if Traction Alopecia is the cause of your hair loss you need to consult with a specialist such as those at Advanced Hair Studio. You can do this at a free, no obligation consultation by simply completing the online application form on this page.
