These Common hair styles Contribute to Hair Loss in Women!


Certain hairstyles may look fashionable but could actually be contributing to hair loss in women. The hairstyles that potentially led to the greatest hair loss are ones that cause traction at the root of women’s hair, or what is otherwise known as “traction alopecia”.
This is based on a study by researchers from the John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore


The researchers discovered a strong association between scalp-pulling hair styles and traction alopecia. Though all women can suffer from it traction alopecia is the most common type of hair loss among black women. Whenever a person’s hair is pulled back tightly, ‘hair follicles are under continuous pressure.’’ The article mentioned that women wanting to avoid hair loss from traction alopecia “Should switch to other kinds of hairstyles that do not put pressure or lead to tension at the root of the hair.”
