Hair are the cornerstone of the self-esteem of many people especially women. Hair loss is the most common issue we hear all the time from the women, but no one knows any of these causes of it. A recent study of hair and hairstyles showed that there is a strong association between scalp-pulling hairstyles and the gradual hair fall.
About one-third of African-American women are suffering from traction alopecia, a gradual hair loss caused by the damage of hair follicle. Ruin of hair follicle caused by the prolonged and repeated tension of the hair roots. This is the cause of hair damage and hair fall.
Traction alopecia is entirely preventable and early intervention can stop and reserve it. Women should avoid the use of thermal straighteners. Glues for extensions, chemicals and also should make loose hairstyles to avoid tension in the hair follicle.
