Hair Loss in Afro-Textured Hair

Hair Loss in Afro-Textured Hair

Hair loss can be devastating, especially because we live in a culture where so much of our self-perception and self-worth is determined by our appearance. What’s worse is that due to factors like your genetic disposition and the environment you live in, some people will be more prone to hair loss than others. For example, while all hair types are susceptible to hair loss, those with afro-textured hair are more likely to experience a specific kind called traction alopecia.

Traction alopecia occurs when a hair follicle becomes inflamed from being pulled too tightly for an extended period of time. Afro-textured hair experiences this type of hair loss more frequently because both men and women with afro-textured hair tend to wear weaves. This, combined with the added fragility that accompanies afro-textured hair, means that you may be more likely to experience hair loss or bald patches.

Furthermore, men with afro-textured hair commonly report cases of androgenetic alopecia, or male patterned baldness. Men with this hair type are also more susceptible to frontal hair loss, otherwise known as frontal fibrosing alopecia. Though no one knows the cause of this prevalence for sure, scientists suggest that genetics and environmental factors play a strong role.

You do have a few options to combat this hair loss. Men and women will sometimes stop wearing their hair so tightly but, in doing so, sacrifice an element of originality and uniqueness. Others wear extensions, but these will only work if you have long hair. And still others try a combination of creams and medications – most of which do not reverse hair loss in the long run.
