Hair loss can be devastating, mainly because our culture values appearance; thus, hair loss is particularly devastating. Genetics and environment make some more prone to hair loss. 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. Afro-textured hair is more prone to this loss, partly because of frequent weave-wearing. This, combined with the added fragility accompanying afro-textured hair, means you may be more likely to experience hair loss or bald patches.
Furthermore, men with afro-textured hair commonly report androgenetic alopecia or male-patterned baldness. Men with this hair type are also more susceptible to frontal hair loss or frontal fibrosing alopecia. Though no one knows the cause of this prevalence, scientists suggest that genetics and environmental factors play a vital role.
Some opt for looser hairstyles to combat hair loss, though it might change their unique style. 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.
