People often ask: Do certain hairstyles lead to hair loss? The short answer is – it does.
Known as “traction alopecia,” this type of hair loss is caused by a pull on the hair. Most frequently, it can be induced by hairstyles such as:
- Buns & ponytails
- Cornrows & dreadlocks
- Hair extensions, weaves, or anything on the hair that is otherwise putting pressure on it
- Braided hair, if braided tightly or used for months at a time
- Wearing rollers for extended periods of time (i.e. overnight)
If your hairstyle causes significant pulling or pain, consider it harmful in the long run. If you notice thinning or feel stinging on your scalp? Change your hairstyle.
If you have found yourself suffering from traction alopecia or any other form of hair loss, a few hair loss products, even for traction alopecia, have scientific backing. And many of these solutions require frequent upkeep. Luckily, there is a cosmetic procedure that yields immediate results while requiring little to no maintenance.
