Hair Loss in Women
Certain hairstyles that involve pulling, straightening, or braiding can produce a condition known as traction alopecia. This is caused by prolonged tension on the hair and scalp. The type of hair loss should be most obvious in areas where the hair is under the greatest tension or strain.
Changing to a different hairstyle should allow your hair to grow back normally.
