Traction Alopecia: Causes, Prevention, and Treatment

Traction alopecia is a specific type of hair loss that results when tension is applied to hair for a prolonged period of time.

The progression of traction alopecia may be exacerbated by the affected individual, with areas of thinning or balding becoming more pronounced as hair is pulled, twisted, excessively styled, or otherwise abused over time.
