Traction Alopecia

This type of hair loss is seen around the hairline, especially around the temples and above the ears. How does it happen? It is the result of tight hairstyles- i.e. tight weaves, braids and ponytails. How is it treated? Fortunately, this type of hair loss is reversible in the initial stages. And treatments include: refraining from the same hairstyles that caused the hair loss, as well as over the counter supplements (vitamin b complex, biotin, vitamin c, e and zinc) and topical minoxidil (Rogaine).
