For those who regularly wear tight, braided or dreadlocked hairstyles, this type of balding is common. As well, tight buns, ponytails or hair weaves can lead to what’s known as traction alopecia. The hair roots let go from the follicle, and though they may initially grow back, if the tension is chronic, bald patches and receding can be permanent.
Signs of traction alopecia are usually most visible at the hairline. Hair transplant techniques can restore a patient’s hair and wearing loose, tension-free styles will be recommended for long term maintenance.
Do you know what’s causing your hair loss?
Before undergoing a hair transplant, Toronto surgeons meet with clients to discuss their concerns and examine their scalp.

The good news for you is in most of those cases; the hair will grow back.
It’s essential to discuss your health picture with your hair specialist so that together, you can develop your restoration plan. Your strategy may include hair grafts, along with PRP injections, laser light therapy or even nutritional therapy.
