While it is commonly assumed that hair loss is solely due to genetics, some lifestyle factors can contribute. Stress, poor nutrition, and certain medical conditions are among these factors. Still, traction alopecia, a less commonly discussed cause of hair loss, is caused by anything that puts pressure on or pulls your hair, such as overly tight ponytails or wearing tight hats too frequently.
In contrast to normal age-related hair loss, traction alopecia includes symptoms such as redness of the scalp, bumps, soreness or stinging of the scalp, itching, scaling, inflammation of the hair follicles, known as folliculitis, and pus-filled blisters on the scalp.
Without treatment, affected hair follicles become so damaged and scarred that they can no longer produce new hair strands, resulting in bald patches in those areas.
The pattern of traction alopecia is usually distinct from other types of hair loss. Other types of alopecia typically affect the entire scalp, starting at the hairline or the crown of the head. In contrast, traction alopecia usually only affects the hairs that are being pulled. This can cause uneven balding patterns, commonly concentrated along the front and sides of your scalp.
Whether your hair loss is due to alopecia, medical treatments such as chemotherapy, thyroid or hormonal imbalances, excessive stress, or simply hereditary, the fact remains that you have lost an important part of your image - not just how you see yourself, but also how others see you.
