Severe traction alopecia and severe chemical trauma – Treatment in progress

06.02.2017 in BEFORE & AFTERS, BLACK AFRO-CARIBBEAN HAIR LOSS, FEMALE HAIR LOSS, FEMALE HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED

Yvonne visited us for the first time back in October 2015 and was diagnosed as suffering with severe traction alopecia and severe chemical trauma of the hair and scalp.

Traction alopecia is caused by putting hair under constant strain – by wearing tight braids, pigtails, ponytails, repeated use of hair rollers, hair extensions, hair weaves or wigs attached with clips/tape or glue. Severe chemical trauma is usually caused by bleaching, perming, relaxing and dyeing your hair. Chemicals involved in such processes can damage hair follicles and contribute to hair loss.

” I have used Vitastim and Biostim treatments for the past 12 months. I am very happy with how my hair now looks. As you can see it was really thin and dry at the start of treatment at The Hair Centre. I was quickly going bald. I am 25, and far to young to go bald. I saw The Hair Centre Before and After Photos and thought, why not, I’ll have another go. I took The Hair Centre advice. I must admit that I have used different treatments in the past such as minoxidil: unsuccessfully with another London Hair Centre. But as you can see my hair now looks perfectly fine and there is no trace of baldness or thinning. I am delighted with my results and send all my friends to The Hair Centre.”

Black women's hair loss tied to braiding, weaving: study

12.04.2011 in BLACK AFRO-CARIBBEAN HAIR LOSS

Very tight braiding or weaving may be linked to a permanent type of hair loss that affects many African American women, according to a U.S. study.

Prolonged pulling at the hair strands may cause inflammation of the hair follicle, which has been showed to lead to scarring.

In principle, this could lead to scarring hair loss or central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia, a type of balding that starts at the top of the scalp and then spreads slowly to the rest.

“Our survey results suggest there is a high prevalence of central hair loss among African American women,” wrote Angela Kyei, of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, who led the study.

Though the findings couldn’t prove that hair grooming was at the base of the problem, women might still want to take them into consideration, she added.

The study, published in the Archives of Dermatology, is based on health questionnaires and scalp examinations of 326 African American women.

Nearly all of them straightened their curls chemically and about one in six had scarring hair loss. More than half the women with this condition said they had braids, weaves or hair extensions, as compared to only a third of those with less severe hair loss.

Kyei did note, however, that there could be other causes for the balding. The researchers found that women with type 2 diabetes were more likely to have scarring hair loss, as were those with bacterial scalp infections.

“If there is any take-home message from this study, it is that hair grooming is not the only thing you should look at in these patients,” she added.
