When is it too late to fix Traction Alopecia?

Traction alopecia is a kind of hair loss caused by pulling the hair excessively tightly, which damages the hair follicles and prevents them from developing healthy hair. It is especially common in those who have tight braids, cornrows, or other hairstyles that exert a lot of strain on the hair.

As a black woman, I am all too familiar with the pain and frustration of traction alopecia. It might not only harm your hair, but it can also harm your self-esteem and confidence.
