40% of women suffer from thinning hair and hair loss. And among African-American women, hair loss can be even more common. Hair styles, including doobies, weaves, corn rows and tight braids, frequent chemical processing and the structure of hair can cause ethnic hair loss.
If you’re suffering from ethnic hair loss at the edges or a burned scalp we’re here to help. We have many hair loss solutions to help you feel like yourself again. First, it’s important to understand what may be causing ethnic hair loss.
- Over brushing
Brushing is a styling method which over time, inevitably puts pressure on the hair
This will cause styling fatigue, which is repetitively relying on the same hair style. This will put some strain on the hair overtime.
- Wrapping it too tight
This is the biggest reason for damage from Doobies. Stylists wrap the hair too tight and it strains the edges.
Traction alopecia is the gradual loss of hair due to a frequent or constant abrasive pulling force on the hair. This is the leading cause of hair loss among African American women because of popular cultural hairstyling, which frequently involves extensions, weaving, braiding and corn rows, ponytails and barrettes. Women suffering from traction alopecia will begin to see gradual and noticeable hair loss along the edges of their scalp. This includes the front and back of the hairline, the temples and behind the ears.
Central Cicatricial Centifugal Alopecia (CCCA)
Is a form of traction alopecia caused by chemical relaxers, oils, gels, dyes and bleaches these chemicals weaken the keratin structure of the follicle, which reduces its strength and causes the hair to break more easily. CCCA is the second leading cause of hair loss in African American women, usually resulting in thinning along the edges of the scalp and at the center.
