Traction alopecia is caused by cosmetic hair stress. This is a form of hair loss where tension is applied to the hair for a prolonged period of time such as an over-tight ponytail, plaiting, extensions or through using too tight rollers to style the hair. Traction causes hair to loosen from its follicular roots. The action of pulling on the hair over a long period of time results in the gradual shrinking of the hair follicle so the hairs that are produced become finer and finer. Onset is gradual and often takes 2 to 3 years to become apparent. In the initial stages, the hair loss is reversible however prolonged tension may cause permanent localised hair loss to those specific follicles under tension. Traction alopecia differs from other types of hair loss in that it is behavioural.
