Ponytails are convenient, not to mention cute — remember Reese Witherspoon’s Barbie updo at the Oscars? These days, fashion magazines are filled with photos of models and stars sporting ponytails and braids. While these styles are fun and easy, they can also be hard on your hair. It sounds as if you might have traction alopecia, a type of hair loss caused by wearing hairstyles that pull on your scalp. Here’s what may be happening: Your hair grows out from hair follicles that sit deep in your scalp. If your hair is constantly being pulled, the roots get tugged loose from the follicles, and the hairs start falling out faster than they normally would. The good news is, if you catch the condition early, the hair can grow back. Here's how to protect your hair and avoid traction alopecia:
1. When you put your hair up, don't pull too tight. Wear loose braids, buns, and ponytails, and take them down at the end of the day.
