Is Your Hairstyle Causing Your Thinning Hair?

Thinning hair is the result of regular, non-genetic hair loss that can be caused by a number of causes, including hormonal changes in the body experienced by pregnant women and after menopausal women, to poor nutrition as a result of a disease time.

Aside from these reasons, a very common and often overlooked cause of thinning hair continues to wear the hair in hard hairstyles, putting unnecessary tension and pressure on the hair roots which routinely reduce them over time and cause them to fall out early. When the hair reaches the end of its normal growth phase, they fall out and preferably after going through the rest, they should grow and go through the whole cycle again. However, constantly pulling, or pressure on the hair damages the follicles and can cause them to become inflamed. Inflammation inhibits circulation by limiting the follicles access to vital nutrients required for healthy hair to grow.

Here is a list of the most common hairstyles, which in the case of exaggeration can lead to thinning or trachealopecia.

1. Drawbar horses

These hair pieces have a comb and drawstring to secure them on top of the head. Staple pads are attached to the hair after the hair has been folded back into a dense bun. Hair gel is sometimes used to get a smooth and smooth finish to the natural hair held in a bun. The horseshoe ponytail is then fixed by clamping it in place with the cam and using the drawbar to secure it. Although they are a convenient way of styling your hair, frequent and constant use can cause thinning hair and bald patches, especially in the area where the ponytail is attached.

2. Seal the buns

The hair is twisted, rolled hard and then fastened with pins or ties. The continuous effect of turning and rolling the hair can weaken the threads and damage the follicles, resulting in thin hair.

3. Weaves

This is a style that is very popular (but not limited to) among black women and means that human or synthetic hair tissues are attached to natural hair, often sewing on it in the grooves. Wefts are sometimes also attached by using an anti-sponge adhesive called adhesive adhesive. Weaving is often used to stop the appearance of thinning hair, but unfortunately it can also cause dehydration and hair loss, as the corners to which the extensions are attached are very dense to make the fabric longer. Binding can also cause hair loss when a proper remover is not used to break the adhesive bond completely prior to removal.

4. Braids

The hair is braided in thin, supple braids, sometimes with the addition of decorative objects or with hair extensions braided in the hair (remember Brandy's signature braids?). Apart from the pulling effect caused by the dense braid, the hairline has been hit by the hairs to which the extensions are attached are usually weak and unable to cope with the weight of the extra hair.

5. Cornrows

These are a type of braids where the hair is braided near the scalp. This style is favored for being a low maintenance, aesthetic hairstyle, but can lead to tractional apecia if the cornrows are too tight because they put undue pressure on the hair, especially around the hairline.

6. Pinch hair extensions

These hair extensions are made by cutting machine-made hair weights in different lengths and attaching clips to each piece. They can be cut on the natural hair in different places, including the back, face sides, etc. They are usually used to add color to the hair or to give the appearance of fuller hair. Improper application by cutting the extensions too tightly or allowing the rocks to dig into the scalp at all times when applied can lead to traktionalopeci .
