Man Buns Cause Baldness, Are YOU a Likely Candidate for Traction Alopecia?
A Mississippi dermatologist is sounding the alarm over man buns, saying they’re to blame for an uptick in tension or traction alopecia.
Anyone can be affected by traction alopecia – young or old, male or female. It’s more common within certain groups of the population, because they are more likely to use some of the hairstyling techniques listed above.
For example, African American women and girls are more likely to notice the problem due to braids and weaves. Ballerinas – who tend to wear their hair pulled into very tight ponytails – sometimes suffer from traction alopecia around the hairline as a result.
In a nutshell – if you have a habit of doing something on a frequent basis that puts your hair under some sort of strain, then you are a candidate for traction alopecia.
