HotComb Alopecia(Scalp Condition)-Hairline Loss Due To Sickness
Traction alopecia and central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA): also known as “hot comb alopecia”): Every person has a different scalp-and-root tolerance to chemical and physical trauma before it results in a negative reaction on the hair and follicles.
Tight ponytails, braids, hair accessories, burns and chemicals can all cause hair breakage, hair follicle damage and scarring, called local trauma, when used or experienced for a prolonged amount of time. Discuss your daily regimens with your hairstylist, who can identify local trauma by the patterns of breakage and hair loss and can teach you how to avoid or correct the problem.
If there is evidence of infection and pain, a dermatologist can take a scalp biopsy and look at the follicles to determine the severity of the condition and then prescribe the proper medications and treatment so your hair may regrow.
