Hair Inflamation-Hot Tools Disadvantage(Hair Alteration)

The hot petrolatum used with the iron was thought to cause a chronic inflammation around the upper segment of the hair follicle leading to degeneration of the external root sheath. In 1992, a hot comb alopecia study was conducted, and discovered was that there was a poor correlation between the usage of a hot comb and the onset and progression of disease.

The study concludes that the term follicular degeneration syndrome (FDS) is proposed for this clinically and histological distinct form of scarring alopecia.
