Traction Alopecia - Mark Glenn Female Hair Replacement & Hair Loss, London, UK

Traction Alopecia

Also referred to as Traumatic Alopecia, it's often caused by ill-fitting wigs, badly fitted hair weaves and human hair extensions.

The hair loss is caused by prolonged tension or "traction" and can include loss caused by ponytails, braids, hair rollers, weaves, twists, locks, clip-in hair extensions or "cornrows".

The prolonged traction (or stress on the hair) loosens the hair from its follicular roots and eventually, if not recognised early, the prolonged traction causes irreversible alopecia.

This condition must be recognised early and the damaging hairstyles or hair additions must change to prevent permanent hair loss.

How we can help

We have a great deal of experience with traction alopecia, seeing a particular increase in clients visiting us after hair loss caused by badly fitted human hair extensions or "hair additions".

In most cases, where suitable, we can use carefully applied and baby-fine Mark Glenn hair extensions as a temporary measure whilst your hair grows back.

We use a hand-made fibre that's half the weight of human hair and applied without the use of any chemicals, bonding solutions, glue, threads or clips.  You can find out more on our hair extensions frequently asked questions page.

Even our own method, if applied incorrectly or to hair that's unsuitable, has the potential to cause traction alopecia so we're always very careful to ensure your suitability.

Alternatively, where the loss is more substantial or thought to be permanent, our more advanced Kinsey System for female hair loss may be more appropriate.

We can advise accordingly during a free consultation at our London studio.
