Most seen Hair Problem in Women
Traction alopecia is a form of alopecia, or gradual hair loss, caused primarily by pulling force being applied to the hair. This commonly results from the suffer frequently wearing their hair in a particularly tight ponytail, pigtails, or braids. It is also seen occasionally in long-haired people who use barrettes to keep hair out of their faces. Traction alopecia is the recession of the hairline due to chronic traction, hair pulling and is characterised by a fringe along the marginal hairline on physical exam. Even though this Fringe Sign is considered a useful clinical marker of this condition, cases of frontal fibrosing alopecia presenting with an unusual reaction of the hairline have been described.
