I was wearing extensions for a week they are clip ins. I never wore them until a week ago and when I wore them I started noticing alot of hair coming out in the shower so I stopped wearing them. Sadly my hair hasnt stopped falling out and now I have a huge Bald spot hidden in the back of my hair. my husband says you can see hair growing back in all the spots hair fell out in and I even can feel little hairs when I touch the spots.
I think I have traction alopecia since I caught the stages early can my hair grow back? Does biota botanicals help?

Traction Alopecia and Supplements
Since you have only worn your extensions for a week and you are noticing signs of growth, this seems to indicate that your follicles are function just fine.
Traction alopecia occurs when there is prolonged pulling of the hair which tears the follicles and they become damaged by inflammation. Hair loss is permanent at this point.
Make sure to choose hair styles which do not contribute to constant tension on the follicles to avoid the development of Traction Alopecia.
