African American women with hair loss due to traction alopecia (Hair loss due to tight braiding of the hair.) Hair transplant is a good option to repair the hair loss. Please note that tight curly hair is difficult to work. It is best to avoid this type of hair loss completely by not braiding hair tightly. Hair restoration for a high hairline, scars in the frontal hairline and traction alopecia is a good option for cosmetic improvement.
