Traction alopecia

If you dont touch and damage them routinelly undamage my hair follicles are able to regrow again . But ıf hair follicles had a persistant damage by pulling force, you have to get a hair restoration surgery to get them back .

Traction Alopecia

It's possible to repair follicles damaged within the past several weeks or sometimes even months, but if the hair has been gone for a year or more there's virtually no chance of it coming back. To get hair back in those areas you need a hair transplant.

Traction alopecia

Traction alopecia usually causes the follicles to come out and therefore they will not grow back. If you have had it for a long time then the chances are the hairs wint grow back. If you want to replave the lost hair you need to do hair restoration surgery and consult with a hairtransplant specialist.

I have traction alopecia will I be able to grow my hair back?

After years of no growth from traction alopecia it is unlikely that the follicles can be salvaged.  A hair transplant may be your best option.

Traction alopecia

If the traction alopecia has been present for over a year, I doubt you will grow it back. Hair transplants work nicely for this condition
