  • Bad nutrition that excludes the required vitamins and minerals
  • Excessive use of hair relaxers and dyes
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes such as during pregnancy and menopause
  • Medication (please consult your doctor for more information on the side effects of your medication)
  • Product residues from “leave in” potions or not rinsing well
  • Scalp conditions like dermatitis and persistent dandruff
  • Stress
  • Tight braids, dreadlocks and weaves can lead to traction alopecia (hair loss from persistently pulling it too hard)

Hair treatments for ethnic hair:

  • Avoid over styling hair
  • Brush or comb hair more gently
  • Eat a more balanced nutritional diet
  • Massage the area to stimulate blood flow
  • Reduce the tension from pulling and twisting by wearing looser braids and dreadlocks (in the case of traction alopecia)
  • Use gentler styling techniques
