Abstract

Traction alopecia is prevalent in patients of color. Its significance in clinical practice may be underemphasized due to the transient nature of the condition; however, it has the potential to become permanent and cause significant psychosocial distress. Understanding of afro-textured hair and cultural practices, as well as early recognition and treatment, provides an opportunity to prevent permanent traction alopecia and long-term sequelae.
