Traction Alopecia - will my hair grow back?

I am a 39 year old woman. About 2 weeks ago, I discovered a smooth, bald patch about the size of a quarter near the top of my head. It is in the very spot where I've been using a hair clip for about 3 months - one that pulled my hair very tightly into a bun. From what I've read, it sounds like traction alopecia (no itching, scarring, etc, and the rest of my hair is unaffected). Of course, I stopped using hair clips, ponytail holders, etc., and mainly keep my hair down. The condition hasn't gotten worse, or better, in the last 2 weeks. Does this sound like traction alopecia? If so, will the hair grow back - and if so, do you know how long it takes for this to begin? Any advice? Thanks for any help you can give! Susan

Hi Sue,

Here is an artilcle that refers to traction alopecia and talks about wearing your hair in a tight bun too. Maybe if it is traction alopecia and you caught it early enough your hair may grow back.. Good luck.
