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
