Traction Alopecia Awareness

I don't have any personal experience with Traction Alopecia but I do know that it's an avoidable condition. In a nutshell it is when too much pressure (or pulling) is applied to the scalp when doing hairstyles, etc. Anyway, I would like to help spread the word and raise awareness!

Please read these two posts from two GREAT hair blogs for more information and then check out!

Hair Stress by Happy Girl Hair

So make sure that you are very gentle in your styling and do not pull the hair too tight! If your child says it hurts - believe them!! (Traction Alopecia can occur without pain, too, so that is not the only indicator to go by.)

Have a Happy Saturday!
