African American Hair Loss:
Why is it worse?

Hair loss is always a concern for both men and women. However, for African American men and women, hair loss can be severe because it is often due to treatments and hair styles which are very popular with black men and women. Extensive use of chemical relaxers, scalp skin burns from relaxant treatments, use of extensions which pull the hair, and braiding which can severely pull the hair..

Here are some examples - all of which were corrected by hair transplants.
