Black Women And Hair Loss: How To Stop The Cycle
By Sabrina R. Perkins

 
Hair loss is not just a problem for men as women actually 
make up 40% of American hair loss sufferers according to the 
American Hair Loss Association.  

Honestly, many women are suffering in silence and this devastating problem is 
no more felt harder than in the African American community.  

What Black Women Need To Know About Hair Loss 

A study published earlier this year and presented at the American Academy of Dermatology’s 
74th Annual meeting showed alarming concerns for Black women. 
The study showed that Black women were more prone to hair loss and even more alarming 
was the fact that we are less likely to seek professional help to rectify the problem. 

The cause for most of the hair loss for black women is a condition called 
Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA) which is a disorder that causes 
inflammation and destruction to the hair follicles, can cause scarring and 
even permanent hair loss. This vital and alarming information was provided by Dr. Lenzy, 
a Board-certified dermatologist and clinical associate at 
University of Connecticut, Farmington, Conn.  

5 TIPS ON CARING FOR YOUR NATURAL HAIR WHILE WEARING WIGS

Dr. Lenzy, along with other experts believe hair loss is a genetic disposition among 
black women and they are increasing the risk of hair loss by practicing damaging hair 
styling techniques like braids, chemical relaxing, and wearing weaves.  
Out of 5,594 black women who were part of the study and survey, almost 50% reported hair loss 
on the crown of their head and 81.4% of those women never sought any kind of help from 
a physician or dermatologist. 

Janeise Alexander, owner of J’Das Studio For Hair in Oakland, CA says many clients of hers 
experience hair follicle trauma. “Tension from braids and twists can and does cause permanent 
follicle damage, especially to the lanugo (baby) hair around the perimeter of the head.” 
She adds, “Chemicals such as relaxers and colors can also cause damage if the service isn’t 
administered properly. Applying protection cream to the lanugo hair and scalp is a Must. 
Also Neutralization and plenty of rinsing will help to remove all traces of the chemical.” 

What to do? How do we end the cycle?

We see the problem and we know it is not getting addressed by the individuals suffering from it, 
so what should be done? Of course, education is always the first out of the gate for answers as 
it is obvious many of the Black women dealing with hair loss are not getting help. Sure, we see 
videos here and there discussing some women going to salons and getting help but usually it is 
just covering up the problem. 

These women need real solutions and while it makes sense to seek out a hairstylists, 
seeking medical help first ensure you know exactly what the problem is so you can properly address and rectify.  
Seek help from a Dermatologist, Trichologist, or physician Suffering in silence will not solve the problem 
nor will it help. Covering the hair loss or thinning hair up with wigs, weaves, or braids is not 
the answer either. Often that can compound the problem and make already damaged hair worse or can
even negatively affect the scalp to the point of irreversible hair loss.  

OVER 46 MILLION WOMEN IN AMERICAN ARE AFFECTED BY HAIR LOSS 
& WE CAN EXPECT THAT NUMBER TO RISE 

Seeking medical help from a dermatologist, trichologist or a physician 
can help determine scalp damage or illnesses that may be causing hair loss. 

They can also get you back on track to healthy hair and scalp.  

Stop damaging your hair These styles that are causing tension 
need to be stopped and I consulted with celebrity hairstylist and 
ambassador for Women’s ROGAINE®, Jill Crosby on hair loss.  

Crosby says, “if you wear styles that require a lot of tension to achieve the looks such as
tight braids, twists, weaves, or knots then hair loss due to tension is often very prevalent, 
especially in key areas such as hair line and nape—these styles can also contribute to added
 loss for someone who is already experiencing thinning or loss due to hereditary hair loss.” 

She adds, “putting tension on the papilla (hair root) over time can cause loss, sometimes 
permanent. So if you’re a woman who has thinning hair, take into consideration how much 
tension to use when creating the look you want. 
Taking it easy in this way can allow for hair to regrow.” 

Know you are not alone nor need to be ashamed This is what we need to be talking about more 
as black women are feeling alienated. These problems are not being addressed as often as 
they should with real experts explaining what the problems are and how to fix them. 
Most women will suffer some form of hair loss or hairs thinning in their lifetime 
but black women are finding it through hair styling choices which are detrimental to their 
hair and scalp.  5 NATURAL BEAUTY OILS TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS 

You are not alone nor should you feel ashamed 
but rather, empowered with the information on what is going on and how to fix it. 
We can stop this cycle by knowing there are options for styles and treatments.

Are you suffering hair thinning or hair loss and how have you tried to fix it?
