Ask the Experts: The Real Reason Your Hair Is Falling Out
It's no secret that sistas love rocking every hairstyle under the sun. But while our ever-changing tresses allow us to rock versatile 'dos, weaves, chemical processing and too-tight hairstyles are also causing premature hair loss at alarming rates. We sat down with Dr. Kari Williams, an expert in the study of hair and scalp disorders, to discover key causes of hair loss and breakage.
Back to back weaves are rarely good for the hair, says Dr. Williams. “A lot of times you’ll see women take down a weave and go right back into another one without truly assessing the health of the scalp or hairline. It’s not until your second or third time getting the weave taken out that you will notice your hair is gone and by then, it’s too late.” It’s imperative that your stylist does a thorough assessment of your hair and scalp before putting extensions back in.
