Fragile Tension

But hipster ‘man buns’ can lead to permanent hair fragile Tension, experts have warned. Scraping hair into a top-knot can cause a condition called traction alopecia, where bald patches appear – usually around the forehead and temples. If the roots are pulled at over a long period of time, they become damaged – and hair will cease to grow. This week, Mississippi dermatologist Sabra Sullivan spoke out about the increasing number of men she is seeing with the condition.

Men who tie their hair back into so-called man buns – such as actors Jared Leto and Game of Thrones’ Paul Kaye – risk permanent hair loss, experts say. She told MIC: ‘Traction alopecia in men is becoming really, really common. I see it probably once or twice a week. They’re putting traction on the hair follicles that the hair is not really meant to take. She added: ‘Unfortunately, once the hair follicle is damaged, it doesn’t grow back.

Leading hair transplant surgeon Dr Bessam Farjo agreed that pulling hair into a tight bun can lead to bald patches. Why do our eyes twitch when we’re tired? Over time, you lose hair along the hair line and down the sides of the face. The problem is if hair is tightly scraped back, all the time, every day, it puts long-term stress on the hair.
