    Default Traction alopecia. help!!

    Two weeks ago I was involved in a fight where the guy pulled some hair at the center of my hairline. A few days before these i noticed a lot of new hairs growing in that area. Is it possible that the pulled hairs are being replaced so fast? or those new hairs are not the pulled ones?

    Hello,

    A one time event does not cause traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is caused by repeatedly pulling hair out over time.

    Yes it is possible those hairs are starting to grow back already.
