I had a sewn-in weave and my braids were too tight. Now I have problems with my edges thinning and I am wearing wigs to cover them up. What can I do to get the hair to come back in those areas? 

This condition is known as Traction Alopecia. With persistent, tightly pulled hair, the inflamed follicles will progressively decrease in size and no longer produce the typical long and coarse hair strands. Instead, thinner, weaker, shorter hair is generated. The follicle may eventually shut down, and the scalp pore closes, becoming a smooth surface. Once the follicle has become inactive, hair may not re-grow. To get a better analysis, see a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss to discuss your options.
