There is a wonderful ministry called “Love a Child” which has an orphange in the country of Haiti. The owner/manager of the orphanage is struggling to help several of her African American orphan girls who are suddenly suffering from hair loss. She has pictures of the girls on her site at loveachild.com
From reading various information on your website and others it seems the only options are:
1. Stop tight hair braids (but it’s too late now)
2. Costly hair implants
Any suggestions or advice you might have to help these precious children would be greatly appreciated.
From the photos in the link you provided, it seems the girls on the site have traction alopecia from wearing tight hair braids for long periods of time. Unfortunately, traction alopecia is permanent and there are no good treatment options. Hair transplantation surgery may help, but it cannot replace all the hair that was lost as even with a hair transplant, the supply of hair may exceed the demand for hair in the balding area.
