Hair styling habits can lead to serious hair and scalp diseases for some African Americans. According to dermatologists proper care of the hair and scalp can help prevent certain diseases like seborrheic dermatitis and alopecia. Some dermatologists are encourage they’re fellow peers practice more sensitivity to the hair and scalp issues that African Americans struggle with.
Little research has been done in regards to the causes of hair and scalp diseases in African Americans. Understanding the unique physiological characteristics of the textures of African hair will help dermatologists prescribe proper treatments. African American hair tends to grow slower and has lower hair density in comparison to other ethnic groups and that is just one difference that can help dermatologists properly assess the needs of their African American clients.
African American women tend to shampoo their hair less than women in other ethnic groups and nearly 80 percent of them use chemical relaxers to maintain their hair. The frequent use of blow dryers and other heat based styling tools in conjunction with popular hairstyles like weaves and braids, add stress to hair and help contribute to scalp issues like alopecia.
Hair loss is among the top five reasons why African American patients visit their dermatologist. Proper grooming instructions and treatments can help alleviate the issues that these patients face.
