View Full Version : Thinking Of Getting Box Braids

Hi all I was planning on going tomorrow to get box braids with human hair at a braiding salon. I di have alopecia on the top of my head and a little at the nape of my neck. I know that my alopecia comes from a disorder that I have called PCOS(polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).

I was just wondering do you think the braids would make the alopecia worse?

If they are braided too small and too tightly, yes. They will put more stress on your already fragile hair.
