Can dreads cause balding?

A little internet research popped up the following info: Though seemingly more associated with supertight cornrows and weaves, there is a condition called ‘traction alopecia’ which is caused by massive tension on the hair follicles of the scalp (and beards too, apparently. Weird!) it seems to predominantly target young women, and it’s reversible in initial stages. We can honestly say as stylists working in this field for many years, we have never seen a case of traction alopecia related to dreadlocks in the Lock Shop. Here’s the thing though – if you are already starting to thin out, keep in mind that your locks will be holding on to every hair you’d normally shed. They’re going to get heavier and heavier, and eventually your root may become too weak to support the mature lock.
