Traction Alopecia Can Lead to Scarring NYC New York NY

 I would first recommend discontinuing the brading-- I still still a number of hair follicle units in your photo (though difficult from that one photo to assess) and you may find many of the hairs grow back with sufficient time without braiding.  Unfortunately, scarring may have occurred, which is quite common with traction alopecia.  In this case, a  surgical treatment, such as

hair transplant, would be necessary.  No topical agents will cause regrowth in an area of scarring hair loss.
