Black Women and ALopecia


ALOPECIA, which is the complete or partial loss of hair. Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCC Alopecia) is the most common type of scarring alopecia found in African-American women that usually begins at the central scalp, gets increasingly worse and is ultimately permanent. Early research indicates that an estimated 15 to 19 percent of all African-American women in the U.S. – more than 36.6 million women have a history of hair loss, and more than half (51 percent) are concerned with thinning hair/hair loss as a top hair care problem.

Although CCC Alopecia affects so many women of color, little research exists on the disease and its causes, and no effective treatments have been identified to help with this disfiguring hair loss. While various hair grooming techniques such as the use of hot combs and chemical relaxers have been blamed for this condition, the link has never been proven.
