Thinning Hair and Pink Scalp

The occurrence of thinning hair with pink scalp is often an indication of irritation, inflammation or the scalp disease. Dermatitis, scalp psoriasis and a variety of scalp stresses such as Traction Alopecia can produce redness, sores and increased sebum that can lead to an inflamed scalp and thinning hair and are common pink scalp causes. Inflammation of the scalp can lead to problems like hair loss, sores or infection.

Though dermatitis is most often associated with excess sebum (hair oils produced by the sebaceous glands), symptoms of dermatitis - flaking, itchy and oily scalp - can produce irritation, harbor bacteria and lead to thinning hair.

Traction Alopecia is a condition resulting from tight or prolonged pressure and "pulling" on the follicles. This is often characterized by thinning hair around the temples of African Americans due to tight braiding and weaving. It can also be seen in men and women who wear tightly held ponytails as well.
