Putting your hair back into a bun sounds pretty harmless, but for some it may be responsible for some pretty scary and disastrous things…

Former dancer Diva Hollands is warning the public about the dangers and consequences of wearing your hair in a tight bun consistently.  

Diva herself wore her hair in a bun for years, and this caused her hairline to recede, and she began losing hair at the age of 13.

Diva suffered from years of bullying following the hair loss and even refused to allow her fiancé to see her hair tied up.

What Diva was suffering from what is called traction alopecia, which is the loss of hair as a result of persistent gentle pulling on the roots over many hours of a day. This results in bald spots, hair loss and receding hairlines.

Diva eventually underwent surgery for a follicular unit transplant to help fix the alopecia.

As any hairstyles that pull put you at risk, you may want to avoid the following styles as well:

- Pony Tails

- Braids

- Man Buns

Who knew that how you style your hair could be such serious stuff!
