The researchers who conducted the study said that this finally explain the paradoxical effects of testosterone on androgenic alopecia (AGA). The new theorys unparallelled ability to explain even the details of the hair loss process and the formation of the pattern in AGA is apparent, said Dr Emin Tuncay Ustuner, a plastic surgeon in Ankara, Turkey. Ustuners Gravity Theory seeks to reconcile some puzzling observations related to the development and progression of AGA. Its believed that balding areas of the scalp show an increase in a form of testosterone called dihydrotestosteron (DHT).

It seems that Rihanna has joined a long list of celebrities including Naomi Campbell , Kim Kardashian , and more paying the price for continuous wear of heavy weaves and wigs. In fact, the condition is much worse than just damaged hair. According to Karelina, RiRi displays signs of suffering from a medical condition known as traction alopecia. PHOTOS: Rihanna Parties Until Dawn Traction alopecia is caused by hair being pulled tightly, stretching hair follicles out and causing the attached hair to break and fall out , Karelina explains. Continuous use of heavy wigs, glued hair extensions, tight weaves and braids eventually causes such serious damage to follicles to the extent that hair fails to grow at all. The condition usually affects the area at the hairline above the forehead or on the sides, she says, which is where Rihanna appears to have experienced hair loss. When hair extensions are applied properly, they are completely safe and can give amazing results, the extensions expert says.
