A member asked:
when hair is tugged, will the strength of the hair to the follicle weaken or will it re-strengthen, meaning will it fall out faster?

It'll grow back: Hair that has tension frequently falls out because of the pure stress on the hair bulb within the follicle. That hair may fall out, but the follicle itself isn't damaged. When a new hair grows in the same follicle it will not be any weaker than if it had never been under tension. If the hair does not grow back or continues to thin there may be another issue and it should be seen by a doctor.
