In brief: Tarction alopecia

First thing you do is leave your hair open or tie very loosely.
If your hair follicles have not been damaged permanently, your hair will eventually grow back.

First change hair style and see doctor for trial of injections of dilute steroids which amy allow regrowth of roots that are still viable.
