Figure 6:(a) Trichoscopy of trichotillomania shows broken hairs with different length (yellow arrows), black dots (red arrows) and “burnt match stick” hairs (blue arrows). (b) Trichoscopy of trichotillomania shows flame hairs (yellow arrows), black dots (red arrows), and trichoptilosis (blue arrows). Note the crude, irregular, and flamboyant nature of black dots. (c) Trichoscopy of trichotillomania shows tulip hairs (arrows) and hair powder (stars) in the interfollicular area. Note the reduced hair density and black dots. (d) Trichoscopy of trichotillomania shows coiled hairs that are contracted and attached to the scalp (yellow arrows) with question mark hairs (red arrow) and hook hairs (blue arrows). Note the perifollicular hemorrhages (green arrow). (e) Trichoscopy of trichotillomania shows mace hair (yellow arrow) with multiple broken hairs and white dots. (f) Trichoscopy of tinea capitis shows comma hairs (yellow arrows), broken hairs (red arrows), and “i” hairs (blue arrows). Note the milder characteristics of black dots (green arrows). (g) Trichoscopy of tinea capitis reveals multiple corkscrew hairs (yellow arrows) which are circled inward with few comma hairs (red arrow). Note the uniform pigmentation all along the shaft. (h) Trichoscopy of tinea capitis shows multiple Morse code-like hairs (yellow arrows), perifollicular scales (red arrows), and perifollicular hemorrhages (blue arrows). Brownish discoloration is well appreciated in majority of the Morse code-like hairs. (i) Trichoscopy of tinea capitis reveals multiple zigzag hairs (red arrows) and bent hairs (blue arrows). Few Morse code-like hairs (green arrows) are noted
