I have Afro type 4c hair with frontal crown thinning and this is also causing my natural hair to knot. I think I may need to wear a wig but would prefer not to as I am so embarrassed about my appearance!
I am really worried about this as it’s very hard to cover my patches now. The thinning is Long standing and gradually getting worse.
My hairdresser said I must get professional advice from a Trichologist as my GP didn’t help.
Asked by Mrs C (52 years old)
Dear Mrs X,
Thank you for your inquiry.
I have extensive experience with consulting patients with your hair type and all forms of Afro hair.
In your consultation, I would be interested to hear full details of all relaxers, weaves, corn rows, and permanently applied extensions you’ve had/have. Also about any oils, you use on your hair and scalp and your routine for conditioning and any other oil based products used.
In addition, I will ask you about your family history, diet, medications taken (including alternative ones).
I work Monday to Saturday and look forward to helping you with your concerns.
