Question: Hello Shuna, Your description of Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia seems to fit my scalp condition. I’ve had this for about two years, possibly three. My eyebrows are almost non-existent, so on Saturday, had a session of micro-pigmentation which has given me amazing semi-permanent eyebrows. Beforehand, the person who did it pointed out the redness and…
My 17 year old daughter is losing hair everyday and it’s been going on for few months now. We really do not know what else we can do as her hair is visibly thinning and we don’t know how to stop her from going bald.
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!
Since my 2nd pregnancy 14 months ago my hair loss has been very bad. The doctors said I should give it time when it started falling out and that a loss was normal. As it is continuing I am now getting concerned. Can you help?
For the last few years I have had problems with a balding patch at the back towards the top of my head. I have been taking tablets from boots called hair skin and nail tablets, they have helped a little bit but now don’t seem to be doing anything.
No never! I have no idea why this misconception exists. If you have bleach applied to your hair and it causes damage (also incorrectly cared for following) it could cause breakage (perceived as hair loss often) or in a very small cases a burn to the scalp.
Visitor’s Question: Hello, I was told I had Alopecia about 2 years ago now, hair has fallen out and come back on my head including my eyelashes and eyebrows, I wasn’t offered a treatment or support and I was just wondering if there was anything you could suggest? Thanks Asked by Miss X from Littlehampton,…
No, there is no external cause of hair loss. With the exception of hair that is out of condition or broken due to over processing or excessive heat- which is not strictly falling out, but many patients perceive the hairs in the brush/wash to have fallen out.
Doctor may spend time questioning you about your diet and supplement history, examine your hair (to check the rate of loss) and arrange a blood test.
No, absolutely not! From a Trichologist point of view, daily washing is most beneficial for the health of your scalp to create the very best environment for hair growth. In health, human scalp hair should grow 2.5cm per month.
