    I would NEVER tell anyone this,
    But looking at those pictures I strongly belive your sister needs to BC and leave those relaxers alone FOR GOOD

    Screeech! I think the Reconstructor 2x weekly might be a bit too much and could lead to hard/brittle hair, not what she needs right now at all

    I believe with that once you start using rogaine, you have to keep using it or else the hair will fall out again:ohwell:

    I would advise her to just shave it all off and start fresh.

    ^^^ I totally agree. I see no reason to hold on to the little bit of hair she has. It's so damaged. I would go to the doctor first, so they can see the bald spot. Then shave it clean and wig up till it grows in.

    Yeah I would agree with that. I have alopecia too and have pictures of my own hair in worst state than that picture above and when it reaches that bad, I would just always shave it all off and start over because trying to hide it made me too self conscious. Also have a dermatologist do a scalp test and blood work on you/her.

    Thanks everyone. I dont think shes ready to shave it clean... she doesnt feel 100% comfortable with my help anyway. I can tell she feels insecrue about it. It it were up to me OF COURSE i would definately shave it, and wear a nice wig. Maybe after a couple months. :perplexed

    Im also thinkin a dermatogolist appointment would be better sooner than later now.

    To be honest im really scared that i would be able to help her save it:crying3:
