    I think it's hard for many of us to accept. People say "It's because you wear braids or wear your hair back or you're pulling your edges...". But my hair is thinking all over. It's just ore apparent around the edges.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh ... so this forum was just started a couple of weeks ago? Thank goodness!! I know I haven't been over on this side of the board lately, but I was beginning to wonder how I could miss an entire forum about hair loss. Now I see Bev or one of the mods just moved over all hair loss threads to this new forum. Glad to see I'm not going crazy.

    This is definitely a welcome addition to the board. :yep:

    This is great! I've been looking into a number of non surgical ways to fix hair loss and there are so many great studies such as the one with dermarolling

    @Kalia1 - you are so welcome. Hopefully as more members see the forum and more threads relating to hair loss are placed in the forum, it will continue to develop and expand.

    I think my henna treatments cause my edges to break off. Anyone else experience this?

    Hey ladies! Nobody really comes here, but that’s ok. I have experienced some hair loss in my crown area. There are two causes, one from a product and the other is from stress. I have had hair loss in this area before.
    I just recently noticed it. So I will use a castor oil blend I got from the BSS store. I will add some essential oils to it. Also, i’m making changes to my diet and incorporating a lot of healthy foods, vegan protein shakes, water, carrot juice, and I shampoo my hair and scalp twice a week. I really believe keeping the scalp clean, getting rid of buildup promotes hair growth. Yes shampoos are suppose to strip oils, buildup, dirt, sweat, and salt from the hair and scalp. You smooth your cuticle and condition it with a conditioner. Shampoo lifts, conditioner closes and smooths down.
    Seems like hair is already starting to sprout up. I don’t plan to relax, or heat style for the rest of this year anyway.
    My hair suffered some trauma, so now I’m keeping my Reggie very simple. I have done enough with the protein, so I will work on moisturization. I have several leave-in sprays that have protein in them, so I will still get the protein I need.

    My hair loss was directly related to age, low iron and stress. It’s also white and gray which caused it to be brittle. I had two iron transfusions in November 2017. My Ferritin levels went up by the hundreds. My hair is thickening. I have thinning to the crown and a few spots in the front. It’s 12/31/2017. I am going to use a simple routine and take hair growth vitamins and also do daily massages. In the past I have had PRP injections to my scalp. This year is going to be the year of a careful and simple routine.
    Happy 2018 to all of us and don’t lose hope.
