    I will admit that at one timeI was the special ed idiot that applied relaxer to the scalp, relaxed every month, relaxed previously relaxed hair, colored it the same day I relaxed, turned the blow dryer on high and after all that hit it with the hot curlers. Not good hair care at all.

    Hey, I just visited her office last week. Got an appointment for Tat Removal. Pretty nice office, staff and decent prices.

    Anyway, I also just got diagnosed with Alopecia by another Doctor. I have balding spots in different areas of my hair that I have been trying to grow back for almost two years. My Derm said that mine seems to be caused by post-partum hair loss since I had my daughter almost two years ago and my hair had been fine before than as well as in good shape while I was pregnant. I have been natural for 3 years so I know it's not from heat or chemical damage.

    So my Derm gave me a topical steroid like prescription and I have to get scalp injections in the balding areas. I am actually excited to get this done and get my hair back. But I do thank GOD mine is not as bad as those pictures posted. :ohwell:

    My mother suffers from female pattern baldness. It started with her hair thinning at the crown, like in the first picture. I've since discovered my hair is thinning there too. I pray mine doesn't progress more than this. If it does, I will have to resort to shaving my head.

    Back home at last. Pounding the pavement in a few
    I have seen numbers of women where there nape/sideburns/edges or all three was sparse with a few stray hairs here and there. I try not to stare.

    so true. you just made me realize all the bad things i've done to my hair as well over the years as it slowly started to deteriorate. now that i have a low hairstyle, i see thin areas in my scalp. i have two on both sides around my hairline. now i'm just glad i started fresh and anew!
