Readers Question - Reversing Damaged Hair??

Email Question from Victoria- 

"I just did the big chop after a month's transition. My hair is pretty short so I am now wearing braids. I decided to go natural after a major destruction of my front hair after wearing weaves and relaxing my hair continuously.  It really did damage so i decided to leave the world of perms and weaves. One major problem that really bothers me is my front hair. It has never grown after the damages of the weaves. I have taken almost everything to help with the blood circulation but nothing has helped. I take multivitamins with iron, I apply serums and healing oils , and I don't plait it. now that everyone is noticing it never ending occurrence, it really makes me feel sad and I am disappointed in it!"

What Victoria has already tried -
"I have used essential oils like peppermint( I have a just started using it) and caster oil. I have also used healing oil by doctor miracle and a fertilizing serum by organics.  The boldness has been there for exactly one year now. I love hair but this boldness is driving me crazy and I really need your advise what to do!  Thank you! ~ Victoria, UK"

  1. It does take a while to see any changes. I suggest continue using castor oil and massaging your scalp. Have you tried seeing a dermatologist?

  2. I agree, it will take some time for your hairline to heal. I was having the same issue, but my hairline is showing signs of recovery and regrowth 15 months post relaxer and 7 months post BC. Hang in there, and continue to use natural remedies.

  3. I have had the same problem for years and recently tried the nioxin line of products. I found them to be the most effective so far. I'm using the follicle booster followed by the scalp treatment. Baby hairs sprouted all over my bald patches within a week.

  4. See a dermatologist who can determine whether your alopecia is permanent or treatable. All of these BSS products are a waste of your money. You need a professional opinion.
