I just got my first steroid shot yesterday, and my dermatologist said that my hair may start to grow back in 4 to six weeks. I really can't wait that long. I have told only my closest friend that I have AA, but I still feel like everyone is staring at me when I walk through the halls at school. I still have tons of hair, but it sheds so much. I don't know what to do. I want to talk to my mom about shaving, but I think I should wait until my second appointment. I need some advice on what to do.
