I have had hair loss since infancy. The hair grows lovely for months at a time and then becomes dry and brittle and falls out. I have seen many doctors and not one has ever taken a hair sample, they always give topical steroids that never work. I am tired of spending time and money with RX who don't seem concerned with a black woman who is losing her hair. I have been told that the cause was anything from hy hairstyle to the wig I was wearing to hide the baldness. I was also told that I must wash my hair several times a week in order to stop it from falling out. That made my scalp sore and dry. Are there any decent doctors in the Carolinas who will take me seriously?
