What type of hairloss do I have?

Posted on October 6, 2010 at 5:27pm 4 Comments

He everyone, I have had hairloss for a while now but I still don't know what I truely have. I just wanted to see what you all thought. I had very very thick hair before all of this. I started to lose it in clumps all over my scalp and I had 1 bald spot when it first started. Then the bald spot grew back but my hair continued to shed from all over. It just seems much much thinner then it did. About 9 after the hair started my eyelashes, nose hairs, vellus hairs , well hair from all over started… Continue

Breast implants and hairloss

Posted on September 30, 2010 at 1:29pm 12 Comments

I was wondering if anyone here developed alopecia after they got breast implants? I have had what my doctors says is alopecia working on three years now. I noticed that my hair loss started about 3 to 4 months after I got my breast implants. Then it stopped. It started back about 5 months after that then stopped again. This continued for about a year then it started to fall out more then not. I have read some things saying that breast implants can sometimes cause hairloss. Does anyone else… Continue

Hey Erin ....the wig that im wearing in most of my photos is an Allegria Virgin Russian Hair wig.... from Allegria fin wigs in was a little over $3,000 I also have 2 other wigs ( yaffa wigs)...i bought a they were alot cheaper....and still nice.. i find that when or if ordering wigs ...buying them without earpeices make them alot more comfortable... and you can put the wigs up in a ponytail easier. Sometimes i add longer extenstions in my wigs to add a little more lengh...i just play around with it....good luck with your quest for a new wig..... my "dream wig" would be a blonde wig form "design by Flora" NY... there supposed to be the best... she has amazing reviews... oh

Hey Erin! I have been good, some days are harder than others. I have lost a majority of my eyelashes and eyebrows within the past few months as well. I am waiting for a new wig to come that I ordered. Still trying to find the perfect wig, which I worry will never happen. This wig you see in my picture is a little too dark for me and too shiny at times. It was $2800 too even being synthetic because you can use heat up to 400 degrees and style it so it works really well. Did you find a place near by? Hope you are doing well and keep in touch!

Hi Erin. I still haven't accepted it. And I've had it since I was 18. I went bald right away and wore a wig for 5 yrs. Then it all came back for a bit and then for the last 15 yrs I've just dealt with bald spots. Sometimes big enough to wear hair pieces, but never all like I'm at right now. It all fell out in April of this year. I'm definitely struggling. Sometimes I do think.."what the hell's the BIG freakin deal??!!" And other times it is "Oh my gaaaad how do I go on like this and try to love myself".

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about the Keto shampoo. You have helped me out more than you know! It feels like something is eating at my scalp causing severe itching and pain. I read on the internet that Keto is being considered as a treatment to reverse hairloss. Your advice really calmed me down. I think I will be trying it in the next few days. I will keep you posted! Thanks sweetie...

i have losing my hair for more than a year, but if your analysis are ok, it looks like areta diffusa to me if you are losing the rest of your body hair as well, i only lose the hair on my scapl, and maybe a littler more eyebrows but nothing anormal....although i got very tiny spots in my scalp which there are not regeneration so maybe i got areata, you dont have any spot?.
maybe you can chage your diet to try, i am ditching coca cola light because product light have some poison (espartamo in spanish) and gluten....and it seems to get better, but i am not sure yet

I too have severe burning and scalp pain. I was given the Ketoconazole shampoo but am terrified to use it because I don't want to damage the hair I have left. Have you used it? Did it make your hair break or fall out?

My sheds have become a lot lighter the past week or so. I lose maybe 100 a day but it varies so much. Some days are a lot worse but I try not to count or look. On the days when my scalp itches the most I also lose the most hair. I am ALWAYS stressed due to eating disorder and panic attacks. I am just waiting for the next shed... Hang in there darling!
