Alopecia: My 4 Month Results Using a Hair Masque
After months of unknowingly using an ointment that had Propylene Glycol (I’m allergic to it) in it, my hair had reached its worst point in the history of my living with alopecia.
I had written at the end of 3 months( http://www.hautecurvywoman.com/7/post/2016/06/alopecia-and-my-2-month-treatment-that-is-working.html/) that I had watched a Youtube on Coconut Oil Hair Therapy for hair growth and hair renewal.
I was amazed how much hair had grown back and how much length I had gotten.
The Youtuber gave out this recipe:
Here’s the Recipe:
1.) Coconut oil 16 TSP
2.) Apple Cider Vinegar 4 TSP
3.) Almond Oil 8 TSP
4.) 1 Whole orange
I have used it at least 2X a week from March 3, 2016 to the present time.
Here is the state of my hair at the beginning of this, about 4 months ago:
I finally went for a haircut last week just because there was so much length now and I thought it was putting too much pressure on my remaining hair.
You have to understand how difficult it is for someone with alopecia to go to a salon. It’s not easy.
Thus, I didn’t take any time into consideration, just called up a place close to my home and got in to see them that day. Actually within a 1/2 hour.
Usually, I ask for someone really experienced because my hair is VERY difficult to cut as you can imagine.
They told me that Gina would be cutting my hair. She was just so adorable with great hair, of course.
I walked in and began my litany of requirements because I know what works and what doesn’t work for me; Keep bangs long, hair must not have layers, don’t wash first (it doesn’t lay right then) my face is too fat for regular ‘bob’……and on and on and on.
She said “don’t worry, you’re going to look great”.
I just put it in her hands and we talked and she was just soooo sweet and when she was done, it was freaking fabulous!
Never had I had a haircut like that in my life.
Here is the latest pic of my hair coming back on top at the 4 month mark”.
Here is my new haircut last week, July 21, 2016 by Gina:
It’s pretty amazing!
She did such a great job and put me at ease and all I can do is hope she’ll be here forever because I know that no one could ever cut my hair like this again.
I have tried to tell people on alopecia boards about what had worked for me and I really wasn’t met with any interest. I have nothing to gain by sharing what has worked for me, yet people seemed really skeptical.
What would I have to gain by writing what has worked for me? I’ve spent 1000’s of dollars on trying anything that would work only to find out that this $5.00 treatment a week brought my hair back.
Anyway, all my thanks to Gina, not just for the haircut, but for just being an absolute doll!
Gina, I hope that big boot is gone soon!
