I am a 22 year old African American female. I very curly, short, and extremely dry frizzy hair. Due to experimenting with different hairstyles I have managed to pull out some of my hair from the root and now I have bald spots all over my head, which i have fortunately managed to hide with my other hair. I have tried many produts to see if I could regain the hair lost in these particular areas, but nothing has worked thus far. My hair is also particularly thin around my forhead and basicly non-existent around the temples/edges of my head. I want my hair to be longer, thicker, more healthy all while still looking natural and not too “fake” What would be the best hair procedure for me to opt in my particular case and what are the estimated costs for this/these procedure(s)?
Note: Just so that you know the extent of my hair damage. It is so bad that I have had to resort to wearing hair weaves, wigs, and other hair pieces.
I would want to see you before rendering an opinion. Your history is one I hear with great frequency, but the cause of the hair loss needs to be determined before making any plan to fix it. Different diagnoses would include traction alopecia and a variety of autoimmune alopecias. You need to be careful with wigs, because they can induce traction alopecia, compounding your problem. If you are in the California or New York areas, you can meet with an NHI affliated doctor. If not, visit ISHRS.org to find a doctor specializing hair restoration in your area. Or you can find a local qualified Dermatologist to get the diagnosis you need.
