hi. right now, i have a perm from curly to straight. i am 13 yrs old girl and if would be cery nice of you if you would pleeeease help me. i went on a winter vacation with my family for 3 days. the second day i went to the pool with out a cap. after a while i went up to my hotel room by myself, then i blew dry my hair. after the vacation was over i went home to wash the chlorine out of my hair which were V05 conditioner and shampoo. after i washed it, i blew dry my hair some more. later in about a few weeks, every time i comb my hair a whole chunk of hair came out every single day for 3 weeks. it came from the back of my head. i just noticed when my hair dresser said it looked like a short boys hair cut and i started to cry for weeks. i did not want to go out in puplic expecially in school where my friends had good looking then i did. i felt jealous and lonley because a few had longer hair than me, straight with out a perm. and i don’t really want to show my natural hair because it’s crazy looking. so if you would pleeeeease help to grow it back faster i’ll feel much better again and take better care of a perm. thank you so much
You sound very emotional, and that is understandable seeing as how you are a young teenager. When my daughter was your age, I saw these range of emotions firsthand. Please know that losing hair is normal (average person loses about 100-150 hairs per day) so that if you are seeing such numbers of hairs being lost, you are just seeing something that you may not have noticed before. If you are healthy and have no medical problems, then there is no reason for significant hair loss. First, you need to talk with your parents and tell them what you are experiencing. Then they may take you to a good dermatologist who can evaluate your hair to find out if the loss you are experiencing is above the normal daily loss for an adult. The best advice I can give you is to reach out and ask those who love you to help you through this experience.
