I am a black woman age 27. Seven years ago I had thick black hair. I used chemical products on my hair and got my hair styled by various hair dressers. Fine bumps developed in the back of my head, I attended a doctor and I was told that there were keloids. About a year after I conceive and gave birth to my only daughter that was in 1999. I relaxed my hair again and this time I am not sure if it is as a result of the keloid but my hair started thinning at the front and it is getting worse. I try to keep my hair up to hide the bald spots and this has affected my self esteem some what. Can this problem be rectified. Can my hair grow back or can I have hair transplant to make it look normal again?
This is a very complex problem that would require an examination of your scalp. Without seeing you, I would be loathe to suggest what to do. See a good dermatologist first, then see if he/she recommends another expert. Bald areas in the scalp are easily treated provided that there are no disease contra-indications for transplantation. Keloids and a variety of diseases that cause Alopecia need to be evaluated.
