Hello, I am 20 years old, and I now notice that my frontal area is starting to thin a little bit. But by everyone else who looks at me, they wouldnt even be able to tell that I am losing hair. So I have been taking Propecia in the mean while to halt or slow down the hair loss, until I am old enough to get a transplant. And my father had a hair transplant.
I just want to know, since I work as a actor for commercials and a model, the people who style my hair, they tend to use flat irons(hair straightener) and blow dryers at high heat in where I have the donor area. Because after 6 months of them using the blow dryer and flat iron on me constantly, I decided to have them stop using it and it has been 3 months eversince I stopped. Will this damage and reduce the number of hairs or grafts or FU’s that are transferable or are they safe to use?
Sounds like you really need a good doctor to take charge of your situation. This site is riddled with stories, questions, and inquiries about potions/lotions for hair loss. You need to be smart about decisions going forward. Don’t be foolish with your hair; take command by bringing in a good doctor as a partner for your hair loss problem.
To answer your question — yes, flat irons may damage hair and blow dryers which are too hot can also damage the hair that is there.
