I Think My Hair Is Growing Back

I used to have beautiful hair. Over the past year and a half I have been under a lot of stress. last summer i noticed two bald spots in my hair. they were the size of silver dollars. i went to a place where they said i had androgenic alopecia (they weren’t doctors) and now i wear a hair piece in my hair. it is hot, uncomfortable, and i can’t help but feel self concious. it’s also expensive, and i’m only 25 and can barely afford it. i’m a single mom.

i’ve worn the hair piece for about 5 months.

lately i’ve noticed that my hair has been growing faster, and my mother looked within my hair piece and says my hair may be growing back (my stress level has diminished quite a bit)

i was wondering (besides appearance) if there would be signs that this conditon is going away.

will my head be a little itchy, will i feel stubble? will the hair grow in and be thinner from the scalp at first (not like a telogen hair) and then grow in thicker? what kinds of things do you recomend I do to make my hair grow back, because i can’t live without hair anymore, and i’m not rich, and can’t afford medical procedures or cosmetic ones.

should i get a b12 shot, or purchase the ssublingual pill?

please help. i want to be normal and pretty again.

If you feel stubble, the you can assume that the hair is probably growing back. Hair cycles every 3-7 months (approximately) so if the hair loss is short term, you may see it reverse in that time frame. Wearing hair systems will cause traction alopecia and I would advise you against this, and suggest that you just style around your area of loss, if possible.

There are many medical conditions that need to be evaluated, so consider seeing a doctor and reviewing the Female Hair Loss category.

  3. Joel and Rob, i had started with 2 patches on my head and several on my chin and cheeks. at first nothing grew, then white hairs came in.. now there are more and more white hairs with a few growing in normal color (dark brown for me) and it seems as if the rest are starting to do so as well.

  4. hi,
    Tamarra, i would love to chat with you. our son is 12, he has had beautiful long dreads for his entire life. his hair has been cut 2 times. thats it.
    last year his doctor gave hime clonidine and now he has alopecia areata. we use dr miracle and i have actually found a new product which is similar but i think is better: groganics, dht blocker system. reasonablhy priced and works great, we all use it.
    i would love to chat with you and any one who can make positive recommendations.

  5. I have notice hair loss at the front of my head for 3 years due to high levels of stress and now the front has received about an inch and a half back. However, for the past 2 months I have changed my dieting to eating more vegetables (broccoli, garlic, onions, and drinking plenty of water at least 1.37 liters a day). Also, consuming such health tonics like vinegar, lemon juice and soy souse helps flush out the system. I am 32 male and instead of taking an adult vitamin I have changed to Flinestones multi-vitamin I take two in the morning with a small glass of orange juice. Sense have been taking the vitamins I have notice a great increase in hair growth. Exercising everyday is important plus getting more sleep too. I now go to bed at 9:30 pm and wake up at 6:00 am to exercise. So change your life style and you will see results. It is also important to learn yoga or tai chi or something that can help you control your stress levels which are the culprit to your hair loss. Thank you
