  • Help help help!!!

    So I did the big chop and my hair began growing back lovely, I've gotten to about an inch on the top of my head, the back and sides are still slow to grow. I've been using Shea butter products which seem to dry it out also.. I switched to as I am products and not sure if it's a coincidence but I now have a bald spot on the crown of my hair and back sides of my head.
    I've always struggled with growing my hair and decided to cut it and start over... But it's still not working out.anither thing is my scalp tends to hurt and when that happens I feel like it sheds more..
    Has anyone been through this. I read somewhere about scalded scalp but have no idea what that means. I'm now wondering if it's alooecia..
    I've seen a dermatologist in the past, but they are all Caucasian with no experience with black individuals hair .. Any idea would be appreciated.. I live in upstate NY where it's prodominantly cold, so that makes it worst..

    Hmm, Anatomy is the same in all races, so a medical expert from any ethnic background should be able to help. Have you tried changing up your product? It could mean that you reacted to a substance in the product that resulted in excessive shedding.
    Also, do you braid your hair tight and with heavy extensions?

      Caomei is right , It really seems like a reaction of products you're currently using. Try to change them one by one and I wonder why dermatologist wasn't able to help as they know about all type of skin and hair types.

        Don't get me wrong and I'm not trying to be mean but black dermatologist will probably tell you the same thing. Us Black Americans, African Americans or us ethnic races have so many different back grounds and textures it's hard to find things that work for us. What works for one may not work for the other. But I will suggest two things to try and help.
        Frist try Nutriox from Sally's Beauty Supply, its a generic of Nioxin. Use those drops on the bald spots and around the general area. Don't get discourage because you may need to go through two bottles. If that doesn't work you may need to get the whole Nioxin treatment from Ulta, just ask the clerk in the store for the Nioxin pack for thinning hair.
        Let go of all the products you're using, it could be something you're using. Go simple at first while you're natural and try using something like Shea Moisture sulphate free shampoo and use the replenishing conditioner to style and that's it. Massage your scalp daily and get a water bottle and fill it with spring water or distilled water for moisture. After your hair starts growing back, then I would try other styling aids because I agree with Caomei that it's probably the products you're using.

          I would not suggest you anything but rather advice to consult an hair specialist and discuss your matter ...
