|Mrs J A Quinn asks: |
Hi, 3wks ago I discovered a bald area about the size 20p on my 10 year old daughter scalp when I was doing her hair. I took her to the doctors and the doctor thought he could see the hair follicle and thought it would repair itself. She dances and has had a lot of competitions so he thought it might be from her wearing her hair up. I have been using nioxin products on her to try and help it and been checking her scalp every day and there has been no change. Should I take her back to see a doctor or do I just wait longer, I am trying not to worry her by not making too much of a fuss.

Dear Mrs Quinn,
by the sound of your descrition it is Alopecia Areata, this is an auto immune condition .Auto immune means the body attacking itself this can be bought on by stress or possibly puberty.The follicles are dormant so may or may not recover. Small patches usually have a good prognosis and do recover! But this condition is difficult to give a defining prognosis. If the patch is in the hair line then it will be traction Alopecia from puling the hair tight so this should grow back once you stop pulling the hair so tight ...More >

I have very fine hair that is medium in length and very thin. The problem I have, is that my hair seems to separate within about 20 minutes of brushing it. It makes my hair look very unhealthy. How do I stop this separation from happening?

It sounds as if your hair is limp and lank, either from excess product or from natural sebum production. The grease, be it natural or caused by products, is separating your hair in to sections. You have naturally very fine hair, and separation is a fairly common problem among people who have fine hair, as it is the first hair type to be affected by any kind of excess oil in the hair. My first piece of advice would be to try a special shampoo, such as Kebelo Clarifying Shampoo, that purifies the hair more than an ordinary shampoo. Clarifying Shampoo acts like an exfoliator for the hair and scalp, ridding it of excess styling products, environmental impurities, grease, sweat and dirt build-up. These are common causes of limp, lank hair that can separate, as you have described. If, after trying a deep-cleansing shampoo, you notice hair is becoming separated again within a day or two, it may be that you have naturally oily hair, that needs caring for with products tailored specifically to this hair type. Kebeloís award-winning Revitalising range is a prescriptive range of products, designed especially for fine hair that is naturally oily and limp. The Revitalising Shampoo has been formulated to remove excess oils from the hair and scalp, without stripping the hair or leaving it dry. The Revitalising Conditioner has been created to give an injection of moisture to hair and nourishing locks, but without adding any grease or weight to the hair, so it doesnít cause the separation problem you have described. As your hair is medium length, you may also benefit from the BONDAGE Weekly Colour Masque, which provides additional deep conditioning and repair to any damaged hair, which then boosts the hairís body and volume. If you notice your hair is still becoming greasy and separated, within the same day as washing it, take a look at the styling products you are using. If you are using any serums or finishing products, make sure they are specifically for very fine hair. If you wish to smooth your hair, oils should generally be avoided, as they are too heavy for fine hair, whereas smoothing creams are much more suitable.
