My problem started when I used Nioxin shampoo/conditioner/ follicle booster. I used these products a little more than a month. Suddenly I had an allergic reaction my scalp was very sensitive, in addition to using these products; I also used their root lifter volumizer. After that application thatís when the reaction occurred. To calm my scalp, I used Dr. Miracles edges and nape balm which resulted in thinning. To counter all this, I used rosemary oil to try and stimulate hair growth. My derm prescribed clobetasol propionate. This calmed it down and my hair seemed to be doing fine because the shedding seemed to stop. Now, on some areas of my head I can see my scalp. My hair used to be very thick and long. When I shampoo my hair, my scalp still feels irritated and tight my dermatologist said that I had no follicle damage and in time my hair will grow back. I am depressed and scared that my hair will never grow back. Do you think my follicles are damaged and does an irritated scalp mean that my follicles have been damaged? I tried the jojoba oil but it did not help. Please help, totally stressed out!

Based on what your derm said I would say that your follicles are not damaged and getting stressed out will only make matters worse. What you need to do is make sure that you are eating a healthy balanced diet. Plenty of protein and omegas. A high dose of B Complex will also help. Make sure you get these from a good health food store. Do not purchase cheap drug store brands as these are not sufficient.
Try no to stress, aromatherapy help. Take warm baths and use some lavender oil or clary sage.

I have short dark curly/frizzy hair but on the right side it is straight could you tell me how to get my hair curly again. I am 43 and
have also been colouring it for years could this be the problem.
|Answered By: |
Colouring can affect the texture of hair which would explain the right side being straight, but unfortunately as we get older our hair changes texture which I fear is more likely the case here.
There are some products on the market which will encourage curl in the hair that might be worth trying like Wella System Professional Hypercurl.

I have a round-oval face and quite straight, fine, thick hair. My current style is what used to be a longer take on the bob style, but
itís growing out now and looks a bit awkward and boring. Iíd really
like a drastic cut, just to shake things up. Iíve been considering having a "boy-short" style, with longer layers at the top to keep things feminine. The only problem is because of bad mistakes in the past, I really donít like putting product in my hair and usually just dry it upside-down every morning. So considering all this, should I go for it, or just have my old bob cut back?
|Answered By: |
If you were to have your hair cut into a shorter style, I donít have a concern with it suiting you but the irony to having shorter hair is you do have to spend time styling it, where as a bob is a very quick to look after.
I would strongly recommend booking a free consultation with your hairdresser, and take some magazine photos of styles you like so they can see your thoughts.
