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 am a student and need to know, if someone has a full head highlights of bleach and they want to go a brown copper colour, will I need to pre-pig it first, and how will I do this? Also will I need to pre-pig the natural re-growth of roots or leave them out. What colour would you recommend to get from highlighted bleach blonde to Ashley Simpsonís new colour (browny copper I think?)
|Answered By: |
I think it would be wise to fill it all first and then revisit it and see how much deeper you want to go. The brown copper sounds like a nice idea.

I am 41 and have medium to fine textured hair thatís just below chin length bob thatís coloured red. I get fed up of my hair and like to change it regularly including the colour, I am happy to style it, I have a heart shaped face but I am a little overweight so it appears slightly rounder, any ideas!

Layering the hair is often a great solution to add new life to your look. Keep the layers square as this will remove and neutralize the appearance of roundness. Perhaps something a little off balanced will keep the shape fresh Ė if you are daring enough! Styling is vital to the new look, Iím a huge fan of using the texture nature provides and your hands are the best tool when it comes to styling. Layering is the perfect solution, add some multi dimensional colour Ė a few shades, focused on the front of the hair cut will enhance the shape.
