This is an update from my other trichotillomania post. As you guys know I pull my hair, eyebrows and eyelashes out. My hair is starting to grow back and so are my brows ! The first picture is me with no makeup at all and no hair and the second is after I did my makeup and wig today. I hope getting this out there helps someone else and I’m going to try and be brave enough to do this once a month to show my progress.

I get such anxiety putting the first picture out there but that’s the truth, it’s me when I’m not working and me when I’m trying to let my hair grow out.

Please be nice ! It takes a lot for me to do this and I hid it away for 4 years.

To all other trich people out there we can do this 🙌

Women make up 40 PERCENT of people who lose their hair.

Balding ain’t just a guy thing.

TIPS FOR GIRLS WITH ALOPECIA/HAIR LOSS

I’ve had alopcia areata/universalis for 8 years and here’s a lost of products I use/tips for living with hair loss. feel free to add to this!!

Eyebrows

I don’t draw on my eyebrows (if any girls are super good at that please add your input) but I use these little stick on eyebrows that are made of real hair and look super realistic. Just use clear eyelash glue from any drugstore to stick on your face. They’re a little expensive but you can clean them just by soaking them in some water overnight and peeling any glue residue off. If you take care of them they can last for 6+ months. They come in tons of colors/shapes.

Eyelashes

I love sephora fake eyelashes, but if ya just use some black eyeliner on your top lid and wing it, no one will notice you don’t have eyelashes.

Wigs

I buy all my wigs from ebay or gothic lolita wigs. Whether you choose a human hair wig or a synthetic wig, invest in a little steamer such as this one to get all the kinks out as you wear it over time.

Covering bald spots

Xfusion is a fantastic product that helps cover bald spots big and small. Learn about how to apply it here, and buy everything you need off of amazon (it will be a ton cheaper).

Loving yourself

In my personal experience, alopecia is easiest to deal with when you don’t make it a big part of your life. Take those steps you know will be the hardest. Go out in public without a wig or just in a hat, talk about it with your friends and family like it isn’t a big deal (even if it feels like it is). Take care of yourself! You will learn to love yourself! 

If any girls out there struggling with alopecia have questions feel free to message me.

i’ve never seen any positivity for this but here’s to people who suffer from alopecia or something else that makes their hair thin/fall out. you’re beautiful and i love you and i’m your mom now

don’t let anyone make you feel bad if you wanna wear a wig or hat or extensions or if you DON’T wanna wear any of those things.

shout out to those who can’t do the fancy hair styles they wish to because of thinning/balding. shout out to those who wear a hood even when it’s not cold

I LOVE YOU AND I AM YOUR MOM NOW

So after surgery I had some serious hair loss. Like I had to brush my hair outside serious. Like I was kissing a guy and he pulled his hand out of my hair and it was full of hair, hair loss. Yep. Any who it’s coming back and I laugh every morning when I spray it down! It’s so nice to feel my body returning to an equilibrium and finding normal again when I nourish it.

Wooooh wooohhh wait. Your tag said your hair falls out a bit because fibro? Is that a thing? Is that why my hair is ALWAYS falling out? A ton? Im not crazy? Like a ton of hair comes out every time I brush or shower. Always. I feel so validated

haha 😄 it’s a great feeling seeing others with the same thing going on!

It probably won’t say it exclusively under the fibro title but I’m sure in that “200 symptoms of fibro” list it is mentioned.

I observe tonnes of spoonies around who share the issue, some with severe hair loss that they have a pixie cut or near shaven.

One who is often ranting about hers, is heyatleastitsnotcancer. She has EDS so it might be contributed to other conditions that fibro (and many with fibro will have long strong hair) so as I’m sobbing her in, she might be able to say more on the subject.

Whenever I wash my hair it’s like my scalp malts. Fortunately you can’t tell by looking at me, but my hair has definitely thinned. Brushing is madness!

feel validated hun, it’s not just you!! x

*PICTURE PROGRESS* Pull free- Day 14- Week 2- April 11th, 2015 If you think this looks bad, you should’ve seen what I looked like 2 weeks ago. I’m making progress and that’s what matters. I’ve been really nervous when it comes to posting these pictures. I feel really insecure and ugly. I’m also really ashamed of all the damage I’ve caused to my scalp and hair. I just hope that I can repair it. I don’t want to give up this time.

These are my real results after only two months of It Works Hair Skin Nails supplements. (And yes I’m selling it!)

This is really hard for me to post because this is the first time I’ve actually compared the difference.

For the last two years I’ve struggled with my hair falling out. Doctor visits, dermatologists, everything. I am severely anemic so my hair started falling out in handfuls and although I take iron supplements to help get my levels up, it did not help with my hair loss. I tried the shampoos, Rogaine drops, Biotin, folic acid, nothing worked. I gave up on it until about 2.5 months ago when my friend @ewaswierzbinska posted her before and after photos.

Unfortunately I didn’t take any length photos because my hair is already so long, but I have noticed it’s grown tremendously and my nails grow fast too (you can’t tell because I chew them off 😠).

These are my real, personal photos. No edits, no nothing.

HSN is all-natural, cruelty-free, and works for men and women. Please let me know if I can help you.

Yes all blood work came back fine Had my thyroid thing checked. Fine. But yes thank you for the advice. My whole life I've had long thick hair and it's driving me crazy thinking about losing it. Thank you so much.

Eat plenty of beans, seeds and nuts, nut butters, soy, whole grains, you should be getting plenty of protein, B vitamins and minerals and hair loss should not be an issue!
