Hey Jord IDGAF if you answer this private or public but are there any foods that help with Hair thinning? I'm kinda noticing on the back of my head and since im 27 I want to know if theres anything I can do to minimize it I dont mind shaving it but I want that when Im 30 lol

Well man we just learned about Alopecia in anatomy and I mean it does happen but there are some ways like Eating a lot more almonds and minimizing the amount of times you “relieve tension” in a week but hey don’t fret man. I’d say embrace it when it gets overly noticeable and just keep shaving I mean. Ya don’t have to be the Anime Badass with flowing hair just look how many awesome people are Badasses who are Bald/Shaved

Also realize something YOU ARE BLACK!! Bald Heads aint no big deal to us. No one can use that Dumbass Bald Spongebob meme on you cause you’re black and we naturally rock the Baldy 

Hell I’ve shaved my a few times just to see if I could Rock it and since theres probably a Good chance in the future that I’ll lose my hair like my Dad, I’m not too worried cause I’ve Proven I can rock it 

But eat some almonds and quit lookin at so many “late night movies” and see what happens. Also that Green tea  Hair stuff may work. But again Don’t worry about it. Personally I don’t know how females feel about Bald/Shaved heads but you should be good.

“The art and tradition of using all-natural paste from the henna plant to create temporary henna tattoos goes back to ancient Asian and Middle-Eastern history, but there’s one group that has taken this ancient art form and given it a new, modern purpose. Henna Heals is a community of henna artists based in Canada that creates beautiful flowering henna crown tattoos for women who have lost their hair to cancer and chemotherapy. The henna crowns, which feature traditionally feminine floral patterns, religious symbols and messages of hope, help women suffering from cancer cope with the loss of their hair to cancer. For people suffering from cancer, losing their hair to chemotherapy is a demoralizing difficulty that only adds to the emotional and physical struggles that come with their disease. “For cancer patients, the henna crowns really are a healing experience,” said Frances Darwin, the founder of Henna Heals. “This is all about them reclaiming a part of themselves that would normally be perceived as ill or damaged or not nice to look at and making it more feminine and beautiful.” An individual’s hair is a big part of how they perceive themselves, so many psychologically or spiritually focused healing campaigns focus on coping with hair loss as a way to help cancer patients’ lives easier. Albert Bredenhann was also part of a project in which one cancer patient’s friends decided to help their friend cope with a different but also powerful hair-related surprise.”–http://www.boredpanda.com/henna-temporary-tattoo-cancer-patients-henna-heals/

I apologize for anyone who cannot stand loose hair - but the hair loss has started. 😖😢😥 I’m posting a picture because I did not understand what “clumps” of hair meant. It is intense and honestly heartbreaking for me.

For those of you who have not started losing your hair yet - this is just the hair I lost after conditioning and after combing out my hair after the shower.

I only wash my hair every 4 days - partly because of this and I’m just lazy. I take 10,000 mg of Biotin each day and use a biotin and collagen shampoo and conditioner to reduce breaking and thicken.

I’m just praying my hair is thick enough - I have A LOT of hair - that it will not be noticeable to others. Like many other women - especially those with weight issues - I have clung to my hair as my beauty security blanket. But as my body changes so is my hair and I’m going to have to continue to adapt until it stops.

I finished Chemo! Last Friday i finished my fourth cycle of ABVD chemo!!

So i know over the last months I haven’t written much here. The truth is I really haven’t been very public about this, I told the people who I care about right when I was diagnosed and then if people wrote me and asked me how i have been or what I am up to i might tell them.

At my college everyone knows, its so small news like this travels fast and when your gone people wonder why. But I haven’t written or posted about it on Facebook or Instagram. I probably look like always on those social media platforms. I guess I just don’t want pity - that was the hardest at the faces of people that found out that you have cancer, it made me so uncomfortable.

I lucked out - I was never extremely ill, side-effects where really minimal. My blood work was always strong, my neulasta shots always worked. I was able to finish my second semester of college from home! I am so grateful for all of that.

The only thing that did go was my hair. On the top pictures you can see my hair pre-chemo, straightened and all natural. The below pictures where taken today after my shower, its barley there - if i put it in a high bun though you can not really tell that its really that little. I really really really hope it comes back soon and grows fast so it will be long again. The truth is i know it will take three years to have the same hair as in the picture above but you can always dream.

I will officially be cancer free on the 17th of July even if i might need radiation after that - “just to be safe”. I’m going back to college in September and I can’t wait for that!

So I have this problem where my hair falls out… a lot. Not like it falls out in clumps and I’m going bald but like I shed hair like a wild animal in the summer. It’s not because of stress or anything, it’s most likely genetic because my sister’s does it too. 

I’m kinda sick of taking a shower and worrying about clogging the drain (yes it’s that bad) so does anyone have any suggestions on something that might help? 

Does anyone have any suggestions for cute short hairstyles? Between my hair falling out and my arms/hands not cooperating, I feel chopping my hair off may be a good idea. I haven’t had short hair in a really long time though, and I have no idea what styles may be good for those who can’t do a lot of effort. 

Dyeing my hair is literally one of the best things I’ve ever done for my sense of self love and worth <3 It’s kind of silly because of how much it’s already faded over the past month (it’s supposed to be all teal, but now I’m kind of all greens at once) but looking at myself makes me smile and feel happy. After dealing with intense hair loss and being terrified to do anything to it that would start it up again, being happy to see my hair as a satisfying part of my reflection is amazing. Just happy to Be today <3

Starting the “No Poo”... well sort of.

That is right, I will stop using commercial shampoo on my hair for about a month (for now). I have been loosing a lot of hair recently, to the point where I get little scared that I might just go bald (maybe I am being dramatic).

Tumblr will help me get through this as I will write about my progress here!  

Today is day 3 and I already feel like my hair is greasy… but I am going through the notorious “transitional period.” Most people might think that the smell of my hair smells but it doesn’t! What really bothers is the heavy, greasy feeling on my head. The funny thing is that it feels greasy but it doesn’t look greasy. I plan on waiting out until day 5 until I wash my hair with just water and very small amount of shampoo bar. 

Let’s see how this goes!

Hey guys!  Here’s what I’m working with right now.  My eyebrow was nice and dark a few hours ago.  Man, pulling sucks :( I hope you are all doing well. If you haven’t seen my recent video “How To Feel Better After Pulling”  Here is the link –> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-8LFK5XJpo
