hair-loss

GUESS WHAT I JUST FOUND OUT!!!

So we all know Hopper’s daughter right? We get that flash back of her, and we see she wears pigtails as seen below

Well, in the next flash back scene, we see that once she losses her hair, Hopper makes her hair ties into a little bracelet he wears on his right wrist

Well, he clearly cherishes this bracelet because other than his watch and hat, this is the only sort of accessory we see him wear, and he always has it on, in any scene where his jacket is off, you can see it in season 1 and 2

Well, now let’s jump to everyone’s favourite scene from the finale of season 2: the snowball dance. It’s a great scene full of love and reasons to make you cry, but due to a little detail, you’ll be crying for a new reason. During the milleven slow dance, if you look at her wrist, eleven has a new accessory

Guys…ITS THE BRACELET!!! remember that this scene is after hopper finds out that Jane is officially his child now, meaning that Hopper has a child again and can finally move on from the heartbreak of loosing his daughter, so hE GIVES EL THE BRACELET! I CANT HANDLE THIS CUTE ASS SHOW WITH ITS LITTLE DETAILS ANYMORE!!

PSA: Do you use Herbal Essences or Garnier Fructis? Do you lose lots of hair in the shower? PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN: A Personal Tale

So first image is me in 2003. About 14 years ago. Ignore the awful cosplay photo and take in the luscious locks. Thick, wavy, I had issues taming it.

Fast forward to today in 2017 (yes i’m old) Thin, straight, I have issues getting volume and if it gets greasy I can see my bald head though it. My part has widened and putting it back is a pathetic laugh in covering scalp, so I keep it short to avoid the temptation.

Aside from getting darker, I knew some change with age happens and always attributed that to getting my hair thinned during puberty. BUT OH HOW WRONG I SEEM TO HAVE BEEN.

Around 16 I started using Herbal Essences and Garnier, wanting something ‘better’ for my hair than the Sauve and Pantene my parents bought. When I started using it I thought nothing of losing hair in the shower, cause I had so much! Besides, this is supposed to be the nicer low-end stuff, right? HA

Eventually I got so used to the ridiculous amount of hair loss in the shower I thought little of it. But after recently noticing my hair thinning to the point of looking up dermatologists for help I looked into non-prescription shampoos for thinning hair.

And in my search found a lot of people saying HE and GF made their hair fall out in chunks. Sound familiar? I was suspicious now, so last shower I used a Sephora sample of Christophe Robin Sea Salt Scrub on my hair. Try something high end, probably won’t matter, right? That’s what people say, “Oh, it’s all the same, high end you pay for a name. Why waste money?”

WRONG. Today in the shower I lost about 8 strands, mostly broken end pieces, not long, full strands like before. It was a complete 180°. My hair wasn’t coming out in droves every pass through of my fingers. I didn’t have to clean the hair trap after my shower.

So, that’s the story of how I realized my drug store shampoo was making me bald and that paying more can matter A LOT.

If you lose tons of hair in the shower and use these brands, you might want to try a salon brand for a couple weeks to see if it’s the same.

anonymous asked:

Are there any specific foods that help hair grow? My hair has always been very fine but the last couple years it's getting thinner and it has stopped growing in spots - I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be bald if I don't do something about it. Help please!!

Hi there!

It is important to get the source of your hair loss, it could be from stress to vitamins deficiency, to the products you’re using to wash it if you have done previous treatments, and so on. 

  • Protein

As hair is made of protein, ensuring you have enough protein in your diet is crucial for making hair strong and healthy. If you are not consuming enough protein in your diet, your hair is likely to become dry, brittle and weak. Extremely low protein diets may result in hair loss. 

  • Iron

Iron is an especially important mineral for hair and too little iron (anemia) is a major cause of hair loss. The hair follicle and root are fed by a nutrient-rich blood supply. When iron levels (serum ferritin) fall below a certain point, you may experience anemia. This disrupts the nutrient supply to the follicle, affecting the hair growth cycle and may result in shedding. Vegans can raise their iron stores by including lentils, spinach and other leafy green vegetables such as broccoli, kale and salad greens.

  • Vitamin C

Vitamin C aids the absorption of iron so foods high in vitamin C are good to eat in conjunction with iron-rich foods. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant so is used readily by the body. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the hair shafts.

  • Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids are important fats our body cannot make itself, and therefore must be obtained through our diet. Omega-3s are found in the cells that line the scalp and also provide the oils that keep your scalp and hair hydrated. Look out for plant sources including avocado, chia seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts.

  • Vitamin A

Vitamin A is needed by the body to make sebum. Sebum is an oily substance created by our hairs sebaceous glands and provides a natural conditioner for a healthy scalp. Without sebum, we may experience an itchy scalp and dry hair. Include orange/yellow colored vegetables which are high in beta-carotene (which makes vitamin A) such as carrots, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes.

  • Zinc and Selenium

Scalp protection involves other important minerals, notably zinc and selenium. A lack of zinc can lead to hair loss and a dry, flaky scalp. Fortified cereals and whole grains are a good source of zinc.

  • Vitamin E

The sun can damage our hair just like it can damage our skin so ensure you eat foods rich in vitamin E to provide protection for your hair. Nuts are nutritional powerhouses, providing zinc and selenium as well as vitamin E so try to include them as part of a balanced diet.

  • Biotin

Biotin is a water-soluble B vitamin. Too little biotin can cause brittle hair and may lead to hair loss. Include biotin-rich foods such as wholegrains, soy flour, and yeast.

I hope this helps! Good luck ♥️

Which side of the family does hair loss/gain during T depend on? My dads side has pretty bad male pattern balding, but my mom's barely have any, so I need to know

Lee says:
T can cause male pattern baldness, but it’s not guaranteed and relies mostly on genetics. This tag has more information on hair loss, so I recommend you scroll through that if you want to learn more about prevention. Both parents influence it, but your mom’s side’s influence is a bit stronger. 

This link ( http://www.ftmguide.org/hairloss.html ) has more information on what causes hair loss and how to deal with it and/or prevent it, so check it out!!

anonymous asked:

Does finasteride effect how deep your voice gets? I'd like to take it to prevent hair loss/ lessen bottom growth, but I want a deeper voice.

Theoretically yes, Finasteride can have an effect on the voice if taken during the early stages of someone taking testosterone. Finasteride works by systemically stopping the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). While DHT contributes to hair loss it’s also largely responsible for masculinizing effects such as voice changes, body hair, facial hair, and genital growth. Finasteride reduces the concentration of DHT within the body by roughly 70% so this would have a direct impact on the changes associated with it, including the voice. This is why Finasteride is usually only prescribed for folks who’ve been on testosterone for a few years and are beyond the developmental stages of those changes. I understand that certain bodily changes on testosterone might not be ideal but please remember that you can’t pick and choose what changes will occur.

The new Villainous short, an analysis

Because I have nothing better to do on a weekend! Yay!

I’m pretty sure that at this point everybody knows that a new Villainous short was released today (by “today” I mean November 4 of 2017, if for some reason you are reading this in another day); there’s a ton of references in the short, and since it was in Spanish and at the time I’m writing this there’s not English version of the short (fan made or CN made), I decided to write a “small” analysis of the short video. It’s more likely that by the time I end this, tons of people already posted something like this, but I want to do this anyway. Notice that this is NOT a resume of the video.

The video starts with this:

Warning!

We are not responsible for the physical, mental and emotional damage that the comments of the Lord and Master Black Hat may provoke in the audience. It is recommended use safety googles or a helmet when you visualize this video. The prolonged exposition to this show may cause sanity loss, soul loss, hair loss, nail loss, welts, itch, hard snot, stomach ache, headache, mononucleosis, tonsil inflammation, farts, desire to pee (it says “desire to go to the bathroom”; I don’t know other places but in Mexico that means you wanna pee), arthritis and swollen eyes, spasms, uncontrollable fits of laughter, urge to wear a hat, villainy, extreme evilness, sharp fangs or teeth, hyperactivity, among others. Discretion is advised. This section is mere filler and had nothing to do with the previous one, you should stop reading before you regret it. We don’t understand why are you still reading. Seriously, nobody reads the warnings and ended watching it (the video) anyway.


Then we cut to this:

Black Hat Organization

Villain Orientation Videos

Vol. 1 of 666.


Then the video starts with tons of TV’s showing video of several Cartoon Network’s villains as the intro of “Black Hat Organization Lost Cases: Ooo, with Black Hat”. A narrator’s voice greets the watchers because it means that we want to stop being an annoyance at became great villains thanks to the capacitation of the video. Something that called my attention was the narrator’s voice. There’s a Latin-American YouTube channel that dubs fan shorts and comics from Villainous, and the narrator’s voice sounds like the Black Hat’s voice of that channel when he dubs narrators; either CN contacted that guy to work with them (which I think is pretty impossible) or the narrator is Alan himself.

Black Hat then greets the watchers but is shortly cut because he starts to insulted them as he goes mad; later he presents himself, but he says we already know it because, apparently, the short is part of the “Black Hat Organization villain orientation video ahora en español” (now in Spanish) VHS, volume 1, which apparently we bought; according to Black Hat, the point of the video is that he “will mock of the pathetic forces of evil and we will give him our money”. Later we cut to several scenes of the Lich King only to later change to Count Lemongrab, much for Black Hat annoyance. For the rest of the video Black Hat complains about how Lemongrab is, in his opinion, a pathetic villain and points other stuff too.

Regarding Lemongrab as a villain we learn this:

  • Black Hat says than Lemongrab voice is annoying and that he’s an idiot for not having security as he sleeps.
  • He shows surprise when he realizes Lemongrab has ears (as he picks his own ear).
  • He complains about how Lemongrab’s “minions” are “as sweet as 5.0.5.”
  • Lemongrab’s villain speech is pathetic and that his sentences are too long.
  • He says that Lemongrab has no class (as Lemongrab strips) and is ashamed of him.
  • Lemongrab is pathetic because he allowed the Pup Gang to be disrespectful at him.
  • Lemongrab’s torture chamber lacks of torture devices.
  • He is “a crybaby, incompetent, poorly dressed guy that only shrieks” (he calls him that as Bubblegum tries to talk with him when he’s torturing Finn, Jake and the Pup Gang.)
  • His mistakes are: being a big piece of… lemon (he clearly wanted to insult him in this part), being a crybaby and not hiring Black Hat Organization.
  • However, Black Hat praised Lemongrab when he wanted to eat the apple because that was “fruit cannibalism” and becomes proud when he “tried to eat” Peppermint Butler. He was also pleased when he blasted the Pup Gang and when he tortured them and Finn and Jake.
  • He ended his analysis by calling Lemongrab “deplorable” in his file. 


However, in Black Hat’s opinion Princess Bubblegum (whom he calls “the bubblegum girl”) is THE REAL villain in Ooo because:

  • After she spikes the dirt Lemongrab was eating he says that she looks like the most intelligent person in the video and even ask Flug is she wasn’t really the villain instead of Lemongrab.
  • When she says that she knew a way of be her past self all the time Black Hat says with joy: “clearly this girl has a disturbed mind. I’d love to extirpate it from her…”
  • When Finn is putting the pieces of the candy people on Bubblegum Black Hat says that “is one of the most evil rituals he knows” because she’s using “parts of his minions” to boost herself and he says that that’s pretty effective. Then proceeds to say that he is going to remove an arm off Flug, presumably to boost himself like her.
  • Black Hat asks if he’s really the only one who sees that Bubblegum is more diabolic than Lemongrab, especially because she created him “and condemned him into a life of suffering”.
  • He says that Bubblegum is pretty intelligent by “pretending she agreed in her rival’s terms when in reality she’s sending the worst of her society” and that is a really great villain lesson to learn.
  • He, however shows great disappointment because she didn’t learn of her past mistakes (by cloning Lemongrab); he even says that the situation is going to became worst because “it will end in one of them eating the other”.
  • He praised her when she was cutting the legs of a candy with her scissors, but the scene apparently became too much for him later.


Black Hat also:

  • Wanted to see Lemongrab breaking Manfried because “wanted to see his sweets organs”.
  • Was disgusted of Cinnamon Bun.
  • Every time Finn and Bubblegum shows affection to each other he becomes really angry.
  • He says that Bubblegum and Finn should squeezed Lemongrab instead of putting a note. He proceeds to say that he will show an example and calls for 5.0.5. to come.
  • When Bubblegum rejects Finn Black Hat laughs and says “you can see the part when his heart breaks in half!”


By the way, the information of Lemongrab’s file says this:

Count Lemongrab

  • Subject: Lemongrab.
  • Age: ???
  • Gender: Male.
  • Species: Fruit.
  • Taste: Sour.
  • Status: Alive (unfortunaly).
  • Abilities: None.

ridiculous and pathetic.


The video ends with a live action Black Hat “squeezing” Lemongrab and with a special thanks list, aka “Black Hat’s black list”. In italics I put the ones I recognized and I could translate; the names in normal letter where the ones I didn’t recognize, even if I traslated their names. The names in black are the ones who have diferent names in spanish, but for some reason were already in English.


Flug, Vilgax, Yellow Diamond, Marvin (the Martian?), Lex Luthor, Peppermint Butler, Cambot, Phil Ken Sebben, Top Cat.

The Red Guy, Mojo Jojo, Mandark, Excusator, Nergal, Katz
, Hammerhead, Aku, Grodd, Siniestro.


Snorkel, Sticky Stud, Secuencia, Diego, Diego Mejia, Gafael, Kimmy, Kim, Black Manta, Spuntaneous, Salmonella Fitzgerald, Him, The Beast, The Kanker Sisters, Father, King Ramses, Malek, Medusea.


Some of the names where recognizables others… not that much. Who are those people? Animators? Future characters?


Regardless of that, we did learn lots about Black Hat:

  • In Black Hat’s opinion, pineapples are evil, but lemons are useless.
  • According to him, once he puked on a past minion’s face and that’s the reason Flug works for him now; he says this when he plays with the red skull in his desk, maybe implying that that’s his past minion’ skull.
  • He says that minions should taste their master’s food first as a safety precaution.
  • Watching Lemongrab being punched by Finn and Bubblegum make him laugh so much that in one point he loosed control over his powers and the video cuts momentarily to this beautiful picture:
  • He also laughs maniacally when Peppermint Butler is crying over the spice serum in his eye and you can hear a little echo in his laugh, perhaps because he wasn’t in full control of his powers at that point.
  • He stays that “(a minion) only learn their lesson if they can see light at the end of the tunnel”, and that’s why he complains about Lemongrab’s excessive long sentences.
  • He IS the original Black Hat, the one who created the “black hat” type of villain in movies.
  • According to him, a real villain shouldn’t let a pubert to be disrespectful at him.
  • The sound of a hero screaming in pain is “always put a smile in his face”, but then the camera show Black Hat not being happy at all, causing that the person with him (Flug? The narrator? Alan!?) to laugh awkwardly.
  • “Rule #43 of the manual: Do not stop attacking until your enemy’s heart stops beating!”


But there are other things that fans may not notice:

  • The fact that Black Hat wants to rip off one of Flug’s arms and use it in a similar ritual than Bubblegum’s to boost his power may suggest that Flug is in fact, not human, but a supernatural creature.
  • He says that 5.0.5. is indeed a failed experiment. Alan already confirmed that in his Pixelart conference, but now we have an actual canon confirmation.
  • Black Hat’s manor may have a torture chamber.
  • There’s a manual of how to be evil, apparently.
  • Sometimes you can hear “Black Hat Organization”, other you can hear “Organización Black Hat”.
  • Black Hat’s Organization “please stand by” picture is Cambot fighting against one of Black duplicates (specifically, the short one) who is using a fish as a weapon.

Technical difficulties. Don’t go away! 


  • The short was clearly archive footage.
  •  Is more likely that Alan was the live action Black Hat at the end of the video.
  • BLACK HAT HAD A MOUSTACHE!

See!?

(By the way, why is thay woman smiling? Did she saw a hero coming to her rescue? Is she smiling because the photo? Is she happy because Black Hat is about to kill her? Is she insane as Demencia? Is she Demencia’s ancestor? Is that Demencia!?


  •  It was clearly that the video was shoot just after 5.0.5. creation, because you can see a picture of him glued at the VHS tape’s case.
  • By the way, in a bigger version of the image you can see clearly that Demencia’s feet are in her head and Flug is in shorts with Black Hat too close to him.

You can take that as you want.

I want to start when I turn 18 but I'm afraid of hair loss because my mom's side and my dad's side of the family both have history with male hair loss, with both my dad and grandads losing hair as soon as 20 y.o. I just feel like my hair is a big part of my identity that I don't want to lose.

Kai says:

I know that Skylar Kergil and I believe Chase Ross (both on youtube and instagram) have taken DHT blocking pills or used DHT blocking shampoo to slow down hair loss due to T. (basically DHT is something your body will make from converting testosterone and is responsible for hair loss on the top of the head) but if you block it, it can help prevent or slow down hair loss.

In the end, we can’t tell you whether or not going on T is right for you, but you could try this. Alternatively, the effects of hair loss may be slower if you go on a lower dose of testosterone.

Lee says:

While you can use DHT blockers like Finasteride to counter hair loss, DHT is one of the things that causes stuff like your body hair growing and voice lowering and things so you can’t start DHT until you’ve been on T for a few years already or the changes you want from T will happen slower or possibly not at all. The link below has two links that should be helpful, one to the Hudson’s Guide page on hair loss & prevention and the other to @gendercube’s tag on it. https://transgenderteensurvivalguide.tumblr.com/post/164003065985/which-side-of-the-family-does-hair-lossgain

Normal hair loss patterns for men and women that come with age. An illustration set for a paper on interpreting, investigating, and managing hair loss in primary care.

Hair loss affects more people with age, including 80% of men, and over 50% of women by age 80. The hair loss in these images is the typical distribution for men and women, called androgenetic alopecia (hair loss), caused as the name suggests, by genetically predetermined areas of hair which are sensitive to androgen hormones.

anonymous asked:

Two questions about T, first I'm 13 and 5'3", if I started when I'm older 13// younger 14 would there be a chance I could keep growing? I know if I was AMAB I'd probably be a lot taller because my dad and brother are super tall. Also, I'm a tad concerned about a receding hair line and going bald. My dad is bald on top of his head with hair on the side, and my brother started losing his hair significantly at 15/16 so I'm concerned. Thank you!

Lee says:

I think you’d have a good chance of growing, yeah. And T can cause male pattern baldness so you may have a higher chance of hair loss because your brother lost his hair young because it’s genetic. This post has more information on hair loss, and you can see Hair Loss: Information and Treatment Options.

anonymous asked:

dear cliff: since going to uni several of my friends and i have felt our hair is thinning (!?!?) WHY? is it b/c our city has hard water? cold weather? diet? nutrition? vitamins? not enough dairy? not eating organic? stress? pls save us

I don’t know.  There’s a lot of things that can cause hair loss, but the likeliest to happen to several people all at once, just as they’re starting uni, are either that your diet is inadequate or you’re under too much stress. 

You don’t need dairy or organic food, but are you living on ramen?  Don’t live on ramen (or any other food that’s 99% starch).  Or at least mix in as much meat/tofu and vegetables as you can afford.  Lack of protein, lack of iron, or just plain insufficient food can cause hair loss. 

And are you sleeping?  There’s a lot of causes of stress in uni and I can’t really address them all in a Tumblr ask, but one of the biggest is if you just aren’t getting any damn sleep.  Really try to get 7-8 hours a night–it’ll help your overall health and mood as well as your hair.

If it’s not one of those, make an appointment at the campus health center, because you’ve reached the limits of my ability to tele-diagnose.

anonymous asked:

I've been vegan for a year and a half and I'm really struggling. I was losing weight even before I went vegan, and after I went vegan I started losing weight even faster. What's worse is that I've been experiencing a lot of hair loss lately, and it's really freaking me out. Everyone in my family says I should try eating meat again, and so does my doctor, when she even takes me seriously... I want to stay, I really do, but I don't know what to do anymore. Do you have any advice?

I just want to preface this with the fact that I have no qualifications in nutrition or medicine, all I know is just based on experience and research. This is something that has been reported by a few vegan women in particular, and it may not even be dietary to be honest, but if it is, what you’re likely looking at is thyroid problems, or iron deficiency, zinc deficiency or not getting enough of the amino acid lysine. There is some evidence that too much soy can cause an overactive thyroid in people who are particularly sensitive to soy. My advice would be to try and increase amount of zinc, iron and lysine, all are very easy to get from plant foods, and decrease soy intake if you can. If this helps then you know it’s dietary, if it doesn’t, there may be another issue and I’d advise going back to the doctor for a second opinion. 

If you do see the doctor again, don’t just let them tell you to eat meat, insist on proper testing to find out what it is you are actually missing. “Meat” is not a nutrient, no one is lacking in meat, they’re lacking in a vitamin or nutrient, and all of the vitamins and nutrients found in meat can be found elsewhere. Doctors generally don’t have much training in nutrition, and just assuming whatever a vegan is experiencing is because of their veganism is really common. If it is a dietary, then you need to alter your diet, but it doesn’t follow that you need to give up veganism, at least not until you try other options and see a properly qualified dietitian if necessary. Get them to find out precisely what it is you need, whether it’s more calories, fats, irons or whatever- then find vegan foods high in what you are lacking and incorporate them into your diet.

In terms of weight loss, there is no reason you can’t get more calories from a vegan diet than you took in as a meat eater. There are plenty of high calorie vegan food, and you should try to incorporate healthy fats into your diet much more, things like avacado, hummus, chickpeas, nuts and nut butters, olives, olive and coconut oil- there really are plenty of options for this so there shouldn’t be any reason you would need to return to meat in order to gain weight.
