Can We Talk About Hair Thinning?

…Because it’s arduous to seek out good intel out right here in these Google streets. This presents an pressing downside as a result of I feel hair thinning is going on to me. Ladies and gents of the jury, to your consideration: My hair has at all times been naturally skinny but curly, I’m borderline anemic (apparently related relating to this topic), and thinning appears to run in my household. But extra urgent is that the hair round my temples began to look, I don’t know…much less full…shortly after I graduated faculty. Slowly, my hair regarded flatter and flatter, solely to be eclipsed by an much more horrifying remark: My scalp was getting much more publicity, if you realize what I imply. The width of my aspect half appeared to widen like a belt buckle after too many too many journeys to Taco Bell for his or her award-winning gordita.

In what I can solely conclude was a success job to my vainness, this invasive scalp cleavage is happening whereas I proceed my lifelong pursuit of over-the-top skincare. Never met a serum, essence, chemical peel, or mud masks that didn’t really feel like an instantaneous and essential life addition. It by no means occurred to me to place that very same power into hair care, however right here I’m—January, 2019—with a decision to do exactly that.

Here’s the pitch: I need to be form to my hair! And hopefully, it’ll be form to my vainness in return. In my ebook this implies much less fast comb detangling and extra laborious finger-detangling.

But you’ll be able to take it to the financial institution that I’m going to seek out out.)

So, what’s on deck? Maybe I’ll get extra into the extra medical options, like Minoxidil, the one FDA-approved ingredient for ladies’s hair loss, present in remedy programs like Keranique and…you’re going to make me say it, aren’t you? Fine, Rogaine [typed with a air of a defeatist sigh].

Other issues I’m prepared to think about:
– Protective hairstyles
– Wrapping my hair earlier than going to mattress (haven’t performed this since faculty; an excessive amount of work)
– Lasers
– Diet change
– Castor oil
– Kidding about food regimen change. Taco Bell four lyfe.

What I’m not prepared to think about:
– Supplements (they make me queasy—actually)

And then I’ll maintain you all posted on the triumphs and fails on the location you occur to be studying proper now. Buckle up. Things are hopefully about to get fairly bushy.
