Drastic Shedding

by Kenya
(Atlanta, GA)

My hair has been shedding drastically for the past 6 years. Luckily I started off with very thick hair but now it is becoming very noticeable. I am almost positive that my hair is overprocessed however I do not want to stop getting my relaxer. I am starting to consider a more mild form of relaxer. Are child strength relaxers or texturizers easier on hair than the regular adult relaxers? I would also like to find a directory of dermatologists who specialize in african american hair in my area. Can you point me in the right direction?

Atlanta Referral for Hair Shedding

There are many potential causes for excessive hair shedding, so I will not begin to speculate about what is causing you to lose hair.

So, I will keep this brief.

Since you are located in Atlanta, I would recommend that you go to see Dr. Wesley Wilborn, M.D. He is one of my mentors and the person that I call when I have questions about how to treat various hair and scalp disorders. He should be able to help you in the best way possible.
