HELP!!! 15 YEAR OLD LOSING HAIR
Dr. Weaver, I am losing my hair really bad. I am a black female, 15 yrs old and the back of my head from the crown down to the nape is appromixately 1/16 of inch. It just keeps breaking off. I am very concerned that I will no longer have enough hair to cover it up.
I was fine, but in August 2008 I when swimming at a public pool without a swimming cap and did not rinse or shampoo my hair for over 4 to 6 hours, I noticed a little breakage after then. Being in the desert, it has high winds and I forgot to put any oils in my hair a lot in Sep., Oct and Nov. I also flat iron my hair two or three times a month.
I have been reading different material on hair loss, and I also eat a lot of candy and one site said sugar in a contributing factor. I am currently using Dont Bee Bald.
WHAT CAN I DO TO STOP THE HAIR LOSS AND GET MY HAIR TO GROW BACK
