I met a lady that said the crown area of her hair had fallen out. It started out as a small area and then continued to expand. And she asked if I knew what could be the cause of it. I asked could she be allergic to the products she uses. She said no. I asked if she might have applied too much heat or pulling in one area. She said no. I couldn’t think of anything else. So I suggested she try Nutiva Coconut Oil to help her hair grow back. That’s what helped me when I lost my hair in the front due to heat damage. I forgot to mention to her that Black Jamaican Castor Oil has a good reputation for stimulating hair growth. I can’t vouch for Castor Oil because I’ve never tried it. But I heard that Castor Oil, like Coconut Oil, it will also make the hair you don’t want to grow grow as well. I also forgot to mention that Infinity [hair pills] is a very popular product with people who have been able to achieve waist length hair. And Biotin vitamins can be used ( but will make unwanted hair grow as well).
Later on that night I did some research because I do realize that she didn’t ask me what would help her hair grow back she really wanted to know what was causing her hair to fall out in a particular area. I found that there are several issues that can cause hair loss in women.
I have listed them below:
*Tammy Worth [WebMD.com]
- Thyroid disorder, anemia, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
- Menopause or Psoriasis
- Too much Vitamin A
*Everyday Health [Huffingtonpost.ca]
- Female pattern baldness
- Stress due to unexpected traumatic experience
- Side effect from some medications
*Winne YU and Prevention [ABCnews.go.com]
- Major surgery
I hope this helps !!
