Is my hair thinning around the edges

Post by dmaddox33 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 4:05 pm

I have been natural for the past 3 years and have been growing out my hair. My hair is bra strap length, now. I do not wear weaves or put chemicals in my hair. I do style it with heat and stuff. However, over the past month or two, it looks as if my edges around the temple has been receding, on the left side. I am contemplating a visit to the dermatologist, just to be sure about what is going on with my hair. What do you guys think? I will attach some pictures.

It does look like it is a little. Are you using a heat protector when you are using heat?....are you wearing it up too tightly? I’d try to figure that out first and go from there. I’d use Jamaican black castor oil or some wild growth and some vitamins and see if that helps.

Hope that helps you some....

Hey, thanks for the reply,

To answer your question, yes I use CHI iron guard for a heat protector. I put my hair in a pony tail, but it is not tight at all. However, I have been having my mom braid my hair in straight backs, when I can't get to the hairdresser. Do you think that might be the case? I suspect. I hope that it is isn't Alopecia and will continue to break my hair off. Hopefully I can regrow it.
