Having said that, it may…"
"That's good to hear, Angie. Thanks! Yeah, I've been using the same stylist and when I did check with her months later she said there'd been no change. Seems like the only thing that's changed is my head! Interestingly, when I had…"
"So far, I have gotten color 3 or 4 times since finding out i have alopecia. I haven't had any reaction to date while the color is on my hair. I do get itchy at times where my hair is missing, but not while coloring it. I have read that itching…"

"From my experience, it is just a waiting game; I just replied to the 17 year old who posted, "Just a few questions." I've read all the replies and your responses to date. I was given the cortisone injections by a…"
"I'm really sorry you are going through this. I started the same way. I've now lost about 40%-50% of my hair on my head and it just keeps falling out. Currently I'm trying the AIP diet to see if it will help along with Corizone…"
