Back story:
Realised hair loss in April 2016.
Several drs told me “it happens, stop worrying”. I cried, I cried a lot, I worried a lot more. I was 31 and wanted to know why me.
Moved house and saw another dr, she’d Lost her hair during her Cancer battle - yet in front of me, she sat with a massive mop of hair having had it all grown back. She empathised, she referred me for steroid injections as she agreed it’s hard to take whe hair changes - it’s a massive part of a persons identity.
I have never been precious about My hair, I really am not that girlie.
Suddenly I care, suddenly I am panicking about what’s going to happen.
The injections helped it return and slow down loss. I had less than a 5p piece patch at one point.
So the dr stopped my injections.
I’ve moved again, in a lot of ways I am the happiest I have ever been Barr a vicious divorce from my ex and an on going custody battle with my ex and my partner is going through the same.
My hair loss is upto about 40/45% of my head. I get married in October 2018. It’s getting harder to disguise. My confidence is at an all time low.
I currently have topical steroid cream.
Dr again on 6/12 I am praying they will restart injections.
I have tried Zinc tablets, reducing caffeine, herbal hair supplements tableta.
Any tips as I am scared and it’s making me miserable, it itches too - really itches

Having a daughter lose her hair I had to find the best hair solution for her possible. Read my journey to China to better understand the wig industry. There is a great lady called "Chris for Hair" that does Skype work and she can help you with what you really need now and in the future, She is honest and straight forward and is in it to help others. I know you want to feel and look your best, so give her a call or an email, tell her Lisa sent you. She is a wonderful woman. She writes posts on occasion on Alopecia World.
