i had my eyebrows microbladed yesterday . I have frontal fibrosising alopecia. After she started with the microblading she was having a hard time with my skin on the eyebrows. She said it was very…Continue
"I notice more loss different periods but haven’t noticed it being a certain time of year. Rather I relate it to stress or I’m wondering if it’s connected to what I eat or what I’m putting on my head ( shampoo, coloring,…"
"Wow! This is exactly the same as me. I thought I was going a little bonkers when I used to think mine was seasonal. Every time my AA has decided to flare up or get very bad is always within the months of May to August. This year it is bad again…"
"Thanks AnnieMay for your comment. My head has been very sensitive this summer. I have been thinking it is due to wearing hats a lot more. I'm trying to wear more sunscreen clothing and big hats so I don't have to use sunscreen very often.…"
"Interesting observation! I too notice more hair loss during the times my sinuses are acting up, particularly in the late summer early fall when the mold is high. I've always wondered if this condition is related to…"
"I don't notice more hair loss at certain times of the year but what I do notice is differences in the sensitivity of my scalp. This summer has been very hot here and it's been driving me crazy. I try and forget about all this but it's…"
"I've noticed this too. I've been stable for a couple years and then all of a sudden this spring I started shedding lots of hair again. I was wondering if it's due to allergies--tree pollen in spring and ragweed now. Nothing else has…"
"I was diagnosed a year and a half ago. I noticed but didn't realize I had the same pattern you describe last July & August and this year. Last year I chalked it up to stress ( moving, building a house, living in a trailer). This year the…"
I was diagnosed with FFA about a year ago. Last August I noticed lot of hair loss. Then it seemed to slow during the winter & Spring. All the way through July, then in August it flared up again. I’m still losing hair just like last year. I did change my sunscreen from the bad ingredients in them that I read on this website. Just wondering anyone else notice a pattern? See More
"From the reading I’ve done I have to agree with Chris. All we can hope for is that it burns itself out but have a plan and goal in place for the worst case scenario, but don’t give up hope for the worst case scenario. Good luck!"
"Minter - I’m glad to see your comment on the microblading. Your tech commenting on how thick your brow skin was. I just had the same experience & googled it but didnt see anything specific to eyebrows being thick skinned. My lady that did…"
"Hi jam, I’m sorry you have been unfortunate to get this awful disease. I was just diagnosed last October. I don’t understand why you were only offered the hydroxyxhloroquine. There are more options. But the one that I have…"
"I had mine done about a month ago. It is so nice to get up in the morning not looking like an extra in a Star Trek movie. Mine are a little thinner than I wanted but I just use a little brow powder. My technician didn't have any trouble with my…"
I have a friend who has always had thin hair. She hasn't been diagnosed with anything- just unlucky in the hair dept. She started using essential oils and had some success. She used something call Ylang Ylang along with lavender and cedarwood. I'll try this concoction since it was a scientific study. I have been using cod liver oil and it's soothed my itchy scalp. Dr. says to stop with Clobetasol for awhile...*sigh* It's always something isn't it! :)
