About Me:
I was just diagnosed with androgenic alopecia in August 2011 but I suffered hair loss for 3 years now after using the bcp Loestrin24. The sheds haven't stopped since so I think it's the culprit! Its a private struggle since no1 can tell by looking at me (yet) Really looking for holistic or medicine treatments options, wig help from people who have "been there done that" and much needed support!!!
Do you have alopecia?
Female pattern baldness
Are you age 18 or older?
Yes - I am 18 or older

Wigs for girls with curls

Posted on October 14, 2011 at 1:00pm 1 Comment

Does anyone have any experience buying curly/wavy wigs online? I find so many straight ones but not many nice spiral curly wigs. I have a loose spiral curl latin type hair like Salma Hayek and Mila Kunis (before they found their flat irons) Please share!! Anyone ever buy wigs from or Please let me know about the quality and how long they last. Thank you

Thank you for the compliment! xo!

Hi NYCGirlie,
Thanks for the friend request. I checked out those 2 wig sites that you discussed in an earlier post. Expensive!!! But I like the celebrity wigs. I might drop a couple hundred on one of those.

Hi there- Andro genetic hair loss is a slow shedding problem. By taking the wrong pill it often causes the shedding. You have to have the genetic predisposition to it tho. The pill turns it on. Treatment is aimed at 2 things. 1) arrest further progression by blocking the gene that promoted pattern thinning. You can switch pills to diane 35 which is an androgen blocker. There are other things you can take also plant estrogens. Do not take propecia as this is for post menopausal women.2) to promote regrowth you need to use minoxidil lotion 5% twice per day. initially this may cause a slight shedof the hairs that are ready to fall anyway they just go all at once, but it will settle down once you have adjusted to the ingredients. Blood tests are sometimes done to determine if there is any hormonal imbalance.i hope this helps.
