I am Elline, and like so many of you, I have been living with my own hair situation for a very long time. I have andro-genetic alopecia and started experiencing the effects of hair loss at the early age of 9.
After finding no suitable, safe, high-end and all-natural alternatives for my accelerating hair loss - I took it upon myself to stand up for the 46 million women in the United States who suffer from some form of hair-thinning or hair loss. This has been the driving force behind the LeMetric Hair Centers, which I created, and continues to be my main focus.
Hi! I just watched you video response to me right now (thanks!). You answered one of my main concerns which is "Will I lose all of my hair?" I still sometimes wonder if I will, though, because I've only had Androgenic Alopecia for a few years and I've already lost more than half the thickness of my hair. I used to have a bush, but now it's much thinner, much flatter, and to some extent it's also not as curly/wavy. Naturally this has caused me a great deal of stress. Sometimes I don't feel the same love for shopping and Halloween the way I used to because I always wonder how I would still look in a certain outfit if I didn't have my hair.
Did you ever reach a point when you thought your hairloss was lightening up and then it started again? I'm currently taking birth control pills to see if it's a hormonal problem, but there hair is still coming out in the comb. As you said in one of your videos - it's a pain in the ass!
But thank you for being so kind to me. Have a great day!
I was recently diagnosed with Androgenic Alopecia and I see you have it too. I am not too familiar with it, but I would really appreciate it if you could tell me what to expect.
Have a great evening!
Thanks, Elline. I saw the dermatologist yesterday - she still strongly feels it's telogen effluvium. The shedding is slowing down somewhat so we'll wait and see (and try not to think about it!!!). Glad to know there's options though....
From my profile I'm sure you learned that I'm not sure if I actually have AGA or telogen effluvium. However, all I know is that I'm loosing hair! While I still have hair I just don't like it. It is so thin and lifeless. What would you advise while I'm waiting to see if things change? I've pretty much lost most hair in the temles and my part is widening at the front. I just want to feel like my old self again! Thanks for being such an inspiration - at least I know there is hope for the long haul!
