hello! So my story starts somewhere around August, 2018. I started loosing A LOT of hair shortly after starting a new job. I ignored it for a while. Come November I realized there was a problem. My hair was always tangled. Always greasy. And it was everywhere. In my bed, in the shower, coming out when I brushed it. Falling out while I worked. I was finding it stuck in the vacuum cleaner. My once thick curly almost unmanageable hair was disappearing. Finally I was able to get into a dermatologist. He took one look at my scalp and told me it was T.E. Some days I doubt this diagnosis as I am still loosing so much hair. I’ve had blood work done recently with some interesting results. I was tested across the board for any possibility and the one thing they noticed is that my ferritin is extremely high. Was definitely expecting the opposite. So now that’s a whole other thing I have to figure out. But for the first time in months I have hope. I am growing hair again! It’s still falling out. I’ve counted regularly and it’s usually about 50-60 every shower. Not including what I loose through out the day. But I finally have little baby hairs close to my scalp. Curly tiny little ringlets! I feel I am a long way from the end. I have good days and bad. I have not put conditioner in my hair for almost 3 weeks now. Because unfortunately once I lost so much hair, my scalp is overproducing oils and my hair gets extremely oily. I’m still figuring this out. I’m a long way from the end. I just wanted to put this out there to give hope! This is the most tramatic thing that has ever happened to me. No doubt about it. I’ve maybe got about 30-40% or my original hair still. You can see my scalp in places. And all over 6 months! Don’t give up everyone. Hope is the only thing keeping me going.
