I recently switched hair stylists after my stylist said she did not have any clients experiencing hair loss. I went to a salon I went to years ago. I figured someone that has cut hair for a long time surely had dealt with clients with hair loss. Anyway I saw the owner of the salon. She has cut hair for 35 years and has seen a lot of hair loss. Liked her a lot. She said my hair has a lot of regrowth in the crown and my left side. The right side (which is currently my thinnest) isn't showing much regrowth. She said it was a good sign that my scalp was "loosey goosey." She said my hair felt anemic. I think that is because it is miniaturizing. But she thinks it is my hormones :$ and that it will get better with time. I go back on Thursday because they are having a special hair analysis day with reps from Phyto. I have used Phyto before and didn't realize they have a lot of products aimed at thinning hair. They use a special scope that magnifies the scalp so they can see (I guess) dead follicles, build up on scalp, etc. They don't claim to be able to regrow hair if it is Androgenetic Alopecia. But they do sell products that are suppose to help with what you have left. I am scared silly about doing this. I have not received an official diagnosis yet. But deep down I just know it is Androgenetic Alopecia. I told this stylist I didn't know if I really want to know if it is Androgenetic Alopecia or not. She said, "Yes you do." My husband agreed. But I just feel like I will not be able to handle it if they say, "Yep, classic Androgenetic Alopecia." I will probably burst into tears. I wish I wasn't this weak. But I think it is time to know. Probably this isn't even a definite way to diagnose my hair loss. But what if it is? Have any of you had this done or heard about it?
