I have alopecia areata and it has limited my styling options. I've never worn a bun or a puff. I'm going to try it tomorrom with a head band to see if I can hide the bald patch that way. My hair loss was extensive at one point but with the help of EO's I now only have it at the nape. That area has been very stubborn. I'm trying JBCO. Once my hair starts growing it grows pretty fast. I do take flaxseed gel and silica but I think it does more for my skin.
