Alopecia natural hair help
 
Hello Everyone!

My mom has been natural for some years (about 7 yr) and she has Alopecia. She is thin on the sides and the top of her hair. Her back is still thin but full and looks to have the texture of 3c. She has a hard time growing hair because of the alopecia and desires for it to be full or at least have some type of increase in growth. Lately, she has been feeling very discouraged because she can only wear her hair in a bush and want something to work for her hair. Trying to do a style alway end up being a bush I have been researching to try to find somethings that may work for her. Does anyone have any tips or ideas that could possibly help her? thanks so much and I really appreciate it. God Bless! :)

Here is what she uses:
Jane Carter Solution Nutrient replenishing conditioner & hydrating invigorating shampoo (sls-free)

Giovanni Direct Leave-in weightless moisture conditioner

coconut oil (makes her hair too greasy)

Donna Marie Dream Curling Cream (for attempt styling)

Glycerin (hot weather in south)

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.

Which eo's have you used adthomas? JBCO isn't working for me unfortunately, always open to new suggestions.
TIA.

I got my best results using an oil blend made by a company called Doo Gro. I used Mega Thick Growth oil at least once a day but only on the affected areas. I grew back all my hair except the nape. My cousin had alopecia and an oil blend called called Wild Hair Growth worked for her but not for me.
I know some products may not be available where you live so I want to tell you I do sometimes make my own blend. I use grapeseed for my carrier oil then lavender, rosemary, cedar, thyme and nettle as the eo's. The guy at the health store told me to use five drops of each of eo in a 4 fl oz. bottle of carrier oil.

I recently started drinking a hair regeneration tea I found in the health food store. It has Chinese herbs. The company is called Health King.

Thank you for that, I think I'll give making my own a try, I've got a couple of those oils already so I might as well.
I'll google the products you mentioned too - never know, someone may ship over here.
Thanks again.
