Always been thin just a lot of it!!
 
3 Attachment(s)
My hair has always been thin I have just had a lot of it. NOW it looks horrible. Looks like I am balding on the top. Very thin looking. Trying to poo 3 times a week and am still conditioning everyday. Have not had a change to go buy some new products yet. I am lost by all the advice on what I should try/buy. I don't want to spend a fortune on a products then it not work for my hair. Any suggestions on thickening my hair density (I guess that is what it is called..The volume of my hair) Not necessarily the thickening of the actual hair but the thickening of hair period. I am growing out the dye that is why the color of my hair is making it worse looking because of the grey. I will be cutting most of it off with a "new" hairstyle sometime this month. I am still curly stylist searching. I know now by what I have found out on this site that I am 3b/low density/high porosity/thin. Right now it is long length but will change soon. I use head&shoulders because of dandruff and itchy scalp. I have noticed it is itchier now that I am pooing less. What should I do for that issue as well?
One more thing, anyone know where you can get small quantities of hair care products for curly's? Like enough to "try" out, samples! Sorry I am so long winded. Just a lot of info I have been reading through and steps I have started to take so now more things come up. First picture is day one and the second picture is about a half hour ago. Third picture is the top of my hair (looks like almost ALL scalp) Thank for all your help!
PS. Almost for got the most important part. I have stopped using my brush I use my fingers now to "de-tangle" my hair. Even in the shower I have to "clean" my fingers they are covered in so much hair. This has been for a while (when it wasn't my fingers it was my brush I had to clean). Even when I put on the styling product and try to get it through my hair my fingers get covered in loose hair.
Again Thank you for all your help and suggestions,
Robin

There's a poster on here called kathymack who sells sample sizes of curly products, I think she has a link in her sig if you can find one of her posts so you can get in touch with her. Other than that I'm not much help - fighting the same battle as you, in fact your description of your hair could have been written for me too. I'm quite paranoid about my thinning top, it's so depressing.

I have a thinning top as well. I have traction alopecia that came from having long locs. (No, dreads don't NECESSARILY make your hair fall out, but mine were just too heavy in the front) A year post chop and its still thin, so.... I'm in the same boat as you. :(

My hair looks the same. Thinning in top but retained my hair line. I was recently diagnosed with female pattern baldness. I am on a corticozoid cream for 6 months. Then Luther options but for now, I wear my hair this way. :0) I'm just trying to stay optimistic! Attachment 26079

Have u tried Mega-tek? When I was thinning it was due to my BP meds. I've since take a different type, but MT helped me regain my hair. And castor oil helped w the thinness. I'd research it online, there r some glowing things about MT that I swear r true! HTH!!
