Hello! This is my first post here and it's a bit of an urgent one! I reaaallly need help. After years of chemical and heat damage I had my big chop on the 27th of last month. Ever since then I've been dealing with extreme dryness, moderate itchy scalp and now this....actual dry, bald patches in my hair. I've dealt with hair pulling as a preteen, and I thought I'd grown out of it but ever since I've decided to go natural, I can't keep my hands out of my hair; sometimes pulling out small strands just to how my curls are coming along. (Gross, I know >_<) Any suggestions on how to cover up these patches? Or products/home remedies that can make my hair grow back?

Also, I thiiiink my hair type is 4b, but I'm not sure. What do you girls think?
