Another Kitchen Update
This is what led to my decision to take all of my hair down, (play around with it and take pics of my first My First Braidout) wash it and braid it back up. I needed to see if there was any additional hair loss anywhere else. Afterward, I made sure to make that braid very, very loose. I’m trying to assess it every day and keep it well moisturized. That little corner is getting really thin, whispy and short, and it’s making me nervous. Boo hooo hooo!
If I see any additional hair loss, I will most definitely make an appointment to go see a dermatologist. But on the upside, at least it appears to be confined to this small area. I’m not losing any more hair anywhere else back there. And it’s breaking off near the scalp, leaving some hair, even if it’s just peach fuzz, but that’s good cause it means the follicles aren’t damaged, and my hair will grow back.
But beyond that, I’m just at a loss here…did my hair dye really do this? I mean I know it could be a whole lot worse, and I’m thankful it’s not, but hmmm…did the dye break my hair off? And if it did…why only back here. We started the application of dye at my front hairline (which is where my gray hair is most concentrated) and worked our way to the back. Just like we always do. And when we started rinsing it out, we started at the back. That means the dye wasn’t even on the back as long as it was on the front. So now I’m starting to wonder if there’s something else going on here. Could this have been cause by something else? Something else I haven’t taken into account?
This is very perplexing to say the least. It makes it hard because I don’t really know what the problem is and how to avoid it in the future.
And so the saga continues… ***sigh***
