I finally broke down and got some Rogaine. I was hesitant because once you start using it you have to use it forever or the hair it grows falls out. But I’ve been doing natural remedies for more than a year now and haven’t seen any improvement. I’ve tried to wear scarves and headbands to conceal the fact that my hairline is gone, but I finally had to reconcile myself to the fact that they give me a headache. So yeah, I’ve got to grow some hair! I get the generic Rogaine. It’s about $20 for a three-month supply. You apply a dropperfull to the bald areas twice a day. It smells pretty strongly of alcohol and I figure that can’t be good, so I’ve also been using Profectiv Temple balm. It seems to be very moisturizing. Haven’t got the Jamaican black castor oil yet. I’ll do that next week. I’m keeping my hair in protective styles, twists, and I won’t color anymore. Though that will probably only last until someone refers to me as Kell’s grandmother, AGAIN.
Both the Rogaine and the Profectiv claim results in three months. I’ve only been using them consistently for a couple of weeks and Whit claims he sees a definite improvement. I’ll post some pics when I have something worth posting. Anyone else use Rogaine? Did you have results? Did it fall out when you stopped?
One thought on “Hairline Tragedy Part II”
I hope the Rogaine works for you. I don’t know that much about it, but I almost looked into when my hair started shedding. I hope you still get the Black caster oil. There’s a dermatologist here in Michigan who also specializes in hair loss. Dr. Sandra Brown. She has her own products and sometimes gives you a vitamin B-12 shot. A friend of mine who was also losing her hair line told me that she purchased some of her products and it seems to be working for her. I believe Dr. Brown’s web address is, myhairmyskin.com
