Dear Women! I applied to the forum not to tell a panic story but a success story. I read a lot before and now I think its time to share my story. It started all around 2/3 years ago. I lost 14 pounds, quit the anti conception, moved to another country, got a tropical disease etc. Well result: my hair started to fall out like hell. I had no clue of what it could be exactly. In the beginning of 2011, I decided to cut my hair short (From over the boobs up to my EARS!!!) to see if I could fix it a little bit because it was so thin just like my little pink. Well it was terrible, I lost my identity, myself, my being, my happiness, my innocence, my self confidence, just everything in just one day. I started to try expansive pills, shampoos en shit and washed and I started to blow dry my hair every day to make it look like something. Well nothing helped and I had to live with it and I hated my hair, thought every single minute of the day of my hair, hated every girl with beautiful hair and started to read about hair all day when I had to study, or other important stuff to do etc. My wedding was beautiful but I could not have the dream look because of my hair etc. etc. etc. I thought: "I will never be happy again if I do not get my hair back, well that were very sad thoughts". In 2012, I went finally to the doctor and they gave me ANACAPS and minoxidil, which was terrible. My hair started to fall out like crazy and my eyes were red and I was dizzy all the time! So after one month I could not take it any more and I decided to do the following in December 2012: From the microgynon I started the Yasmin pill (do not know if this was a good idea, because now I am getting fat and my libido is 0 and I am scared to stop with it, because I am scared my hair will fall out again, as happened in the past when I stopped with my other pills, so I have to figure this one out) I only use soft shampoos from lavera and started to wash my hair 2/3 times a week. (yes I walked with shit ugly hair in the beginning) Because my hair was so dry I discovered that it need my own natural oils, which only start to produce it self after the third day I washed it, after a view weeks my hair looks still ok after 3 days without washing. Further, The night before I wash my hair I put oils in my hair, like jojoba or coconot oil, advocato oil etc. do a massage and put in the roots and ends. So I do this 2 or 3 times a week. (this treatment is a MIRACLE believe me) I started to take acid folic 800, biotine 5000 and silicea gel every day. I started to live more healthy, with fruit and vegetables smoothies, fish etc. I started to hoop dance Satin pillow case well guess what? I am happy again, my hair gets back its volume, its getting longer after two years! Its getting thicker, I have new growth, My curl is coming back and this is all in 6 months!, In the past couple of months people that just got to know me said: * "Your hair is so beautiful!!" * Girl: "Wow your hair is so thick, I think I now a very nice style for you!" Me: "haha no it just looks like that, if you feel it you see its all baked air" (however this did me realize that I can create the illusion of having thick hair! ) * "Are those curls of your own?" said a girl with incredible thick and long an beautiful hair. Me: "yes they are mine" Girl: "wow wish they were mine" (believe me my curl was gone for 2 years) Well, you can understand that these comments were so important for me ! and I could not even dream of such comments 2 years ago and you can understand that those girls are my best friends now . Good luck every body who is still in the dark valley , believe me you can clim b out of it! I am not totally cured yet, but still going strong and I am getting there, life is to beautiful and what is happening to our minds because of our hair is so scary, don't let it get you!
