I just came back from the dermatologist and he told me that I have Alopecia Areata. I had been losing hair for some time around the crown and I figured just as much. It affects perfectly healthy people and is pretty rare. I was given a few injections in my scalp to help stimulate hair regrowth. I have to go back in four weeks. I’ll update again soon.

I almost forgot to upload these photos! I took the above pictures todayand the one below is from last week.
It’s been two months since the last update! Sorry for the hiatus, lovelies. We’ll be updating more frequently now. Anyway, I am one month away from my first year fully natural! Yes, it’s been eleven months since I’ve chopped my hair!
