For those who have encountered a bald spot, you know the feeling is not pleasant. Your emotions may range from shock to frustration, but before you lose it, here’s what you need to do to recover:
Stay in Touch
Take action right away
Under no circumstances should you ever ignore this. Seeing a bald spot is your hair’s cry for help. Left untreated things can get really bad and damage may be permanent.
You may need to take a trip to the doctor
Do you know what caused the bald spot? If you have absolutely no idea where this spot came from, please go to the doctor and have them evaluate. If it is related to a condition the earlier that you get treatment, the more likely your odds are to have a more effective experience before things get out of control.
Determine the cause and ditch the bad habit
If you know for certain that the bald spot came from too much strain on your hair from something like too tight braids or you have mild chemical damage stop the damage in its tracks by stopping the cause.
Keep the manipulation of this area low
Don’t keep picking at the spot, try your best to let it rest and leave it alone.
Stay away from heat and chemicals
Both heat and chemicals take a toll on your hair, it’s best that you avoid them so that your damage doesn’t get worse.
Moisturize this area often
When you moisturize your hair make sure this area gets tons of nourishment.
Realize it’s going to take some time
It may take couple of months or even a few before you see a drastic difference. Our hair only grows 1/2 inch per month on average, so be patient.
