Dermatologist’s Top Hair Loss Tips

DermAngelo
Hair loss is one of the most common conditions I see, and unfortunately many people have wasted time with supposed "miracle cures" before they even come to see me. Hair loss can be frustrating, worrisome and even down right depressing BUT there are many solutions that can help. Here are my top tips for hair loss! 1. Time is hair! I say this nearly every time I talk about hair loss. Time is hair! What do I mean by that? Every type of hair loss is better treated early rather than later. This is especially true of conditions like central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA). This is a type of scarring hair loss, meaning that once the affect hair has fallen out, it will never grow back. However, when treated early, we can halt the progression and preserve as much hair as possible. That's why it's so important to see a dermatologist as soon as you notice hair loss. 2. Don’t put too much hope in supplements! While there are a whole host of supplements on the market for hair loss, many don't have convincing data supporting their use as a single agent to regrow hair. Even more important is the fact that some hair supplements may actually be dangerous. Case in point: biotin. It has been touted as a treatment for hair loss for years. However, there is no data supporting its efficacy for hair growth, and it might actually be dangerous in some cases. 3. Know that there are options! While the prospect of regrowing your hair might seem hopeless, there are plenty of options available like topical minoxidil for androgenic alopecia (male or female pattern hair loss), laser devices and prescription treatments. As I stated before, checking in with a dermatologist will be the first step to find what's right for you. Rogaine - 5% Minoxidil Foam for Hair Regrowth #cheriepartner #dermatologist #hairloss #hair

ACV for hair loss
3 years ago I started losing hair most likely due to stress. Every time I brushed may hair with a brush or with my hair and when I washed my hair which I did almost everyday because I have oily hair, clumps of it would fall out. My ponytail went from a nickel size thickness to a less than dime size thickness. I was losing hair all over my scalp. Occasionally my scalp would get so itchy right after a wash but there wasn’t dandruffs. I tried Rogaine - 5% Minoxidil Foam for Hair Regrowth for months straight and I would get an increase of hair loss and white hairs which I never had prior to using it. I even use egg masks and coconut oil masks which I have used prior to my hair loss. I even took NATURE'S BOUNTY - Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies religiously. None had slowed down my hair loss nor promoted hair growth. I came upon a post one day on a google search about how this person used an BRAGG - Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with mother hair mask for their hair loss. Because I do already drink a ACV drink daily I decided to try it in my hair. I used it consistently for 2 months every other day now. I have seen so many baby hair sticking out of my head. And yes I look crazy but I’m so happy to share with you that it works for me so it could work for you as well. I diluted my ACV in a 2 ACV to 1 water ratio. I just used tap water. I poured a little bit into my scalp and massaged it in for about 30 seconds and left it in my hair for about 5 to 10 minutes, rinsed my hair, then shampooed my hair regularly. I found massaging to wet and dry hair doesn’t make much difference. There will be residual ACV smell when your hair is wet but after it dries the smell does away. ACV also balances the pH of you hair so lately I have been able to maintain my hair to a second day without it looking extra greasy. Today, my pony tail thickened up a little and I can’t wait to see more hair growth. I hope this post helps. Don’t forget to spot test the solution in case your skin is sensitive to ACV.

PRODUCTS THAT HELPED WITH HAIR LOSS!
Hair loss can be an incredibly painful experience. It’s embarrassing and exhausting trying to hide. Most times whatever I did to hide it caused more damage. It’s so easy not to feel beautiful when you fall outside of the traditional standards of beauty. In my personal experience I felt like no one else I knew was going through the same thing I was and I just wanted my hair to grow like everyone else. I tried so many products and would get my hopes up when I saw some progress only to be devastated again and again. My hair loss is a direct result of stress and would happen around big deadlines or when something big was happening in my life which would create even more stress! I have very dry hair brittle hair, that doesn’t do well when it is out in its natural state and requires a lot of maintenance. 2 products I use in addition using ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Shampoo ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner TROPIC ISLE LIVING - Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Therapy deep conditioning once a month, keeping my hair in protective styles like braids and wearing satin bonnets to sleep are Women’s Rogaine and Hairfinity vitamins. Rogaine - 5% Minoxidil Foam for Hair Regrowth - this is a clear watery liquid. You are to apply to the area of your scalp that you experiencing hair loss twice a day. It comes with a dropper so it’s easy to be precise about where you are placing the product. I have hair loss along my hairline so I apply the product and then Pat it into my hair to prevent it from dripping. It can get a bit sticky on your hands. This is not a product that works overnight so you have to be patient but it can have amazing results with continued use. #Hairfinity - Healthy Hair Vitamins[products]#[FiveStars] - LOVE THIS PRODUCT! This produces speedy results! Your results are based on how fast your hair grows and they may not be the same for everyone but in 3 weeks to a month of taking these pills I started seeing my bald patches starting to darken and I feel like my hair was growing at a faster rate. I started using this product first so I have seen the results of this on its own and they are amazing! My stress induced hair loss happens at the top of my head and Hairfinity helped my hair regrow in this area pretty quickly but the thin areas around my hairline still needed extra help and that’s why I started using Rogaine. This is something I wouldn’t talk about for a long time but once I realized it happens to more people than I thought I decided started to feel less embarrassed about something that is of my control. #CherieCreator

My Hack for Hair Loss and Hair Health
My Hack for Hair Loss and Hair Health
Way back in 2016, at the young age of 19, I was challenged with significant hair loss and thinning. Whilst there are many, much more horrible things to be faced with, losing a lot of your hair at a young age is still very much a nightmare, particularly for someone like me, whose hair is important to their identity and how they like to present themselves. I noticed more and more of my scalp becoming visible when my hair was tied up, and my hairline was getting thinner, and on one side even looked like it was receding! I eventually went to see a dermatologist about my concerns. He told me that my hair was indeed falling at an increased rate, but that it was growing back too, just at a much slower rate than I was losing it. He said this was likely due to stress, as I was a busy full-time student, had a part-time job, and a crazy personal life at the time dealing with anxiety. This is just my personal story, but I want to recommend a hair hack for healthier hair (and nails) that I have been using ever since. You’ll have seen a million hair, skin and nails multivitamins marketed across the internet, but the ultimate hack lies in the main, active ingredient, called Biotin. Biotin is a great product that supports your body in strengthening brittle hair and nails, and plays a role in metabolising some amino acids and fatty acids, which are related to the production of protein (found in hair, skin and nails as Keratin 🧬). Any brand of Biotin will have the same effect, but I have included a picture of my latest bottle in this post. I combined this with regular scalp massages using my finger tips, as well as extra care to detangle and gently comb my hair after washing, to prevent unnecessary breakage. ❗️Remember to consult your healthcare provider before taking any supplements on a daily basis, just to make sure that the ingredients are suitable for you and any other medications you may take. When taking Biotin for a number of weeks, you will start to notice improved hair and nail health, as well as a slight increase in the speed of hair and nail growth over time. Products containing Biotin support your body in the biological functions related to hair, skin and nail health, supplementing these functions along with your diet. ❗️This product is not a replacement for a formal diagnosis or medical treatment. Depending on your unique hair loss situation, you may require prescribed medical intervention! This product might not work for you, in other words, but for those who struggle with hair fall due to stress and anxiety, this may do the trick.

For oil hair, my choice is…
For oil hair, my choice is…
Making a brief of my hair, medium density, soft and thin, easily get oil and it always stick to the scalp. I have two biggest hair concerns, one is how to make my hair fluffy. The other is how to control oil. I don’t want to wash my hair every day. It makes me crazy! I have introduced Davines before. This brand has two well-known product lines, one is Naturaltech, and the other is OI Essential oil hair care. The former is for people with sensitive scalps and the latter is comprehensive hair care product. There are three popular types of the former. One is the yellow bottle I posted before, which helps us to remove dandruff and relieve itching. One is red, which prevents hair loss, but I haven't tried yet. Another one is the purple one I want to introduce today. OI series extracted from Carmine extract of Amazon Basin that helps protect hair against oxidation and repair the inner structure of hair strands. I have used both, so today I would like to introduce a davines combination, purple naturaltech shampoo with OI conditioner. When shampooing, you can have the slightly cool feeling of mint to refresh your scalp. Since there's no silicone oil in shampoo, your hair won't be as smooth as it should be. This purple packaging is for sensitive scalp. After using it, once every two days shampooing can become every three days. After adding OI conditioner, your hair really looks like new hair, shiny! Scent is also one of the most advanced hair products I've ever used. The texture of OI looks like thick milk. Using method is same as common conditioner. Wring out the water on hair, and making the conditioner stay 3 minutes on hair are the correct way. Every time I go out after washing my hair, my friends ask me what brand I use and how it smells so good! I started with the Nounou hair mask, that is the Mediterranean line. I was completely attracted by the packaging. Then the NaturalTech line and OI line are slowly discovered. As a consumer who has used all three series of products, Nounou is my personal favorite. In order, Mediterranean is greater than OI than Naturaltech.

Do you ever have hair fallout concern? I have to admit that hair fallout is my biggest trouble… I’m really tired of sweeping the hair on the ground every time I blow my hair dry. Also, fine and thinning hair really makes me look older and my face seems bigger lol. So I started to look for some hair growth products. KÉRASTASE has a famous serum helping hair growth but it’s a little expensive for me. Grow gorgeous is well-known for its hair growth series and the price is acceptable, so I bought it from the official online shop (luckily with a 20% discount).    It claims to have a unique complex of active ingredients and this ultra-concentrated serum works to increase thickness of each strand by up to 13%.   The effect is amazing.   I already use this stuff for 2 months. The liquid is lightweight, I use it after blowing dry my hair. I usually have 10 drops in my hand and carefully massage it into my hair line. As to the scalp, I prefer apply some drops directly. I love the smell so the massage process is enjoyable. It’s hard to see an obvious difference in the first weeks. You need to be patient and keep using it in the right way. It really works in the long term. I did notice my hair stronger, healthier and more alive! It looks fuller and softer, which is a healthy change. Now I can make kinds of hairstyles I love. This serum is definitely worth every penny. I will continue to buy it.   If you’re going through the same problem like me, you may give it a try. But remember it really depends. I’m planning to try KÉRASTASE when I have enough budget. If you’ve tried, please tell me your feelings.

Bloom your hair! A shampoo that surprises fine hair✨
Bloom your hair! A shampoo that surprises fine hair✨
Girls who have fine flat hair are always struggle with hair volume and style. The roots of fine hair are always lacking strength to support the hair. Therefore, fine, flat hair makes the whole hair style lack vitality. I have straight and fine hair that easily gets oily and bogged down by weight. If I blow dry it without product, it will be super flat and extremely soft. So I really cares about how to give my hair volume and bounce. I have tried a lot of volumizing shampoo and thisBriogeo - Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Hair Volumizing Shampoo really impressed me. I bought it from Sephora. It costs $24 with 236ml. It’s not cheap but worth it. Just like its name, this product really enhances fine hair. It can turn fine, limp hair into locks that are full of bounce and amped up hair volume. My hair is easy to get oily, even after one day without a wash. I found this shampoo made it so I still had clean hair for 2 days! . I also have some slight hair loss and I felt like I noticed less hair falling out and more hair regrowth after I used this for about 2 months. This shampoo is 93% naturally derived, and provides 6-free hair care. To be specific, this shampoo is infused with follicle supporting ginseng, biotin, and vitamin B5 to provide hair health benefits from root to tip and promote long-term fullness. Also, it is a shampoo with no harsh sulfates, no silicones, no phthalates, no parabens, no DEA, no artificial dyes. With those natural and harmless ingredients, this shampoo deeply clean my hair and smells great. You may encounter a small problem when using this shampoo, that is, the hair is tangled after washing. Here is a tip: gently brush your hair before the shower then the issue is avoided. Please comment questions or suggestions!

Struggling with hair loss?
Struggling with hair loss?
Postpartum hair loss is real and there’s nothing we could do to avoid it as it is a natural process. However, I decided to try out this serie, made out with garlic and Capixyl which has great properties and benefits for our hair. It strengthen the hair and stimulates growth. I’m in love with this serie now, although I’m going through all of this hormonal changes after having the baby, look at my hair growth while using this products, pretty sure if I was not using them by this time I would have loss way more hair, but instead it’s growing healthy thanks to this serie.❤️ I use them 3 times per week. That’s me on the photo on May 30 and July 17. Can you tell if there’s a difference? Cz I do see some 😍 First I use the FARMASI - Dr.C Tuna Vitalizing Concentrated Garlic Oil to massage my scalp and I leave it there for 30 minutes. Then I wash my hair massaging with the shampooFARMASI - Dr.C Tuna Vitalizing Hair Mask Garlic Extract Finally I use the FARMASI - Dr.C Tuna Vitalizing Hair Mask Garlic Extract leaving the mask for 3-5 minutes, then I rinse and that’s it. Shampoo and mask come in small and big, I like the big size because I have long hair and my daughter also uses them. Feel free to contact me if you will like to order or if you have any questions❤️great quality and very affordable prices🔥
