Hello, all! I’ve been steady Minoxidiling as much as I can, so that the results will keep coming. I have a little bit of bad news this week…well, unsure news to say the least. I actually suspect that the Minoxidil may be losing effectiveness for me… . For a while now, I have been experiencing shedding every time I get a shower. I reported a while back that this had started happening, but I thought it would slow down. It hasn’t. It isn’t that the shedding has been too terribly bad, but it has been there. In addition, my hair seems to be extra fragile. For example, when I try to pull Minoxidil flakes from my hair, sometimes, I will end up pulling a few strands of hair out as well. The hair never hurts my scalp when it comes out…it just pulls right out like it’s barely in there or something.
I’m not sure exactly what is happening, but I hope to God that this stuff retains my hair. I do not want to end up back where I was anytime soon. I am 22 years old, and I would hate to be almost bald at this age. I know that the time will come at some point, but I just don’t want it to come right now.
I’m not sure if I am just self-conscious or not, but I feel like my hair looks noticeably thinner. Of course, it always looks a little thinner when it gets longer, but I am just not sure. I’m getting a haircut this weekend for my engagement pictures on Sunday, so I guess we will see how my shorter hair looks next week. Until then, peace out, and stay steady Minoxidiling.
