Since June, I have tried to remain upbeat and focus on the positive; I have spent many a evening counting my blessings, and each morning brings a new mercy to give thanks for... But today, my heart is heavy. Today I acknowledge that this battle is over.
I have lost my locks.
Funny how- when I finally fell in love with my hair, every strand, kink, curl and knot- that's when I lost them all: every strand, kink, curl and knot.
My last retightening session was the last week in July. I used to need a session every 4-6 weeks but it has been almost 11 weeks and there is still no new growth.
Instead, there have been handfuls of lost locks. Over a third have already left my head, the rest are hanging by strands. I have such large bald spots that covering them with my own hair is no longer possible. This weekend I will visit a wig specialist. Had there been new growth amidst the bald patches there may have been hope for repairing the thinning locks and reattaching the lost ones. However this is not the case. I am facing total hair loss from my scalp which leaves me with two options: walk bald or hide under a 'hair replacement unit' . I'm not looking forward to having straight hair ( I've never seen a lock wig)!
Being ill sucks.
