      Hello Cesca,

      There could be a number of factors to look at.
      1 – Traction alopecia How do you wear your hair i.e. lots of weaves, braids, pulled back or up?
      Constantly wearing weaves, braids, wearing hair pulled back or up too tightly does one thing: puts too much tension on hair and scalp. And this will lead to gradual hair loss. It can get pretty bad. If this is your case, stop wearing hair in tight hairstyles right away. And do hairstyles that put less tension on hair & scalp. Hairstyle examples: Twist out, braid out, twist and so on. Grow the hair back by massaging scalp on a weekly basis with a mixture of hair oils that promote hair growth. Oils like Jamaican black castor oil, peppermint oil and rosemary oil are just a few examples to start with. If you wish to keep it simple, Jamaican black castor oil will work just fine.

      2 – Alopecia: progressive and complete hair loss
      I don’t know if there is a way to reverse this but unfortunately could be your case. I would advice you to go and see a doctor to rule this out. This disease is a bit rare so don’t worry to much.

      I do hope this helps!

    I am now getting the chance to come explore your website fully. I love your tweets and your beautiful pics on IG. I love your beauty, you have true beauty from inside out. Your a sweet person.Your the first natural follower that I’ve been following that actually responds to my comments. I have read some of your tips and i will take them. I came back on here so I can check the post where you tell what products you need when your just starting out. I dont want to be a product junkie. I have been researching products that some people say that are good that have worked for them. As the saying goes just because it works for one or many, doesnt mean it will work for another. So maybe you can help me with that, what products should I really buy that will also stimulate growth and help it grow as well as keep it moist and healthy most important.
