Help, I'm new here, advice for topical treatment
Good Morning everyone, I am new here.
Firstly I'll explain a little, I have been pulling for a few year's now, all through anxiety, stress and ocd. It got it worse in 2017 when I was pregnant with my 1st child, had a horrific pregnancy and wasn't sure if she would make it, she did and she is now nearly 4 and healthy, but I only use to pull from the crown (thick bumpy hair's) but through my first pregnancy it got a whole lot worse and I pulled everywhere, my hair went so so soooooo thin, anyhow I stopped when she was here healthy, well I say stopped, the urge was reduced and I still pulled a little but not as much. So now I have a 4 month old beautiful boy, hormones are absolutely everywhere, and my hair came out at the front (postpartum) the pulling started again😭 I wanted to get both sides even, I think this is where my ocd kicks in, it's the first time I have ever pulled the front of my hair, but now have 2 huge bald patches 😢 I shaved my hair off as I had a pixie cut and it just looked blumming awful (dalmation like) I felt good shaving it off and I am going to continue doing this until I see the new hair coming through so I can start again (i know they don't recommend shaving but this was the best option for my ocd too) , if I'd of left the pixie cut it would of been worse, I would of started pulling more to try and even those patches up and it will of got a whole lot worse, so fresh start here, it can be hard some day's as I have that urge and I go for my eyebrows but manage to stop myself wahey . So after me harping on and on has anyone had successful growth with any products, I am using coconut oil and I mix with rosemary essential oil, in taking viviscal supplements, I am forcing myself to drink lots of water and my lovely dad has brought me a LLLT light (red light Low level laser machine) I would love to hear your recommendations and how long it took for new hair growth to establish itself . Thank you everyone, I feel so much better writing all this down, my mum is wonderful and my partner but they say.... Just stop pulling, as if I haven't thought of that xx huge love xx
Ps it's the first time I have pulled out at the front, it always grows back at the back but I think because I can see the bald spots and I check everyday it seems like such a long journey, only been 2 weeks 😂.
