bald patches on scalp - will my hair ever grow back??
new to this forum and have been reading over a lot of posts that already seem very helpful. it’s so soothing to see i’m not alone in the tricho battle.
i am 23 and have struggled with pulling my eyebrows out since i was 15. for the past year or 2 it’s worsened as i started going for my eyelashes and scalp as well. ive tried wearing long fake nails to make it harder to pull my brows and lashes, but that doesn’t stop me from the hair on my head.
in may i shaved my head completely bald bc the patches were so bad. i experienced even regrowth within like a month or 2. i was pull free from may-september while my hair was growing in. i relapsed once the hair was long enough to grab at again. i buzzed it super short so that it wouldn’t look so terrible. now i have 2 distinct completely bald patches on the top of my scalp. it’s been almost a month since i stopped pulling at those spots and i’m panicking bc i see NO trace of regrowth this time.. not even any stubble or fine hairs. but different spots that were previously pulled at recovered before? i’m worried i’ve done some permanent damage. i’ve been massaging castor oil into my scalp and sleeping with a shower cap. ANY tips would be appreciated
