FleureDeCheveux - thank you for your post. I believe I have two forms of hair loss. Unfortunately, one is scarring alopecia and naturally western medicine doctors - say it is irreversible. I have short hair in some of the area, which may be TA. While the damage may be irreversible I won't give up. (Several doctors told me I would never walk again without very invasive surgery which would result in very restricted mobility. 16 years later I'm still walking- no surgery
I considered a hair transplant - but dismissed the idea, for the time being. May re-consider later.
Thank you for all of the great info!
