...feeling sad Nikki @niksam


Has anyone gone to the extreme of having their head shaved? I was in so much pain and areas were infected. The infection is clear, but my scalp isn’t. I want to grow my hair back, but right now that’s not an option.

I haven't shaved my head with it but I did go from shoulder length to pixie crop a few years ago. I grew it back again as I didn't really find it made a difference for me, but importantly there was no infection involved for me. If I ever get one I would possibly shave it just like you did! I think anything is worth a try when it's that severe.

I haven't shaved my hair but have cut it really short so I can manage with oiling & treating it daily. My hair has also fallen out in the front so I had to cut it ..Its grown a bit since & I'm now not sure whether I want to keep it short or leave it to grow...decisions decisions decisions!!!!
