Thread: Newbie saying hello!

    Default Newbie saying hello!

    Hello everyone! I've lurked on this forum for quite some time and am finally trying to grow my hair long after a rough spell with stress-induced telogen effluvium.

    Graduate school stress caused me to lose about 50% of my hair density within the span of a few months and it was rather traumatizing. I used to easily grow hair that could brush my tailbone, but I haven't been able to grow my hair past BSL since that event. Something finally changed in recent weeks and I'm beginning to see a bit of length (slowly but surely) come in! I'm hoping to be active on this forum as I attempt to grow out the hair loss I experienced and work towards a healthy head of hair!

    My current routine is using a Klorane oat milk shampoo (looking for gentle sulfate shampoo alternatives, this one is somewhat irritating to my scalp) and the Kiehl's Formula 133 hair conditioner. I mix collagen into my tea daily and try to maintain a good intake of iron and vitamin D. I tend to have to wash my hair daily as I have very acne-prone skin, but try to keep it very light.

    Happy to meet all of you~!

    Howdy, good to meet you! All of my sympathies for the grad school stress--I'm a dissertating PhD student.
