04.22.00  HAIR?

PRP can cause thinning of all the hair anywhere on the body. This is both appearance altering and depressing. In addition, some medications, such as  retinoids and immunosuppressives, can cause hair loss to one degree or another. It differs with each individual. Some only have mild thinning; some lose all their hair, including eyelashes and eyebrows. Just remember, our collective experience suggests that it will grow back!

Keep your hair clean and, if you lose a large amount, look into the possibility of purchasing a wig for those times when you must go out in public. Wigs can be found online in almost every style and color, and the prices are very reasonable… anywhere from US$29 to US$79 for a washable fully styled wig.

I use dry shampoo a lot — especially, for the kids (three with Atypical Juvenile Onset PRP (Type 4) when they get the Vaseline or veggie oils in their hair.

My hair was breaking off. I purchased silk pillow cases after I read about people using silk and satin to prevent over drying of their hair and face.
