Hello! and I hope that here I can get some insight on my current problem. It seems as though every ten years or so, I would have a bald spot on the back of my hair; well, it came around 2008, but with some amla oil and maintenance, I was able to get it growing pretty well again. Fast forward this to 2009, when I find out that I had edema; they gave me medication for it, and from that time until this, my hair has fallen out. I tried to get it growing again; no dice. asking around, trying to get some help and until now, it took a young sister in the beauty supply store to tell me that if you take blood pressure medicine for the problem, then, your hair won't grow and that is how I found out that that was the culprit of my hair falling out. I have long since stopped medication but for the most part, my hair hasn't grown back and I would like some help in the right direction. I keep it covered, shampoo condition and oil it. but that's it. my hair dresser said it broke into patches recently and it is not easy for my hair.:confused:If someone could point me in the right direction, I will be grateful.

Have you considered Avapro?

I use cayenne pepper as a paste, I apply it to my bald spots to help stimulate growth. Here's my progress thus far.

I have taken a break from it, but will start back up again this month. I also use JBCO/Castor oil.

some of you spoke about the Jamaican Castor Oil and found out about it so I went and ordered it right away along with the pomade/grease and I truly look forward to it. thanks again.

Do your patches itch or flake?

Apply a coconut oil or olive oil in your hair. Also don't forget to massage your hair every time you take a bath cause it's good for blood circulation.

Cinnamon oil works excellent on bald spots or patches. My daughter had a patch and Espiritu deCanela worked wonders on her hair.
