Hair growth for prom Watch

I am a sufferer of Trichotillomania, and have a small bald spot on my central hairline. It can be barely covered by my hair, and when the wind blows it can expose the ‘white scalp’. I have about half an inch to an inch of hair there and have been using castor oil masking every 3 nights and taking 5000ug of biotin supplements a day. I have just over a month until prom day and I’m too scared to go to the hairdresser for a trial as I’m afraid it will expose it. I haven’t even told my mother. Any suggestions for telling her or rapid hair growth? This is really inconvenient before exams haha 😂

I think you should go to the hairdressers for a trial and tell them you suffer from trichotillomania- they will probably be your best bet in helping you look after your hair mask your bald spot. Some of my hair fell out as a side effect to medication and going to the hairdressers really boosted my confidence! To encourage new growth, drink plenty of water and eat foods with healthy fats in; also avoid putting heat on your hair. You're on the right tracks by taking supplements and doing hair masks. I also think it might be worth telling your parents and going to the GP, as they will be able to help you long term.

Hope this helps!
