As of today, I haven’t found any other bald spots. However, I still worry that they may re-occur. Because my hair is so thick, it is often hard to check every area of my scalp for other possible bald spots. Regardless, I am thankfully that my experience was not worse and that I was able to get treatment to resolve the situation. Another positive outcome from my experience was that being diagnosed was one of the contributing factors to me going natural. Alopecia Areata may not be related to hair relaxers, but I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t adding any outside elements that would increase hair loss or affect my scalp any further.
