In the final few weeks leading up to the summer exams my unusual exam strategy had resumed, and it’s fair to say that that my pillow has consistently had a good covering of hair each morning. The minoxidil and dietary supplement strategy had not hugely improved things..! Right then, however, my main concern was getting through the final exams.
Conclusions: My girlfriend at the time had told me that if I took Propecia then she would no longer sleep with me. This clearly meant that Propecia was temporarily out the window. I had found that the more itchiness / pain in my scalp I experienced, the greater the extent of my hair loss. Therefore, it seemed fairly clear to me that I needed to find out what was causing my scalp to hurt, and to remove these things from my life!
Foreword to the rest of this website: I spent the next 6 years working out the various different factors causing my scalp to itch and and my hair to fall out. Believe me – there are many contributing things! I have found that I have become incredibly perceptive to my hair follicles. Yes – I am probably unhealthy obsessed with hair loss. And you will come to realise just how much thought and experimentation I have put into this as you read on! However, I do think about other things; I am not devoting my entire life to not going bald. Well, not quite anyway!
Also, I have not fully succeeded yet. As I write this, I can feel a slight tingle in the top of my scalp – of rare feeling now – telling me that something isn’t quite right. However, at least now I know exactly what has caused it, and if I had the been a bit more disciplined in the last couple of days, it wouldn’t be there at all!
