Today’s “Ask Me” comes from Carrie. Carrie wanted to know how the heck I grow my hair so long, even with hair loss (note: she doesn’t have hair loss herself and was just curious!).
I do feel that 90% of it is luck. I’ve always had no issues growing out my hair, and growing it fast.
(In fact, I always thought if I could somehow cut my hair in half and then apply the cut half to my scalp I’d be in a really good place!)
I know many women with hair loss experience a lot of breakage as their loss progresses since the hair loses strength over time. I haven’t experienced that quite just yet. Although, the hair right next to my ears could be starting to as that hair is a bit shorter on both sides (about chin-length).
That product is a shampoo, and I’ll include my affiliate link to the Pura d’Or shampoo on Amazon. I last purchased it 18 months ago, so it lasted quite a long time!
This shampoo helps to block and wash away DHT (an androgen), which is known to cause hair follicles to miniaturize and lead to hair loss.
Maybe this allows my hair to stay healthier longer, and therefore grow to lengths it wouldn’t if I didn’t block DHT?
But I’ll keep using it because it’s easy and if it helps even just 1%, I’ll take it. 🙂

What are Ask Me posts? Short, mostly-video posts in which I let the video do the talking to answer a reader question. If you have a question you’d like featured in an Ask Me post, please contact me to possibly add it to the queue!
