My hair does not grow at the same rate. The left side of my head seems to grow hair at a normal rate, however the right side barely grows at all. Theres a good 2 inches in difference. The left side of my hair sits right below my shoulder, but the right side barely even touches shoulder length. Its extremely frustrating. This started happening about a year ago. There has been no major changes to my diet or lifestyle at all. I use deep repair masks and conditioners. I get my hair trimmed regularly. I use heat protectants when I blow dry and flat iron my hair. Im running out of ideas. Meanwhile, my hair is everywhere. I always have little hairs on the back of my shirt, and when I brush my hair, there is so much breakage. My pillow has hair all over it. Im 22 years old, in good health, i have a decent diet, and am fairly active. My hair stylist seemed very concerned about this. She said its not normal for someone like me to have so much breakage. Please Help! Why isnt it growing consistently? And what should I do to fix it? Im already taking a multi vitamin and Biotin. Its just not working!View Thread
