Black Hair Care: The Truth About Brazilian Blowouts & Thinning Hair

black woman with curly hair

I am a recent Kidney Transplant patient of 2 years and was having some hair loss the first year and now my hair has began to grow, but it is hard to maintain my hair and keep moisture.

I am taking anti-rejection medication at a high dose because of my fast metabolism. Now with the need to return to steroids because of rejection, which increases my blood sugars and medication for that, I don’t know what to do about my hair. I am tired of braiding it and wearing hair extensions.

What do I do from this point forward?

Hello Shawnice,

It’s common for women to experience changes in their hair due to medication or health. It’s important to consult a professional stylist, preferably one with experience in caring for stressed, fragile hair.
