    I wanted to leave a comment in response to Sydney’s YouTube video on the use of steroid cream. I’ve been battling alopecia for ten years now. Two dermatologists-one was an African American woman-recommended I use rogain foam-also called minoxidil. DONT DO IT!!! It will make what healthy hair you have fall out. I’ve been doing the Listerine rinse and using Hair growth oil for about two years and am seeing some results. Thank you Sydney!

    I have suffered with CCCA for over ten years. I received my products today and immediately began to use them. I love the tingling feeling they give you makes it feel like it is really doing something to my scalp. I will upload some pictures soon.

    I don’t know what form of Alopecia I have. I was told, by my beautician, that the thinning in my crown was due to alopecia. The crown of my hair is the only place I have noticed thinning and the back of my hair is a long length. I have purchased many products with no success. After, watching your video (Thank GOD) I am trying the biotin and pumpkin seed oil. Thank you for sharing!!
