I'm confused and would like to know if this has happened to anyone else. I'm 35. Due to an illness I lost most of my hair. So I shaved it all off to start over. Before, my hair was type 3c, low porosity fine and dense hair. Now it is growing in type 4a medium porosity fine hair. Of course the products I used to use don't work anymore. But the heavy creams and butters suggested for my hair type leave it oily, heavy and greasy. Will my hair stay this new texture or go back to the way it used to be. Don't get me wrong, I love the new texture, but don't want to spend a fortune trying out dozens of new products. Has anyone gone through this and any suggestions. I also recently had a stroke and am on blood thinners. Does this factor in?

You need to find a good hairdresser who's experienced with this kind of thing, and has a background in how health affects the hair. Hormonal changes can change hair texture, for example, or going on and off hormones (birth control, or hormone replacement therapy, or whatever). You need to find a knowledgeable hairdresser who's studied this kind of thing. Often owners of small hairdresser businesses have this higher level of education and training.

Pretty unusual condition though.. but as far as i have seen many cases regarding hair loss , in my opinion lost hair cant be get back to normal as they were previously whether you using any product. Hope it works in your case.

My daughter lost all of her not very thick pin-straight hair. It grew back very thick and very curly.

I've lost most of my hair recently. Before, it was thick and wavy. Now, the hair that has grown back is fine and curly. It makes odd waves around my face. I've been trying different products and I also went with a lighter color to hide how thin my hair still is.
