    Thank you! I actually think I found a solution for the time being. A hair topper. It’s like a partial wig that goes on top. But I will read what you sent as well Jodi. Thank you.

    I talked to my dermatologist about frequent dyeing since my hair was falling out and not regrowing. She said there’s no scientific studies linking dyeing to it. She said she couldn’t treat me internally since I have MG and am already on meds for systemic inflammation, but that the other concern was nutrition for the hair and my nails which are splitting. She gave me a steroid solution for my scalp and said to try Nutrafol. She said if I could take individual supplements instead since my multivitamin already had a lot of the same ones. So I take Centrum and Olly gummies since they have most of the same ingredients for a fraction of the price. When I went back in 3 months she said it was definitely growing back. It’s been 6 months now and even my family has noticed it’s growing in, and my nails ate stronger. I still wear hats, wigs and wide headbands to protect my scalp from the sun, but I’m much happier now and sometimes wear no head covering online, at least when I’ve dyed my hair

      In the end I decided to stop coloring my hair. I have noticed just going into the salon and breathing the chemicals seem to make me feel bad for a haircut. I figured that was my answer.
