HairNotGrowing

Patient

Q: Hello.
I'm a 16 year old African, in kenya.. I have a huge problem with my hair - IT DOESNT GROW! I have a history of relaxing my hair, dyeing it, heating etc (I damaged it badly) but to solve this i had to shave it ALL off and start again - so i did. However this didnt help anything! My hair reaches this certain level from then on DOES NOT GROW AT ALL. I DESPERATELY want big hair but it just doesnt grow from this point! I went to a dermatologist, got a blood test - nothing. He says I'm fine...I've tried everything...remedies, vitamin supplements...everything. Nothing Works...and i Know its not genetics because both my parents had long hair at my age.
PLEEASSEE HELP !
